Clip applicator

Article-Clip applicator

The semi-automatic, 3M-Matic™ S-867 L-clip tape applicator applies high-performance Scotch™ tapes at speeds of up to 50 L-clips/min. Capable of handling 9- to 36-mm tapes, the system can handle filament tapes, high-performance box-sealing tapes and strapping tapes. The unit's design eliminates the lubricator, simplifying operation and reducing maintenance, the co. says. A redesigned control panel deters operator tampering, making operation more consistent. Controlled tape-leg-length prevents waste, and durable buffing rollers help ensure secure tape closures. Applications include full-overlap, full-telescope, five-panel shipping containers and custom die-cut cases.3M
