2e1ax_plain_entry_MPS7100-M--CBA-12-7-IRThis is a challenge faced by many packaging decision makers. Every company is different and the decision to buy a bag sealer is often driven by different needs.

So where to start when selecting a bag sealer?

There are many starting points but one of the easier ones is the kind of bag that you will be sealing. This is important in confirming that the potential bag sealer can effectively seal your bag. Can you imagine spending a day researching different bag sealers only to find out that the one you selected is not capable of sealing your bag? Or worse yet, purchasing a bag sealer that cannot seal your bag? Exactly.

Here are a few bag specifications that you can give to a prospective bag sealing supplier to help you get to the right bag sealer:

  1. The bag material – there are different bag sealers for different types of bags. Bag materials include; low density or high density polyethylene, tyvek, foil or paper with an inner plastic layer.
  2. The bag style – is it a pillow, stand up, pouch, wicketed, slider or laminate bag?
  3. Bag thickness – this is important in determining the speed of your bag sealer.
  4. Bag size – this helps to select the size and speed of your bag sealer.
  5. Bag weight when filled – always use your heaviest product to get this information. By doing this, you will be confident that your bag sealer can seal all the bags that you will use in your packaging line.

If you do not know points 1, 2, 3 & 4, you can get them from the company that sold you your bags.
