Automatic machine to apply self-adhesive handles made of a special transparent tape and carton label directly on the pack.
The pack arriving on the machine’s slat conveyor are slowed down and spaced automatically, through several Intralox conveyors belts. The adhesive handle-tape is uncoiled by an electronically-driven roller according to the product flow. Handle-cardboard (or other materials) lamination to the adhesive tape is performed continuously through a mechanic double-cam device.
The handle thus obtained is pasted continuously on the pack in transit through a series of pneumatic arms with a suitable inclination. The adhesive tape is cut by a cutting group equipped with a cam-driven blade.
The handle and cardboard are electronically centred, allowing the machine to catch up on possible mistakes and performing automatically the re-positioning. The handle-tape is in transparent mono-oriented polypropylene laminated with cardboard (or other materials) that could be blank, coloured or printed with advertising signs and/or images. Each head can be equipped with a second reel-holder for 5000-mt-adhesive tape reels.
All the machine’s models can work on laminated adhesive tape.
