Eastey: Automatic L-bar sealer with shrink tunnel
Eastey’s Professional Series of automatic L-bar sealers with shrink tunnel are designed for large or heavy products that need to be fully enclosed.
The Professional Series automatic sealers are available with either a hot wire or hot knife seal head, feature a powered takeaway mesh conveyor for easy product transport, and magnetic clamping and automatic cycle timing to ensure a proper seal. Products are automatically sealed after they have been delivered onto the infeed conveyor and fed into the centerfold film. After products have been sealed, the outfeed conveyor moves the wrapped product to the shrink tunnel and another new product is moved to the seal area. The automatic L-bar seal head dimensions range from 30- to 50-in. long and 50- to 100-in. wide.
Professional Series sealers combined with Professional Series shrink tunnels provide a positive shrink of all products. Shrink tunnels feature solid-state temperature control and four directional air flow with variable controlled air speed for positive shrink on all sides of the product. The tunnel conveyor can be ordered as stainless-steel mesh belt, live roller, dead roller, or plastic belt. The chamber dimensions range from 20- to 70-in. wide, and 8- to 20-in. high to accommodate a range of different sized products.
