Abstract:

Installation of an automatically controlled tension device, electronically coupled to a magnetically operated disk brake system, resulted in accurate measurement and control of the web tension of the corrugating medium on an experimental singlefacer. This method improved accuracy in determining the runnability characteristics of corrugating medium. Evaluation of the system indicated that web tension could be regulated for increments as small as 0.3 pounds per inch of web width.
