The Sheet Tension Meter, Model WC-series, measures the tension of any width material which is long, flat and thin, such as: paper, film, plastic sheets, cloth, web, loom beams, metal foils or winding electrical condensers.

The Sheet Tension Meter, Model WC-series measures tension in flexible sheets or webs which are typically 8" or wider. The instrument is inserted from the edge and measures per inch of web width up to 4" inside your material, so the waviness at the edges is avoided. Hand crafted from solid anodized aluminum, ranges are available to measure tension up to 100 pli or 50 kg/pli.

  • Adaptable for materials as thin as paper to sheets as stiff as foils.
