Pinch Roller

The part of a tape transport system that presses the tape up against the capstan so that it can be evenly pulled across the heads and onto the take up reel. Pinch Rollers are generally made of a soft rubber-like material to be most effective. The amount of pressure applied is carefully regulated by the tape machine to provide good, even traction without so much pressure that unnecessary wear and tear occurs.
