SERVO TENSIONING SYSTEM - ST1

Engineering Technology Corporation's ST1 servo tensioners are capable of high speed payouts while maintaining accurate tensioning through high accelerations. Originally designed to make the best use of our unique access to pre-impregnated fiber, or towpreg, ST1 offers incredible tension control for any filament winding application.

Engineering Technology Servo Tensioning Systems include these key features:

  • Servo systems provide accurate control of fiber tension at the high accelerations associated with high winding speed
  • Careful attention to fiber routing minimizes bunching, roping, and rolling of towpreg/prepreg, and creates a well-controlled fiber path, leading to less down time and higher quality parts
  • Quick and easy spool changes with pneumatic spool holders
  • Glass-filled Teflon rollers maintain proper fiber path and allow easy wipe-down
  • Tnesion control in discrete ranges between 0.3-23 lbs at payout speeds up to 150 in/sec
  • Inherent rewind capability
