Dancer Solution

Inductive Positioning System Provides Continuous Noncontact Measurement The electrode and separator films are wound on rollers and are assembled via calendering during the production of battery cells. This is a high-speed and intermittent operation that requires precise interaction between each component. This process requires the tension of the film web to be as constant as possible. A guide roller with a spring mechanism, known as a dancer, compensates for fluctuations and helps to maintain the web tension. The dancer's movement should be as smooth as possible around a central position. Continuous measurement of the dancer position provides important data about the process and the potential
need for corrections or maintenance.
