Tension Controllers & Torque Controllers

A closed-loop tension controller receives feedback from load cells measuring exact tension and adjusts torque and speed to maintain a pre-selected tension setpoint. An open-loop torque controller measures roll diameter with a distance sensor and adjusts torque output proportionately to maintain an approximate tension level.


The EasyWeb™ is an open-loop torque controller designed to maintain constant web tension and provide taper tension on center driven rewind or unwind applications.


The full-featured SteadyWeb 6 closed-loop digital tension controller combines an easy-to-use color touchscreen interface with an impressive list of control options and capabilities.

All DFE tension controllers and torque controllers are manufactured in the USA and backed by an industry-leading 5 year warranty.
