Heat Seal was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1950 as a stretch wrapping machinery and related products manufacturer. Heat Seal’s commitment to quality and innovation allowed the company to fast become a major machinery supplier for the supermarket industry. The continued success of Heat Seal in this market enabled the company to innovate and develop machines for different packaging methods.
In the late 1980’s, Heat Seal directed its packaging machinery expertise toward the Shrink Packaging industry. Heat Seal applied the same winning formula of quality and innovation to Shrink Packaging. Quickly, Heat Seal became a major producer of manual and semi-automatic L Sealers and Shrink Tunnels, as well as Combination Shrink Systems.
In 1994, Heat Seal purchased Ampak, a leading manufacturer of Skin Packaging machinery and related products. This acquisition allowed Heat Seal to bypass years of product development and immediately become a full line industrial packaging machinery source.
AMPAK was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1966 as the original manufacturer of Skin packaging machinery and vertical bagger machinery. To this day, Ampak skin packaging and vertical baggers set the standard of quality and value in the industry.
Heat Seal and Ampak are a quality manufacturing source for packaging machinery in a multitude of packaging methods. Since the acquisition, both companies have expanded and improved their existing product lines. All product lines now offer many standard features, multiple sizes and a list of options second to none in the industry. Over the last several years, Heat Seal has continued to innovate its packaging product. A new line of Heavy Duty L Bar Sealers, Heavy Duty Shrink Tunnels and Heavy Duty Combo Systems have been designed to complement its current line and offer a full line of features. Semi-Automatic and Automatic Bundlers have been developed to offer our customers more packaging options for bundling products manually or automatic. For speed requirements in the shrink industry, our Automatic L Sealer and Shrink Tunnel Combo System has been introduced to help packagers take a step toward packaging automation.

Industrial heat shrink tunnels use heat to shrink film around packages. Shrink tunnel standard sizes range from 15” wide by 6” high up to 22” wide by 8” high, with varying lengths and extended heights. Shrink tunnels are often used in conjunction with an L bar sealer or sleeve wrapper bundler, but also stand alone for shrink banding applications.

Shrink banding seals tamper evident bands on medicine bottles, soup containers, perishables, and in other safety applications.

Ampaks industrial skin packaging machines are high quality performance skin packagers, available in several size independent skin machines or automate the process with a Skin Packaging System.

Skin packaging provides lock down product protection, product visibility and tamper evidence.
A lower cost packaging option, skin packaging is often used to display products and protect products during shipping and processing. Following the skin packaging process, die cutting is added as a finishing option. Often times, multiple products are skinned to one card and then die cut into individual packages. Skin packaging is often used to display sharp objects like saw blades or drill bits and tamper-evidence applications.
