If you produce non-woven fabric or use it during production, the chances of dealing with splice tapes are extremely high. Splice tape ensures a continuous workflow by combining the multiple rolls of fabric in your production. However, there are multiple challenges that come along with the splicing process. For example:
- How can you ensure that any part of the splice area does not end up in your final product?
- Can the tape bond endure pressures applied from the machines in your production line?
- Is the tape flexible enough to not cause damage?
In the following article, we’ll discuss the qualities and benefits of Davik’s Splice Tapes and how you can significantly improve your splicing process and thereby optimize your production.
How Is Splicing A Blessing And A Curse For Manufacturers?
The splicing process is a necessity if you want to maintain efficient operations and save time. There are, however, some challenges manufacturing teams face when they rely on splice tapes. These issues not only slow you down but also have the potential of impacting the overall quality of your final product. Even if you have been in the non-woven market for a long time and have had a lot of experience with splice tapes, the following problems still affect you.
Splicing Is Susceptible To Failure
Every production line has a unique set of conditions, leaving you with a number of considerations when it comes to selecting the right splice tape.
With your current splicing procedure, how are you identifying and removing all the splices throughout production? Can the process be optimized? How does your operator avoid making critical mistakes?
It’s important to understand why splicing tapes fail. The following three reasons are the most common for splicing failures:
- Adhesion formula that is not suitable for its application
- Error by a human operator
- Lack of tape flexibility
The Result of Failed Quality Control for Your Splicing Process
It is a serious challenge for manufacturers when splicing defects remain in your final product and can’t be detected automatically. The tape itself and the entire area where the splice tape was applied are unusable. If any remnant of a splice appears in your end product and reaches the consumer it can result in significant damage to your brand name as well as loss in market share.
Get Best Results with Davik’s Revolutionary Splice Tape
We, at Davik, set out to develop a product that can address these exact issues with a special focus for the nonwoven industry. Today, our Splice Tape is unmatched in adhesion strength and can operate in almost any condition. Customizable for a wide variety of production lines of different measurements and speed including converting and folding machines. Our Splice Tapes are detectable by metal and optical sensors, which makes them perfect for automating the entire process.
Completely Detectable for a Faster and More Accurate Process
We know how essential splicing is to keep your manufacturing process efficient. That’s, why we created our splicing tape to be “idiot-proof” and give you 100% assurance that zero splices will be found in the final product.
Our metal detection splice tape addresses all the splicing problems you likely face today. With unmatched detection capabilities that enable your production line to be fully automated while accurately detecting all spliced parts.
How Does It Work?
The splice is made detectable either via metal or color detection that can be integrated within the production line. Since our splicing tape itself is made from aluminum and can also be colored (usually blue or red, other colors available). This makes for the splice tape to be highly detectable by either or both metal detention or color detection sensors that can be integrated in the production line. With this automation of the splice removal in place, the plant manager can be completely alleviated from the responsibility. And your optimized workflow will provide assurance that your end product is completely clean from splicing defects.
Safe and Easy to Use
The tape is made to be extremely easy to tear by hand and can be applied in a matter of seconds. No machinery, scissors or any sharp tool needed.
Customize to Make Your Process as Efficient as Possible
Davik’s offers you the option to customize the best solution for your application. From the detection method, colorד to dimensions and other specs that are right for your process. For example, the metal detection splice tape comes in three different variants. Each variant is suitable for a specific application which differs according to the material, speed, and other parameters. Don’t worry, our experts at Davik will be there to guide you through the entire process and help you make the best choice.
Great Shear Resistance and Flexibility
Davik prides itself on providing the best overall quality. When it comes to adhesives, well that’s kinda our thing. Machine processes require enhanced shear strength along with flexibility and our splice tapes adhesive more than just pass the standard tests. They are very strong. Our tapes can be easily adhered to any surface and can be relied on to actually last through the entire production cycle.
