The Low Profile Taper
A machine built for the sole purpose of taping low-profile, wide-format boxes.
The EdgeTec Low Profile Taper is an inline taper designed for taping one-piece folder boxes that are 4 inches in height or less with a maximum box width of 56 inches.
The machine runs a full center seam of tape with a “c-clip” on both ends. Additional tape heads can be added to the machine to apply leading and trailing “c-clips” or “l-clips” of tape to edge seams. Clip placement is adjustable based on box size and customer needs.
The EdgeTec Low Profile Taper can run virtually all pressure sensitive packaging tape styles, widths, and rolls.

Low Profile Taper Taping Configurations
In general, when boxes are under 2.5″ in height, a C-clip of tape is applied.
When boxes are over 2.5″ in height, a L-clip of tape is applied.
Some modifications can be made depending on box type and application.
