MINI PAK'R® Air Cushion Machine Now Makes 24" Wide Bubble Cushioning
The MINI PAK'R Machine is the most versatile air cushion machine available,
now making seven different air cushions.
Fremont, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) – October 28, 2012 -- FP International, is proud to announce that their MINI PAK'R Air Cushion Machine can now make a 24" wide PILLOW PAK® bubble packing material. With the purchase of an optional support arm kit, the compact packaging machine makes seven air cushions for void fill, cushioning and now wide wrapping applications.
"This machine is the most versatile air cushion machine on the market, making a 24" wide bubble air cushion, users can eliminate the need to store bulky bubble, loosefill or paper," says Shawn Lance, Product Manager. The MINI PAK'R air cushion machine is a low cost, compact system that creates seven different air cushions for protecting products during shipping. The MINI PAK'R machine replaces packing peanuts, pre-made bubble, kraft paper and foam-in-place products.
The MINI PAK'R PILLOW PAK Quilt Medium bubble is perforated every six inches and has a height of 7/ 8"; thicker than most pre-made bubble and reduces the number of wraps needed, while providing superior cushioning protection. A single roll of MINI PAK'R PILLOW PAK makes the equivalent of a 1,000' square foot bundle. Un-inflated, a roll measures 29" wide and 640' long.
"Now internet retailers, or those with "Ship from Store" or "Return to Manufacturer," programs have an unbeatable compact solution for protecting their products and reducing their damage claims." says Pete Steinke, Sales Manager. Producing cushions at 25 feet per minute, the MINI PAK'R machine is easy to operate, since the 13 pound machine "reads" an RFID tag in the film roll, and automatically sets the air fill amount and seal temperature. Simply select one of the seven films MINI PAK'R offers, load the film and make perfect, inflatable cushioning void fill.
The MINI PAK'R is used by businesses shipping fewer than 150 boxes a day, and uses less fuel and emits fewer greenhouse gases in transportation - as one truckload of Quilt Medium film makes the equivalent of 28 truckloads of Â½" bubble. It's easy to save space with the MINI PAK'R machine when one small roll of MINI PAK'R Double Cushion film equals nearly seven 14 cubic foot bags of packing peanuts. The MINI PAK'R is sold throughout the US and on multiple continents including Latin America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
