Abstract

The present invention provides an adhesive binding tape cutter capable of automatically forming a tab that makes it easy to peel off an adhesive tape when the adhesive tape is used to bind an object. An adhesive binding tape cutter 1 comprises: a tape-supporting member for supporting an wound body of adhesive tape 13 in a rotatable manner; a guide-path 15 for connecting an inlet 16 and an outlet 17 for object W; a tape-supplying member 29 for guiding an adhesive tape 12 drawn from the wound body of adhesive tape 13 into the guide-path 15 and for surrounding object W with the adhesive tape 12; and a tape-cutting member 34 that is located behind the tape-supplying member 29 in the guide-path 15 and protrudes so that the tape-cutting member 29 can enter into the guide-path 15; wherein an overlapping-area-forming mechanism 20 for forming an overlapping area 12C by folding under a margin 12E of the adhesive tape 12 in a specified width toward its adhesive surface 12A side is placed between the tape-supporting member and the guide-path 15.

  1. 1. An adhesive binding tape cutter for binding an object with adhesive tape, comprising: a tape-supporting member for supporting a wound body of adhesive tape in a rotatable manner around which a tape whose one side is an adhesive surface is wound; a guide-path for connecting an inlet and an outlet for the object; a tape-supplying member for guiding the adhesive tape drawn from the wound body of adhesive tape into the guide-path and for surrounding the object with the adhesive tape; and a tape-cutting member that is located behind the tape-supplying member in the guide-path and protrudes so that the tape-cutting member can enter into the guide-path; wherein an overlapping-area-forming mechanism for forming an overlapping area of the adhesive tape, along at least one margin in its lengthwise direction, that is made by folding under the adhesive tape in a specified width toward the adhesive surface side is placed between the tape-supporting member and the guide-path, and wherein the overlapping-area-forming mechanism comprises: a first support member that is located near an adhesive-tape-unwinding position of the wound body of adhesive tape and supports a non-adhesive surface of the adhesive tape; a fold-starting member that is located downstream of the first support member, supports the adhesive surface of the adhesive tape while leaving a specified folding width along the margin of the adhesive tape, and folds the folding width area; a main folding member that is located downstream of the fold-starting member and folds under, at an acute angle, the area of the adhesive tape folded by the fold-starting member; and an attaching member that is located at a position opposite to the main folding member, supports the non-adhesive surface of the adhesive tape, and presses and attaches the area folded under by the main folding member to the adhesive surface of the adhesive tape.
