High Efficiency Tape Log Slitter

Multi-Station Four And Eight Shaft BOPP Tape Log Slitter

BOPP tapes are the gems of the packaging industry as they help a lot in sealing cartons and other delicate goods.

The business of tape log slitters is increasing due to the increased demand for cello tape in the market.

We at Jota Machinery make adhesive tapes that are made from the superior quality adhesive that provides high tack and adhesion strength required for sealing cartons to make them pilfer proof.

For slitting BOPP tapes, we use Four and eight shaft tape log slitters. Let’s go through the following article for a better understanding of the BOPP tape log slitter.

What is Adhesive Tape?

Adhesive tapes are the most often used adhesive packaging tapes in the medium to heavy-duty carton sealing, shipping, inventory management, and logistics industries.

This tape is made up of a backing and an adhesive component that is used to bind objects with a surface bond.

A cellulose film usually serves as a backing for adherents manufactured from chemically processed petroleum by-products, which are responsible for the tape’s stickiness.

BOPP tape is also called Cellophane tape. These tapes are largely used in the labelling industry and include basic cellophane tape, masking tape, packaging labels, and, perhaps most famously, transparent tape.

Polypropylene’s unique molecular structure and resin stability provide exceptional mechanical and optical qualities to the tapes.

Polypropylene also has abrasion resistance, chemically reactive substances resistance, burst resistance, and moisture resistance.

The film’s surface is simple to print and coat, making it ideal for custom printed BOPP packing tapes. When needed, the tape can be readily slit.

What are the features of adhesive tape?

Its tough structure and strong tensile strength make it an excellent packaging and labelling material.

Abrasion, dampness, and a variety of chemical solvents are all resistant to it.

It’s simple to coat, print, and even laminate, making it ideal for custom packaging tape production.

The material is also burst-resistant and has a low elongation (about 150 percent on average). It’s also simple to slit.

Because the material is a thermoplastic polymer, it can be used at both high and low temperatures.

Although not all manufacturers publish tensile strength data, industrial packaging tape should be able to withstand longitudinal pressures of roughly 27 pounds per inch and transverse pressures of around 44 pounds per inch.

BOPP tapes, which are made of thermoplastic polymer, can be used in both low and high temperatures.

Hot melt synthetic rubber is a common adhesive because it seals quickly, reliably, and consistently.

These adhesives adhere to the surface quickly and have extra qualities such as UV, shear, and heat resistance. The following are some of the noteworthy features that go well with the tapes:

  • High gloss and excellent clarity.
  • Dimensional stability and flatness are perfect.
  • Anti-wrinkle and anti-shrink.
  • It’s non-toxic and biodegradable.
  • Temperature resistant in both low and high temperatures.
  • UV, heat, and moisture resistance are all features of this product.

What are the types of adhesive tapes?

Depending upon the uses and market demand, there two types of famous adhesive tapes. These are

  • Electrical tape
  • PVC tape

Electrical Tape

Electrical tape is a low-cost general-purpose insulating tape with high moisture, abrasion, and corrosion resistance.

It’s used to insulate electrical lines, as well as other conductors of electricity, and to repair damaged wires.

Vinyl is widely used to make electrical tape because of its elongation qualities. There are numerous other uses, such as fastening wire bundles.

PVC Tape

PVC tape is one type of electrical tape. PVC (polyvinyl chloride) tape is a ‘balanced’ plastic tape that performs similarly to vinyl electrical tape in terms of functionality and durability.

PVC tape, on the other hand, is resistant against the elements and is frequently utilized in outdoor applications.

Difference between PVC and Electrical Tape

The two most common forms of cold-weather tape used for insulating wire are PVC electrical tape and vinyl electrical tape.

The circumstances in which they will be employed may decide which type you use:

Low temperatures

vinyl electrical tape works at temperatures ranging from -10°C to 80°C (15°F-175°F), whereas PVC electrical tape may resist temperatures as low as -45°C (-50°F).

As a result, in cold weather, PVC tape is the ideal alternative for outdoor chores.

Weather resilience

Because of the PVC coating, PVC tape is resistant to extreme weather conditions in addition to withstanding low temperatures.

Metal corrosion and harsh weather will not be a problem for the strong outer layer.

Corrosion Resistance


Electrical tape’s dielectric strength, or electrical strength as an insulator, is a measure of its corrosion resistance.

Vinyl electrical tape comes in a variety of dielectric strengths, making it perfect for insulating high-voltage lines for long periods of time.

PVC electrical tape, on the other hand, can be used in similar situations, but it must have adequate dielectric strength to isolate active wires.

What is BOPP Adhesive Tape Slitter?

Cutting and slitting is the essential parts of tape slitter and Jota provides you this service in the form of one machine.

You don’t need to invest money on different machines for cutting and slitting.  you can use cello tape log slitting machine.

This cello tape slitter has eight shafts that slit the tape log at a point. With the help of eight shaft cello tape log slitter, the massive orders are done in time and no time is wasted.

The cello BOPP tape log slitter has the following parts.

Automatic cutting system

This machine has an automatic cutting system that converts the mass tape rolls into the rolls of desired form.

For instance, you want to make rolls for cello tapes, this machine will help you cut the paper rolls into the desired shape.

Wall thickness

your BOPP cello tape log slitter has wall thickness of 37mm

Work rate

It can work 24 hours a day. This feature is a huge want of the customers as it saves both cost and time.

The cello tape slitting machine can make cello rolls of about 57mm thickness.

However, the wall thickness of the machine is 37mm which is ideal for maintaining the balance. Otherwise, the working of the machine may disrupt and the whole process will be affected.

With the aid of tail cutting and automatic gluing, the process of making cello tapes becomes easier.

CNC System

Moreover, a CNC system monitors the small functions of the machine to let you know of the tiniest possible error.

How Can I check the Quality of a BOPP Tape?

It’s a good idea to use an adhesive tape with a high viscosity.

Of course, this cannot be used as the sole criterion for evaluation because certain low-quality tapes have a higher viscosity after leaving the factory and will not adhere over time.

That won’t work with good tape. The following are the basic methods for judging the tape’s quality:

  • To begin, consider the tape tube’s thickness; a common paper tube is 3mm thick. When measuring the diameter of a paper tube, the standard measurement is 7.8cm.
  • Take a whiff of the tape. The quality is poor if the smell is strong or smelly.
  • Examine the tape’s surface, paying attention to whether both sides of the sticky tape adhere to the hand and whether there is a gap.
  • There is no gap in the high-quality adhesive tape since it does not stick on both sides.
  • Make sure there are no bubbles on the tape’s surface. The high-quality tape is securely rolled with no bubbles. Of course, if the tape is brand new, there may be a few bubbles.
  • Examine the tape’s tightness. The tape is of poor quality if it is extremely easy to break.
  • When utilising good clear film, good sticky tape is difficult to break.
  • The most crucial thing is to examine the tape’s viscosity. There are a variety of inspection procedures available.
  • You can tape the box shut and then walk away quickly. The higher the viscosity, the more the box’s surface peels away.
  • You can also take a long strip of adhesive tape, cut it in half, fold it in the middle, fully fit it, and then abruptly pull it up.
  • The adhesive force is significant if the tape is pulled up continuously or if part of the tape breaks during the drawing up operation.

What raw material is used in the manufacturing of a cello BOPP tape?

Although natural rubber is still used in some pressure sensitive tapes, the bulk are now produced with synthetic materials.

Cello tape’s backing is often made of cellulose acetate, a synthetic derivative of cellulose derived from wood pulp or cotton seeds.

The cellulose is treated chemically with acetic acid and anhydride, and the side of the tape that will not receive an adhesive coating is treated with a release agent to allow it to be wound and unwound without sticking together.

Although the exact composition varies by manufacturer, chromic chloride and poly-stearic carbonate are two typical ingredients.

The adherend side of the backing may be prepared with a solvent or aqueous dispersions such as nitrile rubber or chlorinated rubber before applying the adhesive.

Some manufacturers employ as many as 29 basic components that go through multiple phases of processing to create the finished glue compound.

Acrylic resins, which are petroleum by-products that are broken down into alcohols and acids before being fused into a polymer complex, make up the general adherend.

After that, the substance is combined with mineral spirits or a hydrocarbon solvent to make an aqueous emulsion that is applied to the backing.

How does a Four and Eight Shaft BOPP tape slitter work?

Four shaft Bopp tape slitter is designed for creating ease in the cutting process. It is suitable for mass production and reduces your cost by reducing labor.

Following is the working principle of BOPP Tape Slitter.

  • It starts with slitting the tape roll.
  • The machine includes cutters for slitting the mother paper roll, a web guide for edge tracking, and slitting/cutting.
  • To slit the enormous mother roll, place it on the shaft.
  • A mobile trip for online guide tracking is provided by the portable tape roll stand.
  • We offer a variety of cutting processes for various material rolls. Round disc cutters may cut a variety of materials, including paper rolls, plastic sheet rolls, electric films, and new energy films.
  • The electric tapes or sticky tapes are coated with pressure sensitive acrylic, and the material electric tapes are protected by the centre rewinding process.
  • If you’re looking at BOPP tape slitting machines, you’ll want to know which cutting knife processes are optimal and how to keep jumbo roll tension under control.
  • The electric tapes or sticky tapes are coated with pressure sensitive acrylic, and the material electric tapes are protected by the centre rewinding process.
  • When one of the rollers is in use, the other is used for core loading and roll changing. It boosts productivity.
  • Surface rewinding is the other option. Two bottom rollers, one of which is motorised, and a top pressure lay-up roller.
  • On the bottom, there are two drum rollers, and on the top, there is a pressure roller. It creates a tightly wound loop that can be used to rewind the paper. A steel drum roller and a rubber friction roller are the two types of bottom drum rollers used by our expert.

Please contact our specialised sales team to send multiple jumbo roll samples so that we may conduct a test and learn more about the material’s qualities before recommending slitting machines. Someone else will make a decision if you don’t.
