Many web printers, converters and web process manufacturers today face tough economic fix-or-replace choices daily. Equipment budgets for high-wear items are strapped, and we're all looking for ways to save a few bucks.

Fortunately, as a small American manufacturer, DFE understands your plight. We've made it part of our business to help you get the repair, rework or remanufactured upgrade you need while saving you money and improving your web process.

One of our programs to help reduce your new equipment costs is the Tension Roll transducer refinishing/refurbishing service.

If you are working with an older, used and slightly abused Tension Roll transducer installed on your press or web machinery, DFE offers an alternative to its full-price replacement at a great discount.

The price of refurbishing an existing Tension Roll transducer is about 50% of the price of a new unit with the same specification. Just uninstall your existing TR transducer roll and ship it to us, and we'll quote you the refurbishing cost, then turn around your like-new roll without delay.
