The multi-layered LabelLink® splicing tape offers an elegant solution.
It is applied to the roll core of the label tape by the label manufacturer and joined with the label tape. When the roll ends, a layer with a special adhesive is exposed on the splicing tape at a predetermined breaking point on the back of the spent label tape. Within a matter of seconds, this area is glued to the new label tape creating a strong adhesive connection.
To achieve this, precisely one label is removed and replaced by the adhesive area of the splicing tape. Subsequently, the labelling process can continue at full speed. Using a proficient procedure, the roll change can even be accomplished without any machine downtime whatsoever. No trimming or cutting is needed anywhere anytime, plus the additional costs are recovered quickly.
