PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Adhesive Tape Line

web handling machine

Project summary:

This tape manufacturing firm came to MWES to design and build a web handling system that could produce industrial rolls of adhesive floor tape.

The Challenge

Producing rolls of adhesive tape quickly is a challenging process and is not easily done with manual labor.  With these challenges, this tape manufacturing 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.

The Solution

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

Impact to the Customer

The adhesive tape line that MWES provided our customer afforded them a system that is easy to operate and maintain and has the added benefit of being future-proof.

Midwest Engineered Systems has a wide range of experience in building web handling systems. If you’re looking to improve your web handling throughput, we have the knowledge and experience to make the project a success.
