How to Seal and Cut Using our Sealers

SealAndCut

Our latest post will be a quick refresher on what our “seal and cut” options are on our sealing equipment.   There are two types of seal and cut:  (1)  cutting excess material so that there is a seamless seal primarily used for shrink wrapping and (2) using a trimmer on a sealer to cut a bag that is too long or to make poly tubing.

For shrink wrapping, you will want to create a seamless seal with no excess material above the seal as you will be heat shrinking the material around your product.  Either use a hand sealer with a ROUND wire or purchase an L-bar sealer.  For more information about shrink wrapping, refer to our previous blog:  Shrink Wrapping 101.

For cutting a bag because it is too long, we have various sealers with sliding cutters.  Usually there is a blade on the sealer which will trim excess material about 1/4″-1/2″ from the seal line.  We carry hand sealers, foot sealers and our newest addition, band sealers with sliding cutters.  The band sealer HLC-1120LD which is equipped with a trimmer to cut off excess material!

HLC-1120LD is suitable for sealing all types of thermoplastic materials and bags. This unit is equipped with a trim scrap system for trimming excess material. The vertical configuration is ideal for sealing stand up pouches and liquid-type products.

We are excited to introduce a couple of products in both our equipment and flexible packaging product line.

Our popular CN-4520A shrink tunnel is now available with a PTFE meshed belt.  This is an excellent option for operators trying to shrink small items which may fall in between the rods of the conveyor.  Check out our video demo.

Our popular FRM-1120LD band sealer now comes in a left to right configuration. Many production lines are built to specific line directions and having a machine that feeds the wrong way can cause unnecessary costs and headaches.   Now, no matter what direction your production line feeds, our FRM-1120LD band sealer can work for you to help you achieve the efficiencies in your production line.

New Flexible Packaging Products: Child Resistant Bags

march2017_blogpost-header_b

Introducing New Flexible Packaging Products:  Child Resistant Bags

New Packaging Solution Meets Federal Regulations for Pharmaceutical, OTC Medications and Marijuana Products
Our CHILD RESISTANT BAGS can be used for any product that should be kept away from children:  detergent pods, marijuana or any substance that may be dangerous to children can be stored in these bags.  These bags include a closure zipper that requires two hands to open.  The zipper can be manipulated by adults easily but will be difficult for children to access.  These bags meet ASTM D3475-15 (American Society for Testing and Material Child Resistant) standards.

To open, push the small lever up, then pull the zipper out to access items.  To close, push the zipper lock until you hear a “click” from the bottom lever.  These extra steps are easy for adults to follow but make it difficult for children to access what’s inside.
