Tape and Label - Industry Solutions

The wide range of capabilities offered by ITW Dynatec’s technologies, including compatibility with a wide range of substrates, adhesives, speeds, widths and coat weights, open up a remarkable range of options for tape manufacturers. From one-inch-wide paint tape to sixty inch master rolls, with a .5 ml to 10 ml coating, tape of all kinds is made possible by ITW Dynatec technology, including:

  • Medical
  • Construction
  • Pressure sensitive tapes
  • Permanent tapes
ITW Dynatec has also developed a whole series of slot die technologies for laying down highly precise coat weights on either release liner or on the tape substrate itself:
  • Cross-web distribution accuracies to ±3%.
  • Ideal for heat sensitive materials.
  • Coat weights as low as 1gsm.
  • Coat weight and width changes during production.
  • Consistent coating on irregular surfaces.
  • Streak-free finish. 
  • Non-contact application encapsulates surface contaminants instead of trapping them between the die lip and substrate, producing consistent coating performance while minimizing waste.
The Technology: Apex Slot Die
  • Ideal for precise high-speed intermittent applications
  • Optional non-heated die width extension(s) for easier substrate handing
  • Air operated modules feature spring-assist close for precise cut-off
  • Die-lip design prevents build-up of unwanted materials


 The Dynatec Advantage
  • Significant adhesive savings. The Apex slot die adhesive applicator’s clean, crisp cutoff creates adhesive savings unmatched in the industry.
  • Product savings. Apex’s innovative design features, such as reverse-acting modules and optimized channels, minimize not only adhesive waste but also product waste.
