We all shop, that’s for sure. Many of us also sell products, either in an actual store or online, or we have our own private retail business. In order to deliver our products, we usually use cardboard boxes because they offer strength and durability. This entails lots and lots of packaging and sealing of those packages. If your business is successful, that means a lot of wasted hours just preparing the packages to be delivered or transported. Instead of having to put up with all the extra work of taping all the individual packages, why don’t use a machine to do it for you? And by machine, we don’t mean just any machine. Here at AHM, we want to make things easier for both sellers and buyers, both senders and recipients. We wish to simplify the process of sealing and opening of your cardboard packages, and that’s exactly what we do.

By this stage, you will probably ask : how ? This is how it goes: we have created a taping machine called Inter-HST, which can be used for sealing and taping all kinds of packages. The machine’s width, which can be custom made, determines the maximum cardboard format and tape application size.

The speed of our machine ranges from minimum 20 meters per minute to the maximum speed of incredible 200 meters per minute. Of course, the speed depends on things such as the quality,dimensions and shape of the cardboard. In other words, the better the cardboard, the faster the taping process.The speed is also determined by other details, including the type of corrugated flute, the flatness of the material, tear tape application, size,shape and grammage of the box blank – you get the idea.

With the length of 6,175 meters and weight of around 4,5 tonnes, our standard machine, Inter-HST 165, is capable of processing cardboard format width anywhere between the minimum of 80 millimeters (8 centimeters) and maximum 1.650 mm (1,65 m). That’s just to give you a taste of what our machine has to offer. The Inter-HST also comes equipped with numerous other features and options that include:

  • Feeder with AC drive or servo drive
  • Dual line design
  • Envelope solution
  • Teartape applicator coupled with a pneumatic actuator or servo head drive
  • Control of tape presence in bunker and applicators
  • Numerous hotmelt options
  • Pusher for high stability glue application
  • Various special tools
  • Original instructions
  • Online support for electronic hardware and software
