Over the years we have found that most bakeries utilise at least manual and semi automatic L sealers for bagging their products, but if the volumes are high then this can become very slow and labour intensive and this is where an automated packaging system really shows its true value.
Our SLAU 50x50 Automatic L Sealer is capable of accepting 25-30 packs per minute depending upon product size and collation desired, automatically shrink wrapping them in a high clarity polyolefin shrink film and simply works on demand so all the operator has to do is place the product on the machines infeed conveyor and the machine does the rest.
The advantage this type of equipment has over a flow wrapper is the flexibility and easy changes between different products which it can offer because no change parts required what so ever which can be an expensive issue with flow wrappers.
This means that it can literally take 30 seconds to switch between different products.Furthermore depending upon the exact product, the option of shrinking the pack is also provided.
Most applications, such as bagging bread rolls do not require the use of a shrink tunnel, but a recent installation to a London bagel manufacturer did require a high quality shrink finish to a tray of speciality bagels for the retail trade.
