The zcM1000D pressure sensitive tape dispenser has a custom circuit board that dispenses a minimum length of .2" (5mm). This model accepts tape widths .28” to 2” (7 to 51mm), and dispenses lengths up to 39” (999mm). The photo-sensor is unable to detect 5mm pieces. Tweezers are suggested for tape removal.
Not all dispensers are equal. The M1000D 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 M1000D 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.
