3M™ AccuGlide™ Taping Process
3M™ AccuGlide™ Taping Heads are usually used with 3M-Matic™ Case Sealers but can also be used in converting other case sealers or in custom equipment. A regular slotted container (RSC) is placed on the conveyor and pushed onto the drive belts of a 3M-Matic™ Case Sealer, which convey the box into the 3M™ AccuGlide™ Taping Head. The 3M™ AccuGlide™ Taping Heads applies Scotch® pressure sensitive film box sealing tape at the leading end of the box continuing along the center seam to the trailing end. The taping head also contains a blade which cuts the tape and a back roller that applies it firmly to the back end of the box. Taping heads usually function in pairs to tape two seams of a case. When they tape the top and bottom, taping heads are mounted in an upper and lower configuration. Taping heads can also be mounted for sealing a case lying on its side.
