Case sealers all depend upon the type of packaging you select for your products. If your processing and manufacturing plant utilizes more than just plastic and cardboard cases to box, package and ship goods, then you need more than one option. Three ways to seal your products and their benefits follows.
The Zip Strip
Products that need heavy duty packaging also need case sealers that contain the product while still providing customers with easy access. What is commonly referred to as the "zip strip" is a sealer that is glued and/or bonded to the top or side of the case but has a pull strip to open it. Consumers do not have to struggle with pulling, ripping or cutting open the case. They just grab the pull tab and yank until the zip strip has opened the entire case for them. It can be incorporated into both cardboard and plastic packaging.
The Flap Opening
In this type of packaging, the case seals everything in until the customer yanks on a perforated flap to open it. It is a preferred method for containing food and drink products and keeping them from spilling out of the case until the products are consumed. Anytime a consumer wants more product, he or she only has to reach into the open flap and take out as much product as he or she wants.
Usually glass bottles or products contained in ways that could lead to leaks or broken encasements need shrink wrap. An example of this type of case sealer are refrigerated personal-sized bottles of juice. The consumer buys the entire case and the bottles are contained within the shrink wrap sealer. Even after a single bottle is extracted from the case, the shrink wrap holds its shape and keeps the rest of the product in place.
Buying a Machine That Does All of the Above
Case sealing machines provide you with one or more of the above options. If you are in the market for a new machine that helps you expand your business's services, then a case sealing machine that does all of the above will help you accomplish that. Should any one type of case sealer fail with a product, you can always replace it with another, so long as your client is in agreement with the changes. Sometimes changing how a product or case is sealed makes a really big difference in its survival during the shipping process.
