Heat Sealer Equipment Repair Services: Custom Made, Retrofit, Overhaul, Remanufacture:

  • Any Brand including Aline, Promax, Accu-Seal, Vertrod, Gramatech, Fuji, overseas brands and more.
  • WHO WE ARE...IMPAK is known for its production of flexible packaging and sorbents that help our customers achieve controlled atmosphere packaging solutions. We are also extremely proud of our world-class machinery group. The machinery group is an established leader in providing solutions to the most challenging demands in the market for thermal impulse and constant heat sealers. When it comes to heat sealing equipment that requires vacuum technology and capability, IMPAK equipment beats the competition, because we KNOW their products.

    IMPAK IS YOUR ANSWER TO THE QUESTION “WHO CAN ASSESS AND REPAIR OR MODIFY MY HEAT SEALER?"

    IMPAK has expanded our Customer Service Operation to include ASSESSMENT and overhaul of most Impulse Heat Sealers made by virtually any manufacturer WORLDWIDE including Aline, Accu-seal, Vertrod, PAC, Promax, Fuji and more. We can retrofit your existing equipment with the latest technology platform which runs on a Siemens HMI platform.

    Examples of past overhaul and retrofit projects.



    EXAMPLE 1: Aline 60-inch Heavy Duty Large Frame Industrial Grade Impulse Heat Sealers with Custom Designed Nozzle (Pet Products Leader (PPL*)) (1Q2021)

    Challenge: PPL, a world leader in the production of pet products, had a quantity of 10 individual, 60 inch long, Heavy Duty, (HD) Large Frame Industrial Grade impulse heat sealers with high speed vacuum function and custom designed vacuum nozzle (originally produced by Aline Corporation www.alinesys.com from 2005 to 2014.) PPL’s challenge started as a result of explosive demand for their products caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. In conjunction with this sudden rise in demand for their products, they realized their existing sealers had degraded to the point that meeting their multi-shift operation schedule was jeopardized. To resolve PPL’s issue, IMPAK’s proposals to convert to a Siemens PLC based Temperature Control System was accepted by the customer.

    Solution: PPL chose to refurbish and upgrade existing sealers with the IMPAK iS2 Temperature Control System. It not only significantly increased throughput, it dramatically decreased consumable spare part expenditures by 78.6% (heater bands and PTFE Covers) and downtime and also, realized labor costs to change consumable spare parts.

    *We refer to them as PPL, for “Pet Products Leader,” instead of their company name because of our commitment to their privacy and the terms of our NDA. (Spring-Summer 2021) Note: Although Aline went bankrupt in 2012, IMPAK Corporation’s Machinery Group is committed to supporting and manufacturing all of the equipment previously produced by Aline.



    EXAMPLE 2: Promax Heavy Duty Impulse Heat Sealer (HD-25) 25 inch

    Challenge: Sealing performance degraded and replacement parts became scarce for their existing heat sealers.

    Solution: Overhaul and upgrade to IMPAK’s iS2 Temperature Control System with Siemens HMI and expand seal length to 26.5 inches (673 mm.) (winter 2019)



    EXAMPLE 3: Promax HD-1 One Inch Circular Heavy Duty Impulse Heat Sealer (US Government Agency)

    Challenge: Sealing performance degraded and replacement parts became scarce for their existing heat sealers.

    Solution: Overhaul and upgrade to IMPAK’s iS2 Temperature Control System with Siemens HMI. (winter 2019)

    EXAMPLE 4: Aline HD-48 Heavy Duty Large Frame Industrial Grade Impulse Heat Sealer (Packaging Products Leader)

    Challenge: Their two Aline, 48-inch Heavy Duty (HD-48) Large Frame Industrial Grade Impulse Heat Sealers were no longer functioning and replacement parts were no longer available.

    Solution: Due to their frequency of use, the client decided to overhaul and upgrade their existing sealers and chose IMPAK to perform the upgrade to Siemens based PLC iS2 Temperature Control System.



    EXAMPLE 5: Aline 48 Inch Explosion Proof Sealer Retrofit

    Retrofitted Explosion Proof sealer for Lockheed Martin with IMPAK’s Intelligent Seal System, (iS2) Explosion Proof Foot pedal and other mechanical and electrical modifications.

    Do you have a 20+ year old unit that needs to work in an explosion-proof environment – send us your machine and we’ll retrofit it with our iS² intelligent sealing system utilizing the most modern Siemens PLC and HMI – just ask Lockheed Martin.(See example screen shot below.)



    EXAMPLE 6: Accu-Seal 48 Inch Bar Sealer

    It doesn’t matter who built it originally or when – from the defunct A-line Corporation to the nonexistent Thermoseal equipment manufacturer or the well-respected Accu-Seal Corporation of San Diego, CA. For example, we have converted a 48” Accu-Seal bar sealer from a one sided into two sided heat when the company would not do it even though the end-user was located 7.6 miles from the Accu-seal facility.

    EXAMPLE 7: Fuji vacuum sealers replaced, refurbished or brought to a level of functionality.

    We started with 17 units and were able to make 11 of them work again. Here is a picture of the 3 that are left.

    NEED A HEAT SEALER OR VACUUM SEALER BUILT TO YOUR EXACT SPECIFICATIONS? 

    HOW ABOUT A CHAMBER UNIT WITH PRECISE TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE CONTROLS LARGE ENOUGH TO HOLD A 72” X 84” OBJECT? OR A 3/8” SEAL ON A 120” WIDE BAR UNIT WITH A FLYING KNIFE THAT IS SEALING 6 TO 8 MIL FILM, FROM A ROLL, AND CUTTING IT AT THE SAME TIME? WE HAVE DONE IT. See detials here:
