The MAGPOWR TR-5 Tension Readout is a device for measuring tension in a moving web, strand, wire or narrow tape. It uses either one or two MAGPOWR load cells and interconnection cables.
This system can be used on any non-driven idler roll or at any position where the wrap angle of the web or strand does not change. Each load cell contains four foil type strain gages bonded to a sensing beam. These gages convert the load on the roll or sheave to an electrical signal. Within the TR-5, the signal from the load cells is amplified and displayed on the tension meter.
The amplifier of the TR-5 has low drift and high linearity, with a gain control range of 8:1 and tare adjustment of 50%. An auxiliary 0 to 10 VDC, or 4 to 20 mADC output is provided for interfacing to other products or systems.
Strong and versatile, Tidland Lug Shafts deliver superior performance in the widest range of converting applications. Unmatched for positive holding power, the lug-style design eliminates core damage, prevents roll slip through fast startups and shutdowns, and minimizes vibration at high web speeds. Simple modular construction and standardized components mean quick off-the-shelf spares service and easy in-plant maintenance when necessary.
Series 500 Lug Shaft – Air
The Series 500 Lug Shaft is designed for light- to heavy-duty applications in 50.8 mm (2 inch) to 152.4 mm (6 inch) ID cores; often used in center unwind and rewind applications with either fiber or steel cores. These reliable shafts are constructed of alloy steel, aluminum, or lightweight, composite materials – depending on usage and requirements.
Series 550 Lug Shaft – Mechanical
The Series 550 Lug Shaft is designed for medium- to heavy-duty in 76.2 mm (3 inch) ID cores; often used in center unwind and rewind applications with either fiber or steel cores. The shaft body is constructed of 4150 heat treated steel or lightweight, composite materials. Each shaft is built to order and has as much as 85% fewer moving parts than other mechanical shafts.
Built upon the industry-leading Performance Series platform, Mark Andy Digital Series HD is a commercial approach for any size job. It leverages the advantages of digital with the proven capabilities of flexo printing to provide the most profitable total production hybrid solution.
Versatility is important for so many pieces of equipment, accessories and components, yet so few actually deliver. Tidland’s expansion shafts are specifically designed for applications where core size variation is common. Operators can adjust the core diameter of the shaft while it remains on the machine, eliminating the need to stock multiple shafts and drastically reducing setup time.
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.
