Wire Tension Meters Ensure Superior Part Accuracy

The Mitsubishi Consumable Products Group (CPG) (Wood Dale, IL) introduces wire tension meters, the easiest way to ensure superior part straightness, accuracy and surface finish before machining even begins.

The Mitsubishi Consumable Products Group (CPG) (Wood Dale, IL) introduces wire tension meters, the easiest way to ensure superior part straightness, accuracy and surface finish before machining even begins. Incorrect wire tension can lead to part inaccuracies and problems such as clogged wire guides, grooves in pulley system, and more. Wire tension meters are the quickest and simplest way to confirm the wire tension on an EDM is exact, preserving part integrity. CPG offers both digital and analog tension meters to prevent poor tolerance on any budget. The manual or analog meter, checks tensions ranging from 5 to 5000 grams. Its internal magnetic dampening makes for balanced movement, delivering accurate readings at any position. Digital tension meters from CPG can be read in grams, newtons or pounds. Its back-lit graphic display indicates tension value, battery level and material being tested. For battery preservation, the unit automatically powers off after ten minutes on non-use. Optional mounting brackets make hands-free applications possible.
