For today’s companies agility isn’t a choice – it’s a necessity.  You work hard to ensure that your operations are efficient and flexible and this includes end-of-line packaging.

Production must stay on schedule and the end of your production line is no place for a bottleneck.

However, end-of-the-line packaging processes pose a special challenge as you have to strike a delicate balance to achieve smooth operations: any increase in throughput needs to work in harmony with customer demands for packaging of various sizes.

The Advanced Technology Case Sealer Solution

Choosing a case sealer with rock-solid dependability can make all the difference, helping your packaging system to work seamlessly while adjusting on the fly for boxes of varying height and width.

With that in mind, it makes sense that more and more companies are turning to an Advanced Technology Case Sealer, like 3M-Matic™ Random Case Sealer 7000r Pro, in order to solve their end-of-the-line packaging conundrum.
