Vivid unveils new VeloTaper taping system

The VeloBlade range of digital die-cutting systems can now be equipped with an innovative new automatic tape applicator – the VeloTaper!

The VeloTaper is a fully automated flatbed taping system that applies double-sided tape accurately onto a variety of media and or substrates automatically in the designated spots. This means the finished cut and creased product is immediately ready for assembling.

Sales and product manager, Lewis Evans, said, “A few scenarios require double-sided tape to be laid onto sheet or roll materials to allow for later assembly or fixing. Traditionally this would be a manual and time-consuming task, and one that is subject to the inconsistencies typical of manual positioning.

“The VeloTaper automated flatbed taping system makes light work of this task and taping can be performed at the same time as other processes such as cutting and creasing, for ready-to-assemble displays for example.”

Evans added, “The tape applicator is capable of automatically cutting, creasing and placing a range of double-sided tapes up to 22mm in width precisely along the X and Y axis all in one pass. Freeing up your operator to complete other work.”

The VeloTaper is an optional extra that can be purchased separately to the Veloblade Volta+ models and is fully integrated with the latest versions of Vivid’s Zip Core software. Existing Veloblade users will require a Vivid engineer to attend to install the tape applicator onto their system. Customers should contact Vivid for pricing details.

Vivid will be exhibiting at The Print Show on the 20-22 September on Stand C05, where they will be demonstrating the new VeloTaper automated flatbed taping system alongside its other products and services.
