This case sealer is a manually adjustable case sealer that folds the top flaps for sealing without the need for an operator. The twin gear motor drives power traction-grip drive belts on each side to center and stabilize cases up to 85 lbs. (38kg). This case sealer uses 2” (48mm) Scotch® box sealing tapes and seals up to 40 cases per minute.
Heavy-Duty and Adjustable Case Sealer
Our 3M-Matic™ Case Sealer 8000af With 3M™ AccuGlide™ 3 Taping Head is a case sealer that manually adjusts to multiple box sizes. It features a rugged 16-gauge welded steel frame and traction-grip belts for positive box conveying; the side belt drives can be set to a higher position to provide stability for taller boxes. The dual masts and dual crossbars provide taping head stability for the 3M™AccuGlide™ 3 Taping Heads, which offer low impact sealing to protect cases. This carton sealer uses 2” (48mm) tape to seal up to 40 uniform boxes per minute: case lengths of 6-30” (150-762mm), widths of 5.75-21.5” (146-546mm) and heights of 4.75-24.5” (120-622mm). The twin gear motor drives allow for high volume and heavy duty sealing applications, managing cases weighing up to 85 lbs. (38kg). The machine handles top flap folding prior to taping, eliminating the need for an operator to be constantly present.
The 3M AccuGlide 3 Taping Process
A regular slotted container (RSC) is placed on the conveyor and pushed into the drive belts, which convey the box into the 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, either in an upper and lower configuration to tape top and bottom or mounted left and right to seal cases lying on their sides.
Taping Heads Provide Low Impact Sealing
Designed to apply a "C" clip of Scotch® box sealing tape, the 3M™ AccuGlide™ 3 Taping Heads seal the top and bottom center seams. With a flowing, curvilinear form for low impact and consistent application, 3M™ AccuGlide™ Taping Heads help protect the boxes while providing greater case throughput. Dual masts with dual crossbars provide stronger taping head stability.
