Tension Measurement in Wire and Cable Industry

The tension forces in the wire production and processing range from a few Newton in soft thin copper wires to several Kilo Newton in stranding machinery of wire ropes. The measurement and control of the tension after the extruder is the most important application in cable manufacturing. Because of these very special requirements, the types of sensors are adapted to the respective work processes.

Typical Applications

  • Extruder

  • Stranding machines

  • Wire drawing plants

  • Winders and Rewinders
