Stable Alignment and Smooth Application
3M™ AccuGlide™ NPH Upper/Lower Taping Head has a tape drum latch that secures rolls for stability and positive tape alignment — just press to release for a roll change. The rugged construction of painted metal or stainless steel provides exceptional durability, and the taping head also has a friction brake drum to maintain proper tape tension and prevent overcoasting for smooth tape application.

Taping Heads Provide Low-Impact sealing
Designed to apply a "C" clip of Scotch® box sealing tape, the 3M™ AccuGlide™ NPH Upper/Lower Taping Head seals the top or bottom center seam. Designed for low impact and consistent application, 3M™ AccuGlide™ taping heads help protect boxes while providing greater case throughput.

The 3M™ AccuGlide™ Taping Process
A regular slotted container (RSC) is placed on the conveyor and pushed into the drive belts, which convey the box into the taping head. The 3M™ AccuGlide™ Taping Head applies Scotch® pressure sensitive film box sealing tape at the leading end of the box, continuing along the center seam to the trailing end. This is called a "C" clip application. The taping head cuts the tape as it is being applied. After the box is securely sealed, it exits the case sealer.
