The DM&E 310 Series Brake Controlled Tension Stand utilizes “state of the art” web tensioning technology developed for the paper industry. DM&E Corporation first applied this technology to fiber tensioning in the early 1990’s. Since that time we have been refining this process, resulting in superior tow tension control.
The 310 Series Brake Controlled Tension Stand will add controlled tension from 50-lbs. (222N) to 250-lbs. (1,112N) to a moving tow band. The 310 Brake Controlled Tension Stand utilizes an omega wrap nip roll, dual driven rolls and an integrated dancer. The dancer is coupled to solid-state electronics controlling a pneumatically actuated tension brake. Tension is maintained even when the line is stopped. The 310 Tension Stand is tested and ready for use upon shipment.
There is an optional 500-lbs (2,220N) system for special applications. Stand-alone versions can be supplied requiring only AC voltage and compressed air supply.
