Composites web tension control specialist Montalvo Corp. (Gorham, ME, US) will demonstrate its latest multi-tow tension control solution, the Automated Tension Stand (ATS), along with its single web tension control components. 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. Montalvo says uniform and precise tension is created on each tow automatically and continuously throughout processing maximizing productivity and end product quality. In addition to the ATS, Montalvo will highlight its single web tension control components used in hand-lay, laminating and converting applications, such as load cells, tension controllers, sensors, safety chucks, brakes and clutches.

Montalvo will deliver a presentation titled, “Achieving Automated Tension Control for Multi-Tow and Single Web Composites Manufacturing”. This presentation will provide real world examples of tension control applications and how components integrate into converting, pultrusion, hand lay-up, filament winding, and prepreg processes.
