In the industrial sector, heat sealers play a crucial role in packaging and sealing products. Cheap Chinese sealers may seem like an attractive option due to their low prices, but they often lack the quality and durability needed for long-term industrial use. MEC is a brand of heat sealers that has been trusted internationally by the packaging industry for over 30 years.

In this post, we will explore why MEC heat sealers are a superior option to cheap Chinese sealers.

MEC sealers are Quality Manufactured Industrial Grade Sealing Machines

MEC heat sealers and components are manufactured in ISO9001 factories, ensuring that they meet strict quality control standards. The build quality is designed for the US and European markets. All aspects of the build quality, from the thickness of the body work, the size of the transformers, the raw materials used and the quality of the electronics on the control boards is far superior to other brands.

This not only means better performance but also that MEC sealers are built to last and are less likely to break down, saving you money in the long run. Cheap Chinese sealers, on the other hand, are often made with lower quality materials, poor electronics and almost never manufactured to the same standards.
