Easy to maintain tray sealer tool
We make our clean room tray sealer nests with press-fit gaskets. Each gets a molded silicone gasket that fits into a milled slot. The result? A gasket that’s easy to replace if the original gets damaged or wears out. The “old way” is to just glue the gasket to the plate. You can see the aftermath of trying to cleanup the plate for a replacement!
Also, our nests have Tyvek lid locator pins that thread in (for easy replacement in case one gets damaged). These pins feature soft springs and polished plunger tops so your sealer platen stays un-marred over repeated use.

Most tray sealer tools (or sealer nests) have one or two cavities. This tool shows a 6-up pattern. The optimal production speed balance is usually a factor of seal dwell time vs time to pre-load each tray. Easy to load parts can be put through the sealer faster with multi-up tools (up to the limit of pressure on your sealer, of course).

Pen tip scriber

This little device puts a scribed line on a clear plastic tip (like a calibration line). The part is inserted vertically, then rotated by hand while the clamped wheel cuts a line at a set depth. These parts snap on to a small flash light and provide visual feedback on depth of insertion. We went with a scribed line because printed lines wear off too easily when cleaning between uses.
