Splicing one roll of paper to another can cause a disruption in your process and therefore to the path of the paper going through your press. Our 3M™ Splicing Sensor Tab 5136F is designed to help minimize that disruption and return to a smooth, stable path as quickly as possible. This silver foil tab is used for processing down-line after a splice has been created. An inductive sensor picks up the signal from the sensor tab, and opens the dumping mechanism on the press to remove the splice. It is often used in partnership with 3M™ Splittable Flying Splice Tape.
3M™ Splicing Sensor Tabs come in three varieties: Silver Foil, Gloss Black and Matte Black. Choose the tab that works best for your particular splicing equipment.
For decades, 3M products have been at work in paper mills and printing plants helping to improve the quality of the work that goes out and the efficiency of how it gets done.
