What if you learned your company's packaging department could save an employee a potential hand injury by adding a simple string to your tape?

Or imagine your engineer told you he had a groundbreaking innovation to eliminate damage caused by people cutting into your product when they opened it, saving you $100,000 in returns.

Could you see your very own business benefitting from these two best practices?

It’s these two concepts, safety and cost savings, that have people talking about Ripcord by IPG. This innovative tape head drops into your existing taper and applies a thin cord underneath the tape, allowing the end user to easily open the package without the use of any knife. Simply pull the rip cord!

The Ripcord

The Ripcord
Utility knives and box cutters are common in today’s workplace, often leading to

  • Employee injuries
  • Missed days of work
  • Expensive claims and product damage

This innovative technology protects both the recipient of the package and the contents inside.


The Ripcord

A knife-free packaging solution

Innovative tape head technology works in conjunction with a case sealing machine. The technology applies cord under the carton sealing tape during the taping cycle, leaving a tab for fast, safe access to the package contents.
