Kite Packaging Ltd have developed an air cushion system that will address the overwhelming gap in the market previous machines have ignored. Businesses that would benefit from using air cushions but couldn’t justify the expense previously have been introduced to the Mini Air, the lowest priced air cushion unit in the UK, retailing at just £599.
Air cushions are used as protective packaging and as well as the machine itself, Kite has developed a range of six different air cushion types, to service all types of applications. These include quilted cushions which provide an excellent alternative to bubble wrap and act as a superb lining for corrugated boxes, which are particularly useful for packing fruit and vegetables for retail. Larger air cushions for void fill and corner protection are also available.
Cost efficiency is a key focus for Mini Air, retailing at £400 less than existing air cushion systems in the market. The rolls of film required to produce the cushions are also significantly cheaper than competitors, a huge advantage for small and large retailers who need to protect their goods, and for many will mean that air pouches are an economically viable void fill alternative for the first time.
To help customers as much as possible with making an informed decision about the Mini Air machine, Kite has developed a price comparison tool feature which allows users to input their void fill usage and material and generate a calculation of the cost savings made when switching to air cushions. The application has shown a potential 85% saving on void fill material costs.
The Mini Air machine is no bigger than an average printer, a huge advantage for warehouses where space is at a premium. The rolls of air cushion film arrive flat, taking up very little space, and can be run without assistance, dispensing air cushions into a container for packers. Producing 7 metres of air cushions per minute, it can be used to control the packing process. The perforated cushions allow for a select number of cushions used per carton or packing method – a good basis for working out packaging budgets.
The CE certified Mini Air System is quality guaranteed and testing has been carried out on both the machine and all types of film. A 12 month warranty is included from the day of purchase.
