Alligator Automationsoffers hand held, portable, table top, and mounted commercial band sealers.
Band sealers have two bands, typically infused with PTFE to prevent sticking, thathold the top of the bag and carry it between heating elements which hermetically seal the bag closed. Depending on the type of bag, industrial band sealers can produce seals from 1/8” to 1/4" wide at rates up to 60 feet/minute.
Band sealers can be used to seal a wide variety of bags or pouches such as: polyethylene (PE, LLDPE, HDPE) polypropylene (PP) and nylon bags.
Band sealers can be operated in a horizontal, tilted, or vertical position. The vertical position is used if the product can flow out of the bag (i.e. powders, liquids) and the horizontal position is used when the bag can be laid on its side.
