Wire speed to Meters per second conversion
Drawings, technical documents and specifications often describe the winding speed, but not the actual wire speed, which is useful information when choosing the correct tensioner option.
Optimising the wire speed can often bring you outside the specification of regulated tension and upgrading the tensioner to one that works is necessary to run at these high speeds.
Our fast and convenient calculator will make the conversion for you.
Use the Yellow cells to input your information, and press the "calculate" button. The Blue cells will then show the conversion.
As an "added extra", we also calculate the speed in various units.
