Need to dispense up to 2" pressure sensitive tape automatically?
Not all dispensers are equal. The M1000 set the standard for quality and others joined in to mimic and copy. How to tell the difference? Check for the Start Hologram Label to insure you get the REAL M1000 manufactured by ELM.
Over the years Start International has taken the standard dispenser and modified it to handle an assortment of different types of pressure sensitive tapes and materials. The best way to determine the best unit is to fill out a material evaluation sheet and forward a sample roll of material to us for testing.
Note: We recommend removing the tape from the dispenser at the end of every shift. Some adhesives become more aggressive the longer they are stuck on the rollers. This will help minimize tape jams and keep your dispenser cleaner.
Looking for a faster way to use PVC tapes to seal cartons? We recommend either using tape guns or automatic case sealers. If you try to use a counter top automatic dispenser like the M1000 for taping boxes, the tape is too difficult to handle and sticks to everything once dispensed. On standard type RSC cartons you need 3 hands. One to hold the flaps down, 2 to manipulate the tape to position it on the flaps. If you are looking to speed up your operation, use a gummed tape dispenser.
