Automatic machine to apply self-adhesive handles made of a special transparent tape and carton label on bundles of various products.

The adhesive handle-tape is uncoiled by an electronically-driven roller according to the packs flow. Handle-cardboard (or other materials) lamination to the adhesive tape is performed continuously through a mechanic double-cam device (patented).

The handle thus obtained is pasted continuously on the pack in transit through a series of pneumatic arms. The adhesive tape is cut by a cutting group equipped with a cam-driven blade.

On option, and according to the products to work, the machine can be equipped with an arch-handle device.

The handle and cardboard is electronically centred, allowing the machine to catch up on possible mistakes and performing automatically the re-positioning.

The handle-tape is in transparent mono-oriented polypropylene laminated with cardboard (or other materials) that could be blank, coloured or printed with advertising signs and/or images. 

Each head can be equipped with a second reel-holder for 5000-mt-adhesive tape reels.

All the machine’s models can work on laminated adhesive tape.
