Question: Which RENA tabbers can or can not apply 1.5 inch tabs?

Published: May 27, 2020

QUESTION: Which RENA models can apply 1.5″ tabs / postal wafer seals?

Answer: The following RENA models are capable of applying 1.5″ tabs (this applies to all current and all previous production units):

·         T-650, T-750, *T-950, *XPS-ProTab 4.0

* All T-950 and XPS-ProTab 4.0 units have the ability to apply 1.5″ tabs.
Starting with T-950 S/N 100025102 and XPS-ProTab 4.0 S/N 100025104, the ability to transport media as small as 4″ in length was added.

As of 9-18-09; the 1.5″ tabbing capability has been added to the following RENA models (this applies to new purchases only):

·         T-250, L-250, L-350 – Valid for new purchases only. Units shipped before 9-18-09 can NOT apply 1.5″ tabs.

Important: Media should be tested to be sure it will properly feed through tabber before these systems are sold to apply 1.5″ tabs. If the media hesitates or skews it will not be tabbed properly. In addition, the feeder must be tested using the proposed media.

 

QUESTION: Which RENA tabber models can NOT apply 1.5″ tabs?

Answer: The following tabber models can NOT apply 1.5″ tabs.

  • T-350
  • T-250 shipped before 9-18-09.  New units shipped on or after 9-18-09 can apply 1.5″ tabs.
  • L-250 shipped before 9-18-09.  New units shipped on or after 9-18-09 can apply 1.5″ tabs.
  • L-350 shipped before 9-18-09.  New units shipped on or after 9-18-09 can apply 1.5″ tabs.
  • UT-361 (legacy model) No longer supported
  • TL-100 (legacy model) No longer supported. TL-100 Feed rollers and separators are available
  • L-324 MT (legacy model) No longer supported.  L-324 Feed rollers and separators are available
  • L-326 (legacy model) No longer supported. L-326 Feed rollers and separators are available
    According to the specifications on the L-326; it should be capable of applying 1.5″ round tabs. However; since the L-326 uses “fan-fold” tab stock (not tabs on rolls), and we do not offer any 1.5″ “fan-fold” tab stock; this application has never been tested by RENA.  Therefore; this application will not be supported by RENA.
