Murakami Tension Meter is essential equipment if you stretch or retension your screens.  This highly accurate tension meter is capable of recording tensions up to 60 newtons. Optimum tension levels are the key obtaining the maximum performance of the mesh:


  • Improved print quality
  • Consistent registration print after print.
  • Longer screen life by avoiding over tensioned screens.

Measuring Tension: The graphic to the left shows the nine points to measure mesh tension. The tension meter should be placed on a dot area square to the frame. Check tension in both directions of the frame by turning the tension meter 90 degrees on each dot.  Registration and print quality are optimum when all 9 dots have a similar tension level within 1-2 newtons.
