Feed Rolls

  • The letoff and rewind feed rolls are the first and last tension control points for the fabric handling. These small tension stands are critical to the overall tension control model for high quality cord production
  • The letoff feed roll pulls the fabric from the letoff station at controlled low tension and is designed for 25% overspeed to fill the accumulator
  • The winder feed roll is the last tension control point before the winder and is designed for 25% overspeed to empty the rewind accumulator and feed the material at the proper tension to the surface winder
  • Both stations utilize precision load cells for control and large diameter rollers to isolate the tension
