Case Sealer

CS15

Pearson’s CS15 Case Sealers handles a wide-range of RSC and CSSC case sizes. Featuring a compact size and continuous motion, the CS15 top seals at speeds of 15 to 29 cases per minute depending on case length. A convenient bypass option eliminates the need for additional conveying when pre-sealed boxes or HSCs are introduced into the line. Advanced features such as high-visibility machine status lighting, non-contact interlocks, CAT-3 Safety Circuits and an easily accessible grace port are standard on the machine.

Key Features

  • Case Squareness Protection

    Spring loaded synchronous compensating side belts and squaring wheels ensure cases remain square throughout the closing and sealing process.

  • Fast Changeover

    The machine design and accompanying changeover guide support intuitive and tool-less changeover to maximize machine uptime. Trained technicians can complete a changeover in under 2min.

  • Bypass Option for Pre-Sealed Boxes or Without Tops

    No need to build by-pass conveyors when running cases not requiring sealing.

  • Safety Redundancy with CAT 3

    Dual channel safety circuit maintains integrity of safety features in case of single component failure.

  • Highly Reliable Non-Contact Interlocks

    Eliminates misalignment of guard door interlocks which prevents problems common to keyed interlocks.

  • High-Visibility Machine Status

    A standard four-light LED beacon and multi-color interior machine lighting provides high-visibility of machine status.

  • Easily Accessible Grace Port

    Grace ports provide convenient communication access and 110V convenience outlet at the outside of the machine’s electrical cabinet.

Upgrade Options

Additional Tape Head

A spare tape head allows quicker replacement of tape by exchanging the entire head and refilling the empty one while the machine is back up and running.

Hand Pack Station

An ergonomically-designed, highly-configurable hand pack station that can be customized for various plant layouts and output requirements.

HMI

Human Machine Interface allows operators to operate, monitor and collect data using a graphical screen in place of push buttons.

Oversized and Undersized Case Support

This machine can be modified to operate outside of standard specifications to accommodate smaller or larger dimension products and cases. Specific adjustments require engineering review to determine limitations and potential performance trade-offs such as machine speed or larger machine footprint.

Plant Level Ethernet Connection

A Network Address Translation device allows specific Ethernet network configurations across multiple machines in the plant network and offers the ability for remote support through VPN connections.

Portability

Easily move or reposition a machine on the production floor with the portability package, which provides locking casters and stabilizing jackscrew assemblies. Depending on machine model, it can also include quick disconnects for air lines and electrical lines.

Tape Sensing

Sensors detect fail-to apply, fail-to-cut and low tape situation.

CS15-T Case Sealer

Featuring a compact size and continuous motion, the CS15 top seals at speeds of 15 to 29 cases per minute depending on case length. A convenient bypass option eliminates the need for additional conveying when pre-sealed boxes or HSCs are introduced into the line.

Simple Erect, Pack & Seal System – Cartons of Cupcakes

In this system, a slow-speed case erector supplies erected RSCs, into which the small, multi-axis robot maneuvers the cartons before they convey to the CS15 Case Sealer for closing.

What tape width can be run on the machine?

For optimal performance, two and three-inch tape is recommended.

What tape mil thickness is required?

For optimal performance, we recommend 2.5 mil to 3.2 mil. If you want to run other mil thicknesses, please allow Pearson engineering to review your application.

Does case hand matter?

No. Case hand does not matter in the configuration of a box sealer.

What is the lead time? When does it start?

Standard lead time is 9-10 weeks (+1-2 weeks for stainless option). Standard lead times do not account for non-standard options. These are estimates, your confirmed lead time will be provided once the project is being scheduled with project management. You may also request a specific date, which we’ll confirm before you place the order. Lead times start when the PO is accepted.

What HMI is standard?

Pearson standardizes on Allen Bradley, PanelView1000+. Our user-centric interface is built on the Rockwell platform and cannot be applied to other HMI brands.

What information do I need to provide for a quote?

If a quick, high-level budgetary quote is all you need, we are happy to provide you with the base machine rate. However, the more information you provide us about your particular application, the more accurately we can quote you. It also enables us to identify potential challenges and discuss how we can overcome them. If you are interested in a detailed quote, expect our sales managers to discuss the following questions with you.

  • Case rates
  • Case Style (RSC, HSC, Bliss, FOL, etc..)
  • Case dimensions (LxWxD, Open Depth and KDW, Drawings are preferred)
  • Tape or glue closure
  • Construction type (mild steel, stainless steel, stainless with NEMA4X low-pressure washdown)
  • Environment of room where equipment will be placed – Hot, cold, wet, temp
  • Duty cycle (ie. 3 shifts per day 5 days per week)
  • Voltage requirement
  • Product inside the cases (pictures preferred)
  • Estimated full case weight
  • Wish list for upgrade options
  • Special requirements
  • Are there specifications that need to be reviewed?

What can I expect after I request a quote?

If all you need is a high-level budgetary quote, we will provide you base-level machine pricing immediately. If you are looking for a more detailed quote, we will reach out to you within 24 business hours to discuss your application and collect all the necessary information. Once we collected the information, expect a detailed quote within 2-4 business days (unless your application requires non-standard options). For a firm quote, we generally like to review a sample of your case(s)/partitions/bags. This greatly reduces the risk of missing any potential obstacles and ensures that you receive not only the most accurate quote but also a high-performing machine. If your request requires a specifications response, please allow 7-10 working days for a quote turnaround.

Why do you need case samples for a firm quote? What if I don't have any?

Case samples allow us to help you avoid unforeseen challenges, determine the need for special options or recommend a different machine model better suited for your application. In nearly 65% of all projects, case sample reviews prevent costly mistakes, inferior performance and extended lead times. Here is a small sample of unwanted problems case reviews uncovered and averted:

  • Samples did not match drawings, which drove a change to the proposal
  • Unidentified shied flaps
  • Case hand was not identified on drawings or different
  • Product fit too tight or too loose into the case
  • The case’s manufacturer’s joint location or style interfered with the product being loaded
  • Corrugate quality issues interfering with proper machine performance
  • Bag thickness/construction/size did not match the requirements
  • Flap folding sequences/glue patterns requiring special attention
  • Head space in cases requiring special options or over pack interfering with proper sealing

Although we’d like to review case samples before we provide a firm quote, we understand that this is not always possible. In that case, we will provide a quote based on the information and drawings you provided.

What are the limitations of low-pressure washdown?

Low-pressure washdown is limited to 4.3 psi at a distance of 10 feet. It does not protect against direct hard spray or the use of caustic fluids.
