What is a Case Sealer?
A case sealer, also referred to as a box sealer or a tape machine, is a type of packaging equipment that is used to seal or tape a corrugated box shut.
Case sealers are commonly used in warehouses and distribution centers to package products for shipping. The case sealer typically operates by applying a strip of tape across the top and bottom flaps of the box, creating a secure seal that helps to prevent the contents of the box from spilling out during transport.
There are several different types of case sealers available, including top and bottom case sealers and side belt drive case sealers. The specific type of case sealer that is used will depend on the size and shape of the boxes being sealed, as well as the speed and volume of packaging required.
Case sealers are an essential type of equipment for automating your packaging process.
Semi-Automatic Vs. Automatic Case Sealers
Case sealers come in both semi-automatic and automatic styles.
With semi-automatic case sealers, an operator loads or fills the corrugated box and manually closes the top flaps and feeds the box through the sealer. The case sealer tapes the box closed using specialized carton sealing tape.
Fully automatic case sealers don't require an operator and perform all the functions including closing the box's top flaps, offering a more streamlined solution.
Uniform Vs. Random Case Sealers
Another key factor in choosing box taping equipment is whether you need a uniform or random case sealer.
Uniform case sealers are designed to seal boxes of a consistent size and shape. They are typically used in environments where the boxes being sealed are all the same size and shape, or where the boxes are within a narrow range of sizes and shapes. Uniform case sealers are often used in high-volume packaging operations where speed and efficiency are important.
Random case sealers, on the other hand, are designed to seal boxes of varying sizes and shapes. They are typically used in environments where the boxes being sealed are not all the same size and shape, or where the boxes may vary significantly in size and shape. Random case sealers are often used in lower-volume packaging operations where the variety of box sizes and shapes is greater.
Top & Bottom Case Sealers Vs. Side Belt Case Sealers
Top and bottom case sealers are designed to seal the top and bottom flaps of a cardboard box with adhesive tape. These machines typically have a conveyor belt that moves the box through the machine, and a set of rollers or belts that press the flaps of the box against a strip of tape. The tape is then applied across the flaps, creating a secure seal.
Side belt case sealers, on the other hand, are designed to seal the sides of a box rather than the top and bottom. These machines also have a conveyor belt that moves the box through the machine, but instead of rollers or belts, they have a set of side belts that hold the box in place while the tape is applied. The side belts are typically made of a flexible material, such as rubber, that can conform to the shape of the box and hold it securely in place.
