**03/02/20 Update:  Natural Products Expo West has been postponed until further notice given the COVID-19 situation.  You can read more here.**

We will be exhibiting at the upcoming Natural Products Expo West March 5-7, 2020 at the Anaheim Convention Center.  We are the sealing experts so stop by our booth #9301 and see the sealers we recommend for your packaging needs.

We can offer both flexible packaging as well as heat sealing equipment for your packaging needs.  We have a variety of flexible packaging options available – remember that foil bags will have the best barrier for preventing oxidation.

  • Stand up pouches are our most popular bag; these bags have a bottom gusset which can allow the pouches to stand upright.  Our stand up pouches have a resealable zipper allowing your customer to reseal the bag once opened.  We have an incredible selection available.
  • Foil gusseted bags are popular for the coffee industry and will stand upright when filled.  The bags have side gussets which can expand allowing you to package larger items.
  • Enjoy the best of both worlds with our new square bottom gusseted bags. Now you can get the advantages of a traditional bag along with those of a stand-up pouch. Our square bottom gusseted bags allow even the lowest density product to sit narrow and sturdy on the shelves without ever worrying about tipping over.
  • If simple and inexpensive is what you are looking for, then look no further.  Flat pouches also known as pillow packs are widely used in coffee and food industry.

Once the pouch has been selected, the pouches must then be filled with your product and heat sealed to prevent the bags from being tampered with.  To seal your bags, we offer a variety of heat sealing equipment that can meet your needs.  Whether you are just starting your production and looking for basic and affordable units or faster production volumes with the option to print a date code or expiration date on the seal line.

Remember that if you choose a gusseted bag, a single element sealer such as your typical hand impulse sealer cannot properly seal through all four layers of the gusseted bag.  Do not use a hand or foot or automatic sealer, not even a 5mm sealer. We recommend using a direct heat (constant heat) type of sealer.  Direct heat sealers will maintain constant heat in both jaws.

WNS-200D New Product

With its sleek and compact design, the WNS-200D is great for smaller work spaces.   Our WNS-200D is equipped with a digital timer which creates a consistent and reliable seal each time –  the sealing arm is easily activated and will not result in operator fatigue.

If you already have your bags and need a heat sealer option, we can test your bags on our sealers and send the samples back to you along with a video demo.  Just contact us!

Primer on Shrink Wrapping

March2017_Blog-Header_800

Our latest blog post is a quick primer on shrink wrapping and the full line of equipment Sealer Sales offers for shrink wrapping.

Shrink wrapping is an ideal solution for many types of products in a whole host of industries.  Shrink wrapping provides your package with a crystal clear tamper proof package while protecting your product from moisture and dust.

Shrink wrapping a product

  • Provides a protective barrier from dust, moisture, fingerprints, etc
  • Provides products with a professional and factory fresh appearance
  • Bundles products together if selling multiple items as a set

What is Shrink Wrapping?
Shrink wrap is a plastic film that you can wrap around any object.  Heat is then applied to the surface (via heat gun or shrink tunnel), which causes the plastic to shrink. As it shrinks, it conforms to the shape of your object and seals itself.

How to Choose a Shrink Wrapping Machine?

Sealer Sales carries a full line of shrink wrapping systems (L-Bar sealers and shrink tunnels) to help you with your shrink wrapping needs.  When it comes to choosing the right machine, there’s a few easy questions to answer to help us identify which machine will work best for your application.

  • What are you packaging? Will this be a retail or industrial application?
  • What are the dimensions of your package – length x width x height?
  • What is the weight of your package?
  • What is the speed you need? Think of how many packages you will need to run.
  • What type of shrink film will be used?
  • What is the gauge of the shrink film?

Download our shrink wrapping machine survey which has a complete list of questions you will want to answer.  Answering these questions will help us identify the appropriate shrink wrapping system and film for you.

How to determine the right film size?

  • Measure the width and height of your product and add 5-10% to the measurement.  This provides you with your minimum shrink bag width.
  • Measure the length and height of your product and add 5-10% to the measurement. This provides you with your minimum shrink bag length.
  • For shrink film (usually sold as centerfold film), take the smallest figure of the two to determine the shrink film size needed.
  • If the size you needs is not available, a larger size can be used because shrink films will shrink up to 40% in all directions

Having these measurements will also now help you what size shrink wrapping machine will work for your product.

We carry a wide variety of machines from the starter units to more automatic systems.   See our comparison guide below of our most popular machines.

Sealer Sales L-Bar Sealer Comparison

Table-Top L-Bar Shrink Wrapping
An L-Bar sealer are designed with two sealing sides which allow you to seal and cut centerfold shrink film in one step.  Our table top L-Bar sealers (YC-series and W-series) are both easy to use.  The L-bar sealers are ideal for small production sizes such as start up businesses. Once you seal your package closed using an sealer, you will need either a heat gun or shrink tunnel in order to complete the shrink wrapping process.

Combo Shrink Wrapping Units
Our combo shrink wrapping units allow you to seal and shrink with one machine.  This is ideal for smaller foot print locations which cannot accommodate larger units.  Our combo units will tend to be a little slower than our other free-standing L-bar sealers.  Please note most of our larger machines will require 220V.  Our SS-48ST unit is a combo unit that is offered in 110V voltage for smaller facilities that do not have 220V available.  Please note that we always prefer 220V for shrink tunnels as this will allow the machine to be more productive and efficient.

Free-Standing Semi-Automatic L-Bar Machines
Our free-standing L-Bar Combo machines will be the most efficient and quickest way to shrink wrap.  We recommend these machines for heavier duty applications.  Our free standing machines are equipped with a dual magnet hold down which removes operator error when correct seal and cool times are selected.  A power discharge conveyor will push the product into the shrink tunnel once sealing process is completed.
