New accessories for the NOVUS air cushion system, a packing system that provides air cushions as fast as packers can use them, are now available from FP International. A new, pneumatic machine stand that raises and lowers for film loading, and an optional dispensing arm attached directly to the NOVUS machine provide a completely automated setup. These new accessories can save valuable floor space and make air cushion handling faster.
To begin, a sonic sensor keys cushion production. Air cushions are moved from the machine over a conveyor belt directly above cartons on a conveyor line. An optional Pre-Tear Unit makes tearing a string of air cushions easier and quicker for the packer. With the NOVUS system, packers have air cushions always available, allowing high-speed packing.
Using unique, pre-configured films, the NOVUS machine makes four different cushion shapes that can be used for void fill, to wrap corners and to replace traditional bubble material.
