3M-Matic™ Case Sealer 800af with 3M™ AccuGlide™ 3 Taping Head seals both top and bottom center seams of regular slotted containers without the need for an operator. It automatically folds the top flaps and applies a "C" clip of Scotch® box sealing tape to the top and bottom of the box — at speeds of up to 40 uniform cases per minute.
Case Sealer Features Side Belt Stabilization and Auto Flap Folding
Located on each side of the 3M-Matic™ Case Sealer 800af, traction-grip drive belts center and stabilize boxes for consistently accurate taping. Flaps are automatically folded and sealed at the top and bottom center seams with a “C” clip of Scotch® box sealing tape. Designed for use with 1.5"-2" (36-48mm) Scotch® Box Sealing Tapes.
The advantages of the 3M-Matic™ Case Sealer 800af with 3M™ AccuGlide™ 3 Taping Head can be leveraged across many industries, including:
Energy Savings Option
The Energy Saving Control Button is located on the column below the Emergency Stop Button on the Operator side of the 3M-Matic™ Case Sealer 800af. Pressing the lighted Energy Saving Control Button engages/disengages this feature. When engaged, the drive belts will stop if there is not a continuous flow of boxes through the machine. Inserting a box will re-start the machine.
Height and Width Adjustable
3M-Matic™ Case Sealer 800af features dual side belt drives and upper and lower 3M™ AccuGlide™ 3 taping heads as well as an alternative outboard mount for the lower tape roll. A height adjustment crank raises or lowers the taping head to adjust to box height and compression rollers position the top flaps of each box for precise sealing.
Twin gearmotors provide power to the dual side drive belts which run at 78 feet per minute. It can be quickly shut down using the centrally located emergency stop switch.
After setup, 3M-Matic™ Case Sealer 800af continues to feed uniform boxes until a different size box must be fed. Then simply adjust the height and width to accommodate new size. An integrated box gate (indexer) with adjustable pressure and height helps to separate boxes from a flooded infeed conveyor while the safety-interlocked hinged access doors with steel screen allow easy viewing of case flow.
Taping Heads Achieve Consistent Low Impact Sealing
Designed to apply a "C" clip of 2" Scotch™ box sealing tape, the 3M™ AccuGlide™ 3 Taping Heads seal the top and bottom center seams at speeds of up to 28 cases per minute. With a flowing, curvilinear form for low impact and consistent application, AccuGlide™ tape heads help protect the boxes while providing greater case throughput. Dual masts include twin lead screws for stop relocation and dual crossbars for stronger taping head stability.
3M™ AccuGlide™ 3 Taping Process
A regular slotted container is placed on the conveyor and pushed onto the drive belts of a 3M-Matic™ Case Sealer, which convey the box into the 3M™ AccuGlide™ 3 Taping Head. The 3M™ AccuGlide™ 3 Taping Head applies Scotch® pressure sensitive film box sealing tape at the leading end of the box continuing along the center seam to the trailing end. This is called a "C" clip application. The taping head cuts the tape as it is being applied. After the box is securely sealed, it exits the case sealer. Taping heads usually function in pairs to tape two seams of a case. When they tape the top and bottom, taping heads are mounted in an upper and lower configuration. Taping heads can also be mounted for sealing a case lying on its side.
