What Are the Different Types of Case Sealers?
There are four main types of case sealers, carton tapers, and automatic box-taping machines:
- Semi-Automatic Uniform Case Sealers
Semi-automatic uniform case sealing machines work with standard-sized boxes and seal them from top to bottom. However, operators are needed to fold the box flaps and feed the cases to the unit.
- Fully Automatic Uniform Case Sealers
Unlike semi-automatic case sealers, an automatic box-taping machine takes care of the flap folding and introduces cases to the equipment. This eliminates the need for an operator to be constantly present. Once set to a specific width and height, it automatically folds top flaps and closes boxes from top to bottom.
Fully automatic uniform case sealers can be an excellent fit for facilities that regularly process high volumes of same-sized cases.
- Semi-Automatic Random Case Sealers
This case sealing machine type requires an operator to fold the top flaps and feed the boxes into the equipment. However, unlike semi-automatic uniform case sealers, random case sealing machines can adapt to any case height and width without requiring manual adjustments.
- Fully Automatic Random Case Sealers
Facilities handling high-volume, varied outputs can benefit from integrating a fully automatic random case sealer into their packaging line. This case sealer type eliminates manual top flap folding and setups to run random-sized boxes.
Can Case Sealers Be Integrated With Other Packaging Equipment?
Hughes Enterprises offers case sealing machines that can operate as a standalone case sealer or as part of an existing packaging line. They carry a versatile, modular design, allowing for effortless integration into various packaging systems.
What Types of Boxes Can a Case Sealer Seal?
Case sealers can close corrugated boxes and are commonly used for sealing regular slotted containers (RSC). In this box style, the inner flaps are the same length, and the two outer flaps meet at the center of the case when it is closed.
Case sealing machines can also work with half-slotted containers, straight tuck or reverse tuck end boxes, and five-panel folds, among many others.
