3M™ AccuGlide™ II Upper/Lower Taping Head features low-impact curvilinear motion to seal cases with minimum force. The low profile side plate and open tape path allow fast and easy threading, while the friction brake drum maintains proper tape tension and prevents overcoasting.
Low impact taping helps to protect even lightweight cases and contents
Low-Impact and Lightweight Taping Head
With low-impact curvilinear motion, our 3M™ AccuGlide™ II Upper/Lower Taping Head exerts minimum force on cases to protect both cartons and contents. Featuring consistent and quality tape application, this upper and lower taping head also offers low maintenance for improved productivity. We designed the taping head to apply 1.5" (36mm) tape at a case speed of up to 78 feet per minute, and the adjustable tape drum assembly also allows narrower tapes. 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™ Case Sealer 800asb on narrow profile boxes. Its compact size and simplicity also make it suitable for mounting into other box sealer systems to tape cartons.
3M™ AccuGlide™ II Upper/Lower Taping Head assists 3M-Matic™ Case Sealer 800asb 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™ II 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 tape drum assembly is also adjustable for use with tapes narrower than 1.5" (36mm). 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™ II Upper/Lower Taping Head seals the top or bottom center seam. With a flowing, curvilinear form 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.
