FP International’s new PILLOW PAK’R system converts 760 mm wide film into air cushions on demand to wrap your large products or to be used as a combination of wrap/void fill/protection.
The PILLOW PAK’R system is fast, up to 22 mtr per minute, and the roll is perforated every 18.5 cm for maximum packing flexibility. These packaging machines use an internal air source, no compressed air is needed.
A PILLOW PAK’R machine is easy to use and can be placed next to a pack station for on-demand packaging materials. The system is available with accessories to provide you integrated (in-line) solutions.
PILLOW PAK’R packaging machines use FP International’s patented air transfer technology; it allows air to move between cells providing cushioning and high protective packaging standards.

Unlike traditional packaging materials, PILLOW PAK film offers much better cushioning properties due to the air transfer technology. No more bulky rolls of bubble to transport, handle or take up valuable storage space. Simply make packaging materials as you need it.
2 pallets of PILLOW PAK film are equivalent to 1 full truck load of Bubble.

PILLOW PAK is made on demand, creating fresh bubble: reduces clutter at pack stations and saves time.
Cost savings especially if bubble is wrapped around the product more than once. PILLOW PAK only requires 1 wrap!
