U-CTD Series Creel

Diameter Measuring Tension Creel System features unwinding type electrical tension control, custom designed frame structures ideal for low cost, large scale electrical tension creel systems.

Description
Diameter Measuring Tension Creel System features unwinding type electrical tension control, custom designed frame structures ideal for low cost, large scale electrical tension creel systems.

FEATURES
- Unwinding type electrical tension control
- Torque calculated by diameter measurement
- Tension set by main control panel
- Custom designed frame structures and fiber routing to accommodate customer requirements
- Creel can be segregated into zones, so packages of similar diameters would be distributed into zones accordingly, and have equal tension output
- Ideal for low cost, large scale, electrical tension control creel systems

APPLICATIONS AND FIBER TYPES
- For carbon fiber (PAN and pitch), aramid fibers, glass fibers, and other high performance fibers
- For pre-preg, pultrusion, UD tape process, Lab systems, etc.
