3M AccuGlide™ Taping Heads are specifically designed to work most effectively with high quality, pressure-sensitive 3M box sealing tapes. You get a strong, secure seal with each application of 3M box sealing tape to ensure that your shipments arrive intact. And with the many 3M box sealing tapes available - from general use to cold temperature tapes to high performance, in colors or custom printed - you're sure to find the tape that meets your needs.

AccuGlide™ Taping Heads from 3M

Choose taping heads designed to meet your application requirements


The taping head you select is determined by several factors: the type of equipment you have, case orientation, the speed of the case in feet per minute and the number of cases per shift, day, week and year. For example, the AccuGlide™ STD, NWT and AccuGlide™ II STD taping heads should be used for line speeds under 80 feet per minute. The AccuGlide™ HST taping head can be used for speeds up to 150 feet per minute and in heavy duty, multi-shift or continuous operations. Side-mounted taping heads and powered drive assemblies are also available. All 3M taping heads apply a "C" clip of pressure-sensitive tape to the center seam of your cases.

This taping head has the same features as the AccuGlide™ STD taping head. It is constructed of stainless steel for applications in humid plant conditions or high and low temperature environments, such as in meat packing plants or other food service industries. It is not recommended for areas where direct high pressure wash down is required.
