Introducing an all new Robotic Taping System

RoboTape is a patent-pending automatic tape system designed to handle repetitive and demanding tape applications.

Our talented research and development team have invested over 15,000 hours to develop a comprehensive system for feeding and installing adhesive-backed foams, felts and attachment tapes.

Seamless integration into existing production systems or new cell layouts is promoted by our proprietary remote feeding system. This new technology allows bulk spools of material to be positioned outside of the safe zone, opening up endless possibilities for cell design. In addition to this, the bulk spool of material can be replaced while the machine is mid-production to fulfill continuous, uninterrupted production goals.

A slim and versatile tape apply head can tackle applications with complex geometry and contours on a wide variety of parts. Automotive, architectural, industrial, medical and consumer goods are just some of the industries that can benefit from this specialized system.

Before RoboTape, tape application was a predominantly manual process that was strenuous, inconsistent and repetitive. We solve all these issues with a thoughtfully designed product capable of so much more.

The complete RoboTape system consists of two main components. A bulk spool feeding system known as a ‘payout’ and a tape apply head.

The payout is a sleek and compact machine with an integrated control system, HMI and pneumatics. In its full form, it stands only 900mm wide x 575mm deep and 1,300mm high. It is capable of housing and feeding spools of bulk material in excess of 1,800m, which greatly decreases the need for operator interaction.

The tape apply head can be fixed or robotically mounted to suit the largest variety of applications. Our team can work with you to tailor a solution just right for your needs, including any of your other automation needs.
