Distribution of your packaging is an important part of your business.  Having attractive packaging can sway a consumer between your product and a competitor.  The right packaging will not only be eye-catching but also works to protect your products as they make their way to store shelves. 

Among the many different options for packaging, you’ll find clamshell and blister packages. Sealed clamshell, blister, full face blister, and trapped blister packages allow you to:

  • Prepare individual compartments for products
  • Portion out the right serving or dosage for food products and medicine
  • Increase the visibility of your products and branding
  • Keep products secure and in place during transit

The Benefits Behind Automatic Sealing Machines

Having an automatic sealing machine on-site will allow you a great deal of customization and operational efficiency.  With a sealing machine, you can load packages into the machine and a custom fixture will keep the plastic clamshell or blister and the cards in place. The plastic blisters and cards are inserted into the machine fixture, reducing the labor cost of manually placing them. The machine will then seal the blister and the card. 

Sealing machines also have different methods of sealing based on the style of package:

  • Traditional and full-face blisters are heat sealed, using a heated plate and pressure in the sealing section.
  • Trapped blisters (or captured blisters) are sealed using heat and pressure to seal one card to the other. In recent years, new cohesive coatings allow the cards to be sealed together using only pressure (cold-sealed).
  • Clamshells seal plastic to plastic and use two adjacent sealing stations to create the seal. The first station heats the plastic and the following station chills the seal to set it.
