You may be wondering what is this artifact that looks a bit like a stapler? What does it do with a pressed lever or “jaw”? This is actually a heat sealing machine that is manually operated.
Heat sealers can be used on any product that uses plastic bags or packaging that needs to be permanently sealed. It reduces packing time and is very safe. As part of a collection of packaging gadgets, they can help streamline your process and boost your bottom line.
What is an Impulse Sealer?
An impulse sealer is a power tool used to seal different types of plastic packaging – most commonly plastic bags containing multiple sets of parts or assemblies. It uses electrical pulses to heat a metal wire, melting one layer of plastic into another. This creates a permanent seal that can only be broken by cutting it (or, for the impatient among us, ripping it) later.
One of the advantages of using an impulse sealer over an automatic heat sealer is that there is no preheat time and no cool down time. As such, they are much safer to use (of course, anyone using them needs to be properly trained on how to use it).
