The main advantage of these manual dispensers for adhesive tape lies in how practical and easy they are to handle. The D1 and D2 manual dispensers weigh only between 0.261 kg and 0.555 kg, making them easily transportable. In addition to their ergonomic design and small size, these tape dispensers can be used with one hand.
This makes the use of the D1 and D2 dispensers extremely easy and intuitive. In order to use this device, the user simply needs to hold the device in one hand while placing the end of the rubber drive roller onto the surface to be taped. With a single hand movement, the adhesive tape will be dispensed and cut using the device’s serrated blade. This adhesive tape dispensing device is extremely practical and will meet the requirements of any standard use of adhesive tape.
The second feature of this manual dispenser is its coating. The D1 handheld dispenser is entirely covered with a rigid metal frame that has been designed for the use in industrial environments. Working in a factory or warehouse usually involves the intensive use of many tools. These devices must be able to withstand the various stresses associated with the industrial environment and heavy use. The D1 and D2 manual dispensers are made from rigid steel, are durable and will withstand the test of time and wear. In addition, this coating not only protects the rolls of adhesives from external factors, but it also keeps the user safe, especially when handling dangerous adhesives such as aluminium.
In order to obtain fast and efficient cutting, special attention was paid to the blade design of the D1 and D2 manual dispensers. Since these dispensers can be handled with one hand, it was necessary to build a high-performance cutting system so that cutting can be carried out smoothly and effortlessly. Thus, the blade of these manual dispensers has been manufactured specifically to cut adhesives supported by the D1 and D2 dispensers. This blade has many notches, each of which is particularly resistant, sharp and small. Each notch is 1.5 mm long. These durable serrated blades are manufactured from high-strength carbon steel and guarantee clean and immediate cuts.
It is also important to note that the D1 and D2 hand dispensers have an adjustable manual brake system. This feature has been designed to prevent the adhesive tape from being dispensed too rapidly and without control. This trigger-style brake system is located in the circular handle of the device. Exerting slight pressure on this brake system allows for the weight of the roll to be adjusted and the output speed to be measured and controlled.
The D1 and D2 manual dispensers are available in several sizes depending on the sizes of the adhesive rolls to be used. The size of the mandrel is the same for all D1 and D2 dispensers and is 76 mm in diameter. Each model has been specifically designed to accommodate adhesive rolls of different widths and external diameters. Thus, the D1 protected manual tape dispenser can accommodate rolls with the following widths: 15 mm, 19 mm, 25 mm, 30 mm, 38 mm and 50 mm. As for the D2 dispenser, it is compatible with the same roll widths as the D1 with the exception of the 15 mm and 19 mm wide rolls. It is the outer diameter of the rolls that differentiates the D1 dispensers from the D2s. The D1 manual dispensers can support rolls with a diameter limited to 122 mm, while the dispenser D2 dispensers are reserved for the use of adhesive rolls with an external diameter of 142 mm.
Please note that both D1 and D2 dispensers are available in “TN” versions. TN versions sport a special blade that is suitable for filament adhesives. This special *manual tape dispenser** TN blade is even more rigid than that of the D1 and D2, and the teeth of the blade are also slightly longer. Apart from the difference in blade type, the D1 TN and D2 TN can accommodate the same dimensions of adhesive rolls as the D1 and D2 devices respectively.
