When shipping and packaging items, efficient time and material usage is one of the most important parts. Tape dispensers make things go smoothly to allow for quicker processing of packaging items to be shipped. Tape dispensers are available in either manual or automatic, and the applications of each are based on your shipping/packaging volume.
If you only ship a few packages a day, then a manual tape dispenser is for you. With the help of a lever, just push down and preloaded tape is dispensed. You can pre-set the length of tape to be dispensed, usually anywhere between 0 and 8-12 inches. When the lever is released, the tape is cut and ready for use.
If packaging is a little more demanding than that, an automatic tape dispenser is the way to go. Automatic tape dispensers are electrically powered and can be programmed to pre-set lengths, similar to a manual tape dispenser. What makes an automatic tape dispenser more efficient is the ability to dispense tape "automatically".
What this means is that the dispenser utilizes a sensor to recognize when more tape is needed. Once you pull the piece of dispensed tape off, another piece automatically replaces it, removing the need for a button or lever to be pushed every time a piece of tape is needed. Automatic tape dispensers can also pre-set far greater lengths than a manual dispenser, which increases the versatility of how you can use it.
