Our products are used in unwind, rewind, and intermediate applications for any moving continuous material which undergoes an operation such as printing, coating, laminating, treating, metallizing, rewinding, unwinding, slitting, coating or other processes. Tension measurement and control systems for flexible packaging and paper, film and foil converting are our specialty.

In fact, Dover Flexo just sold our 11,000th Tension Roll transducer in 2018. DFE transducers are the industry standard for direct tension sensing and measurement. We are a recognized leader in tension technology.
