Benefits of Induction Sealing: Protecting Your Product & Customers

for medication, such seals can “not be worked out and reappeared without any visible damage” required by medicines the Food and Drug Administration).

The seals are provided within the caps and constructed of an aluminium foil layer, typically sandwiched between other materials. The aluminium layer with wax, paper and adhesive layers is usually held at the top of your hat. Below is a polymer film layer that sticks the metal to the bottle opening.

Once sealed, the bottles are placed under an induction coil, heating the aluminium foil. This heat releases the foil off the cap simultaneously and screws it into the container. A hand-held device or a higher speed conveyor belt can be used to pass the bottle beneath an induction coil. Many systems are waterless today (air-cooled), taking up approximately half the size of previous water-cooled systems.

Induction Sealing vs Shrink Wrapping

While it is common and familiar to combine multiple individual products with shrinking wrapping, induction sealing is still a preferable choice in many circumstances. Some benefits include:

Less Packaging: Shrink-wrap should cover the container entirely without overlapping flaps to comply with the FDA standards. Induction sealing, by comparison, requires only sufficient material to cover the hole.

The heat to form the seal is less required.

A better, safer seal than the shrink-wrap screws that cover just the container’s lid and neck.

The faster sealing procedure, especially for conveyor belt applications.

Less machine space is needed. Only three to five metres of the conveyor belt can provide a whole system demand space.

How to Get Started

First, calculate how many containers you need to seal, as well as their size and forms. Look for a system that can adapt to changes in packing. See much better if your company can develop up. This figure indicates that most vendors can fit caps from 15 to120 mm, up to 180 feet of conveyor per minute.

Next, decide what power you’re going to require. Depending on the number of containers you must seal each minute, the inductive dumpers might demand from 0.5kw to 6kw.

Before you purchase:

  1. Discuss with your supplier and let them know all your product specifics and packaging.
  2. Ask whether they assist you with your phone problems or whether you constantly have to wait for a service person.
  3. See whether their power supply is separate from their sealing systems, so if only one piece has to be changed, you don’t have to return the complete machine.
