The extra long TapeFormer has been developed to bring the exit of the TapeFormer closer to the extruder head, where the fixing positions for the TapeFormer are distant.
The reason for having the exit close to the extruder head is so the tape is not allowed to unfold. The Model XL is manufactured to a length you specify.
When ordering the Model XL we will require you to specify the required length of the TapeFormer and also the inside diameter of the tube leading into the extruder head.
Our engineers are able to give you specific advice and guidance should you require.
