Case Sealer Savings Calculator

Are you still taping boxes by hand? 

With a price starting around $2,900, a case sealer provides excellent entry-level automation for your packaging. The rule of thumb is, if you tape more than 1 box per minute by hand, you would benefit from a case sealer. A case sealer’s biggest perk isn’t that it uses less tape (though it does use less), but how quickly it will tape your boxes. Your employees that tapes boxes will have 50% more time to work on other tasks and you'll experience up to 30% savings in tape costs.

Use the calculator to see how much you could save by investing in a case sealer and letting your employees work on other tasks.
