DFE Splicer Circuitry Improves Hi-Cone Productivity
Manufacturing beverage carriers from 13 mil LDPE presents it own set of converting challenges, but also some of the same concerns as any other web-handling operation - among them tension control. [Retrofit article from Converting Magazine.]
Controlling Polypropylene Stretch in Paperboard Laminating
Tension control has a critical effect on processes with extensible films. A Michigan manufacturer of recycled paperboard cartons had problems in laminating the PP substrate web over the paperboard web because of inconsistent stretching of the film layer.
Controlling Tension Over a Wide Tension Range
There are several approaches to controlling a wide range of tensions on a converting machine or press that runs multiple substrate types or thicknesses. One solution is the use of multiple transducers in a single location.
