The Accufast KT Tabbing System makes quick work of applying postal tabs to folded mailpieces. Using “crash tab” technology, 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 its 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, creating a mail-ready piece.
The Accufast KT tabber provides a short paper path with no need for skewing adjustment, and high productivity because the short edge of the document feeds through the machine, increasing production rates at any given speed. Accuracy is also key, as the tabs fold tight to the edge of the piece, without drifting from left to right.
The KT Tabber handles up to 15,000 pieces per hour, using a paper tabs in both 1” and 1.5” sizes. Depending on document specifications, the mail piece can be fed through in different directions, to apply tabs in various locations. The KT2 Tabber will handle only 1" size tabs.
High productivity. The shortest dimension feeds through the machine increasing production rates at any given speed.
Simplicity. Short paper path with no skewing adjustment etc.
Accuracy. Tabs fold tight to the edge of the piece and do not drift from left to right.
Ideal for off line application.
The Accufast FX Feeder, operators can input a stack of up to 8” of material to be tabbed. Adjustable side guides prevent document skewing.
The 3FV Conveyor offers adjustable speed from 0 - 120 fpm, and stacks tabbed pieces in a neat, sequential order for easy removal.
The KT2 offers two tabbing positions to have two tabs placed on a mail piece in different locations in a single pass
The Accufast KT-TT tabber will allow for a 2nd crash tabber to be run in-line with an existing KT tabber to have two tabs placed on a mail piece in different locations in a single pass.
Note: The KT tabbing systems requires the use of an FX feeder, they can not be used as a hand feed systems.
