Air pillow perforating process

150622-airpouch_perf_v2.jpgThe AirPouch® Division of Automated Packaging Systems has introduced a new engineering upgrade that eliminates the need for a common wear item found on void-fill air pillow systems, says the company. The new design has replaced the cutting knife that these systems use to slit the film material just prior to filling each pillow with air. Now, a new vertical perforating process used exclusively in the manufacture of the preformed AirPouch pillows allows the company’s Express 3™ Void-fill system to run without a knife, therefore significantly extending the length of time between maintenance cycles. This engineering upgrade makes the AirPouch Express 3 the most reliable and productive void-fill air pillow system available, according to the company. This engineering upgrade is available for units currently installed, and all new AirPouch Express 3 Void-fill Systems will now come standard with the unique knifeless system design. Overall performance specifications for speed and ease of operation are said to remain the same.
