Mk4 Tension Stand


Tension Stands are critical to the production of  uniformly cut staple fiber.  Correct tension prior to cutting assures that the fiber is presented to the cutter properly. Tension stands are matched to the cutter and to the overall process.  Upstream tension, fiber characteristics and cut length are considered when specifying a tension stand.
