Advantages of the AIP system
Providing a machine for air cushion inflation and reams of ready-to-inflate bags, DUNAPACK® enables customers to make the packaging as and when it is needed, minimising storage space. A box of reams with just 0.03 m3 volume makes 8 m3 of cushions. The on-demand inflating system and the provision of not-yet-inflated reams allow the film to be protected from dust and heat, guaranteeing its perfect preservation and cleanness over time. With its smart interface, the AIP040 machine is easy to use and can quickly build up a stock sufficient to supply several stations at once.
The Air in Place cushion system makes ultra-lightweight air packaging that is perfect for minimising the total weight of the box and reducing transport and shipping costs, while still perfectly protecting the product. The on-demand production of the cushions ensures perfect condition and cleanliness, maximum storage efficiency and ease of handling.
