Manufacturer of protective packaging, FP International, focuses on offering their customers new and efficient solutions. Within the attractive segment of air cushion systems and films, they now introduce the PRO PAK’R: the reliable air cushion system that stands out from the crowd. At first the machine will be released on the German market in March 2014, and from there on in other EU-countries. In November, during the trade show EMBALLAGE in Paris Nord Villepinte, FP International presents the PRO PAK’R to the public. "This machine features the latest technology, only offered by FP International. The PRO PAK’R is fast, smart, easy to operate, and takes up little space,” says Pierre Vu, PRO PAK’R project manager. "Another major advantage: the PRO PAK’R operates with various films.”
Easy and fast
FP International has been the European leader in the field of air cushions for years. For them, it is obvious why: "We are one step ahead of the market. Mainly because that’s the way we can offer state of the art solutions to our clients, “ explains Vu "The Pro PAK’R facilitates and accelerates the everyday work of our customers significantly, thanks to our high end developed extras and new features. The machine of only 16 kilograms produces no less than 21 meters of cushion per minute. All existing machines on the field will be replaced by PRO PAK’Rs in the coming years, at no cost for our customers. This is the first time ever that on the protective packaging market that the whole installed base will be upgraded with the latest technology.”
Thanks to RFID, used by the PRO PAK’R to recognize the variety of films, you only have to set up the machine once. The air cushion system stores all historical data on a USB stick for future reference. Pierre Vu: “This unique feature has various benefits: an improved reliability as servicing the machine is made easier, more efficient and optimized machine utilization as history data can tell how the machine has been operated.” The machine can be expanded with different accessories, ranging from a foot pedal and remote control, to a system stand and an overhead dispenser. As an additional service, FP International has developed state-of-the-art computer graphic videos, with clear step by step explanations of the machine itself, its use and maintenance. Packaging with air cushions has never been this easy.
