Advanced Packaging Solutions | Machinery

Integrating packaging machines into your facilities packaging department can help alleviate labor constraints, reduce mistakes, and increase the speed at which packages are filled, wrapped, and shipped

Carton Sealers

Basics of Carton Sealer


From fully manual carton sealers to fully automated ones, CS Packaging has a wide variety of Carton sealers to fit the needs of your business. 


Basics of Carton Sealer: 
  • - Tape machine that tapes either the bottom of the box, the top, or both

  • - These machines can be purchased as manual or automatic, and the features depend on the level of customization needed. Some are for very basic applications, (such as the same carton going through repeatedly), while some use fully automatic and pneumatic systems to integrate into automated packaging lines for all different box sizes


Case Erectors

Case Erector


Case Erectors (also called Carton Erectors) improve efficiency across the board. In the time it takes a worker to fold and tape one box, these machines can have several boxes produced and ready to be filled. 


Basics of Case Erector: 
  • - Case Erectors (also called Carton Erectors) use standard rolls of cardboard to build any quantity of boxes that your company may need. More advanced models also include the ability to tape the bottom of the box in order to increase the structural integrity throughout the packaging process.

  • - These machines are customizable based on the businesses’ needs and come in all different types and sizes depending on the box type and size


Stretch Film Machines

Stretch Film Machine

Stretch film machines use a minimal amount of stretch film to wrap the load by reducing the number of times each pallet needs to be wrapped. These machines can stretch the film up to 300% giving a much higher yield than manual operator stretching. 


Stretch Film Machine Basics:
  • - Stretch film machines wrap pallets with stretch film to retain the load and ensure it arrives at its destination safely. 

  • - These machines can be fully automatic or semi-automatic, and come in all different types depending on the size and needs of the business.

  • - These machines greatly reduce the amount of packaging material required when shipping goods to a distribution center, OEM, or other business.

Shrink Film Machines


Shrink film machines (also known as shrink wrapping machines) use a precise amount of film for each product or pallet. As opposed to a human operator with a large roll of shrink wrap and a heat gun, integrating these machines greatly reduces the amount of plastic wrap needed to secure your products. 


Shrink Film Machines Basics: 
  • Shrink Film Machines, as denoted by the name, wrap items, both in bulk and individually, in shrink film, giving a tight seal for:
    • - Safe shipping

    • - Holding groups of items together

    • - Food safety 

    • - Theft protection 

    • - And much more

Strapping and Banding Machines

Strapping and Banding Machines

Strapping and Band machines ensure as little material is wasted as possible as they give a perfect seal without fumbling with manual applications. Rarely, if ever do these machines require re-applying the seal, which cuts down on wasted material and time. 

Common types of these machines include an “L-bar sealer”, which is a manual style machine where the operator presses the film down onto the item; or a shrink tunnel, which is an automated-style system where the items go through a heated tunnel from a conveyor system


Basics of Strapping and Banding Machines:
  • - Stapping and banding machines look to alleviate that time by offering a quicker solution when strapping/binding items together is needed

  • - These machines use polypropylene straps to bind large quantities of goods together so they stay together in transit and are easy to count

  • - These machines can be manual (operator wraps strapping around the item and waits for the machine to seal) or automatic (places items into machine and machine both wraps the strap + seals) with the highest speed machines running at speeds of up to 65 straps per minute.

Automated Poly Bagging Systems

Strapping and Banding Machines

Autobagger machines help reduce the amount of time that employees need to spend filling and labeling product bags. These machines can print directly onto the polybag so no label is needed and also give a perfect seal (while allowing air to escape) to reduce the amount of packaging waste at the end of the line.  


Basics of Automated Poly Bagging Systems:
  • - An Automated poly bagging system is a one-size-fits-all type of machine. They open the polybag or poly mailer, seal the mailer around the item, and some can even print a label directly onto the bag. 

  • - These machines can be manual (operator drops item into the bag then presses a button to initiate seal) or automatic (a conveyor or feeder system drops items into the bagger with no operator needed) depending on the need of the business.
