    • Low profile side plate for faster, easier threading
    • Open tape path for faster, easier threading
    • Light weight for easy handling and removal
    • Easy-to-follow instructional labeling to clearly show tape path
    • Buffing and applying rollers designed for easy removal
    • Available in stainless steel
      For use in high-moisture and corrosive environments
    Tape drum latch
    • Secures roll for stability and positive tape alignment
    • Press to release for easy roll change
    Friction brake drum
    • Maintains proper tape tension and prevents over-coasting for smooth, secure tape application
    Rugged construction
    • Epoxy powder coated steel for durability. Performed to specifications for over 3.5 million cycles in testing.
    As the case moves across the head, the applying roller adheres the tape to the case and continues to roll the tape against the case. Concurrently, the case lifts the cutoff bracket. When the case clears the cutoff bracket, the bracket springs down, allowing the blade to cut the tape. The buffering roller adheres the cut end of the tape to the trailing end of the case. As the case exits the head, the rollers return to the starting position ready for the next case.

    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 ease 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.

    The AccuGlide™ STD taping head has a linear track to guide the applying and buffing roller linkage, insuring smooth and consistent application pressure. Its compact size and simplicity of design make it ideal for replacement of other types of taping, gluing or stapling heads in existing case sealing machines.
