Tabbing System

Vacuumatic Universal Tab Inserter (VUTI )

The Vacuumatic Universal Tab Inserter is the top-end solution for highly accurate online counting and batching of sheet delivered products such as sheet paper, commercial print and packaging. Mounted at the delivery end of almost any sheeter or printing press, the VUTI system enables operators to count and batch good copy, isolate areas of make-ready or spoil and return an accurate count of delivered piles.

The VUTI is supplied with either a pedestal stand or machine mounting kit. Tabs can be triggered either by signals from the press or sheeter counting system, or from one of a range of independent sensor systems that are available from Vacuumatic. Tabbing systems have been a feature of the Vacuumatic portfolio for over 30 years, the VUTI is the latest in a long line of market leading products in this field.

Combined Universal Tab Inserter (CUTI)

The Combined Universal Tab Inserter is Vacuumatic’s compact tab inserter system, enabling accurate tabbing and batching of sheeted piles with the minimum requirements of space and investment cost. Usually pedestal mounted, the unit can be interfaced directly to most printing presses, or triggered via a laser sensor attachment.

The CUTI is often supplied to commercial printers looking for greater accuracy in batching their printed products. This can result in minimization of waste sheets and improved productivity in subsequent finishing processes.


Vacuumatic’s new SMART 1 tab insertion system has been designed to offer tabbing as cost-effectively as possible on presses and sheeters that are equipped with their own programmable counting or sheet inspection system. Such machines can provide a 24v pulse signal to fire and cut the tab, meaning that there is no need for the Electronic Counter Control unit or sensors that are required to drive and control the VUTI tab insertion systems. SMART 1 is often supplied direct to press and sheeter manufacturers to be factory fitted, and sometimes as a replacement for old or worn tab insertion systems.

SMART 1 is a product for very specific applications, so please be sure to consult with Vacuumatic or your local distributor prior to placing an order.

Web Marking and Waste Control


The RTIS 2 offers unparalleled waste management control by remote firing adhesive marker labels onto the moving edge of web material, whenever an area or length of spoiled product needs to be isolated from good copy.

The RTIS 2 is easily operated via a pre-programmed control box. The box comes with six colored manual fire buttons, each producing a three character printed “reason of fault” code. The printed code will assist in minimising waste by differentiating between, and warning of, possible print or product faults. These areas may have to be checked or removed before sending on to an end user or subsequent finishing process.

The RTIS 2 can attach a label to the web at speeds of up to 600m/min with no physical contact and therefore no risk of damage to the web. The RTIS 2 can be operated manually via the control box or a hand held remote firing unit (infra-red/radio frequency). RTIS 2 can also be triggered automatically by an external device such as a sensor or camera inspection system.

Installing an RTIS 2 eliminates the dangerous and inaccurate practice of hand flagging, an increasingly hot topic during health and safety evaluations.
