Bubble Wrap Inflator Provides Cushioning

A new compact and lightweight inflatable packaging system has been launched by SEE to provide medium-throughput businesses with on-demand cushioning and wrapping that contains a minimum of 30% recycled content*.

The Bubble Wrap® Inflator has been specifically designed for smaller operations, where workspace is at premium. At the press of a button, the system can produce BUBBLE WRAP® brand bubble materials on-demand at speeds of up to 24 metres per minute, reducing the need to dedicate valuable space to storing protective packaging materials.

Further workspace is saved by the system’s small footprint, which measures 43.2cm long, by 30.5cm wide and 54.6cm high.

Andrea Questa, Fulfilment Marketing Manager EMEA at SEE, commented: “The Bubble Wrap® Inflator is the ideal ready-to-wrap solution for lower-volume businesses that want to make their packaging easy and efficient, without compromising on protective performance. Operators can simply inflate high-quality packaging when they need it.

“The system is plug and play, and can be quickly set up on a bench, wall mounted or integrated into existing pack stations. It weighs less than 13kg and doesn’t require any compressed air to create inflatable cushioning and wrapping. This can help to reduce maintenance requirements and increase system uptime.”

Lightweight inflatable packaging

A simple user interface is used to operate the new system, meaning there’s little or no training required. The interface also provides preventative maintenance alerts to notify of servicing.

The Bubble Wrap® Inflator is designed to run a range of different grades of Bubble Wrap IB® films including medium, large and extra-large bubble sized films, which contain a minimum of 30% recycled content and are compatible with mechanical recycling streams of LDPE*.

On-demand cushioning and wrapping

Questa added: “The new Inflator can run all grades of Bubble Wrap IB® films, including regular, premium and extreme, at a maximum uninflated width of 40cm. These capabilities mean the system and films are ideal for producing cushioning and wrapping for small and medium-sized products of varying weights and fragility. Due to its flexibility, we expect the Bubble Wrap® Inflator to appeal to a broad range of omni-channel businesses and fulfilment providers, from those packaging cosmetics, right through to automotive and industrial components, homewares, office supplies and electronics.”

*Degree of recyclability of the final package depends on the specific product configuration or components intended for recycling and the scope and availability of appropriate local recycling facilities.
