A Buyer’s Guide for Cohesive Tape Dispensers – Basic and Advanced Features

A Buyer’s Guide for Cohesive Tape Dispensers – Basic and Advanced Features

As consumers, we like having choices. But too many options can be overwhelming. In psychology, this choice overload even has a term – “overchoice.” The paradox is that having too many choices can make the decision harder.

The principle applies to purchasing a cohesive tape dispenser for medical device production. There are a handful of options available with different features and price points. Which one is right for your company? Here at Tapecon, we’ve put together this buyer’s guide to help simplify the selection process.

What is a cohesive tape dispenser?

Cohesive tape is a self-adhering and reusable tape, making it the go-to material for securing medical device tubing. The tape comes in large rolls that must be cut to the appropriate length for your tubing set. That’s where a cohesive tape dispenser comes in. The automatic machine eliminates the time-consuming and error-prone process of manually measuring and cutting tape, ensuring the uniformity of your tubing sets.

The basics – how a cohesive tape dispenser works

If you’re in the market for a cohesive tape dispenser, it’s likely to streamline the in-house process of cutting cohesive tape and assembling medical tubing sets. Here are the basic features and how the dispenser works.

  • Cut length setting – The cut length setting is the core feature of any cohesive tape dispenser. The operator should be able to quickly and precisely select the length of tape to be cut. This setting will remain until it is changed to a different length.
  • Automatic cutting – The automatic cutting feature allows the machine to automatically cut the tape to the preset length. This feature eliminates the need for manual cutting, ensuring accuracy and speed in your production line.
  • Delay timer – The delay ensures a smooth, uninterrupted production process. The feature gives your operators ample time to assemble the tape before the machine proceeds with the next round of dispensing. The delay can be programmed to match the speed of your operators or until the cut piece of tape is removed from the dispenser.
