Pressductor PillowBlock load cells PFTL 101 Horizontal force measurement,
0.5 to 20 kN

ABB PillowBlock horizontal load cells are ideal in applications characterized by low tension levels, heavy rolls and high operating speeds – a scenario often encountered in the paper industry.

Using the horizontal force component to measure web tension can be highly advantageous. The load cell can be sized to measure just the web tension,
excluding the tare weight of the roll, which on a big paper machine can be far greater than the web tension. Measuring in the horizontal place results in optimised measurement accuracy.


Tension Max kN 10 kN
Tension Max N 10000 N
Tension Max lbs. 2250 lbs

If you want to see how your machine or process is operating day in day out from anywhere in the world, where do you start? With the increased risk of hacking of industrial devices becoming ever more prevalent Security Week – New Vulnerabilities Can Allow Hackers to Remotely Crash Siemens PLCs it’s not as simple as just hooking your PLC onto your local network.

An increasing number of companies are turning to remote cloud-based solutions for machine monitoring. Optima are pleased to offer the Cloud-based solution which keeps your automation hardware safely behind a secure firewall. Most of our clients prefer a SIM-card based system. The benefits of this system are that the equipment is always live whenever there is cellular reception available. Our range of antenna options mean that reception is possible even in the most remote locations.

The video below shows a basic demonstration dashboard. If you would like to know more then please get in touch – we like to talk!

This video gives a very brief demonstration on how our Remote Access and Cloud Logging System can help you keep track of how your machine is performing. See when the machine is started, stopped, realise production metric data straight to your mobile, desktop or tablet.

We have been trialling our remote machine data dashboards #iot #industry4. These allow real-time data to be visualised from any PLC anywhere in the world to a PC, tablet or mobile ‘phone anywhere in the world! The system can communicate over 4G, Wi-Fi, or a direct Ethernet connection. From Kazakhstan (yes, we do have two units out there!) to Kendal (we haven’t got one there yet…), we have you covered for a very low monthly cost.
Our remote reporting dashboards which can send #production #reports by #email will shortly be ready for release.
