Measurement of web-to-roller traction, often described as excess traction, requires a pre-determined amount of torque to be applied to the roller until the onset of slip. 

This paper describes an approach which incorporates one or more remote-actuated, machine-mounted prony brakes and a process monitoring (PM) system, which would permit rapid measurement of excess traction on a routinely-scheduled basis while running non-saleable material, enabling traction performance to be trended, and anticipating failures before they occur on saleable product.
