Description

The Better Pack 500 Ink Jet System is a simple-to-use electronic water-activated tape dispenser (also known as a paper tape dispenser, gummed or gum tape dispenser, Kraft tape dispenser) combined with an integrated ink jet printer (which is sold separately). The Better Pack 500 Ink Jet System enables custom printed one-color messages or time stamps directly on the tape as it is dispensed.

The BP500 Ink Jet tape dispenser’s keypad is calibrated in inches and the voltage is 115V.  The Better Pack 500 Ink Jet uses reinforced and non-reinforced water-activated tape, gummed side in.

Like all Better Packages’ electronic tape dispensers, the Better Pack 500 Ink Jet meets or exceeds UL, CE and CSA standards for operator safety. 

Important to note, the BP500IJ is designed to accept the printer head, which is sold separately along with the controller, software and ink. See options below that are required to be purchased to complete the Ink Jet System.
