Roll tensioning

Roll tensioning

The solution

Trouble-free packaging on the pillow bag machine means ensuring that the roll material is continually tensioned and the correct length of film is always maintained. An inclination sensor from Balluff assists in continual tensioning by directly measuring the angle of the dancer arm.


  • No additional target needed: direct inclination measurement
  • Simple installation and startup
  • Greater accuracy than comparable solutions using an inductive sensor
  • No mechanical correction – simple teaching of the zero point on pin 4
