A low-cost way to monitor tension output, the Digital Tension Meter (DTM) is perfect for applications where access to tension control parameters is not required. Operators can mount a control away from the web to get feedback on current web tension via a backlit display and illuminated digits. The DTM is encased in high-impact plastic to withstand demanding conditions. A sealed front panel meets industry-standard NEMA 4X/IP65 specifications for wash-down and dusty environments. This meter can be used with any tension sensor amplifier by reading the 0 to 1 mA meter output reference.
Tidland’s Raptor Series Air Powered Lug Chucks are easy to use and maintain and help eliminate the core damage usually associated with shaftless applications. The Air Powered Lug Chuck is ideal for high-speed printing, laminating, sheeting applications on unwind flying or zero speed splicers and other shaftless unwind/rewind applications. Unlike other chucks, Tidland’s Raptor Series Air Powered Chucks offer on-machine maintenance and toolless adapter changes from 76.2 mm (3 inch) to 305 mm (12 inch) cores in less than 5 seconds.
The Ultra-Lightweight GX Air Shaft is made with lightweight, high-strength aluminum and an innovative 2-piece expanding element. It delivers unmatched performance in many unwind and rewind applications. Operators’ backs will be saved as this shaft is one of the leading ergonomic solutions for converting applications and has helped many converters reduce or eliminate workers’ compensation claims due to overexertion and heavy lifting.
GX shafts are available to suit a large variety of core sizes and are part of Tidland’s complete line of ergonomic solutions for converters, which includes the ever-popular Force5 Air Chuck and Ultrashaft Carbon Fiber Air Shaft.
D490 Differential Shafts hold rolls straight and true. Interchangeable cartridges allow you to determine how the shaft engages the core to best suit the material and core you’re running. Choose from a heavy gauge wire spring design (D490S) for fiber cores, or a 2-row, 12-ball, torque activated design (D490B) for fiber or PVC cores.
The result is improved finished roll quality, reduced scrap and fast, easy setups for even the most sensitive materials. Because D490 Differential Shafts are manufactured in North America, Europe and China, they are easily sourced and supported worldwide. All components conform to Tidland’s high quality standards and are interchangeable regardless of where the shaft is installed.
The NimCor Roll Restorer quickly turns seemingly unusable stock back into profitable inventory by helping to salvage virtually any roll with a crushed or damaged core. The Roll Restorer can also be used to install shafts while restoring damaged rolls.
