Thread tension regulation


At a feed-in point, a sensor checks the position and diameter of cotton roving for thread tension regulation. Under normal industrial conditions, dust and lint are produced by this application; however, they cannot affect the function of the sensor.


The GS 754B forked sensors are used for this application. They measure the position and diameter of the cotton roving for purposes of quality assurance. While doing so, a check is performed to determine whether the threads have a constant diameter on every spool.
