Web tension control specialist Montalvo (Gorham, ME, US) will showcase its new Modular Automated Tensioner (MAT) and Automated Tensioning Stand (ATS) units. Designed for applications running multiple strands (via creels, rovings, etc.) of composite materials, the MAT and ATS systems are drop-in units for existing and new applications that create a high-performance and reportedly cost-effective tension zone prior to the material being processed. This new tension zone allows every strand of composites material to be precisely tensioned, automatically and continuously, throughout a production run, ensuring reduced waste and higher quality end product. Applications include hand layup, filament winding, pultrusion and prepreg processes.
