Taping / screening machines require a reliable and accurate constant tension system which can only be guaranteed by using "state of the art" brake designs. In this area the vHF taping lines play a major role. Customized tangential taping lines enable the taping of submarine cables up to 100 mm (4") diameter and plastic tubing up to 600 mm ( 23") diameter.
Concentric tapers (like tangential tapers) are also provided with electrical brake systems for tension control. By synchronizing a row of taping heads the tape overlap is held constant. A line of user friendly take-ups and pay-offs for use with taping lines as well as tape accumulators and pay-offs also form part of the vHF product range.
