Cincinnati, OH – Storopack, Inc. simplifies the dispensing of air pillows with their new AIRplus® Bag Separator. The fully automatic machine separates strands of air cushions into single air pillows which can then be easily distributed and dispensed. This proven technology separates 8” x 4” or 8” x 8” bags at a rate of 40 bags per minute for straight feed (or 140 bags per minute when feeding a reservoir). Individual air pillows can be distributed to multiple packing stations through custom delivery systems designed to individual customer specifications. Initial installations report throughputs increases of 18-30% with this automated, ergonomic alternative to manual bag separation.
Separated bags can be easily dispensed from overhead hoppers. Spillage can be vacuumed back into the system and re-used, thus eliminating waste and reducing cushioning costs. At just 26” x 26” x 41” this new technology occupies minimal floor space and requires a standard 110 volt outlet. Storopack engineers can assist with installation, answer application questions, and provide no-cost consulting.
