Fabric tension sensor EM 08

Product description
  • Integrated measurement in spindle-type stretchers
  • Pivot point bearing in the tension carriage can be lubricated
  • Stainless steel version for press section (optional steel version for dryer section)
  • Maximum operational reliability due to mechanical overload protection
  • Different sizes and nominal measuring forces from 1–30 kN ensure a high degree of flexibility
  • Integrated damping element prevents zero point drift due to impacts and machine vibration
  • Includes cable carrier for fabric tension sensor
  • Measuring unit easily accessible and easy to replace
