anyone knows how to build a heat seal lidding machine for sealing plastic container and lidding film?.. Answered
It has been quite some time I have been searching around in the internet, web pages, articles, instructables, make magazine or any other DIY thread and forums for a guideline or instruction on how can we built ourselves a heat seal lidding machine which can be used to seal a lidding film to a plastic container which is widely used by the food packaging company. There are a lot automated and sophisticated commercial machine being manufactured by many companies which priced at 10, 20, and even hundreds of thousands dollars. Even for a simple small mini hand operated machine cost up to 1,000 dollars..
I believe I am not the only one who are searching an instruction to DIY this machine, at least for own usage at home for small quantity operation. It is great if there are someone who brilliant, an inventor who can guide us in building this kind of machine. So far that i search, i found out that the closest article about heat seal is an instructable article "how to make a heat sealer" by klee27x. Hope that there is someone out there who can gave us light, either theoratically or a real deal about it.
