Transducer for Tension Force Measuring of Strip Materials

Emad Said Addasi


In winding-up motor drive systems, such as that used in textile industry, it is very important to get a constant tension force for the winding strip material (thread) and to reduce its oscillations. This study recommends a transducer with a special design to be used in the mentioned motor drive systems. By using a piston damper, spring, levers, slider and other simple components the suggested sensor (transducer) can be used to control the motor speed for getting the required thread tension force. Also the suggested transducer avoids the disadvantage of other used conventional transducer: the parasitic (detrimental) oscillations of the thread tension force, which affect the quality of the produced strip material.
