About Gummed Paper Tape Dispensers

Our range of gummed paper tape dispensers have been designed to suit a variety of different operations, from small to high volume users. All the machines are compact enough to fit snugly on a worktable or packing bench, and can be easily operated to change the water chamber and alter the length of tape you require.

Gummed paper tape has become more widely used in fulfilment operations due to the environmental and performance benefits it provides. Particularly for operations where hundreds of goods are being packed ready for transit, security of goods is important, and because gummed paper tape bonds to the fibres of a box it is the best tape to use for creating a secure seal.

Gummed paper tape is unique as it must be used with a dispenser to work efficiently, due to it being water-activated. For small operations this can be easily achieved with a simple manually operated dispenser; however more premium versions are better for large operations. Dispensers that offer a ‘predetermined length’ benefit also help to significantly reduce costs in the supply chain, as you are in control of the tape length each time – ensuring there is little to no waste.

Kite’s Range of Gummed Paper Tape Dispensers

Our range of gummed paper tape dispensers includes three different models - two manual models and one electronic model, for those looking for an automated solution.

Specifications vary per machine, see below for more information.

Manual Pull & Tear

This manual gummed paper tape dispenser is the most affordable of the range, and works with all our gummed paper tapes (including both gummed-side in and gummed-side out), up to a maximum width of 80mm. Designed specifically for users with small volumes of product, the benefits of this dispenser includes its compact design and simple operation which uses a simple pull and tear method for single handed use.

The dispenser works by moistening tape over a roller as it is pulled forward, then cutting the moistened tape as it is pulled against a blade. The tape then provides a tamper-evident, highly presentable seal that blends in with the box.

Our EPS/80 pull-and-tear gummed tape dispenser is sold with a 6 month back to base manufacturer warranty*.

Manual Predetermined Length

Our state-of-the-art table top manual dispenser is compact, portable and affordable with stainless steel ‘arching’ cutting blades to give a clean, smooth cut each time. This dispenser has been designed with time-saving in mind, and has an extra-large 1.77 litre drip resistant water chamber to reduce downtime, as well as a 200 metre long roll capacity to reduce number of roll changes. It also has extra-long brushes, moistening the tape quickly and eliminating the need for a water heater, as well as an adjustable roll carriage allowing you to use a variety of different roll thicknesses – from 1 inch wide to 3.5 inches wide.

The dispenser allows you to adjust the length of tape you require up to 42 inches with an easy-to-use slider at the side of the machine. Simply position the slider at the length of tape you want, pull down the lever and release to cut your piece of gummed paper tape.

The TWA-1000M gummed tape dispenser is sold with a 12 month back to base manufacturer warranty to cover the machine, and a 3 month warranty to cover replacement parts*

Electronic

The premium model in our range, this electronic gummed paper tape dispenser is ideal for those looking for an automated solution to gummed paper tape but still want the flexibility of a portable machine. As well as having all the benefits of the manual dispenser such as stainless steel cutters, 200 metre roll capacity, a drip resistant 1.77 litre water chamber and adjustable roll sides to allow for rolls between 1 inch to 3.5 inches wide, the electronic model offers a number of other features.

The key difference is the user-friendly control panel, which allows you to choose from 30 different standard lengths (ranging from 4 inches to 90 inches). You can also program the machine to repeat a set length, ideal when ‘H’ sealing, and there is an infinite option for continuous dispensing. Providing you with consistent lengths of tape each time, this machine helps you to achieve a more efficient operation, and professional-looking goods.

The electronic dispenser needs to be plugged in to a standard 3-pin socket to operate; it has a heated water tank to warm the water, not the tape, for proper activation of adhesion.

Video: How to dispense and use gummed paper tape with our manual dispenser
A demonstration of how to dispense preset lengths of gummed paper tape using our manual dispenser, and how to use it to seal a box.

Once you have set the desired length of tape using the sliders on the right-hand side of the machine, pull down the lever and release to dispense the tape.

To seal a box using gummed paper tape, first apply it to one flap smoothly.

Fold down the flaps and press firmly over the tape to secure the adhesive.

To check the tape is sticky enough touch the adhesive when it comes out of the machine. Don’t worry about the adhesive getting on your hands; it is completely natural and not harmful.

If it isn’t sticky enough it may need running through the dispenser a few times to get the brushes moist enough.

All our gummed paper tape is brown in colour, to match most cardboard boxes and give a professional, uniform looking package each time.

We also sell reinforced tapes for added strength.
