Sealed Air has launched a new packaging-material delivery solution that integrates into an existing packaging line. The Sealed Air Quick Shot Delivery Solution fully integrates with Sealed Air's Fill-Air 2000 and Fill-Air Cyclone inflatable void-fill systems. The solution speeds delivery of the void-fill bag by using an unique "tug" feature that provides more bags with less motion and input required from operators. This improvement allows operators to to pack more per day with less effort, according to Sealed Air.
The Quick Shot Delivery Solution works by getting Fill-Air cushions from a bin fed by a Fill-Air 2000 or Fill-Air Cyclone system and delivering them directly into boxes on the packing line. Operators adjust the bag replenishment dial to begin. This establishes the number of bags that the system will automatically replenish after the operator tears or tugs on the bag chain. If the operator sets the system up to replenish four bags and he or she tears four bags from the chain, the system will automatically advance four more bags to be ready for the next carton. In the instance that the operator needs more than the four bags, he or she gives a slight tug on the side of the bag chain to deliver the additional desired number. The easy-to-use solution is designed to be ergonomic for operators.
Because the new solution has a small footprint, it takes up little valuable floor space, while providing a truly integrated packaging line solution, says Sealed Air. The Quick Shot Delivery Solution can run any of Sealed Air's film sizes, including a new film developed specifically for this solution, which reduces the effort to separate the bags from the chain by 50 percent.
