The Wexxar BEL 185, available through Thomas Conveyor & Equipment Co., is a semi-automatic, pressure-sensitive, random top and bottom case sealer.  Ideal for continuous, varying case size operations, it automatically sizes independently to each case with no manual adjustments needed.  This model allows one person to link case forming, case packing and case sealing of corrugated cases into a single operation.  It also converts to a fixed position sealer for uniform case sizes.

The BEL 185 offers quick, safe transitions from one case size to another, freeing the operator of time-consuming manual adjustments.  The engineered performance and unique safety provisions offer superior operator comfort and increased productivity, sealing up to 20 cases per minute.  Learn more below!
