Can you give context? Where did you find it? Can you show it in a sentence?

If i right understand it`s about some sort of vice, i about "jig" in this context, but meaning word " tapeless" is a big puzzle for me

Well it's clearly a specialized piece of engineering equipment. A "jig" is a device that holds a piece of work and guides the tool operating on it. "Tapeless" presumably means "without tape" (whatever that means!). And in this case the tapeless jig is the type of "chuck", which is a device that holds a tool.

I have no idea really, but the following video "ADJUSTABLE JIG FOR RESIZING TAPE" has a roll of tape in the initial image and "tape" in the title, so there may be some connection - or not...
