Featuring consistent and quality tape application, this upper and lower taping head also offers low maintenance for improved productivity. We designed the taping head to apply 1.5-2” (36-48mm) or 2-3” (48-72mm) tape widths at a case speed of up to 100 feet per minute. Its open profile side plate, open tape path and easy-to-follow instructions allow for fast, easy threading. Made of painted metal or stainless steel for durability yet lightweight for easy handling, it’s the perfect upper and lower taping head no matter what brand of case sealer you own.

Stable Alignment and Smooth Application
3M™ AccuGlide™ NPH Upper/Lower Taping Head has a tape drum latch that secures rolls for stability and positive tape alignment — just press to release for a roll change. The rugged construction of painted metal or stainless steel provides exceptional durability, and the taping head also has a friction brake drum to maintain proper tape tension and prevent overcoasting for smooth tape application.
Taping Heads Provide Low-Impact Sealing
Designed to apply a "C" clip of Scotch® box sealing tape, the 3M™ AccuGlide™ NPH Upper/Lower Taping Head seals the top or bottom center seam. Designed for low impact and consistent application, 3M™ AccuGlide™ taping heads help protect boxes while providing greater case throughput.
The 3M™ AccuGlide™ Taping Process
A regular slotted container (RSC) is placed on the conveyor and pushed into the drive belts, which convey the box into the taping head. The 3M™ AccuGlide™ Taping Head applies Scotch® pressure sensitive film box sealing tape at the leading end of the box, continuing along the center seam to the trailing end. This is called a "C" clip application. The taping head cuts the tape as it is being applied. After the box is securely sealed, it exits the case sealer.
