Web tension sensor for radial force measurement

The force sensors measure the bearing forces acting on both sides of the rolls, in order to determine the web tension of the foil. The radio force sensors are designed to serve as both bearing housing and web tension sensors. Depending on the application and web geometry different designs of sensors can be selected.
