How to Series: Setting Film Tension

Jesse Swisher, an expert Matrix Service Technician, delves into the art of setting film tension in this informative video tutorial. Jesse shares his tried-and-tested method for optimizing film tension on packaging machines, starting with maximizing tension by positioning weights and springs to their outermost limits.

By providing ample back pull to keep the film straight and adjusting stopper screws to allow room for the dancer bar's movement, Jesse ensures that the film moves smoothly and accurately during packaging. His approach, honed through years of experience, not only resolves common issues with film tracking but also lays the foundation for efficient and trouble-free operation of packaging machines.
