Quick-change case taper also creates easy-open feature

Article-Quick-change case taper also creates easy-open feature

With the new Folded-Edge Technology, this tape sealer automatically creates an easy-open feature so cases can be opened without a knife or other potentially dangerous cutting tool. As seen in the video above, which was shot at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2015, both horizontal edges of the tape are folded over to create mini flaps on both sides of the tape along the length of the case. Users can pull up on either of the flaps to rip off the tape and gain access to the inside without any damage to the contents. No special tape is needed and the seal remains secure throughout distribution.

Additionally, with the two-part PrimeLoc tape applicator—which can be retrofit onto existing case sealers—users can quickly and easily swap out tape heads on ShurSeal case sealers when the roll runs down and needs to be replaced. Changeover can be done in 10 seconds or less by simply replacing the tape head on the machine with a second one that has been pre-threaded with a new roll.

In the second part of the 1-minute video, Shurtape’s packaging market manager Bill DeWitt demonstrates how easy it is to swap out the tape heads.
