CBS-880 Band Sealer: All Your Questions Answered

Have you been looking for an affordable way to ramp up your packaging process and been eyeing our CBS-880 band sealer?  The CBS-880 is an incredibly effective machine to seal plastic bags.  In this blog post, we will be answering your questions about the CBS-880.  We hope these answers below will help you determine if the CBS-880 is right for your packaging application.  If you still have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us or one of our authorized distributors.

Question: How do I know if the CBS-880 is the right band sealer for me?

Our CBS-880 band sealer can seal flat bags, stand up pouches, gusseted pouches and much more.  While the CBS-880 can seal most bags in an incredibly efficient manner, remember there are some limitations.

  • Weight of the bag should be no heavier than 2.2-lbs.  If you are planning to seal a pretty heavy item, we have other band sealers that can handle the load
  • No liquids.  Remember, your bag is going to sit horizontally on the conveyor so any liquids will spill out.  Take a look at our vertical band sealers or our FRM-1120C tilting band sealer if you are planning on sealing liquids

You’re always welcome to send your bag samples over to us and we can seal some sample bags for you!

Question: Does the CBS-880 print an expiration date or a lot code?

The CBS-880 has embossing capabilities which creates a raised message on the seal line.  This can be customized to your message whether it be a company name, lot code or expiration date.  We also carry band sealers that can print via dry ink coding.  See the comparison chart below.

If you are looking to print using dry ink coding on your bag, reach out to us or one of our distributors to walk you through our various options.

Question: Is there a lot of set up required in order to use the CBS-880?

Some set up is required but it is pretty straightforward and easy.   We have a video below which shows you exactly how to set up your CBS-880 band sealer.

Question: Is there an instruction manual?

Why of course we do! You can download the manual here.

Question: What kind of maintenance is required?

The most common maintenance requirement is changing out the sealing and drive belts.  This can easily be done by watching our instructional video below

Question: Is technical support and service available?

Yes.  Most of our distributors are comfortable answering technical questions about our CBS-880 band sealer but you are always welcome to reach out to us directly at 818-718-8818 or via email at contact@sealersales.com

We’ve been selling band sealers for a long time so whatever question you have about the CBS-880 we will know the answer and how to fix the problem.

If you need a quick and cost effective repair of your band sealer, just box it up and ship it to one of our repair facilities.  Our experienced, manufacturer-trained, and certified technicians use genuine OEM replacement parts to ensure your band sealer is restored to its original factory operating specifications.

Question: How is the CBS-880 shipped?

We ship the CBS-880 via UPS or FedEx in a heavy-duty box which protects the band sealer during shipping.

When to Invest in a Pallet Wrapper

Palletizing shipments are designed to keep your product safe and secure when transporting goods from one warehouse to another.  Pallet stretch wrappers are machines designed to wrap pallets and eliminate the laborious task of hand wrapping.

When to Upgrade to a Pallet Wrapper

Hand wrapping can be time consuming and a tedious operation.  Stretch wrapping utilizing a pallet wrapper is easier and will reduce your film costs and provide labor savings.  We have found that even at 15 pallets a day, you may be able to justify the cost of a pallet wrapper.

Advantages of a Pallet Wrapper

  • Film savings
    • Pallet wrappers will stretch film accurately making sure you are using the right amount of stretch film.  In addition, purchasing machine stretch film vs. hand stretch film will provide significant cost savings as well
  • Labor costs savings
    • Utilizing a pallet wrapper to wrap pallets will not only result in film savings but the faster speed of a machine vs. hand wrapping will result in labor cost savings as well
  • Consistent and uniform application
    • A pallet wrapper will produce a clean professional product.  Pallet wrapping by hand can result in uneven quality depending on the operator.  Multiple operators, time of day, fatigue and other variables may result in different quality.  A stretch wrap machine eliminates those variables
  • Better Protection
    • Pallet wrappers are better able to protect pallets as they provide an even stretch force vs. hand wrapping

Cost Analysis: Questions to Ask to Determine WHEN to Invest in a Pallet Wrapper

  • What is your output?  Think about how many pallets you are wrapping on a weekly basis
  • How much are you spending on stretch film?
  • How long does it take to get a pallet wrapped and loaded on a truck?

We have a cost analysis calculator available for you.  Download our cost analysis spreadsheet which allows you to compare the cost of hand wrapping vs. stretch wrapping.  Please note this spreadsheet only calculates the film savings and not labor cost savings.

  • What are the weights of the pallets?  Min and max?

  • Does your warehouse have a forklift?  Do you need a loading ramp with your pallet wrapper?
