FMS Tension Control Solutions

FMS Tension Control consists of load cell, telemetry and web guiding solutions. Load cells for accurate tension measuring on web production lines are standard equipment.

Accurate tension control is critical for production processes that require constant material tension such as converting lines, winding/unwinding, slitting, coating, printing in the metal, paper and wire industries. In all of these applications, FMS has a solution.

FMS LMGZ FORCE MEASURING LOAD CELLS - FMS Tension Control

FMS LMGZ Force Measuring Load Cells

FMS LMGZ series tension sensors offer the highest accuracy, reliability, and durability in the industry. Load cells with 20 times overload protection. Accuracy class 0.3%. 50:1 Force measuring range. Nominal forces from 33 to 25000N. Stainless steel construction.

FMS tension measuring amplifiers are available with EtherNet.IP, Profibus, ProfiNet and EtherCAT protocols. EMGZ310.ComAct amplifiers are programmable via Smart Phones or Tablets.

FMS TELEMETRY SYSTEMS – RADIO TRANSMITTED TENSION RTM SIGNAL TRANSMISSION - FMS Tension Control

FMS Telemetry systems – radio transmitted tension (RTM) signal transmission

RTM systems are reliably used to transmit wire tension in applications with rotating machinery commonly found in cable industry. This information can be visualized and used for control purposes.

Features: Reliable data transmission. Maintenance-free.  No slip-rings required. Easy to retrofit. Simple system concept – only 3 components. High productivity and efficiency. Robust and maintenance free. Simple operation.

FMS WEBB GUIDING - FMS Tension Control

FMS Web guiding

FMS web guides detect the position of the material with web guide sensors. These calculate the deviation from the reference position and maintain the material at the required position with a steering frame actuator.

FMS’s wide range of web tension control and web guiding products, offer many possible modular combinations to cover virtually all applications.

FMS IN CABLE AND WIRE INDUSTRIES - FMS Tension Control

FMS Tension Control in cable and wire industries

In the cable and wire continuous production processes, the quality of the finished product is directly dependent on the accurate measurement and control of the material tension.

Typical applications which can benefit greatly from FMS tension measurement and control include: drawing, stranding, bunching, extruding, unwinding, and winding.

FMS IN METALS INDUSTRY - FMS Tension Control

FMS Tension Control in Converting & Paper Industry

When web products are manufactured, processed or finished, two factors are critical for the quality of the finished product: constant tension and the consistent lateral position of the web.

FMS closed loop control systems for web tension and web guiding continually maintain all the relevant parameters to ensure precise compliance with the reference values. At the same time, these values are made available for comprehensive recording for quality assurance.

FMS IN METALS INDUSTRY1 - FMS Tension Control

FMS Tension Control in Metals Industry

Strip tension is a critical factor in ensuring the finished product quality during metal strip processing.

Accurately controlled strip tension results in a better product quality, less waste, improved yield, and faster production capabilities.
