Adhesive Tape Line
Producing rolls of adhesive tape quickly is a challenging process and is not easily done with manual labor. With these challenges, this firm came to MWES to design and build a web handling system that could produce industrial rolls of adhesive floor tape. Utilizing an automated web handling system, allowed the customer to produce large volumes of adhesive tape with 3-inch cores.
MWES provided this firm with a web handling system that would take an extruded web from the extruder, cool the web, treat both sides of the web, add a silicone coating to the top side of the web, and an adhesive coating to the bottom side of the web. It would also laminate a release liner to the bottom side of the web and automatically wind the web onto 3-inch diameter cores. It also has the capacity to house printing equipment as well.
The tape line consists of a number of components that are separated into these sections:
- Chill/rewind/accumulator section
- Liner unwind/laminate section
- Treater/adhesive coating section
- The future printing equipment section
