Why use industrial spools?
The above question is often asked, especially by production companies where a continuous process of application is required. So, why not change 100, 50m long rolls to one roll 5000m long? At EKO-TECH, we have an indisputable answer to this question – cross-wound tapes – in industrial spool form. Spooling is a process where several hundred or even thousands of linear metres of technical adhesive tapes can be spliced together and wound on a single core, known as a spool. That is similar to fishing line or thread wound onto a reel.
EKO-TECH as a pioneer in spooling process
We always put the satisfaction of our customers as the priority of our job. Wanting to keep pace with them, we need to constantly develop our products and improve our production line. Our last step on the way to development is a modern production line for spooling of self-adhesive tapes. Thanks to this investment, we will be the first and the only one in Poland to produce tapes on spools – from most of our products – including such brands like tesa and 3M.
Benefits for Your Process
The long lengths available on spools allow your machines to keep running longer and thereby reducing costs associated with downtime, labour and changeovers.
- More material per spool as compared to common rolls
- Fewer changeovers per shift
- More up-time on automated equipment
- Decreases downtime
- Saves warehouse space
- Quicker run-times
