BK730 Tabber Info

The Industry Leader in Tabbing Since 1997

Meet Postal Guidelines

Gain extra production time and ultimately, make higher profits with a system that delivers reliable performance day-in day-out, makes job changeovers easy and fast, and applies tabs or labels at the right place with a wrap that meets your quality expectations. Intended for inline installation at the output of a mailing transport or finishing line, the BK730 tabber delivers high-speed operation, accurately and consistently placing tabs in accordance with postal regulations and finishing requirements. And if you want to simply apply a label or seal a gate fold by bypassing the tab forming section, you can do that too.

Able to apply up to 3 tabs per edge at speeds of 30,000 labels/hour and 350 ft/min, the BK730 can even with an optional bump turn kit and two units placed back-to-back, manage the 3-sided tabbing requirements for self-mailers and booklets. Designed to work with tabs and labels of varying sizes, shapes and types, the labeling head includes auto-sensing and a smart way to space tabs just the way the postal service wants.

With the BK730 nothing is left to chance. Every element, every process from guiding the product to the tab peel point, dispensing the tabs, and the tab forming section itself has been conceived to ensure tight, accurate tab placement. That’s why the BK730 tabber remains the tabber of choice in the industry.

Wrap your Tabs Tightly and Accurately

The tabber’s biased belts look after edge registration by guiding products for either top or bottom tabbing while the upper transport exit belts firmly pinch and convey the tabbed product past the tab forming unit. The result, a tabbing operation that produces the tightest and most accurate tab wraps in the industry.

Easily Configure Your Jobs with Simple Controls

From entry to exit, product size and thickness adjustment controls quickly prepare the transport unit to convey, align and present products for either bottom or top side tabbing. Adjustment points are few in number and easy to understand. Start with a movable registration section to align products on entry, then complete the product setup procedure by adjusting the exit transport belts for product thickness. It’s that simple.

The BK731 labelling head features a mechanism designed with few mechanical parts for simple tab threading and machine configuration, a rail mount system for rapid side-to-side tab placement, and a peel-point assembly with integrated tab sensor for auto-sensing and quick product thickness adjustment.  Equipped with a keypad interface for convenient job parameter entries and motion control software that regulates and smoothly unspools tabs, the labeling head applies tabs of all sizes and shapes from ½” X ½” up to 5” X 7” without missing a beat. Simply program the product length, number of tabs, type of tabs and begin the tabbing process; The system automatically detects and sets both tab pitch and backer sensitivity, and determines tab placement, without any guess work required. To maintain accurate, tolerable tab placement throughout the job, the labeler includes a fast responsive tab drive with speed compensation that constantly monitors production output and adjusts tab placement when needed.
