Bi-directional step-over tape applicator head

Tete d'application d'une bande d'enjambement bidirectionnelle

Hin- und hergehender bandaufbringmechanismus


Tape applicator head (12) for dispensing tape (T) onto a working surface in the construction of primarily structural parts. The tape applicator head (12) includes a slidably mounted cylinder (24) to which a rotation rack assembly (40) is mounted. The rotation rack assembly (40) includes a pair of dispensing and compacting blocks (48a, 48b) which are mounted to be stationary relative to each other but to pivot in unison relative to the remainder of the head at the end of a tape laying pass. This pivotal movement of the dispensing and compacting blocks produces the unique stepover or the looping of the tape.
