Dutch term or phrase: baanspanning
This phrase stems from the same semi-technical document (for a company specialising in machines for the printing industry - see previous query).

The complete sentence is as follows:

'[...] is enthousiast over de nieuwe baanspanningsregeling die hij samen met zijn team heeft ontworpen. Voor alle duidelijkheid legt hij eerst het huidige systeem uit: ‘Bij de huidige persen werken we om in register te kunnen drukken, met een systeem waarbij de infeed iets langzamer loopt dan de rest van de machine. Bij dit systeem wordt het percentage ‘rek’ van tevoren ingesteld. De hoogte van de baanspanning die daardoor ontstaat, is afhankelijk van de eigenschappen van het bedrukte materiaal.’

Again, I have looked in several dictionaries (including Kluwer) and searched the web, but am none the wiser as to the proper translation of this term. Any suggestions are therefore more than welcome!

KudoZ points will be awarded asap.

Thanks,

paper feed tensioning / web tensioning
Explanation:
That's the phrase I would use.
Larger printing machines, for instance Roland, print from paper rolls, where the proper tensioning of the paper is vital, to prevent stretch, but also to prevent the paper from tearing, and above all, to prevent distortion of the printed image. This is usually achieved with pressure rolls.

The paper from a roll is also frequently referred to as "reel paper" or "web paper"
