Heat Sealer Project

Since  joining Protective Packaging 10 years ago, first as a Machine Operator and now as an Engineer, I’ve been working on the Hand Sealers used to manufacture our Barrier Foil Bags and Liners.

On many occasions I’ve been thinking of ways to make them more comfortable to work with. heat sealing equipment  The biggest issue for many in production, even myself, is tiredness and hand ache during the long and frequent usage of the hand sealers. By listening to these concerns I have come up with an improvement for the handles. Working as an electrical technician with a huge variety of electrical materials one particular item caught my eye – Heat Shrink Sleeve!

The existing cushioning  used on the handles deteriorates very quickly due to the excessive usage of the sealers. The way to improve the comfort of the handles is to cover the handles and heat shrink with this adhesive heat shrink sleeve.  This new adaptation has already been trialed across our hand fabrication department with surprisingly positive feedback and fair demand. I must admit though that in one instant this project hasn’t worked as hoped. The material that the heat shrink is made from doesn’t  suit every hand and for one person caused some  friction blistering – amazing to see our production team pushing their boundaries!

It’s certainly a step in the right direction.  By changing to a more skin friendly material we could see the true benefit of this improvement.sealer handles

Cushioning Protection

When packaging machinery within a barrier foil bag, sharp edges and corners can be a problem. This can be addressed by using self-adhesive cushioning which sticks directly to the relevant blockings and cradles.

This highly versatile material is a quick and easy method which provides an ideal substitute for felt, polystyrene, bubble foam or non adhesive polyethylene foam and is available in standard 5cm and 10cm wide rolls.IMG_6190 - Copy

The use of the cushioning material ensures that no punctures occur in the barrier foil bag during shipment guaranteeing the hermetic seal and total climatic protection of the machine during transit.
