Based on basic designs tried and tested in practice Dr. Brandt GmbH develops optimized system solutions for the safe measurement of strip and web tension in your production lines and equipment.
Continuous paper production processes require multipoint measurements of the web tension
to enable the various individual
drives to be controlled in a papermaking machine.
Testing of Ropes
Ropes in safety-critical areas (such as, for example, track cables and traction ropes of cable cars and lifts, anchoring ropes for excavators, hangars, cranes, masts, bridge catenary cables or hoisting ropes) as well as wire rope reinforced.
Weighing technology and special measuring or weighing projects have been one of the core areas of Dr. Brandt GmbH since the earliest beginnings.
The Art of Measuring
in the Metal Industry
Dr. Brandt GmbH has always been a forerunner in the development of innovative force measuring systems. As the inventor of the load cell, we have been contin-
uously pioneering this field ever since our company was founded. Based on the sensors developed by us, we offer numerous measuring systems.
We know: Our measurement technology forms the basis for safe and trouble-free process control. Consequently, we are fully aware of our professional responsibility in the development and production of precise measuring systems which convince by their long service life.
The portfolio of Dr. Brandt GmbH comprises numerous products with the focus laid on the accurate measurement of tensile force, compression force, shear force and torque in a wide variety of processes. For this purpose, innovative force and pressure sensors are used as transducers and load cells. Via real-time control, the data thus obtained are directly employed for process improvement. Our measuring systems can also be retrofitted in existing plants and equipment.
The Art of Measuring
in the Papermaking Industry
In the paper and sheet/film manufacturing industry, continuous monitoring of production processes by means of precise measuring technology is decisive for product quality. Dr. Brandt GmbH specializes in the manufacture of tailor-made systems for this industrial segment. For this purpose, numerous different load cells and load measuring pins are available for construction.
The wide range of load cells, which can measure either vertically or horizontally to the mounting level, enables suitable systems to be individually developed. Our versatile load cells are particularly useful for measuring the tension of paper webs.
As an alternative to the manufacture of customized measuring technology, our product range also offers a selection of standardized components with adapter plates. These adaptable transducers can be used on optional pillow blocks or are suitably employed for a variety of applications. Both standardized and tailored systems are modern system solutions for monitoring web tension in the production of film or paper.
