The DEKKA HS box tape head is a specially designed tape head for high speed packaging lines. With the Soft Touch Feature that allows for a lower collapse tension but a greater wipe down force, the DEKKA HS ensures that all boxes are sealed perfectly no matter the speed of the packaging line. Each component of the tape head has been revised to maintain the same robust feel of any Dekka tape head while meeting high speed packaging demands.
The issue with high speed applications is often with proper wiping down of the rear tabs. With the secondary spring from the Soft Touch Feature on the DEKKA HS, the carton tape head is able to quickly rebound and "chase" the case to properly wipe down the rear tab without issue.
Second stage spring system allows for lesser collapse tension with a very rear wipe down to ensure the entire case is perfectly wiped down.
Roller size is reduced to increase the speed of application
Lever length is adapted for faster cutting speeds
Advances the tape along its centerline to avoid edge stress and prevents tape breakage, eliminating delays and lost production
Physically holds tape ends in place unaffected by external drafts or loss of static attraction to the wipe down roller
Main spring tension may be adjusted by selecting one of four preset leverage points. Adjustments are unaffected by vibration and shock
Polyurethane wipe down rollers are molded in one piece for tougher, long-lasting rollers that require less maintenance
