Magnetic Tape Applicator
The Magnetic Tape Applicator is a machine designed to apply magnetic tape
from a roll onto a sheet of paper.
The sheets are stacked by the operator and then automatically shingle
fed through where the magnetic tape is then applied to the sheet based on
preset margin positions. After the tape has been applied, the sheet is then
automatically restacked in a paper tray for the operator.
A PLC and touch screen combine to control all aspects of the Magnetic Tape
Applicator. The touch screen has a simple user interface requiring minimal
training. It also allows the operator to control the feed speed and margins
used for applying the tape to the sheet.
The Magnetic Tape Applicator increased production efficiency from 400 sheets per
hour manually to over 1200 sheets per hour automatically.
