MGL Tape Applicator Heads

| March 8, 2017

We have many customers that choose to use our metering units on their office folder gluer or die-cutting machine. Our taping heads are ‘parasitic’ taking power from rollers, or conveyors to which they are mounted onto, thus there are no conflicts, servo requirements, or speed synchronization needed. Simply stated they are a complete system that issues tape on to a product upon demand.
