Guardian Taping System


Reduce downtime. Reduce material waste. Increase safety.

Save time. Save money.


With the Guardian Automatic Taping System, you get an innovative sealing system that puts an end to difficult tape roll changeovers that slow production, place unneeded stress on operators and keep lines from running at peak production.


It may seem tempting to take taping and case sealing for granted. But if you have tape that breaks, doesn’t seal properly, or doesn’t close the case correctly, you’ll have issues with production, re-working, and product protection.

The reality is that you need high performance tape, you need optimal application that uses the proper amount of tape and adhesive available, and you need a tape head with consistent, reliable performance.

That’s why Atlantic partnered with ShurTape to develop the Guardian Taping System.  This system uses hot melt adhesive with enhanced wipe-down pressure so you get full utilization of this adhesive.  It also has Folded Edge Technology that folds the edges of the tape along the length of the carton, reducing the possibility of nicks and tears along the tape seal, and allows the carton to be opened without the use of a knife. And it features technical service and preventive maintenance to maintain the performance of the tape heads.

We’re proud to offer such an innovative taping system to keep your operation running at optimal performance.

What We Offer

The Power of Performance


The Guardian Taping System is designed with multiple, flexible wipe-down points, which increases the wipe-down force by more than 75% over competitive tape applicators.

More wipe-down force results in deeper utilization of the tape’s adhesive into the corrugate’s fibers, creating a tamper-evident seal carton after carton.


Folded-Edge® Technology is a feature that folds both edges of the packaging tape along the length of the carton, 1 mm to 3 mm, as it’s applied. 

Reinforced Strength

Folded Edge adds more reliability in automated packaging systems by strengthening the tape’s edge – increasing the relative energy to break by 25%. This additional strength reduces the risk of the tape being nicked and broken, providing an added layer of security to keep carton contents secure from damage, contamination and theft.

Ready to Open Seals

Folded Edge also creates a secure, easy-to-open carton seal that doesn’t require a knife or other sharp instrument to open. Essentially, it creates a dry edge that allows the tape to be grasped and removed by hand, reducing the risk of product damage and worker injury attributed to knife cuts.


With facility maintenance teams overworked and more focused on the primary production of product – and not as much on the secondary packaging side – we’re able to come in and take ownership of your case sealing operation with Guardian.

Our technicians provide preventative maintenance on the tape heads, we provide the wear parts on the tape application device as part of your contract, and we really take ownership of the taping system to ensure you’re up and running at optimal performance.

“We’re excited to offer a high-performance taping system for automated packaging lines that decreases downtime, reduces damage, improves productivity, and brings about substantial gains in sustainability.”
