Sealer Sales Featured in PRISM Summer 2019 Issue

SanJoseU_blogpost_header

Over the past couple of years, Sealer Sales has donated packaging equipment and supplies to San Jose State University to help combat food insecurity on the campus.

Sealer Sales and San Jose State University assistant professor Dan Nathan-Roberts were featured in the Summer 2019 cover story by the American Society of Engineering Education’s flagship magazine, PRISM about food insecurity on college campuses. Hunger has become a campus wide problem and many students are unable to afford dining halls. The U.S. Government Accountability Office estimated that some 3.3 million college students potentially eligible for aid, more than half—some 1.8 million individuals—didn’t apply for the benefit in 2016.

Students in the Dan Nathan-Robert’s Work Measurement and Work Design class at San Jose State University learn how to design, produce, test and improve assembly methods for trail mix.  Packaging equipment and supplies for the class were donated by Sealer Sales. In addition to manufacturing a real product, more than 1,000 pounds and 3,000 bags have been donated by the class to the campus food banks over the past four years.   In addition to combating food insecurity on campus, “students in the class see the positive impact that engineering can have, and our trail mix has become one of the most requested items in the pantries” stated Nathan-Roberts.

Sealer Sales is committed to serving educational and charitable organizations and we are very excited to be able to assist with this project. If you would like to help with this project, please reach out to Sealer Sales at contact@sealersales.com or Dan Nathan-Roberts at dan.nathan-roberts@sjsu.edu.

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.

Product of the Month: Air Pillow Machine

Product of the Month

While most of our customers are familiar with our extensive product line with heat sealers, they may be surprised to hear about our inflatable void fill solutions.  This month, we would like to highlight our YC-Series YC-03FD Air Pillow Machine.

What is void fill packaging?  Void fill materials are used to fill spaces in packages after the item is placed in its outside packaging and can help fill empty space or voids in the package.  This also will protect the packaged item from moving around too much and getting damaged during shipment.

Our air pillow machine, YC-03FD is an on-demand inflatable void fill system designed to meet diverse product needs.  The unit is an easy to use, cost effective air pillow machine.  Air pillows can be reusable and are cleaner than peanut or paper packaging.
