Accumulator

  • Framework of sectional steel with vertical guide rails for the dancing roller console.
  • The frame has a safety guard of wire mesh netting.
  • The dancing roller console is suspended by means of four chains for synchronised, vertical movement.
  • Weight balancing by means of servo drives with a feedback system which measures the current carpet tension continuously. Measuring takes place by means of bearings mounted in load cells.
  • A rubber-covered inlet roller, electrically driven, as well as a load cell control the required carpet tension.
  • Safety stop in top position to avoid too high carpet tension.
  • Rubber-covered outlet roller, electrically driven, as well as a load cell to control the required carpet tension.
  • Drop brake to prevent the dancing roller console from falling down in case the accumulator runs out of carpet.
