Airpad Machines
The compact, portable and easy-to-use Airpad machine produces protective packaging and void-filling material at the touch of a button. No operator is required. Airpad is made from two rolls of flat film which are inflated with air, heat sealed and perforated. The formed pads are then coiled into a large light-weight roll.The Airpad system is covered by worldwide patents.

Fields of Application (sectors)
The Airpad mats are superior thanks to the high impact absorption capacity of each separate Airpad element. A single pad can withstand an impact of over 1000 N, depending on the film used. Your goods are excellently protected against shock and other impacts. These characteristics also apply for delicate items without the use of any further packaging material. The range of pad sizes lets you efficiently customize your packaging operation. This system has been proven effective for any type of shipment and transportation.

Economic and Environmental Advantages
Airpad protective material consists of  99% air and 1% film. The savings over competitive systems are from 30% to  50%. Airpad is clean, free of dust and reusable. In the event of disposal it represents a minimum amount of waste and can be recycled.   Less material, less weight and less storage space result in lower costs and substantial overall savings. Airpad is the economical and environmental alternative.

The Airpad product protection and void-fill material

Airpad is the multi-use interior packaging material that adequately serves the need for product protection, shock absorption and void-filling applications. The Airpad product protection and void-filling material consists of air cushions available in many different sizes. The air cushions are vertically and horizontally connected and wound into large rolls. The strips of pads are laterally perforated thus allowing the user to tear off the appropriate length of cushion material required for the packaging and void-filling application.

Versatility of Airpad film

By selecting the Airpad AP500 range, you are choosing a product which can be adapted to your current and future requirements. This machine is able to process a wide range of films. If product protection and/or void filling are needed, our standard film can cover these requirements at any time. If anti static protection is needed or the product is subject to extreme situations, either our anti static film or the exceptionally strong multi-layer film can be used.

The large number of programs allows you to produce the most suitable Airpads for your product. Since both Airpad models can process a wide range of film qualities of various thicknesses, a virtually unlimited number of combinations and applications are possible. The number of combinations can be multiplied again by changing the air pressure used in the Airpads.
