English term or phrase:taper tension
"Taper tension is also available if desired. The TAPER TENSION SETPOINT (available on the PanelView "Setpoint 1" screen) allows you to set a percentage of taper to reduce the tension on the outer layers of the winding roll."
I have no problem with the text but I have difficulty in finding the right term.
Explanation: Tension is mostly translated with this same word. Problem is, taper may mean quite a number of different things. I would suggest you pay a visit to the site I indicate below, and choose the translation according to the kind of machinery your text is talking about.
