The START International ZCM1000E electronic tape dispenser for two rolls of tape automatically cuts and advances predefined tape lengths, and is suitable for medium to high production of repetitive taping in industrial applications. The modified cutting head cuts tape from two rolls at the same time. The dispenser accepts tape rolls in widths from 0.28 to 2" (7 to 51 mm), with an outside roll diameter up to 7"/178 mm. Using the LED display panel, feed and cut can be set to automatically advance and cut the material when the dual photosensors detect that both pieces of tape have been removed. The photosensors provide accurate and consistent feeds and cuts. The feed and cut can also be operated manually with a push button. Preset lengths of 0.79 to 39" (20 to 999 mm) can be overridden for a custom cut, and then returned to the autofeed settings. Feed roller pressure can be adjusted for tape thickness. The guillotined cut provides a straight edge to the dispensed tape. Estimated blade life is 200,000 cuts, depending upon the type of tape material. Cut length tolerance is + or â 0.04"/1 mm. The 3-in-1 core holder allows a range of tape roll sizes to be mounted. The dispenser has a steel frame for durability and a cabinet made from flame-retardant, anti-static composite. The ZCM1000E tape dispenser operates on 117 VDC at 50/60 Hz. It is suitable for industrial uses such as manufacturing, assembly, and packaging.

Tape dispensers hold and cut tape. They are used in manufacturing, assembly, and packaging. Tape guns are portable, hand-held tape dispensers that are useful for small jobs. Table-top dispensers allow an operator to tear off the tape and then bring it to the point of application. Manual table-top dispensers allow an operator to pull and tear any amount of tape, or to dispense a fixed amount of tape by use of a hand lever. Electronic dispensers may be actuated by the push of a button or by a sensor that detects when the previously cut length of tape has been removed. Most tape dispensers work with pressure-sensitive tapes, such as transparent office tape, packing tape, or strapping tape. Gummed tape dispensers, also known as water-activated tape dispensers, work with water-activated adhesive tape. These dispensers moisten each piece of tape as it is dispensed.
START International manufactures tape dispensers, label dispensers, and optical inspection tools. The company, founded in 1981, is headquartered in Addison, TX.
