Tensitron Joins King Tester

Tensitron Joins King Tester

Tensitron is now a part of King Tester Corporation. Both companies have been crafting quality instruments in the USA since the 1930s.

Tensitron is entering a new chapter by combining with King Tester Corporation. This important step will provide Tensitron’s customers with enhanced products and services while continuing to build on Tensitron’s strong reputation for quality and reliability in measurement and testing equipment.

“I am pleased by the new combination with King Tester”, said Doug Hart, former President of Tensitron. “I have had the opportunity to get to know the leadership of King Tester and they share the values we hold to be so important in providing customers with exceptional products made in the USA.” Mr. Hart added, “King will provide Tensitron with the management and technical depth to take Tensitron to the next level.”

“Tensitron is an exciting business with excellent products and we look forward to continuing the commitment to quality and excellence Tensitron has built,” said James Knight, CEO of King Tester. “Tensitron’s focus on quality and creating reliable and repeatable testing equipment made in the USA is a great fit for us.” He went on to add, “the skills and knowledge of the employees of Tensitron will be important for the combined company going forward.”

Both Tensitron and King Tester are proud to have crafted quality instruments in the USA since the 1930s. Tensitron is recognized as the industry leader for designing and manufacturing precision tension measurement systems since 1935. Visit the Tensitron website for details: www.tensitron.comKing Tester, located in Phoenixville, PA, and founded in 1936, is the world leader in Portable Brinell testing equipment and provides a full line of hardness measurement equipment. Learn more at www.kingtester.com.

How does tension affect quality in processes using wires, filaments, or fibers?

Is it difficult to achieve precise tension for your processes using filaments, fibers, or wires? Do you need to save money by reducing waste? Does improper tension affect the quality of the goods you are producing? The use of a tension meter can ensure exact tension measurement and maintain tension control precisely, consistently, and reliably to improve quality and control processes.

Why does tension matter? An important factor affecting the quality of goods or processes in manufacturing and testing environments is tension. Getting the tension right can improve quality and performance in goods produced and save costs by reducing waste. Incorrect tension may result in damaged or inferior products.

How can you test tension? If you’ve had problems keeping yarn tension consistent, producing quality coils, processing optical fibers, extruding electrical wires, monitoring twisting processes, etc.; use a tension meter to provide precise, reliable tension measurement. Tensitron TX-1 Tension Meter What solutions are available? Tensitron offers the TX-1 series digital tension meters to help maintain process and quality control in manufacturing and testing environments. Why choose the TX-1 tension meter? The TX-1 tension meter is a high-technology digital meter for spot testing tension on moving or stationary materials. TX-1 meters precisely display tension in grams, pounds, or Newtons. An extensive standard menu provides selections for copper wires and filaments as well as the option to add up to 10 custom calibrations for your materials. Plus, the TX-1 provides:
  • High precision at low cost
  • Fast, easy operation
  • Rugged, durable design
  • Measurable quality control
  • Ability to store, output, and monitor data
  • Tension range from 0 to 5,000 grams
How do you use the TX-1 tension meter? TX-1 tension meters use a three-roller deflection system to quickly and easily test tension. Simply clamp the instrument onto your material, engage the trigger, and read the measurement. The data averaging function evens out readings in fast-moving applications. A mounting bracket is available for hands-free use. Is it possible to store data for monitoring and quality control? Data logging enables you to store, manipulate, and evaluate the data from your measurements to monitor your processes, document quality, and trigger actions. On what types of materials can the TX-1 check tension? Use TX-1 tension meters to check tension on:
  • Copper wire
  • Magnet wire
  • EDM wire
  • Yarn
  • Thread
  • Fibers
  • Filaments
  • Fiberglass Roving
  • Fiber optic strands
  • Carbon fiber
  • Thin Cables
  • Film
  • Tape
  • Narrow fabrics
  • Flat material
  • And more
