Main Question or Discussion Point
I am working on a six sigma project to reduce endbreaks in Beaming (textile). I am trying to find a device to measure the force required to rotate a spindle. There are 1000 spindles that hold packages that are transferred to a beam. Each spindle has a wooden brake that applies a force to the spindle to reduce free wheeling with variations in speed. I want to set up all spindles the same. Does anyone know how to measure the torque required to rotate the spindle?
