RE: The tariff classification of the Lantech CS-2000 Case Erector and CS-300 Case Sealing System from Canada.

Dear Mr. Kavanaugh:

In your letter dated January 24, 2006, on behalf of Premier Tech Technologies Ltd., you requested a tariff classification ruling. You submitted literature with your request.

The articles in question are 2 models of packaging machines, the CS-2000 Case Erector and the CS-300 Case Sealing System. In operation, the CS-2000 Case Erector has case blanks placed on the belt driven, walk-in magazine. The CS-2000’s hinged pick-up frame extends to pick up a blank, firmly gripping two panel sides. The pick-up frame then retracts, bending 90 degrees at the hinge to open the case. After the case is opened, the pick-up frame remains stationary and continues to hold the case securely as both minor flaps and then major flaps are folded. Once these flaps are folded, these flap folders become a slider plate on which the formed case is pushed into exit drive. The case is then moved into the exit drive where it is taped on the bottom. The CS-300 Case Sealing System seals the flaps shut in the packaging operation.

The applicable subheading for the Lantech CS-2000 Case Erector will be 8441.30.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for other machinery for making up paper pulp, paper or paperboard, including cutting machines of all kinds, and parts thereof: machines for making cartons, boxes, cases, tubes, drums or similar containers, other than by molding. The rate of duty will be free.

The applicable subheading for the Lantech CS-300 Case Sealing System will be 8422.30.9190, HTS, which provides for other machinery for filling, closing, sealing, capsuling or labeling boxes, bags or similar containers: other. The rate of duty will be free.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist Patrick Wholey at 646-733-3013.
