We have had conversations and found solutions for customers that had issues with getting tape on boxes to seal them in an orderly fashion and in an appropriate amount of time. Experiencing bottlenecks was a big issue for them to look at ways to ease this hassle.
One way to speed up production is to put an automatic case sealer at the end of your line. This equipment can seal both the top and the bottom of the box. There are many functions for flap folding and it can be used with many kinds of adhesives.
Case sealers can be adjusted for different sized boxes and the labor savings can pay for the machine quickly. Bottlenecks will be relieved while output goes up. The product will have a more professional appearance, and most importantly you will save money on materials.
Call your supplier to discuss moving to an automatic case sealer or give the experts at Shippers a call.
