Web tension control specialist Montalvo Corp. (Gorham, ME, US) is demonstrating single-web and multi-tow tension control solutions designed for composite manufacturing processes including prepreg, pultrusion, filament winding, converting and more. These products include a redesigned Automated Tension Standing (ATS), Load Cells, Tension Controllers, Tension Indicators, Sensors, and more. Designed for use in multi-tow applications the ATS is a drop-in system for existing and new applications, providing a new tensioning zone for every tow of material prior to processing. The newly redesigned ATS now provides easier setup and threading to help maximize production uptime. The system generates uniform tension on each tow automatically and continuously, and it is customizable to meet the needs of a variety of applications. For single-web applications, and/or after individual tows have formed a single web, Montalvo is highlighting its single-web tension control components used in prepreg, pultrusion, hand-lay, laminating and converting applications. These products include load cells, tension controllers, tension indicators, sensors, safety chucks and more. Booth G65.
