Why is using an L-bar sealer important for shrink wrapping?

Sealers designed for shrink wrapping will create a seamless seal (i.e. excess material above the seal is cut off).   Once a heat source is applied, and the material shrinks around your product, this will ensure a clean look.

See below and example of what NOT to do….here is a product that used the incorrect sealer to shrink wrap.

ShrinkWrap

When you shrink wrap, the package should not have any seams visible.  See below:

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.
