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