Venture Tape Corp., Rockland, Mass., has installed a new custom-built coating line and fully automated slitting equipment for the pressure sensitive tape market. The new equipment will allow the company to double its production, along with its recently completed 30,000-sq.-ft. addition.

The new coating line has multiple inline coating capabilities, applying as many as three simultaneous coatings to one or both sides of the web. The fully automated slitter slits the roll, performs carton assembly, shrink-wraps, inserts slip-sheets, and packs tape into cartons robotically and places the finished cartons on a pallet for shipping. It also affixes labels bearing lot numbers, bar codes, and order information.

Venture Tape has averaged annual growth rates of better than 10% during the past 20 years, and has grown from six employees to more than 200. For more information contact them at 800-343-1076.
