Like all the other products in the TDA range, the TDA150 features an automatic dispensing system. This is the main advantage of this electric device which offers 4 modes of operation designed to meet the requirements of each operator.
The manual mode:
This function is the one that provides the most control to its user, in the rhythm and determination of the cut lengths. This way, the operator will decide, by judgment, of the measurement of the adhesive strips that they wish to collect, by keeping the ADVANCE key pressed. Once this key is released, the unwinding stops and the user must then proceed to cut the piece of tape by pressing the CUT key.
The semi-automatic mode:
Here, manual unwinding is maintained. This way the operator will decide of the length of the strip of tape by pressing the ADVANCE button again. However, this mode differs from the previous one by the automation of its cutting. Indeed, once the ADVANCE key is released, the piece of tape is cut automatically by the dispenser.
The automatic mode:
In this mode, the adhesive tape is dispensed in a fully automatic manner. In fact, the length of the cut can be programmed in advance using the length selection button located at the bottom left of the device. The number pad then indicates the measurement of the strip of tape that will be dispensed. Once this measurement has been defined, the TDA150 automatically unwinds and cuts the adhesive film. After the piece of tape had been taken by the user, a new strip will be automatically be delivered. This feature frees the user from any manual action, with exception of the handling of the adhesive tape at the end.
The interval mode:
The TDA150 offers this original function which allows the user to decide of a time interval between each of the sequences. For example, the operator can determine the distribution of tape pieces every 20 seconds. This allows the user of the automatic dispenser to perform multiple tasks without loosing time.
The other great feature of this adhesive dispensing device that cuts to length resides in its programmable length cutting system. This device allows the storage of a preferred measurement contained between 40 mm and 9999 mm in length. This feature can only be used with automatic and interval modes. Each new strip being dispensed is then the same length as the previous one, within a tolerance of 1 mm.
The TDA150 is also a very versatile electric adhesive film dispenser. Its dimensions and robustness allow for the reception of rolls of all sizes and all types. This electric dispenser can therefore accommodate rolls with a width between 6 mm and 150 mm. Similarly, the TDA150 can support rolls of adhesive tape with a maximum outer diameter of up to 251 mm. It should be noted that this industrial dispenser is delivered with 3 hubs of 76 mm each welded onto a main hub.
As stated previously, it is important to note that the TDA150 can accommodate 3 thin rolls that are up to 50mm wide for simultaneous distribution.
Concerning the type of adhesives, TDA150 is compatible with most adhesive tapes and some non-adhesive films.
The different parts of the TDA150
The blade of this electronic dispenser is made of reinforced steel. The TDA150 can, be supplied with three types of blades – upon request, each of which serves for cutting different types of adhesive.
The first is a blade with tight notches. It is the most used for cutting traditional adhesives. The second blade has thick notches for cutting tougher adhesive tapes. Finally, the last blade is a smooth blade, designed for a perfectly clean cut.
The TDA150 blades are attached to a guillotine cutting system. This cutting mode ensures a smooth, straight cut with a single press. In addition to its precision, this cutting system is completely secure. This automatic dispenser has a photoelectric detection cell programmed for the recognition of any non-tape or film material such as fingers. This feature allows the use of the TDA150 in centres for people with disabilities such as [CAT and ESAT](SEO ESAT).
The drive rollers have also been designed and manufactured for a smooth and continuous cutting of adhesive parts. Thus, the first rollers are made of reinforced steel to resist wear and tear. These are accompanied by another set of foam rollers so as not to damage the adhesive and keep the top of the adhesive strip intact.
Lastly, the frame of this industrial tape dispenser is extremely robust. It is entirely metallic and therefore ensures the protection of the parts housed in it.
In case of breakdown or defective parts, DERFI offers the supply and repair of all spare parts for the TDA150.
As shown in the video above, an add on that allows the use of a foot pedal is available for this adhesive dispensing device. This foot pedal well enable the operator to free both of their hands thus allowing them to perform other function during this time.
The TDA150 therefore has all the characteristics of a multi-functional, robust and highly efficient tool. This provides a time savings whilst ensuring production quality.
