CS30RT

Pearson’s CS30-RT Random Case Sealer offers top and bottom sealing capabilities at high speeds of up to 30 cases per minute. Every case that is introduced into the machine is being measured in height and width to automatically position the folding and sealing mechanism. 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, an easily accessible grace port and an auxiliary operator station are standard on the machine.

Key Features

  • Random Case Size Infeed

    Every case that is introduced into the machine is being measured in height and width to automatically position the folding and sealing mechanism. Pre-programming of case sizes is not necessary but available for special circumstances.

  • Higher Speed, Less Maintenance, Reduced Air Consumption

    Servo-controlled design improves versatility, increases component longevity and reduces expensive air consumption by replacing air cylinders.

  • Positive Case Transport

    Dual-zone chain drive eliminates necessity to reposition drive mechanism for various case sizes for reduced wear and maintenance.

  • Top and Bottom Sealing

    Machine is capable of top and/or bottom case sealing.

  • Optimal Case Infeed Gaps

    A built-in metering stop creates gaps between cases without the need to adjust infeed conveyor speed for each case.

  • Detect Tape Related Errors

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

  • 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.

  • Convenient Dual Access to Machine

    An auxiliary operator station enables machine control on both sides of the conveyor.

  • Remote Access Capability

    Allows Pearson’s support team on-demand access to the equipment’s PLC and HMI through a secure VPN connection via an eWON router (ISECOM STAR and ISO27001 certified) to support emergency troubleshooting and reduce on-site visits.

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.

Air-Conditioner

Air conditioning provides cooling when ambient temperature becomes too hot or the contents of the electrical enclosure generate heat that risk failure to components.

Bottom Tape

Bottom tape seal can be combined with the standard top tape seal. When cases arrive at the machine the bottom flaps must be closed.

Low Temperature Environment

Electrical enclosures located in cold and humid environments maintain better performance and longevity with the addition of this heater and drier package.

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.

CS30-RT Case Sealer

Pearson’s CS30-RT Random Case Sealer offers top and bottom sealing capabilities at high speeds of up to 30 cases per minute. Every case that is introduced into the machine is being measured in height and width to automatically position the folding and sealing mechanism.

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 12-14 weeks (+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.
