When it comes to pressure sensitive adhesive tapes most of the time you think of rolls of tape, after all, everyone has used a roll of tape. When it comes to actually applying tape, however, most people use it in strips or in pieces, either to help mask a surface, close a box, or hold something in place. Although roll goods are certainly the easiest and most convenient way to buy and sell tape, when it comes to actually using the product, roll goods aren’t always the easiest or most efficient way to go. That’s where the specialty die-cutting services at Pro Tapes® comes into play.

ProTapes has equipment to do many types of slitting. When possible wide web slitting is preferred by most customers because of the cost benefits associated with its high volume output. But when is it better to chose a lathe slitter to convert your materials? Below are 5 scenarios where lathe slitting is your best option.
- 1. Small runs
- When converting from jumbo rolls, the efficiency gained for larger jobs on a wide web slitter is great. However, often times, order minimums required for wide web slitting can far exceed the customer’s requirements, and that’s one situation lathe slitting is a great option.

- Although a rotary die tool slitting can also be used for widths below 12mm, it requires an upfront investment Continue reading
With the variety of converting machine types available today it is difficult to determine which is best. For many small converters large automated wide web machines are just financially out of reach. Not enough volume of any one item to justify a large cap expenditure puts most companies in a position where they would be working in the most inefficient way. As a result, the actual volume by item ends up being the deciding factor for most converters when deciding how to allocate funds for new equipment. ProTapes, unlike most converters, has every type and size machine to produce any size order which is rarely seen at the manufactures level.
- 1. Cost
- The yield per spin cycle when cutting from a wide web more than QUADRUPLES any narrow web slitter’s production Continue reading
