The extra long TapeFormer was 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 A XL is manufactured to a length you specify.
When ordering the Model A XL we will ask you to specify the required length of the
TapeFormer and also the inside diameter of the tube leading into the extruder head.
Our Technical Team are able to give you specific advice and guidance should you require support in specifying the correct TapeFormer for your application.
