Double sealer units have elements on both the upper and the lower jaws of the machines. They are particularly useful for sealing thick materials, and can seal up to 20 mil of material.

In contrast to the impulse sealer units, the constant heat sealer is always available for use. It uses an electrical resistance heater mounted on the sealing bars; along with a thermostat and thermal couple that regulates the temperature of the machine.

Impulse seal heater units come in varying models – hand held, foot operated, sliding knife, tabletop and automatic among others. Hand held impulse units are particularly useful for sealing cellophane, clamshells, poly bags, etc. These bag sealers are available in a wide assortment of designs that can be customized to fit your business’s needs.

These impulse sealer units are useful for making your own flat bags, hanging bags and static bags from poly tubing. On the other hand, automatic tabletop sealers feature adjustable timers that enable you to perform your sealing operations on schedule. They are very precise and produce a constant flat seal.

Similarly, automatic motion sealers generate more secure and identical seal motifs than the previous models. These impulse heat sealers units remarkably improve productivity and all you need to do is set the sealing temperature and seal cool-down time among other controls.

It is important that you buy impulse sealers from reputable suppliers that are known to provide high-quality equipment. You want to buy your heat sealers from a supplier that has been in the business for a long time. Their experience will enable them to provide you with adequate support if you experience any issues with the machines.

Understanding Trash Bags

When searching for Trash Bags, you will find that there are a lot of different kinds which you can choose from. With so many Can Liners, it can be difficult to find the best one for your needs. In order to find the best bags to use in your place of business, you must first evaluate the type of contents that go into these bags. Evaluate if the contents which will be throwing away are paper supplies, heavy objects, or even sharp objects. You also have to determine where these bags will go, and how much of this waste is discarded on a daily basis. Knowing the answers to these questions can help you select the best ones. The three main type of bags you will find are high density, low density, and even low linear density bags. Understanding each of this, will help you select the right bag for your place of business.

High Density Trash Bags are preferred more for office settings. These kinds of Can Liners are ideal for places that discard paper material, such as paper towels, paper plates and cups, or simply paper. These bags are able to hold more, but are not the best bags to use with sharper objects. People who offer landscape services can also benefit from these types of bags. They are able to fit more grass clippings into one bag.

Low Density Can Liners are tougher bags with a stronger tear resistance than high density Trash Bags. These are more suitable for places that have sharp objects to discard. In comparison to higher density bags, these tend to hold a lot less. However, glass, sticks, or objects that can puncture a bag, can be placed in these type of bags. This is more suited for a place that does have sharp objects but is not their main content. For example a business that discards paper products, but occasionally discards sharper objects.

Places like restaurants, that discard sharp objects on a daily basis, such as glass, bones, crab legs, even eating utensils, benefit more from using Linear Low Density Bags. These are up to three times tougher than low density bags. These bags tend to stretch out a lot, before actually puncturing the bag, giving it a higher tear resistance. These also vary in size which may include anything from a 4 gallon bag to even a 60 gallon size bag.

Bagging Items Via Machine


When it comes down to it, most businesses are always looking for ways to do more with the time that they have in the day. When you own a growing business that ships products directly to customers, or to clients who buy items in bulk, it is important that you look for ways to increase the number of items that you can get out of your warehouse on an hourly basis. With this in mind, one of the most important things you can do for your company is to invest in a machine that automatically packages items in bags so that they can be shipped to customers either individually or in bulk. A machine will allow the bagging of hundreds of items per minute, instead of the dozen that an experienced person can do with their own hands.

Of course, with a bagging machine you are also going to need a big supply of bags to go with it. While people have a tendency to pay a lot more attention to the packaging machine than they do the bags that are used, it is important to recognize that quality does matter. Essentially, you need Auto Machine Bags that are made for automatic use, not just in their design but also in their quality. You need bags that are slit in the front and perforated in the back so that they can easily be loaded. You need to make sure that the bags are made for machine use, as generic bags that are too delicate have a tendency to get ripped during the process (which is never a good thing). You can choose to go with an Auto Bag that is clear for superior clarity, or one that has a white front and a clear back for labeling purposes.

When you are talking about auto machine bagging, you are talking about the bagging of thousands of items per day. With this in mind, you better buy your bags in bulk. Most companies that specialize in machine bagging supplies will sell rolls of one to four million bags. While this may sound like a lot, for some companies it may only last them a couple of days, at the most. You can find more info by looking online.

Plastic Bags and the Environment

Let’s face it, when we think about plastic bags the last thing that comes to mind is an environmentally friendly product. Plastic bags are viewed as a serious environmental hazard; they take hundreds, if not thousands of years to biodegrade, consume substantial space in landfills and use resources in manufacturing that contribute to climate change. Clearly, plastic bags are no friend to the environment. 

Although plastic bags may not be environmentally friendly, there is very little that we produce and discard that is. So if we look at plastic bags and the impact they have on the environment, keeping it in context with other man made products that we produce and discard, the impact is not as far reaching as we assume it to be. Here’s why.

Plastic Bags are not the largest component found in landfills.
Actually paper is. While most of trash found in landfills is contained within plastic bags, paper accounts for more than 36% of the trash found in landfills, with 13% being newspaper alone. Plastic materials (not just bags) comprise about 11% of the waste found in landfills.

Plastic not Paper is the greener product.
What!? It’s true. Plastic bags use 40% less energy to produce and generate 80% less solid waste. Further, paper bags generate 70% more emissions and 50 times more water pollutants than plastic bags. Even recycled paper bags use more fossil fuel.

It’s cheaper to recycle plastic than paper.
It takes 91% less energy to recycle a pound of plastic than it takes to recycle a pound of paper. The problem is that only 1% of plastic bags (compared to 20% of paper) are recycled.

One Step Further

Plastic bags are very efficient to manufacture and recycle, but the environment is still a serious concern. We are proud to offer plastic bags that are manufactured using 100% renewable energy like wind and solar. Over 95% of our Lay Flat Bags, Gusseted Bags, Bags on Rolls, Poly Tubing and Poly Sheeting are all manufactured using renewable energy sources.  

In a perfect world, there should be zero impact on the environment, but there is reality. Plastic bags may not be the poster child for a greener planet, but until such a time when technologies are developed to eliminate or greatly reduce our impact on the planet, understanding and controlling the effects we have on the environment is our best bet for now.
