A new type of air cushion has been introduced by Automated Packaging Systems for its new AirPouch™ Express 3 Void-fill System. The system uses a specially formulated cushion material coupled with patent pending EZ-Tear™ perforations.
EZ-Tear™ perforations offer several design features that result in convenient and efficient packing. While most strips of air cushions have a continuous perforation between each cushion, the EZ-Tear™ perforations have about 25mm of regular perforation at each side of the cushion, with a clean cut through the center of the cushion. The perforations are strong enough to be pulled from either bins or overhead hoppers; yet individual cushions are easily separated for fast and efficient packing. Additionally, the new design allows for fuller inflation, which provides a better yield and lower cost per cubic metre.
The specially formulated DuraClear™ material is durable and puncture resistant.
