LOOPS OF STRING THROUGH TAGS, LABELS, AIR FRESHENERS AND
can string loops in a wide variety of products using our
TSS-1 Tag Stringer. Hang tags, product labels, award ribbons,
and air fresheners of various shapes and sizes are no problem
for this machine. There is no minimum product size, and
the maximum is quite generous. You can easily fit an item
up to 3" (7.6 cm) wide by 6" (15.2 cm) long. It
can also handle tags up to 10" (25.4 cm) wide and nearly
unlimited length, though extreme sizes may slow the operator
down. The only requirement of the items being tied is that
they have an existing hole in them at least 1/8" (3.2
mm) in diameter. The machine can not only tie paper and
cardstock products, but also thicker items as well as three-dimensional
objects. In some cases it has been used to tie loops in
small three-dimensional animal-shaped air fresheners.
TSS-1 can tie loops as small as 3" (7.6 cm) long to
a nearly limitless length. Loop length is dictated by how
far the operator pulls the tag through the machine. In extreme
cases, we have done 36" (91.4 cm) long loops. Repeatability
is accomplished by marking the table with a small piece
of low-adhesion tape. Every time the operator pulls a piece
through the machine, they pull it to the same spot marked
by the tape, giving every piece a nearly identical loop

machine will tie a wide variety
of elastic and non-elastic twine, and can be easily
switched from one to another depending on your application.
Please note that the knot appearance depends on the twine,
and is not adjustable on the machine. Most non-elastic
material will produce a "non-slip bow knot" as
seen in pictures 1, 2, 4, and 5 above. Most elastic material
will produce a "hard knot" as seen in picture
3 above and in the pictures to the right.
TSS-1 can cycle as quickly as once every second. In an ideal
situation where the operator could work as fast as the machine,
you could tie 60 pieces per minute, or 3600 pieces per hour.
In practice, the operator has to stop periodically to load
new tags, unload the tied tags, replace string, etc. Because
of this operators typically produce between 800 and 1400
pieces per hour. There is a small learning curve initially
as the operator gets accustomed to how the machine operates.
After that productivity is limited only by the operator's
