The Difference Between a Case Erector and a Case Sealer

There’s a lot of confusion in manufacturing about the different packaging machines and exactly what they do. Two of the most common types of packaging machines are case erectors and case sealers. Each of these machines performs very different jobs and works best when used together to achieve a total packaging solution. In this post, we’ll go over the differences between case erectors and case sealers and how Econocorp brings the best of both technologies into our high-quality, high-production packaging machines.

Case Erectors

Case erectors simply take a flat piece of cardboard and build it up into a carton that is ready to be filled with product. Case erectors can be manually fed or use an automatic feed function where dozens of pieces of cardboard can be loaded at once and pulled into the erector for construction. Case erectors are great because they ensure that every single one of your cartons is built the same, giving your brand consistency and an image of professionalism.

Case Sealers

Case sealers are a pretty straightforward concept as wellthey simply seal the seams of erected cartons together. Sealers are used during the erection process and after loading in the product to ensure a closed and secure end product is ready for shipping. Case sealers can either tuck carton ends or seal them with hot glue. Many carton erecting machines include sealers at the beginning and end of their feeds, but sealers can also be standalone units. Check out our Mini Monoseal or Twinseal for examples of high-quality standalone sealing machines.
