Medipak has just completed the purchase, installation and testing of a new bottom-seal bag making machine. You start to see small improvements in the UVLI-bag™. Improvements like: a shorter “skirt” on the end of the bag, a more consistent seal, and a more consistent overall bag length. While the improvements are mostly cosmetic, I’m sure the customers will appreciate the changes.
We also had our two lay-flat film extrusion dies refurbished. Gene Moore and his crew at US Die and Mold in Akron OH did a fantastic job. This improvement will allow us to produce film that has fewer streaks and better over-all color dispersion. Since the coloring is more even, we can produce the UVLI-bag™ ever so slightly thinner, which results in a bag that is even easier to see through.
