Lap Sealers acheive this savings by forming shrink film around your product, overlapping the edges of the film and tacking it together using static sealing or heat sealing. This shrink wrapping process produces no waste! All other categories of shrink wrappers such as l bar sealers or side sealers produce waste or selvage with the shrink wrap. Lap Sealers or horizontal form fill seal shrink wrappers are especially attractive to operations with large production runs of similiar product and they are typically also the fastest of all shrink wrapper styles.
