Since 1966, the Ampak equipment brand has been a leader in skin packaging and vertical bagging technology. Ampak products offer a complete line of skin packaging, vertical bagging, blister packaging, and die cutting systems.
In 1994, Heat Seal purchased Ampak, a leading manufacturer of Skin Packaging machinery and related products. This acquisition allowed Heat Seal to bypass years of product development and immediately become a full line industrial packaging machinery source.
AMPAK was founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1966 as the original manufacturer of Skin packaging machinery and vertical bagger machinery. To this day, Ampak skin packaging and vertical baggers set the standard of quality and value in the industry.
Ampak's complete line of skin packaging machines is of the highest quality and the easiest to use and can function as standalone units or be integrated with automatic infeed and outfeed systems, along with die cutters to automate the skin packaging process. The Shipmate or Master skin packaging machines can also be used as thermoforming machines and coupled with a die cutter to create your own blisters. All Ampak skin packaging machines use the energy efficient patented Spirad™ instant heater elements.
