Tension Transducers For Web Applications

Tensitron's transducers convert a material's tension into a reliable signal that can be used for remote indication, high speed recording, computer hook-ups, or as input for automatic tension control systems. Customizing strain gaged transducers for specific applications is Tensitron's specialty.  Just provide us with the type of tape, band, or web you're working with, its width and thickness, and we'll be glad to make a recommendation.
