The zcM1000T is designed to feed thin polypropylene and packing tapes. This model accepts tape widths from .28" to 2" (7 to 50.8mm), and cuts tape lengths from .79” to 39” (20 to 999mm).
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. Not all dispensers are equal. The M1000B sets the standard for quality, and others joined in to mimic and copy. How to tell the difference? Check for the Start Hologram Label to ensure you get the REAL M1000T manufactured by ELM.
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. If you are looking to speed up your operation, use a gummed tape dispenser.
