Shurtape, Hickory, N.C., introduced Prime Alert, a tape monitoring system designed to issue audible and visual alerts to signal packaging line operators of low tape, no/missing tape, broken tape, uncut tape and/or case jam.

For added flexibility, Prime Alert is available with an optional light tree installed, providing control of the packaging line, even when operators aren’t physically present. Prime Alert can also be tied into a programmable logic controller (PLC) system to stop the case erector/sealer or conveyor before issues get out of hand.
