We have two types of sealers that offer a “cut” option: a cut and seal sealer (aka a sealer with a round wire) OR a sealer with a sliding cutter. Please take a look at the two options to determine which sealer works best for you. If you have questions, please contact us or one of our distributors!
Seal and Cut Sealer
A seal and cut sealer is most often used in shrink wrapping film and bags. When using a seal and cut sealer, any excess material above the seal is cut off creating a clean seamless seal.
Seal and Cut Sealer (Round Wire)
When purchasing a seal and cut sealer, ask for an impulse sealer with a ROUND wire instead of a flat wire. Flat wire sealers create seal widths such as 2mm, 5mm, or 10mm seal widths. Round wires create no seam.
If you already have a 2mm sealer, you can easily purchase a round wire heating element and convert your sealer to a cut and seal sealer. Please note: ONLY 2mm sealers can be converted, a 5mm or 10mm sealer CANNOT be converted to a round wire. See our instructions on how to change your heating element wire.
Sealer with Sliding Cutter
Now, a sealer with a sliding cutter is most often used to trim a bag length or seal poly tubing. A sealer with a sliding cutter is equipped with a blade which will cut any excess material about 1/4″ from the seal line.
We carry sealers with cutters in a 2mm and 5mm seal width. We recommend using a 2mm for sealing materials 3-5mil thick (6-10mil total) and 5mm seal width for sealing materials 6-10mil thick (12-20mil total).
