The Mini Air system is an innovative, multi-use packaging solution that creates air cushions on demand. The machine is easy to operate, with minimum set up.

Air cushions can be used as a great alternative to loose fill, bubble wrap and many other packaging materials.

New June 2016: Our ‘Wrapper quilt small’, on the table above, is now supplied in extra length rolls meaning less roll changes are require, making your packing operation more efficient. Each roll is now 450mtrs in length (previously ‘wrapper quilt small’ were 300metre rolls). The new length rolls are also manufactured from a high performance film, improving the overall strength and performance of the air cushions.


Best value void fill solution

The benefits of air cushions over traditional void fill materials are numerous:

  • Cost efficient:
    1 roll of Filler Mini Air cushions is equivalent to about 15 bags of loose fill chips or 10 rolls of large bubble wrap*
  • Space-saving:
    As they are inflated on demand, air bags take up much less storage space than loose fill chips or bubble wrap
  • Presentable:
    Air bags are less messy than loose fill and are a more presentable way to protect your product
  • Versatile:
    One machine can be used to produce different types of cushion for void fill, corner protection, wrapping and more

Easy to use machine

The Mini Air machine is simple to set up and use, with little or no training required. This is a desktop machine that takes up about the same amount of space as a printer. The built-in compressor means a separate air supply is not required, and it can be plugged straight into a 3-pin mains socket.

Full instructions on how to use the Mini Air machine can be found in the easy-to-follow handbook (click to download a PDF version), and our online video demonstrations show you how to do everything from starting up the machine to using air cushions.

The machine is virtually maintenance free, and includes a 12 month return-to-base warranty**.
