Strip Tension Systems

Alcos has a line that utilises both the Alcos “Combi” Strip Tension System and the Alcos multi-stage “Flexroll” Strip Shape Correction System to enable simultaneous shape correction during slitting.

The Alcos “Combi Strip Tension System” utilises a drag pad for the “oily” materials, and a pair of non-marking covered rolls for the surface critical materials. The roll system is equipped with a convenient “one point lift-off” feature to rapidly interchange the rolls. Various types of rolls can be used including “Scotch-Brite”™ or polyurethane rolls with different hardness and plain or diced surfaces to suit the type of material and customer preference.

This system can be simplified to either a “Drag Pad” or “Poly Roll” unit only.
