Exact setting of strip tension – at any position in the processing line

In production and processing lines for strip made of steel or NF metals, Umlauf Bridles build up strip back-tension exactly where and as high as needed. Also thick strips or strips made of high-strength materials can be handled with ease.

Umlauf Bridles are successfully in operation in numerous strip processing applications, such as in pickling, annealing, rolling, side trimming, galvanizing and leveling as well as in slitting and cut-to-length lines.

By building up or reducing back-tension in a controlled way and at virtually any position of strip processing lines, Umlauf Bridles help to improve in many ways the economic efficiency of operations in steel and non-ferrous metals strip production.

The result: More sellable meters per coil!
