From our LinkedIn group:
We need to apply a heat-activated adhesive tape (3/4” and 1”) to the edge of a composite material consisting of polyester foam, PVC, and a nylon stretch fabric. The material is fabricated in two widths, and is cut into a variety of shapes, which are used for bracing of body parts.
We’re looking for something that can apply pressure – we’re thinking spring-loaded rollers - and 250°F heat along this edge width, and if it can feed and guide the tape to a centered position on the material, so much the better.
We're talking to a few machinists, but if anyone on the list has any vendors, equipment types, or other recommendations to offer, we'd appreciate it!
