Wire and Cable Manufacturing Tension Control
The manufacture of wire and cable products requires consistent tension to be maintained in order to deliver repeatable quality results, minimize downtime, and boost operator efficiency. FUTEK cable tension transducers (aka wire tension sensor) can be combined with a closed-loop tension controller to provide automatic tension control loop solution.

FUTEK miniature load cells and cable tension sensors (aka wire rope tension load cell) can be customized to a wide range of applications where cable, wire, fiber or rope tension measurement is required.

Benefits of Wire and Cable Tension Control Include:

  • Minimized stretch or breakage during fabrication
  • Optimize fabrication speeds
  • Fewer tangling incidents, minimizing down times
  • Ability to leverage existing machine and operators capabilities to manufacture a wider range of products
  • Consistency quality products

How it Works
  1. While this type of application may often be associated to the textile industry, using force sensors as cable tension transducer (aka wire rope tension load cell) to measure tension with load cell of a wire tension applications are very common in the test and measurement world.

  2. Utilizing FUTEK's LSB200 Jr. Miniature S-Beam Load Cell provides operators with a space-conscious solution that is equipped with both overload protection and many accessory options.

  3. To effectively measure the tension/compression per fiber, users utilized a custom pulley mounted to the LSB200 wire tension sensor. The miniature size of this model makes the integration into various machines simpler. (Note that this model's slender flexure size allows an arrays of LSB200s to be placed closely together.)

  4. As the operator performs the test, results can then be streamed via FUTEK's USB Solution to a PC.

  5. This PC can monitor all incoming data through FUTEK’s SENSIT Test and Measurement Software, which allows the operator the ability to monitor the force, view live graphs, and log data for analysis.While this type of application may often be associated to the textile industry, wire tension applications are very common in the test and measurement world.
