(July 09, 2008) Kluge has now added inline tabbing (or wafer sealing) to the mix, as it seamlessly integrates with their modular-constructed automatic folder gluer product line.
The key application for the inline tabbing system from Kluge is for sealing shut products such as mailers, CD/DVD wallets and brochures. As with all finishing products, production speed varies depending on the specific application, however this tabbing system is rated at a speed of up to 30,000 pph and can accommodate labels up to 3" wide.
The tabbing system easily integrates with Kluge folder gluers. The portable unit can be rolled into place directly after the IL-6 or IL-9 units, prior to delivery on the stacker. The versatility of Kluge folder gluers enables the tabbing system to be compatible with both the OmniFold and ComFold automatic folder gluers, and further broadens the applications that can be converted on our machines.
Eliminate the guess work
The tabbing system couldn't be easier to operate with the built in control panel. Simply enter the length of your product, number of tabs, type of tabs and sit back. The tabbing system automatically sets the label pitch, backer sensitivity and label placement.
Kluge introduced the tabbing system at the Drupa tradeshow earlier this year where it tabbed a CD mailer application at 7,000 pph. Click here to watch a video of the system in action as we set up and configured the machine prior to the show.
