Improve Productivity Save Energy
A Revolutionary Cover Tape for Packaging Components in Tape & Reel

3M's Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) Calculator is provided to give customers an idea of cost savings achieved when using 3M PSA cover tapes versus Heat Activated Adhesive (HAA) cover tapes. This Calculator will take a look at specific production attributes associated with tape and reel packaging as follows:

a) sealing equipment (total used) f) peel test due to variability
b) number of work days g) maintenance (equipment downtime)
c) labor cost h) re-work (full reel versus specific pocket
d) energy i) spare parts (stocked)
e) equipment setup time  

3M realizes additional components of total production cost may be considered as production processes vary. Components of our calculator were based on VOC feedback which focused on cost reduction and improved throughput.
