Main Aspects of L-Clip Case Sealers

An L-clip tape machine can be advantageous for small to mid-sized manufacturing and processing operations looking for a seamless option for securing their products. It can be beneficial due to many reasons, including the following:


  • Speed: L-clip case sealers can operate at different speeds, depending on the model and manufacturer. On average, entry-level L-clip case sealers can achieve an average production rate between 40 to 50 cartons per minute (CPM).
  • Ease of Use: L-clip case sealers are designed to be easy to use and require minimal training to begin operating. In most machines, the operation will require only a slight push to access micro-controls in the machine and activate its sealing mechanism. Some may also come with touch panels and automatic tape dispensing.
  • Durability: Ruggedness and reliability are two important qualities in a case sealer. In this case, L-clip sealers are made from high-quality materials that enable them to run smoothly, even in the most demanding applications.
  • Maintenance: Just like any machine, some parts are susceptible to normal wear and tear and may require replacing from time to time. Regular maintenance is still vital to ensure case sealers continue functioning for up to 30 years.
  • Automation level: L-clip case sealers may be semi to fully automatic, depending on the model. The sealing functions are fully automated in semi-automatic and fully automatic machines; the only difference lies in their feeding mechanism, where the former requires manual feeding.
  • Safety features: All 3M and Tach It L-clip tape machines comply with strict safety standards, with all units being pre-inspected before shipping. Safety labels are available on key locations on the machine to ensure operational safety.
