Further Patent Grant Announcement for TabTech®
Preston Technical, with their strong innovation background announce that their TabTech® product has been granted a further patent by the European Patent Office.
PRESTON, U.K. – December 22nd, 2021 — Preston Technical are pleased to advise that their TabTech® self- adhesive die-cut product has just been granted a further patent by the European Patent Office effective from November 24th, 2021. This in addition to the UK grant of patent announced in September this year.
TabTech® is a novel design of presenting specific die-cut lengths of double-sided self-adhesive tape in a unique roll form which incorporates a new method of enabling the tape release liner to be removed as an operator assembly aid.
This is a real asset in industrial manufacturing as it allows assembly operators to remove the protective liner of the tape whilst still wearing protective gloves and enables quick assembly of any taped component in the overall customer manufacturing process – which in turn increases efficiency.
This is especially important in fast moving assembly lines such as the automotive market.
Lee Parnell, Managing Director of Preston Technical commented “The automotive industry, in particular, is a truly global one and the expansion of our patent protection for TabTech® within the EU market will really enable us to ramp up our sales activity in this important area from 2022 onwards.”
