3 – Two guides push the outer flaps down, closing the lid.
4 – The box continues to the tape sealer, the handover completed with a metal guide keeping the lid closed, before receiving a layer of tape across the seam.
5 – While tape is dispensed, rollers simultaneously apply pressure to the taped seam, creating a strong seal.
