The Low Profile Taper
The EdgeTec Low Profile Taper is an inline taper designed for taping very low and or very wide one-piece folder boxes.
The machine is available in three sizes and covers a wide range of box dimensions. The Low Profile Taper seals the box’s center seam with C-clips 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 machine can run virtually all pressure sensitive packaging tape styles and rolls. Accurate and secure tape application means no tape waste! Additionally, a bypass mode keeps production lines moving when tape isn’t needed.
