20 years ago, candle manufacturers in China manually produced tabbed wicks. They tightened the cotton wick and soaked it in hot wax repeatedly to make it rigid, then they measured the wick length with a ruler and cut it into pieces, and finally they inserted the waxed wick pieces into the collars of wick tabs and fastened them together with pliers. Now this tiring repetitive job is done by the state of art wick waxing machine and wick tabbing machine. The wick waxing machine is automatic and fast. It produces round wicks exactly in the diameter required by the candle manufacturers. The wick tabbing machine a industrial robot for special purpose. The operator sets the wick length and production speed, and the machine inserts the waxed wick into the collar of a wick tab, fastens the collar around the wick and then cuts the wick off to produce a tabbed wick. It can produce 60 tabbed wicks in one minute. Amazing, isn't it?
