How to Maintain a Case Sealer

With continued use, it’s inevitable that packaging equipment parts will begin to wear and eventually stop working. Regular preventative maintenance and the use of quality parts are vital to the operation of your case sealer. Maintain peak performance of your case sealer with regular inspection of these key items.


A clean cut on your tape reduces tension and prevents tape breakage. Inspect and clean blades weekly or more depending on the amount of operational hours. Replacing blades when they become dull ensures you’re always getting a nice, clean cut on every tape application.


To ensure your box is tracking evenly through your case sealer, replace belts on a consistent basis. Inspect and adjust belts every 1 – 3 weeks depending on usage hours. Replacing worn belts before they break will save you time and money in the long run.

Spare Parts Kits

For enhanced tape application, maintain your tape heads and keep parts on hand. Proper spring tension and clean rollers will help reduce the chance of equipment malfunction. Our specialists have developed a variety of spare parts kits that are made up of high wear parts and components that will help to eliminate costly downtime.

Safety First

Never attempt to remove dirt, dust, and debris from the equipment with compressed air. This could blow the debris into the sliding, rotating and pivoting mechanics causing potential damage to the equipment.

Be careful while cleaning equipment to avoid any moisture or condensation to build up on components. This could result in corrosion damage to the equipment.

Always replace worn and damaged parts when necessary. Faulty equipment can cause injury to operators.
