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.

Our 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 include 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-&-tear gummed tape dispenser is sold with a 6 month back to base manufacturer warranty*.

Manual machine

Our table top manual dispenser is compact, portable, affordable and easy to use. This dispenser has been designed with time in mind; it has a large water tank and fill chamber to make sure water is always topped up. It also has long and effective brushes, moistening the tape quickly and eliminating the need for a water heater, as well as an adjustable weight that allows you to use a variety of different roll thicknesses. This machine is ideal for use with our reinforced gummed paper tape.

This dispenser can be used as required, for any tape length or for specific lengths, with its easy to read measurements placed on the side of the machine. Simply pull the lever to what length you would like your tape, and release to cut the piece of gummed paper tape. Place on the box as soon as possible to ensure a strong and secure stick.

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 programme 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 more efficient operation and professional-looking goods.

The electronic dispenser needs to be plugged into 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.

The TWA-1000E gummed tape dispenser is sold with a 12 month back to base manufacturer warranty*.

Please note: Only available for standard delivery (2-4 working days).

Video: How to use our manual gummed tape dispenser
Demonstrating how to use our manual machine

Our manual gummed tape machine is perfect for those on a budget. Simply fill the chamber full of water by firstly pouring it into the tank. If this is the first time you are using the machine, open the lid and slot the loose part under the roller. Adjust two metal panels to fit different tape widths; note that this machine is ideal with our reinforced gummed paper tape. Then, slot the tape under the part that was just fitted and close the lid. If the tape isn't quite coming out right, you can adjust the weight on the machine until it dispenses perfect and smooth water coverage. If you have certain size boxes, and a certain tape length in mind, use the measurements at the side of the machine to produce the desired tape length. Otherwise, simply pull the lever to dispense any tape length. Apply to box as soon as possible to ensure a secure and strong stick.
