The START International TDH2O5 electric gummed water-activated tape dispenser automatically cuts, advances, and moistens predefined lengths of gummed tape. The dispenser accepts plain or reinforced tapes in roll widths from 1.5 to 3" (38 to 76 mm), with an outside roll diameter up to 8"/203 mm and a roll length up to 600'/182 m. An easy-touch electronic keypad allows the operator to select from 28 preset cut lengths. There are 14 buttons for preset lengths from 6 to 45" (15 to 114 cm), and a button to double any preset length. Both the feed and the cut can also be operated manually with a push button that feeds the tape as long as the button is pressed. An adjustable heating element provides maximum wetting and activation of adhesive in cold climates. The dispenser uses a triple moistening brush system with an ABS plastic corrosion-resistant water tray. A 46 oz./1.3 L water bottle allows long intervals between fill-ups and does not have any connecting tubes. The quiet drive motor only operates when the length button is engaged. Dispensing speed is up to 45"/1143 mm per second. The dispenser has a steel frame, stainless steel tape guides, and powder-coated finish for durability and resistance to corrosion. The TDH2O5 dispenser is suitable for use in all shipping departments.

Tape dispensers hold and cut tape. They are used in manufacturing, assembly, and packaging. Tape guns are portable, hand-held tape dispensers that are useful for small jobs. Table-top dispensers allow an operator to tear off the tape and then bring it to the point of application. Manual table-top dispensers allow an operator to pull and tear any amount of tape, or to dispense a fixed amount of tape by use of a hand lever. Electronic dispensers may be actuated by the push of a button or by a sensor that detects when the previously cut length of tape has been removed. Most tape dispensers work with pressure-sensitive tapes, such as transparent office tape, packing tape, or strapping tape. Gummed tape dispensers, also known as water-activated tape dispensers, work with water-activated adhesive tape. These dispensers moisten each piece of tape as it is dispensed.
START International manufactures tape dispensers, label dispensers, and optical inspection tools. The company, founded in 1981, is headquartered in Addison, TX.
