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 and little or no training required.
Cushions used in conjunction with the Mini Air machine:
Filler Cushions - Filler cushions are the ideal solution for cushioning and void fill and can be used as a great alternative to loose fill, bubble wrap and many other packaging materials.
Wrapper Tube Film - Wrapper tube film is ideal for corner protection, blocking and bracing, layering and also for void fill.
Wrapper Quilt Film - Wrapper quilt film is the ideal solution for wrapping, layering and interleaving.
