MONTREAL, QUEBEC and SARASOTA, FLORIDA -- Intertape Polymer Group® Inc.

“This brand new innovative technology will allow our customers to automate in the fulfilment industry using water-activated tape as a premier packaging sealing system,” states Joy Scott, Product Manager for Machinery. “This is a game changer for many of our customers who want the security and reliability of water-activated tape as a closure to protect their valuable products but need processing speeds of 10-12 cases per minute.”

IPG developed the Random Auto H2O to fulfil the market’s need for a low cost, low maintenance case sealer with high throughput speed. It is ideal for the fulfilment industry as this case sealer automatically adjusts to different sized RSC (Regular Slotted Containers) that need to be sealed at the end of the packaging line.

Similar to IPG’s tabletop WAT taper, the Random Auto H2O also features a patent pending roller wetting technology which reduces maintenance to keep the wetting mechanism clean, evenly dispenses water across the tape, and has rollers that will not support the growth of bacteria or mold.
