Why JT-SLT-1400C Water Activated Kraft Paper Tape Printing Slitting Machine

Last Update Time:03/02/2024

In 2022, Jota Machinery’s newly released water-activated kraft paper tape printing and slitting machine began to enter the market. Why?

Due to the increased environmental awareness in all countries in recent years, the use efficiency of water-based kraft paper tapes has increased frequently.

WAT tape printing slitting machine

Because some of the freshmen didn’t know what to do or how to address the problem when operating our slitting machine, we created a troubleshooting page.

Please read through this page.

A Korean customer also wished to purchase water activated kraft paper tape printing slitting machine, and this Korean customer sent us a water-activated gummed paper tape jumbo roll.

We can test the machine with the Korean client’s reinforced kraft tape jumbo roll and then share the machine test video with the Serbian customer.

meter counter

As a result of this synchronicity, both Serbian and Korean clients intuitively perceive the slitting and rewinding impact.

We can test machines according to customer requirements and eliminate customers’ doubts in all aspects because Jota machinery has our own factory and has accumulated rich experiences in the thermal paper roll slitting machine, ready-made gummed tape printing slitting machines, ready-made kraft paper tape jumbo rolls.

Meanwhile, we also supply an Economic Type WAT tape Slitter Rewinder machine, it is only a slitting machine without the inline printing line, please check the video.

The JT-SLT-1400C’s unwinding part has a shaftless unwind stander.

hydraulic shaftless unwinder stand

This means that you don’t have to thread the unwinding shaft into the jumbo roll, which saves time at startup.

The unwinding section also has a hydraulic automatic jumbo roll loading system.

To load or unload jumbo rolls, just press the control button on the machine or use the remote control.

The printing department of JT-SLT-1400C creatively designed the buffer, also called the accumulator, it is composed of servo motors, multiple functional rollers, lead screws, and other components.

When a rewinding is completed, the operator must replace the rewinding shaft; the slitting process has stopped, but the printing process continues to operate.

The buffer allows the material to run for a period of time in the buffer, which compensates for the winding shaft replacement time.

Printing and slitting can thus be seamlessly linked to achieving continuous machine operation, increased equipment uptime, and increased production efficiency.

In addition, the printing department introduces a web guidance system, which ensures that the pattern location of the printed jumbo roll precisely enters the slitting section, improving the consistency and beauty of the final tiny roll.


Web Guiding System

The slitting part of JT-SLT-1400C adopts the design of upper and lower circular knife shear cutting, which can fully guarantee the precision of slitting.

Upper Circular Knives

Moreover, Above the upper circular knife, a banana roller is installed.

You also have options for a fully automatic knife positioning system for the slitting width adjustment.

You only need to enter the slitting data on the touch screen, and the slitting size will be calculated automatically.

                                     Fully Automatic Knife Positioning System  for Slitter Rewinder 

It can efficiently separate the narrow strips of kraft paper tape after slitting, reducing the problem of tape overlapping between neighboring narrow bands and guaranteeing that the borders of each tiny roll are smooth and beautiful, making it simple to entice terminal consumers to purchase.

Today I’ll discuss water-activated paper tape machines.

The water-activated paper tape is rolled on a D25mm paper tube and is 100-200m long.

This shape resembles our cash roll machine.

All paper ribbon rolls are stored in a 0.5″-1″ paper tube.

Is it possible to create them on the same machine because they are comparable in size?

Our experts observed that the water-activated tape is 80-100gsm thick, has a tougher feel, and is slippery due to the adhesive coating.

There is also a reinforced water-activated tape made of two layers of kraft paper and two layers of glass fiber mesh, which is stronger and requires technology and knowledge to process.

Based on the above, we need to enhance the following.

Eye-catching Banana Roller

The winding part of JT-SLT-1400C is equipped with an automatic tucker, it quickly trigger the winding;

The winding division is also equipped with an automatic tail-cutting gluing unit, it can automatically cut and glue the paper tail.

These designs can effectively shorten the time required for a single winding and effectively improve production efficiency.

Automatic Tail Cutting Gluing Unit

There are also many other small details about the design of JT-SLT-1400C, those detailed designs are finished by Jota designers’ hard work.

You are welcome to call or mail us for consultation.

If you are willing to open a water-activated kraft paper tape slitting factory, our industry experience can help you avoid some detours and create your own profits in this industry as soon as possible.

In 2022, more and more customers have inquired about water-activated kraft paper tape-slitting machines.

This environmentally friendly and pollution-free material is bound to be popular all over the world.

Water Activated Kraft Paper Tape Printing Slitting Machine Ultimate FAQ Guide

Because of the ease of packing, numerous tapes are now used for a variety of reasons.

I recommend the currently popular water base activated kraft paper gum tape (WAT), which is constructed of kraft paper base paper that has been uniformly coated with edible vegetable starch adhesive, pressure-sensitive adhesive, or a heat-sensitive adhesive before drying in a high-temperature dry oven.

Till now we have upgraded our water activated slitting machine to the 3rd generation.

slitting packing line

There are also high-quality tapes that are sandwiched with longitudinal glass fiber filaments or glass fiber mesh to reinforce the water-based activated gum tape (WAT).

fiberglass reinforced

This type of tape is environmentally safe and pollution-free, recyclable and renewable resources, anti-unpacking, has high stickiness, has no warping, extended shelf life, and ensures long-term stickiness without moisture.

It is widely employed in a variety of fields.

Because kraft paper has printing qualities, it is feasible to print diverse designs or company logos on its surface to meet various market demands.

Water-free kraft paper tape, high-temperature resistant kraft paper tape, wet water kraft paper tape, white kraft paper tape, layered kraft paper tape, and so forth.

Water Activated Tape Slitting Machine

Water-activated tape printing slitting machine is mainly used for cutting gummed paper tape jumbo rolls and then winding separated gummed tape strips into small finished gum tape rolls.

With regard to Jota water-activated tape printing slitting machine JT-SLT-1400C, it is initially designed for a Turkish client for cutting and winding thermal paper.

Later, when we used different slitting rewinding machines to process the kraft paper tape jumbo rolls sent by Korean customers, the winding effect was not very good.

Because the kraft paper tape is relatively hard, bouncy, and the small roll that comes out is loose, and someone needs to stick the tape head on the paper or plastic core at the beginning.

When we use JT-SLT-1400C to handle the kraft paper tape jumbo roll, the effect is very good.

Finished Water Activated Tape Roll

Your company’s logo or the customer’s company name will be printed directly on the surface of the kraft paper tape, which not only improves the aesthetics but also has an advertising effect.

After printing, you will have better paper tape production and added value.

printed wat tape

The characteristics of kraft paper surface are relatively rough and easy ink absorption, we recommend that you have an anilox roll line less than 300LPI.

The ink load per square inch of the 300LPI anilox roller is 8.82g.

Below this figure, the ink consumption amount is too small, and the printing pattern on the kraft paper may not be too clear

Anilox Roller:  The size of the grid determines how much ink is loaded. The ink loading capacity of 500LPI is 5.13, which means that the 500LPI anilox roller can transfer 5.13 grams of water ink to one square inch of kraft paper.

The printing speed of the Water-activated kraft paper gummed tape is 70-100m/min.

You can also increase the printing speed to 150m/min by choosing a more advanced doctor blade closed chamber system.


Our Serbian customers’ 3-color tape printing machine has a doctor blade closed chamber and can print 150m/min.

The printing machine works continuously, but the tape slitter intermittently. The printing machine runs slowly while the kraft tape slitting machine is stopped to change the final tape roll.

Once the tape printing press is halted, the tension indicated by the relative material changes, affecting the already stable auto registration system and multi-color printing pattern.

Our engineers created a buffer, or called an accumulator, to store extra paper printing rolls.


The PLC synchronizes the tape printing and slitting machines.

When the tape slitter rewinder is stopped to change rolls, the printing machine works at low speed, and printed kraft paper tape is kept in the buffer.

When the gummed tape slitter rewinder starts working again, the tape printer’s speed rises and the gummed tape slitter runs at the same pace.

Two tape machines form a water-activated kraft paper gummed tape production line.

Our kraft paper tape printing machine offers 1-color, 2-color, 3-color, 4-color, and 8-color options.
