Vivid Unveils New VeloTaper Taping System

The VeloBlade Volta range of digital die-cutting systems can now be equipped with an innovative new automatic tape applicator – the VeloTaper!

The Pinnacle InterTech award-winning VeloTaper is a fully automated flatbed taping system that applies double-sided tape accurately onto a variety of media and/or substrates automatically in the designated spots. The result is a finished cut and creased product immediately ready for assembling.

A number of scenarios require double-sided tape to be laid onto sheet or roll materials to allow for later assembly or fixing. Traditionally this would be a manual and time-consuming task, and one that is subject to the inconsistencies typical of manual positioning.

The VeloTaper automated flatbed taping system makes light work of this task and taping can be performed at the same time as other processes such as cutting and creasing, for ready-to-assemble displays for example.

The tape applicator is capable of automatically cutting, creasing and placing a range of double-sided tapes up to 22mm in width precisely along the X and Y axis all in one pass, freeing up your operator to complete other work.

The VeloTaper system has won the prestigious 2022 Pinnacle InterTech Award for best technology and is a patented innovation, designed and developed in-house by Vivid. The VeloTaper is a solution that can save a huge amount of time over manual hand application and costs. By using the fully automatic tape applicator, you can reduce operator dependency, eliminate tape waste and increase productivity.
