New Speed Feeder™ From Fp International Improves Packing Speed, Reduces Material Use

FP International introduces the SPEED FEEDER, industry’s fastest inflatable packaging dispenser at 180 LF per minute. The SPEED FEEDER works with the CELL-O® EZ air cushion machine, automatically delivering air cushions into shipping cartons.
Dec. 1, 2009 - PRLog -- Redwood City, CA -- FP International, a leading manufacturer of sustainable packing solutions, has introduced the SPEED FEEDER™ Air Cushion Delivery System to help operators pack faster. The SPEED FEEDER works synergistically with the company’s CELL-O® EZ air cushion machine, automatically separating (at the perforation) then delivering EZ Double Cushion™ air cushions directly into shipping cartons. Using the new SPEED FEEDER, at 180 LF per minute, operators can pack faster and surpass the speed of any automatic case sealer on the market.

“The SPEED FEEDER Air Cushion Delivery System eliminates the need to manually separate cushions, which optimizes packing speeds,” said Michael Kaminski, FP International Senior Vice President, Worldwide Engineering and R&D.  “Our customers realize 50 percent faster packing speeds than other air cushion systems and reduced material usage with our new SPEED FEEDER, compared with their previous packing system,” he added.

Other SPEED FEEDER benefits include ease of use, flexibility and portability.  The new FP System is programmable to yield strings of a set number of cushions, or a single, continuous cushion string without the packer having to manually tear the cushions. A foot pedal override feature also lets the operator fill a larger box without a permanent setting change.  

“The SPEED FEEDER is set on rollers which make it easy to move, as needed, to any packing line in the facility,” added Kaminski.  

The SPEED FEEDER Air Cushion Delivery System is available now.
