Packaging

The packaging industry needs a heat solution that can provide repeatable and reliable results over a long life span. We design and manufacture heaters for plastic packaging, drying, and many other packaging applications. Our heaters have been shown to increase line speed, reduce power consumption, and provide faster heat up and cool down than the competition.

Drying

  • Adhesive Activation
  • Moisture Removal
  • Dehumidification
  • Product Air Drying

Plastic Packaging

  • Plastic Sealing
  • Meat Wrapping
  • Heat Shrink
  • Flexible Packaging
  • Package Printing

Support

Engineering and Support is a big part of what we do. Offered on an application by application basis. With our extensive heat application experience chances are we have done something similar to your application. We can even assist you with your process design. While we generally will not design your process for you we are happy to assist.
