  1. Labor cost saving – one person using a semiautomatic machine can process in 5 minutes what someone using a hand taper does in 30 minutes.
  2. Increases productivity
  3. Reliable and simple design means NO downtime
  4. Ready for use, needs only switching on and has minimal training costs

  7. Low power consumption
  8. Must be able to use 3000ft tape rolls, because they cost less per foot than 660ft rolls and cause less waste when roll is nearly empty as replacements are less frequent than 660ft rolls = 45ft x 198ft rolls = 3000ft roll
