  • Excellent Film Memory

The Situation

Bulk bubble wrap was space and time consuming

A certain company was using bulk bubble wrap for shipment which took up a significant amount of space and was not returning appropriate profit for effort.

  • Company tried inflatable bubble but found it to be too slow and too mechanical.
  • The rolls of bubble forced the company to stock it taking up more storage space and causing more deliveries.
  • The company knew they needed a more efficient way of cushioning its products for shipment.

The Solution

Utilizing the HC Autoflow dispenser

Create a HC Autoflow dispenser/slitter as a companion to the AirSpeed hybrid cushioning unit.

  • The unit is designed to pull the film apart at perf line, thereby losing none of the cushioning rows.
  • What used to be truckload deliveries every few days will now only be a few skids per month.
  • The rolls now take up significantly less space in storage.
  • The end result has dramatically impacted logistics, freight, storage, production efficiency, labor and product protection.
