ABSTRACT
An interview with Lesli Riehemann, the president of Mach III Clutch Inc., a manufacturer of actuated friction clutches, is presented. When asked about problems associated with improper tension control, she refers to dished finished rolls, poor printing registration, and web breaks. She mentions that they are making efforts to install an automatic system that electronically adjusts air pressure to the clutch or brake. She talks about their SensiFlex line of tension control clutches and brakes.
