With continued use, packaging equipment parts will inevitably 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 routine 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 number of operational hours. Replacing blades when they become dull ensures you always get a nice, clean cut on every tape application. Additionally, wiping down blades daily with a clean rag removes any glue or tape that might have adhered to the blade during operation. Applying oil to the blade guard to lubricate the blade also keeps the adhesive from sticking to it.
To ensure your box is tracking evenly through your case sealer, replace belts consistently. Over time, the constant movement and friction of the belts can lead to wear and tear creating tension loss which can result in inadequate selling, misalignment, or jams. Inspect and adjust belts every 1 – 3 weeks depending on usage hours. Replacing worn belts before they break will save time and money in the long run.
For enhanced tape application, maintain your tape heads and keep spare parts on hand. Proper spring tension and clean rollers will help reduce the chance of equipment malfunction. Our equipment specialists have developed a variety of spare parts kits that include high-wear parts and components that will help to eliminate costly downtime.
We also offer a variety of other case sealer parts, such as wheels, fasteners, bearings, and casters to keep your box tapers running.
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. It is also important to avoid any moisture or condensation buildup on components to reduce corrosion damage to equipment. Replacing work and damaged parts when necessary as faulty equipment can cause injury to operators.
To maximize the lifespan of your case sealer, regular inspection, cleaning, lubrication, and replacement of worn parts are essential. Using high-quality sealing materials and providing proper training ensures optimal performance and reduces downtime.
