Flexo Tape Applicator – Workflow
The operator clamps the sleeve between two cones, using compressed air. The universal Tape Applicator can be provided with cones of choice. The operator places the first part of the tape onto the sleeve, presses the rubber roller against the tape and sleeve. The rotation of the sleeve is motorized and operated with a foot pedal. The sturdy frame and strong support rail ensure precisely aligned application of the tape.
