IMPAK IS YOUR ANSWER TO THE QUESTION “WHO CAN FIX OR MODIFY MY SEALER?"
IMPAK has expanded our Customer Service Operation to include overhaul of most Impulse Heat Sealers made by virtually any manufacturer WORLDWIDE including Aline, Accu-seal, Vertrod, PAC, Promax, Fuji and more. We can retrofit your existing equipment with the latest technology platform which runs on a Siemens HMI platform.
Examples of past overhaul and retrofit projects.
EXAMPLE 1: Fuji vacuum sealers replaced, refurbished or brought to a level of functionality.
We started with 17 units and were able to make 11 of them work again. Here is a picture of the 3 that are left.

EXAMPLE 2: Aline 60-inch Heavy Duty Large Frame Industrial Impulse Heat Sealers (Pet Products Leader (PPL*))
Challenge: PPL, a world leader in the production of pet products, had a quantity of 10 individual, 60 inch long, Heavy Duty, (HD) Large Frame Industrial Grade impulse heat sealing machines with high speed vacuum function (originally produced by Aline Corporation www.alinesys.com) from 2005 to 2014.) PPL’s challenge started as a result of explosive demand for their products caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. In conjunction with this sudden rise in demand for their products, they realized their existing sealers had degraded to the point that meeting their multi-shift operation schedule was jeopardized. To resolve PPL’s issue, IMPAK submitted proposals to solve the throughput issue.
Solution: PPL chose to refurbish and upgrade existing sealers to advanced standards. (Although Aline went bankrupt in 2012, IMPAK Corporation’s Machinery Group is committed to supporting and manufacturing all of the equipment previously produced by Aline.)
*We refer to them as PPL, for “Pet Products Leader,” instead of their company name because of our commitment to their privacy and the terms of our NDA. (Spring-Summer 2021)
EXAMPLE 3: Promax Heavy Duty Impulse Heat Sealer (HD-25) 25 inch (US Government Agency)
Remanufactured and upgraded to IMPAK iS2 temperature control with Siemens HMI and expanded seal length to 26.5 inches (673mm) (winter 2019)
EXAMPLE 4: Promax HD-1 One Inch Circular Heavy Duty Impulse Heat Sealer (US Government Agency)
Remanufactured and upgraded to IMPAK iS2 temperature control with Siemens HMI (winter 2019)

EXAMPLE 5: Aline HD-48 Heavy Duty Large Frame Industrial Grade Impulse Heat Sealer (Packaging Products Leader)
Challenge: Their two Aline, 48-inch Heavy Duty (HD-48) Large Frame Industrial Grade Impulse Heat Sealers were no longer functioning and replacement parts were no longer available. put issue.
Solution: Due to their frequency of use, the client decided to overhaul and upgrade their existing sealers and chose IMPAK to perform the upgrade.
EXAMPLE 6: Accu-Seal 48 Inch Bar Sealer
It doesn’t matter who built it originally or when – from the defunct A-line Corporation to the nonexistent Thermoseal equipment manufacturer or the well-respected Accu-Seal Corporation of San Diego, CA. For example, we have converted a 48” Accu-Seal bar sealer from a one sided into two sided heat when the company would not do it even though the end-user was located 7.6 miles from the Accu-seal facility.

Do you have a 20+ year old unit that needs to work in an explosion-proof environment – send us your machine and we’ll retrofit it with our iS² intelligent sealing system utilizing the most modern Siemens PLC and HMI – just ask Lockheed Martin.(See example screen shot below.)
NEED A HEAT SEALER OR VACUUM SEALER BUILT TO YOUR EXACT SPECIFICATIONS?
HOW ABOUT A CHAMBER UNIT WITH PRECISE TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE CONTROLS LARGE ENOUGH TO HOLD A 72” X 84” OBJECT? OR A 3/8” SEAL ON A 120” WIDE BAR UNIT WITH A FLYING KNIFE THAT IS SEALING 6 TO 8 MIL FILM, FROM A ROLL, AND CUTTING IT AT THE SAME TIME? WE HAVE DONE IT. See detials here:
