Application in a slitter / rewinder. Do you know the winding tension of all of your single rolls?

The FMS-segFORCE measuring roller now offers producers and machine builders in the converting industry the possibility to precisely measure the web tension of individual slit webs. Especially with very thin and stretchable materials and in compact machines, this places the highest demands on the technology.


Scheme of two measuring rollers in a slitter / rewinder. The offset of the individual segments from one measuring roll to the other is clearly visible. Minimal deviations in tension between the individual web sections quickly become visible.

  • Tension monitoring of each individual web section
  • Highest flexibility in terms of number of segments, widths and position
  • Quick detection of faulty winding or differential friction shafts
  • Clear display of different tension values of the individual webs
  • Tension monitoring of up to 40 individual web sections

Coating. Up to 40 measuring points along one roller

With up to 40 measuring points across the web width, the FMS-segFORCE measuring roller provides a very high resolution of tension values. These are the best prerequisites for processing very sensitive materials or processes with higher requirements (process data acquisition, digital roll protocol, Industry 4.0).


The readings of the individual segments are displayed in a so-called tension profile. This allows qualified statements on process or material quality to be made at a glance. Process- or material-related faults and malfunctions can be easily identified over time. This information can help to better understand the process and optimize the entire operation accordingly.

  • Up to 40 measuring points along one roller
  • Highest sensitivity
  • Tension profile for best understanding of the process
  • Fast detection and elimination of process or material related faults and malfunctions
  • Fast quality assessment of the delivered parent rolls
