Roll Type Tension Stand

  • Reduces surface damage and maintenance costs by eliminating drag pads.
  • Powered vertical adjustment design promotes uniform strip tension regardless of strip width or position.
  • Ideal for slitting lines processing pre-painted materials, aluminum, stainless, surface critical and oily materials.
  • Roll style tension stands control the rewinding of strips without damaging coil surfaces and provide superior edge registry.

The brake force required to provide tension is delivered via a hydraulic circuit with each tension roll directly coupled to a hydraulic motor.

Roll Coverings

Polyurethane vs. Non-Woven Synthetic

Polyurethane Rolls are best suited for running clean and dry materials (pre-finished and pre-painted materials).
The polyurethane cover is bonded to a steel core and has 1-2” of roll diameter surface grind down available before the cores need to be recovered.

Non-woven synthetic tension roll covering works best for running oily or dirty metal surfaces. 13” diameter Non-woven tough synthetic discs are mounted on a steel core. The discs are compressed to achieve the desired hardness. These rolls are self healing, provide squeegee action and provide the greatest traction. There is a 2”roll diameter surface available for grind down before recovering is required.
