Low-Impact and Lightweight Taping Head
With low-impact motion, our high speed 3M™ AccuGlide™ High Speed Upper/Lower Taping Head applies Scotch® Box Sealing Tape at up to 150 feet per minute, yet exerts minimum force on cases to protect both cartons and contents. Double buffing provides up to 90% tape wet-out for consistent and quality sealing, and this upper and lower taping head also offers low maintenance for improved productivity. Its low profile side plate, open tape path and easy-to-follow instructions allow for fast, easy threading. Made of epoxy powder-coated steel for durability yet lightweight for easy handling, we designed it for use in 3M-Matic™ Adjustable Stainless Steel Case Sealer a20-s or 3M-Matic™ Semi-Automatic Adjustable Case Sealer 700a-s. Its lightweight design and simplicity also make it suitable for mounting into other box conveying systems to tape cartons.
3M™ AccuGlide™ High Speed Upper/Lower Taping Head assists 3M-Matic™ Adjustable Stainless Steel Case Sealer a20-s and 3M-Matic™ Semi-Automatic Adjustable Case Sealer 700a-s in case sealing operations across a wide range of industries, including:
Stable Alignment and Smooth Application
- Food and beverage
- Medical devices
- Manufacturing and distribution centers
3M™ AccuGlide™ High Speed 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 epoxy powder coated 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™ High Speed 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
Regular slotted containers (RSC) are placed on the conveyor and pushed into the drive belts, which convey each 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.
