The 3M-Matic? Case Sealer 88a features a side belt drive and upper and lower 3M? AccuGlide? 3 taping heads as well as an alternative outboard mount for the lower tape roll. This results in top and bottom taping of a huge variety of box types.
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. Dual masts include twin lead screws for stop relocation and stronger taping head stability.
The gear motors provide power to the laced side drive belts which run at 60 ft per minute. It can be quickly shut down using the centrally located emergency stop switch.
After setup, 3M-Matic? Case Sealer 88a continues to feed same size boxes at a rate of 24 boxes per minute. To change box configuration, simply readjust height and width to accommodate the new case size – changeover between boxes takes mere minutes.
The 3M-88a is a more minimal design shaped after the 3M-800a. This machine is a more lightweight and quiet design to be implemented in quiet workspaces or where the output is up to 24 cartons a minute.
