The AF-102 is a device for preparing (finger cutting) machine tapes up to a width of 100 mm and a thickness of 2 mm for Flexproof (finger) joints. It is suitable for the standard 8 x 30 mm finger geometry. The tape is positioned and securely clamped on an aluminum support. Fingers are then cut manually. The cutter is precisely positioned on the support with a pin matching a row of precisely cut indexing grooves; the angle is given by a guiding block fixed to the cutter.
The AF-102 is suitable for the occasional on-site preparation of Hamid tapes.
