The RLT 7000 is an ingenious automatic dispenser, designed for the fast handling of prede-termined lengths of double-sided tape strips. This device is extremely versatile and will greatly assist the industrial operator in their tasks. The RLT 7000 electric tape dispenser is compatible with plain adhesive tapes, single-sided lined adhesive tapes and double-sided adhesive tapes.
Setting up the dispenser and loading the roll
To start, make sure the device is not plugged in to the power supply. Then, place the double-sided tape roll around the hub on the upper structure of the unit. Take care to orient the roll so that it is dispensed from the outside of the reel, as shown in the presentation photos. Place the double-sided adhesive film over the first drive roll and separate the adhesive part from its backing paper. Fold the adhesive tape down onto the RT7000 rolls. Finally, grasp the liner and wrap it around the winding machine provided for this purpose.
Connect the automatic dispenser to a 250 V / 50 Hz socket using the power cable supplied with the device. Next, start the unit by pressing the ON /OFF button on the back of the automatic tape dispenser. Then slide the double-sided adhesive tape between the rollers of the RT7000 and close the hold-ing cover. Press the FWD button to dispense the first piece of adhesive tape. Finally press the START but-ton to cut the double-sided tape. The RLT7000 is now ready for use.
The electric adhesive tape dispenser RLT 7000 allows the programming of 6 dispensing lengths ranging from 5 mm to 999 mm. These dispensing lengths are listed from letter A to letter F. The desired measurements will first have to be in keyed in. To do this, press the SELECT button on the device and choose a letter. Once the letter is selected, adjust the desired length by press-ing the + and – buttons on the device. For faster value scrolling, press and hold. The scrolling will then be done in increments of 5 mm. Press the SELECT button again to move to the next pro-grammable letter. Once the letters have been allocated lengths, semi-automatic dispensing mode or automatic mode can be selected.
To confirm the functionality of this mode, make sure the blue LED on the instrument panel is off. If the latter is on, press the AUTO / MANU button. Press the FWD button to dispense a first piece of tape, then choose the letter. Then press the START button to cut the double-sided adhesive tape. To release a new piece of tape, press the START button again.
To select this mode, make sure the blue LED is illuminated. If this is not the case, press the AUTO / MANU button on the automatic reel. Then navigate between the different length options rang-ing from A to F and select one. A first adhesive tape will automatically unwind to the measure-ments according to the length option selected. Once the piece of tape has been released, a new adhesive tape will automatically be dispensed thanks to a photoelectric detection cell.
Predefining multiple cut-outs
The RLT 7000 has two selection modes for determining the number of cut-outs.
The P-Mode This first mode can be used in automatic mode and in semi-automatic mode. It allows the user of the double-sided adhesive dispenser to predefine the number of pieces of tape to be dispensed ranging from 5 to 999 pieces. To do this, the operator must first select one of the 6 recorded programs using the SELECT key. Then press and hold the SELECT button again, so that the “LCON” index appears on the display. Release the button and press the SELECT button one last time to display the letter “P” on the instrument panel. The RLT 7000 user can then define the number of adhesive films to be cut using the “+” and”-” buttons on the unit. In automatic mode, the RT7700 will switch to the next length setting once the cutting number counter displays “0”.
The L-Mode This mode has been specially designed for cutting non-adhesive tapes. The non-sticky nature of the material will allow cutting without necessary manual recovery by the operator. The distribu-tion is then looped and the user of the automatic dispenser will only have the task of collecting these pieces of tape at the end of the cycle. To use this program, select a set length using the SELECT button, then press and hold the SE-LECT button again, so that “LCON” appears on the data panel. Use the “+” and”-” keys to define the number of cuts. The automatic dispenser will then automatically dispense the strips.
Dispenser maintenance and cleaning
It is best to have the RLT7000 serviced by a qualified service technician as handling the unit’s components can be dangerous. DERFI’s teams offer complete maintenance of sold devices. From time to time, clean the blade with a solvent, and maintain with the silicone oil supplied with the unit.
DERFI has all the spare parts required for the operation of the RLT 7000. We can have the de-sired parts delivered at any time.
