The BOW Model 632 provides an instrumentation tape cleaner with precision wind for 1 inch and 2 inch NAB and 1/2-inch NAB or IBM reels. The 632 was designed to handle reel sizes from 10.5 inches to 16 inches in diameter. With the industries' latest electronics and tape path available, the Model 632 is the solution to your tape conditioning needs. Along with the optional optical inspector (800 option), the user can establish a fail criteria to weed out bad tapes and save valuable reusable tapes. This information can also be sent to a printer (800/P option), located in the base of the unit, giving the user a hard copy of the results.

The BOW Model 632 is also available with an optional factory upgrade to the BOW Model 6320 Certifier unit. This unit incorporates the tape path required for the later addition of certification electronics and hardware. This would allow the customer to upgrade as funds become available.

The 632 is available in both our standard cabinet, as shown, or ready for rack mounting to a 19 inch EIA rack.

For the best magnetic tape winder/packer/cleaner for your valuable tapes, the BOW Model 632 is the most reliable, gentle handling, and best value in the industry.
