Types of Case Tapers

Case Tapers, commonly known as Case Sealing Machine or Carton Sealing Machine, are packaging machines for folding and sealing the top lids of your packed cartons. After the packaging process, these machines provide a reliable and efficient way to seal cases. Whether you’re packing a variety of box sizes or a single standard box, there are case tapers that fit all needs.

Case Tapers provide cost-effective and consistent box sealing technology, allowing you to control the amount of tape used and the time spent sealing a box. To hand seal a box, each operator uses a different amount of tape – tab lengths, additional passes, double strips, etc. The time it takes to open a box, seal the bottom, fill the box with product and void-fill, and top seal can vary from box to box. Case sealers have a tape usage range of 2.25”-2.5” and can seal 10-15 cases per minute using a uniform machine.

Case Tapers are available in both automatic and semi-automatic formats. They do away with the need to use messy hand-held tape guns.
