The Scotty 5000 has taken the best features of the Scott Ten Thousand Automatic Plastic Index Tabbing Machine (aka Scott 10000 Automatic Plastic Index Tabber) and incorporated them into a compact unit. The Scotty 5000 uses a platen plastic sealing system that heats only the tab extension and an adjustable dwell function allows you to hold the sheet for a pre-determined time. Therefore, some difficult stocks that require special handling are easier to run. Unlike many pieces of automated equipment that require large runs because of make ready time, the Scotty 5000 is actually much faster to configure and get moving with jobs. The fast dial counter allows quick changeover of plastic length, tab cut width, as well as the position of the plastic on the paper. It is an excellent machine for long or short runs. Adjustments for film lengths, tab size and position is precisely measured to .01 and is easily repeatable.
This unit will laminate and tab cut up to 4,200 laminated index tabs per hour. Plain tabs will run at over 5,500 per hour. The Scotty 5000 is built in the Scott-Precision tradition. There is also an option available for the Scotty that allows you to run an 18 1/2-inch long sheet.
