Banding Tension Device

The CB Tension Device is designed for high-tension tape banding on a lathe. This combination glass-tape and wire tension device provides accurate constant tension regulation up to a maximum of 600 lb (272.2 kg). It can provide tension regulation for up to 800 lb (363.9 kg) for short periods of time or during intermittent operation.


  • Versatile and can be used in the field for service work
  • Can also be permanently mounted on a lathe
  • Calibrated tension device
  • Frication discs have a spring-loaded hub
  • The spring-loaded disc hub will prevent a sudden loss of tension
  • Vertical mounting surface
  • Can be attached to a bed and carriage placed on the floor near the lathe

Optional Extras:

  • Precision Mechanical Gauge - to be used to as a check gauge to calibrate the CB and trace its accuracy to national standards fulfilling ISO requirement.
