Tabbing System

Total System Solutions

Quality High Speed Sealing System

Tabbing refers to folding over pressure sensitive labels to seal boxes, booklets, direct mailers, and other folded media. This is commonly done to keep folded media from opening, for security, and quality control. Utilizing MFT Automation’s powerful equipment, the Tabbing System features an Automatic Product Loader (APL), ip3 series Friction Feeder, Driven Discharges, and High-Speed Labelers to apply the seals to the product and then fold them over to seal the product shut. The APL maximizes run times between product reloads to keep the system moving. The Friction Feeder and Driven Discharge work in tandem to feed and control the product for the most accurate and precise placement of the seal. MFT Automation’s high-quality labelers maintain high rates of accuracy at high speeds to do hours of work in minutes. Automated tabbing looks more professional and takes a fraction of the time compared to manual hand tabbing. Our automation experts are available to help customers identify the best Total System Solution for the customer’s application or develop similar systems to meet a customer’s specific needs.
