<What is the “air touch system”?>
The “Air Touch System” is a proprietary mechanism that controls the tape running by using the force of pressing and releasing the modified head to the paper. When used, it switches to “run” and “stop” when unused. Specifically, (1) A small force (driven at 100g or less) that the correction head hits on the paper will move the arm and unlock the supply reel in the body. (2) When the head is released from the paper, the back supply reel is locked and the tape drive stops.
To control the tape running in this way, the load that was applied to the reel for the purpose of preventing sagging (force to be difficult to rotate) is not required, it was possible to lighten the tape running from the beginning to use.
“Air Touch System” was commercialized in June 2016 with a vertical-pull Correction Tape . With a favorable reputation and a 10% increase in annual rate, we have introduced this type of side action type .
