The Magnum 4500 SD-R is a semi-automatic side belt drive case sealer designed to provide accurate, consistent tape application to random width, height, and length cases.  The Magnum 4500 SD-R features dual side belt drives that automatically adjust to handle cases from 5” to 24” wide.  The top tape head lift assembly automatically repositions according to the case height for cases from 5” to 24” tall.  Cases from 5” long to unlimited length are smoothly transported on a series of chromed steel rollers capable of handling packages up to 75 pounds.  The system is designed to operate at up to 15 cases per minute depending on package dimensions.

The Magnum 4500 SD-R is equipped with a top and bottom Magnum 200 series tape head and will accept any 2-inch case tape, providing optimum case sealing to the top and bottom of the case. An optional 3” tape head is available.  Highlight Magnum tape heads are engineered to be the heaviest duty and most reliable tape heads in the industry.  The user-friendly design allows for easy tape threading, fewer moving parts for minimal maintenance, and simple built-in adjustability for accommodating virtually any case type.

The dual side belt drives with individual gear motors deliver positive control and heavy duty performance.  PLC controls with two taping program modes improve reliability and speed.  Random mode 1 is for semi-uniform cases to increase throughput when running larger quantities of cases with similar heights.  Mode 1 maintains the top tape head assembly at the same relative height as the previous case cycle.  Random mode 2 is for complete random case operation, returning the top tape frame to the maximum open position after each cycle.

The Magnum 4500 SD-R comes standard with chromed steel conveyor rollers and smooth running precision plastic bearings for easy case movement and long life.  Height-adjustable legs from 27 inches to 35 inches are standard with locking casters are included.  Optional 18” long x 28” wide entry and exit conveyors are available.
