Preston Technical has proved its reputation for innovation by producing a way to manufacture specific die-cut lengths of double coated foam tapes in a unique roll form and which also incorporates a new method of enabling the foam tape release liner to be removed as an operator assembly aid. Major cost savings can then be achieved in the manufacturing process.
TabTech® meets the customer needs for a way to produce narrow dimension tape parts – especially those required in long lengths – accurately and within an easy peel liner tab incorporated into the tape part. For example, the automotive component manufacturing industry is increasingly using double sided tapes which provide both security of fixing and helping to reduce weight.
The challenge is that thinner widths of tape are now required in trim part design. Cutting and dispensing such dimensions of tape is a major process headache for component manufacturers. The type of application would include, for example, fixing exterior and interior trim parts to the vehicle.
