Some tips for using the carton sealer processes.

1. The selected carton is a machine carton, and the weight should not be too light. Generally, there is often a case of jamming when the carton sealing machine seals the empty carton. Because the weight of the carton is too light when it travels to the middle of the machine core, so the tape cannot be pushed forward.

2. The belt should not clamp the carton too tight. The belt tightens the carton to make the carton move forward better, but if the clip is too tight, the belt will leave a mark on the carton, which will have a great impact on the aesthetics of the carton.

3. You need to clean the carton sealer especially the part of the cutter. Beacuse the machine will leave residues of tape which then adhere to some dust and other substances. After a long time, it will greatly affect the sealing performance.
