Open Mouth Bag Heat Sealing Machines

Close and seal paper or plastic open mouth bags at rates up to 20 bags per minute. Paper bag sealers pinch the bottom of multi-walled paper bags with a pre-glued flap and heats them until the glue reaches its melting point. Then it folds the flap over and pinches it against the opposing wall of the bag to produce a tight bag seal. Plastic bag sealers hermetically seal poly-based bags using a hot air or rotary band sealer to close the bags. Hot air sealers are recommended for flat or pillow style open mouth bags and band sealers are recommended for gusseted bags.
