Side Sealing Record Albums.
The Product: Record Albums are back! Those of you who enjoyed albums back in the day can recall the experience of the album. It wasn’t just the music that you were buying. The experience includes the liner notes, lyrics and artwork that come with the Album. Artists are extremely sensitive about how their albums are presented to their fans. The packaging can make or break this experience.
Speeds and Dependability: When albums made a comeback there were very few manufacturers still in the business. There has been a fair amount of consolidation in this industry meaning more artists are having their albums pressed at fewer manufacturers. Bigger production runs and busy schedules require time sensitivity and dependability in their equipment. This particular manufacturer had used Conflex equipment in the past and chose to stick with us because of the dependability. This time with more speed.
Side Sealing: The SYNC 2 side sealer produces a 3 sided seal. This is critical for record albums as it keeps the seals along the edges of the album and out of sight. The SYNC 2 is a “continuous motion” side sealer meaning that it runs fast. It can be paired with a flighted infeed for easy loading of the albums while creating perfect spacing. Lastly the Vortex shrink tunnel is critical in customizing the shrink characteristics of the customer’s particular shrink film.

It is an ideal wrapping package for the customer running similar sized product every day. Pair this system with an optional friction feeder on the infeed and it will give it full autonomy with no human intervention. Side seal wrapping is a very flexible type of shrink wrapping allowing for a variety of package sizes and types. This system has the ability to handle small to large products at very high speeds. The changeover process is quickly repeatable through our recipe based HMI.
