This robust injector-style tension unit, is designed for 30 second roll changeover and includes a provision for the future addition of a multiple indexing station and up to three additional sets of tension rolls for use with multiple types of materials.
To reduce quality issues associated with too much or too little tension, Chicago Slitter utilizes a closed loop hydrostatic braking system for back tension. In addition to maintaining constant, reliable strip tension on the wind, this solution eliminates the intensive maintenance required with a traditional water-cooled braking system.
Tension rolls are driven to accurately advance the slit strip from the tension unit to the recoiler.
Powered Vertical Adjustment
The exclusive mechanical screw jack solution, universal to Chicago Slitter tension units and slitter heads, ensure controlled nip pressure across the slit strips regardless of width or position.
