Highlighting our Custom Band Sealer with 30mm Seal Width

feb2017_blogheader

While we stock many different models of heat sealers, we know that the need arises for some custom machines.  Kernel Season’s approached us about a band sealer with a wide seal.  Our stock band sealers offer  8mm (.31″), 15mm (.59″), or 20mm (.78″) seal widths but Kernel Season’s wanted a wider seal.  Working with Kernel Season’s request, we were able to special manufacture a band sealer with a 30mm (1.18″) seal width.  This width is perfect for bags with a hang hole as the band sealer will seal below and above the hang hole preventing any leakage.

We carry the largest stock of band sealers, but if you do not find what you are looking for, don’t fret as we can help you with custom options.  Our expertise and customer service team are second to none.

While in college, Kernel Season’s founder Brian made popcorn—night after night. It was fluffy, healthy and fast to make… but it always tasted the same. One evening, a thought popped into his head: there has to be a way to shake up the flavor of his favorite snack. Brian started creating fun and bold spice mixtures to toss into his popcorn.  After college, Brian took Kernel Season’s to the next level by teaming up with experienced flavor experts to perfect his recipes.  Kernel Season’s is now America’s number one brand of popcorn seasoning.  It is available in over 15,000 stores nationwide including Walmart, Kroger, Target, and Safeway.

Come by and visit our booth (E-8950).  We will be showing our latest equipment including the FRM-1010 band sealer.  If you’re new to packaging, don’t worry!  Come by and chat.  Let us know what you’re planning to package and we can point you in the right direction.  Our equipment caters directly to small and medium sized business like yours and we have many years of experience

“Pouch-ization” of the world

We recommend taking a look at Packaging Digest’s recent article, “The ‘pouch-ization’ of the world,” citing that global demand for flexible plastic pouches is expected to rise 6.2% annually to $37.3 billion in 2018.  The article states that the U.S. flexible plastic pouch (i.e. stand up pouches, foil gusseted bags, flat pouches, etc) growth is being driven primarily due to the U.S. consumer demanding increasing convenience and portability of product.  Pouches also tend to be smaller and thinner than glass, paper and metal packaging and will use 60% less plastic and be 23% lighter.  We couldn’t agree with Packaging Digest more!  Over the past few years, we have seen an incredible demand for flexible packaging, particularly  in the form of stand up pouches.  Stand up pouches maximize shelf space over traditional boxes and cartons and bottles but also minimize costs of freight and warehousing since these pouches ship flat.

Looking for a custom pouch?  If your customer is considering switching to a flexible packaging product, Sealer Sales can help you determine the best type of packaging that will work for your customer.  E-mail us at custom@sealersales.com for a survey which will help us determine which type of pouch will work best for your customer.  Feel to also browse our stock bags especially if your customer is not ready to go the custom route.  For a start-up business, we carry a variety of stock stand up pouches in smaller quantities (250pcs – 1,000pcs) in a variety of sizes and colors allowing your business to still provide unique packaging that stands up w/o the set up costs of custom pouches.
