The booth demonstrated the pressure-sensitive tabs, supplied in rolls and applied to a clear film web used to wrap whole potatoes. The film is first punched in the area where the tab goes. EZ Tabs are suitable for CDs and other hard-to-open packages. Operating at rates to 90 packages/min, the applicator can be retrofitted to Shanklin Model F-5A, HS-1, and HS-3 wrappers. The tabs can be printed with custom graphics.
