STRAUB – Creating Tape Application Solutions for the Corrugated Industry

Straub Design is located in Minneapolis, MN and was found in 1972. Straub Design's founder, Melvin Straub, often talked about the thrill an engineer or designer experiences, "At the moment a machine you designed and built is turned on for the first time.” We’ve been getting and delivering those thrills to our customers since 1972. Today, Straub Design serves customers around the world, building standard-setting automatic tape application equipment.


The SD-40/SF-40 Automatic Taping System automatically feeds and applies transfer tape with liner in place and tear strip tape to a corrugated or paperboard blank at up to 350’ per minute. The compact footprint – requires less floor space than folder/ gluer. Removes taping from the folder/gluer and allows you to use the folder/gluer as it was intended and at the speeds it was intended to run

Top loading feeder permits loading while machine is operating.

ECommerce and the Corrugated Industry

The packaging industry over the past few decades has shifted from shipping bulk packages to brick and mortar locations to shipping smaller packages for eCommerce directly to the customers. In a world where speed and efficiency is crucial, Straub Design can provide solutions that are tailored to your needs. Our tape applicators can apply a variety of double-sided, adhesive transfer tapes for sealing products and tear tapes/reinforcement tapes for opening the box or strengthening parts of it. Straub tape application systems can be used on a wide variety of boxes, packages and mailers.
