“I believe leaks have dropped significantly since we started using the induction sealer. Switching to induction sealing with Enercon has eliminated leaks and solved an important issue for our company,” Richard Dyson, Managing Director at Greyland.
Induction seals can be used to prevent products from leaking. The technology used in induction sealing guarantees airtight sealing that can endure considerable pressure.
This ensures your product will not leak during storage, the transportation process or before your consumer is ready to use your product.
Many larger retailers and shipping companies – including Amazon - require a form of leak protection such as an induction seal.
“Conduction sealing and PET was not a good mix. Induction sealing is a superior technology. It produces more consistent seals and fewer failures. We haven’t had a leak since installing the Enercon induction sealer.” J. Henry Scott, Founder and CEO of Zipz Inc.
Extend shelf life and maintain product freshness:
“Since moving to induction sealing it has provided us with product integrity and ensured a good shelf life. We would definitely recommend Enercon to others.” Owner of Otofé Royal Africa Sauce Brand, Ogbuiji.
Induction liners act as hermetic seals which prevent oxygen and moisture transmission into the product.
This helps preserve the product and extend shelf life – in some cases, by up to three months.
“It was important for both product integrity / tamper evidence and for some products to maintain shelf life. Induction sealing offered a solution to both problems and as liners could be included with closure’s so avoided requirements for additional process steps / machinery.” Mark Leverington, Supply chain manager for Clarks.
Tamper evidence and counterfeit protection:
“Induction cap sealing allows us to provide products of a high quality to our customer as a hermetic seal is proof to the user that the products are the same as when they leave our production lines.” Opet Madeni Yağlari
Induction sealing can provide tamper evidence to its users as foils must be removed or destroyed in order to access the product. This is particularly important for the safety and satisfaction of the end users. Thanks to an intact seal, the end user knows the product has not been tampered with and can be sure of its authenticity.
“We use induction cap sealing because of customer demand. It’s where the market is going and customers like to see a hermetically sealed package as this proves to them that the product has not been tampered with.” Richard Willmott, Director of Whitehills Supplements.
"Enercon's machines are stronger, more efficient and can be easily intergrated into production lines to maintain fast production speeds. We are also able to change the sealing heads very easily, which allows us to seal different sized products without losing production time." Carlos Prino, Industrial Projects Director at Mendes Goncalves.
Induction sealing technology is often praised by users for increasing productivity when compared to other sealing methods.
Induction sealing machines are able to work at high-speed and remove the need for touching or handling the product.
They can be powered on and ready to use instantly. Therefore no time is wasted by long warming up and cooling down periods, as experienced with conduction sealing where maintaining proper sealing temperature is necessary. Induction sealing only heats the foil liner.
Induction sealers are also easier to move from one production line to another as they can simply be wheeled into place over an existing section of conveyor. No time is wasted and production can go on without further interruption.
Enercon has specifically designed its induction sealers to include interchangeable sealing heads to allow for different product lines to be sealed without losing precious production time.
“With the Enercon equipment, we can fill at regular line speeds. We don’t lose filling speed, as we did with the other conduction unit,” Mickey Marimonti, Supervisor of Mechanical Services for Tums, part of the GlaxoSmithKline group.
Virutally no maintenance:
"We have not had any issues with any of the induction sealers since installation, literally no breakdowns in over 8 years. I wish other machinery would run this well. Mark Leverington, Supply Chain Manager at Clarks.
The latest range of air-cooled sealers require virtually no maintenance or consumables to continue to work effectively and efficiently.
In fact some of our customers describe their 20 year old machines as being ‘like new’.
In comparison with other sealing methods, an induction sealer does not need to be cleaned regularly as no contact takes place between the sealer and the containers.
“The Enercon induction sealer is one of the most reliable machines on our line. After over 20 years of use the unit still works perfectly and looks like new,” Jim Peace, Production Director of Shaws.
Induction sealing offers a solution that is friendlier to the environment, when compared with other sealing systems such as conduction, as it uses less energy.
By moving to induction sealing, many manufacturers are also able to reduce the thickness of the foil and the amount of plastic used in the closure and bottle.
"Induction sealing has the added benefit of being environmentally friendly due to the reduction in plastic weight," Ronald Pollock, John Pollock and Sons.
"Induction sealing offers a solution to both those problems [product freshness and tamper evidence] and as foil liners can be included with closures, it avoids the requirements for additional process steps and machinery." Mark Leverington, Supply Chain Manager at Clarks.
Saving money is oneof the first reasons manufacturers move to induction cap sealing. How they save money can be achieved in many ways:
1. The considerable energy savings and increased output from running the machine
2. The reduction in costs from recalled products that have leaked
3. Extended shelf life
4. Reduction in maintenance
5. Reduced downtime
6. Reduction in the amount of material used in the closure and container
