The TM-21A is an automatic tape banding solution that securely closes wax-coated, glossy, and other hard-to-bond cartons faster and more reliably than rigid strapping material. Full-rotation orbital taping prevents pop-opens, protects your products, and operates as either a standalone or integrated unit.
Would tape be the optimal closing material for your cartons if it would bond reliably?
If you’re using tape, how much money are you losing to pop-opens?
How much stress and expense could be saved if far fewer products were damaged by packaging inconsistencies?
How much would customers and intermediaries appreciate taped rather than strapped cartons?
How much better would your packages look if you could use branded tape?
The Madison TM-21A Tape Bander is a fully-automated tape banding machine. An operator loads or upstream automation loads the carton onto the Entrance Conveyor. The carton then transfers onto the internal conveyors in the bander. A photo eye detects the lead edge of the incoming bundle and an encoder feeds the carton position and length to the PLC. The internal conveyors stop at the appropriate position for tape band placement and the carton is wrapped with one or more revolutions of tape. The conveyors then index to the next banding position and apply additional bands to the stack. Banded cartons are ejected onto the exit conveyor.
