TS Load Cells Overview

TS Load Cells provide the most consistent control of tension, no matter how the temperature changes throughout the day. In fact, all MAGPOWR Load Cells are designed with foil strain gauges that provide the lowest temperature drift rating possible (0.02% per º C), which can mean the difference between a profitable web and a floor of wasted material.

These rugged load cells are extremely accurate devices used to measure tension in any unwind, rewind or intermediate web processing application. The unique low profile design minimizes space requirements inside the machine frames, thus maximizing the potential for web width. TS load cells are designed with mechanical overload stops in both force directions to eliminate sensor damage and the need to recalibrate even after extreme overloads, while also offering the flexibility of a variety of mounting styles and coupling options. We offer split coupling, in-roll coupling, and wire pulley models of this load cell for versatility.
