As a business that ships products to customers, you are probably interested in increased productivity and security. If so, you'll need the proper carton sealing solution. Water activated tape (WAT) is a strong sealing solution that creates a permanent bond with the corrugated carton, thereby ensuring product security. The Better Packages’ 555e Series dispensers offer features that are ideal for businesses’ with higher volume packing needs.
The Better Packages 555e Series includes the BP555eS and the BP555eSA, along with many variations engineered for international markets. These dispensers are approved by Underwriters Laboratory (UL) for the US market, CE and CSA certified for the European Economic Area and the North American markets respectively. This article discusses the two water activated tape dispensers available in this series, so you can source the product that best meets your business needs.
Better Pack 555eS Water Activated Tape Dispenser
Both dispensers offer important productivity benefits including:
- Fast tape output of 45” per seconds
- Flexible operation with a color-coded keypad that allows tape length to be adjusted in half inch increments.
- 1, 000 foot tape roll capacity means less frequent tape changeovers
- Productivity enhancing accessories
In addition to promoting productivity, these dispensers have features that improve worker safety. A safety interlock switch disables the cutting blade when the front cover is open. They also include a thermal cutoff that prevents the motor from overheating after extensive use.
Better Pack Tape Dispenser 555eSA
The Better Pack 555eSA takes all the features of the 555eS and adds several more. The “A” in represents an Automatic Tape Advance feature, which means that once a piece of tape is removed from the dispenser, another automatically advances. This can be a great productivity enhancer. A microprocessor based control system can be interfaced with PC’s, printers, and shipping systems.
Whichever gummed tape dispenser you choose, the BP555eS or the BP555eSA, you will receive the highest quality reinforced tape dispenser on the market. These machines come with the best warranty in the industry (2 year parts and materials; 6 months labor) and Better Packages’ long history, almost 100 years, of manufacturing water activated packaging tape dispensers.
