Metzingen, January 2017. Storopack, the protective packaging specialist, is launching a new inflatable packaging system called AIRmove². The AIRmove² system produces air cushion packaging materials providing the product with optimal protection in shipping cartons. AIRmove² is lightweight, compact, and produces packaging material on-demand. This allows customers to save on storage space from traditional protective packaging material. With machine speeds of 33 linear feet per minute, the packaging material is made quickly with little noise. AIRmove² is the ideal inflatable packaging solution in workplaces (i.e. in-store fulfilment) with packaging requirements ranging from 50 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 our 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, AIRplus® 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 begin producing air cushions immediately thanks to its “quick start function.” The different films are all pre-programmed for consistent quality produced air cushions. Alternatively, the AIRmove² film can be controlled by foot pedal or push button if needed. Storopack supplies three film types all available in different sizes: VOID (8” x 5”) for large air cushions, BUBBLE (16” x 6.29”) for wrapping fragile items CUSHION (16” x 9.84”) for padding with smaller air cushions. All film rolls are 1150 feet long and easy to change.

The AIRmove² inflatable packaging system from Storopack will be launched in January 2017. AIRmove² designed for workplaces with requirements of 50 to 500 packages a day.
