Tape Drives – New and RefurbishedAvax offers tape drives in all formats

Avax has always been about tape.  Over the years various tape formats have come and gone until now there is only LTO (Linear Tape Open) being manufactured.

However, there is still a huge installed base of the now obsolete drives in use, and a lot of users that still need to be able to retrieve data in these formats.

Avax offers new LTO drives, but also all those old formats in units that have been refurbished and tested and come with a proper warranty.  We also offer new drives based on Compact Flash cards that are plug and play replacements for existing drives such as SLR, 8mm and 4mm.

The Avax range of high performance tape units are available in a wide range of speeds and capacities for use with systems and networks. Units are available in 4mm, 8mm, LTO, SLR and Digital Linear Tape (DLT) formats plus 1/2″ reel-to-reel, 3480, 3490 and 3490E .
