How It Works For You

The MGL Power Tape Unwind unit is made to automatically unwind large spooled rolls of pressure sensitive tape. It is most commonly used to unwind tear tape (a.k.a. tear strip or tear-off ribbon) that can exceed 15,000 yards or meters in length.

This unit will automatically start unwinding tape as the tape itself is pulled, causing the tape tension arm to move from its resting or stop position. When the tension on the tape itself is released, the tension arm moves back to its resting position and the unwind motor stops.

Tear tape serves as an easy opening device for consumer packaging. This tensilized polypropylene tape has a pressure sensitive adhesive that is usually applied to the surface of packaging made of paper, paperboard, corrugated cardboard, or plastic.
