Case sealer and tape automation FAQs

What does a case sealer do?

A case sealer is a machine designed to efficiently and securely seal cardboard boxes or cases. It typically applies tape or hot melt adhesive to the top and bottom flaps of the boxes, ensuring a tight and secure closure.

How does a gummed paper tape machine work?

A gummed paper tape machine wets a water-activated adhesive on the back of the tape as it dispenses. The moistened tape forms a strong bond when applied to cartons, creating a secure and tamper-evident seal.

Many gummed paper tape machines can dispense different size lengths of the tape, making sealing a breeze, as you always have the right amount available at the touch of a button.

What does an automatic taping machine cost?

The cost of an automatic taping machine varies based on factors like its specifications, speed, and features. Entry-level models may start at a few thousand pounds, while high-speed or specialised systems can cost more.

However, while the initial investment might seem significant, these machines can often provide return on investment quickly. They do this by helping you reduce costs associated with sealing. This can include reducing the amount of tape or adhesive you use (and therefore the cost) through to helping you lower labour costs.

What is the difference between a manual and electronic gummed paper tape dispenser?

The main difference lies in the dispensing mechanism. A manual gummed paper tape dispenser requires manual activation to moisten and dispense the tape, while an electronic dispenser automates the process, offering greater efficiency and convenience in high-volume packaging operations.
