Traco Stardard SuperSealer (SS) I-Bar Shrink Wrap Machine Video

Traco SS Standard SuperSealer I-Bar Sealer Shrink Wrap MachineI have been asked my many entrepreneurs and start-up businesses what the best way is to package items such as DVDs, CDS, small boxes and other products for retail sale. My answer is always, “try using a shrink wrap machine.” One of the most reputable shrink wrap machines we offer is the Traco Standard SuperSealer (SS) shrink wrap machine. We use this same machine in our warehouse and I have had many opportunities to use it, including filming an informational video demo.

To begin with, Traco has been around for 27 years and manufactures a variety of I-bar machines, L-bar sealers, shrink wrap systems and offers a wide range of shrink wrap film. I like their products and consider them to be of a good caliber.

The Traco Standard SuperSealer is an I-bar sealer / shrink wrap machine. It is sometimes referred to as a straight-bar sealer. This is because it utilizes a single bar for cutting film, whether it be shrink wrap backs or centerfold shrink film. It includes a heat gun, which is used to complete the shrink wrap process.

This is a video demonstration of me using the Traco SS-24SS SuperSealer.

Overall the results look very professional. The only downside to using an I-bar sealer is that it is very manually involved. You have to manually flip the product to seal the sides (which isn’t difficult). I would estimate 1-2 minutes to package a product, perhaps faster if the operator is experienced. This isn’t slow, but can’t be used for high-volume packaging purposes either.

I have used the SuperSealer shrink wrap machines with PVC and Polyolefin films. PVC is typically ideal for CDs, DVDs and boxes where Polyolefin is great for food, fruit baskets, etc. The included heat gun works very well and quickly shrinks the film down in seconds.

I personally consider the Traco line (both Standard and Delux SuperSealers) to be high quality products. The only other I-bar sealer that I would consider to be of equal quality is the AIE I-bar sealer found here. The AIE machine comes with a starter roll of film, which is pretty nice.

    When I was in outside sale in the print industry years ago — I used to ALWAYS use the shrink wrapper machine. It was just terrific for my files .. but everything (samples etc) into the bag and seal it up. Also great for my yearly taxes. I though ever OFFICE should have one. It was a lot of fun once you figured it out. My feeling is that you need two sizes, one for those larger items. We used to put a small whole in the plastic to let the air out. It was an “adult” item due to the heat, but kids going through the “wood working” stage would find it pretty darn neat. I would love to buy one of these down the say .. I’m up in Canada, so the border might be a big pain.

    Thanks so much for the comment! That is a great idea using two different sizes. I agree that every office should use a shrink wrap machine. We sell shrink wrap machines and we still use them for bundling and packaging our own paperwork and products on a daily basis.
