Often used in partnership with 3M™ Splittable Flying Splice Tape, our 3M™ Splicing Sensor Tab 5136M tells the splicer to automatically position a new web roll and splice the lead end of the new web to the tail end of the roll being printed.

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. 3M™ Splicing Sensor Tabs are designed to help you minimize that disruption and return to a smooth, stable path as quickly as possible.

3M™ Splicing Sensor Tabs come in three varieties: Matte Black (shown here), Gloss Black and Silver Foil. 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.
