Original Press Release:
Dekka Introduces the Enhanced DEKKA SE Tape Head
Important tape head functions such as tape application, wipe down of trailing tape, and tape cutting have been upgraded for a higher level of precision, speed, and quality.
RICHMOND, British Columbia., September 6, 2018 – Dekka, a product brand of ProMach, introduces the re-engineered DEKKA SE tape head for case formers, case erectors, and case sealers. This enhanced tape head, which features stainless steel construction for long years of service, makes significant contributions to improving end-of-line speed, uptime, and quality sealing.
In terms of cutting, the improved DEKKA SE, the brand’s flagship model, offers a stronger spring and improved design of the cutting lever, bringing faster, stronger and deeper cuts. This enhancement not only results in overall better cutting, the DEKKA SE delivers considerably better results in applications where less tension is required or situations where the machine must account for corrugated variance. Additionally, the mounting of the blade has also been changed to provide a more effective cut, enabling the blade to pierce and cut the tape significantly easier, resulting in more consistent and reliable cuts. In all, cutting on the DEKKA SE has been improved by over 50 percent.
In addition to the changes in cutting, Dekka has improved both the tape applying and wipe down systems for a complete upgrade. The roller arm used for trailing end wipe down has been made incrementally longer to ensure an improved finish over the last generation design. Re-engineering and reinforcing key systems also ensure greater tape application consistency for higher quality sealing and longer service life.
The company also upgraded the overall user experience with new operational labeling and the incorporation of Quick Response Code (QR) bar code tags placed at various locations on the tape head. Scanning a QR tag with an app-enabled mobile device makes cloud-based information on that section of the tape head immediately available for better operation and faster maintenance. Key features that customers have come to expect from the DEKKA SE have been retained such as fast, simple tape threading and small size for ease of serviceability.
