The ACCUFAST KT is a feature rich basic tabbing machine. It uses plain circular or rectangular tabs either opaque or clear. It tabs pieces up to 1/4" in thickness and it rolls the waste up on a take up spool. At speeds of 15,000 per hour or so, it is a stretch to refer to the ACCUFAST KT as a basic tabber - there's a lot of the professional in the KT.
The ACCUFAST KT has been characterized as the best table top tabber ever made. Nice to hear and well deserved. The KT is a crash tabber module. It must be used with a feeder and depending on the application a number of feeding devices are available. The KT is the basis of a simple professional level tabbing system. Combine it with an FX feeder and a CS3 output conveyor to create a simple tabbing system.
The KT and KT2 are similar tabbing modules. The main difference is in the added tabbing head on the KT2 allowing it to apply 1 or 2 tabs.
Both units are known as crash tabbers in which the edge of the piece to be tabbed is fed into the machine first. That edge contacts the tab which has fed down in front of the piece, pulling the tab from it's backing paper. The tab and the piece then crash into a sweep and roller system that folds the tab neatly and tightly to the piece.
Advantages of Crash Tabbers:
The FX feeder and the 3FV conveyor combine with the KT tabber to make the most reliable single tabbing system going. The FX may also be used in line with a KT2 and features a high speed variant - the FX-03.
