When applying adhesive to a tape cartridge reel hub, such as the IBM 3850 Data Cartridge, it is required that the thickness of the adhesive film and the area of the hub that the film covers be carefully controlled. This can be accomplished by the use of a smoothing roller of proper design. The roller shown in the figure assures that the film thickness is the dimension desired and that the adhesive is constrained to that area of the hub which has been specified.
