Air cushions in a few easy steps

Storopack launches the AIRmove² air cushion system on the market

The AIRmove² air cushion system from Storopack will be launched on the market in April 2017 and is designed for workplaces with requirements of 200 to 500 packages a day.

Metzingen, April 2017.  Storopack, the protective packaging specialist, is launching its new air cushion system AIRmove² on the market in April. The machine manufacturers air cushions, which provide products with optimal protection in shipping cartons, at the touch of a button. The air cushions are produced directly at the packing station while AIRmove² also stands out on account of its compact size. Users therefore save on storage costs compared to traditional protective packaging material. With production output of around 10 metres of film per minute, the packaging material is quickly made available while AIRmove² also impresses with a low-noise film guidance system. AIRmove² is the ideal solution in workplaces with packaging requirements of 200 to 500 packages a day.

Efficient and cost-effective
The diverse range of air cushions are ideally suited for wrapping, cushioning, securing and filling empty spaces in shipping cartons. “AIRmove² provides customers who have medium-level packaging requirements with an optimal and cost-effective protective packaging solution. The packaging material can be produced in a few simple steps and used for a wide range of applications,” remarked Michael Spicker, AIR product manager at Storopack.

AIRmove² can be easily integrated into existing packaging processes and used either as a tabletop unit or wall-mounted. AIRmove² can be deployed immediately thanks to its quick start function. It is operated via a clear text display which allows the film type and filling volume of the air cushions to be easily configured. Alternatively, the AIRmove² film output can be controlled via a foot pedal or a push button. AIRmove² is equipped with an exchangeable cutting system and the film easily dispenses from the roll. Storopack supplies the three film types VOID, BUBBLE and CUSHION for the machine, enabling the air cushions to be manufactured in various forms. They are available in different sizes: VOID for large air cushions (200 x 120 millimetre), CUSHION for padding with smaller air cushions (400 x 250 millimetre) and BUBBLE for padding with standard-size air cushions (400 x 160 millimetre). All film rolls are 350 metres long and easy to change.
