With PAPERplus Dragonfly, Storopack is expanding its protective paper packaging portfolio. Based on the technology of the popular PAPERplus Papillon machine, it is designed for efficient void filling. Adjustable to three different speeds to suit the operators’ packing comfort, PAPERplus Dragonfly produces between 160 and 200 feet of extra wide crimped paper pads per minute, rapidly filling the box to hold down and secure goods for shipment. It’s the only machine on the packaging market with a variable cushion density feature to create paper pads with adjustable volume as needed. This allows for optimal pack integrity in medium to large parcels weighing between approximately 11 and 22 pounds.
“PAPERplus Dragonfly is different, innovative and performs better than any other machine on the market,” says Paul Deis, PAPER Product Manager at Storopack. “There is no other system that can produce paper packaging with a comparable ‘fluffy’ volume. This reduces the amount of paper used in a box but still provides the best protection for the product.” Like PAPERplus Papillon, Dragonfly is very safe to operate: with no cutting system, the machine’s sophisticated gears separate the paper. As with other PAPERplus machines, it can easily be incorporated into existing packing processes. The consumable is a two-ply fan-folded paper available in two densities and two bundle lengths, including a continuous feed bulk pallet option for larger volumes.
PAPERplus Dragonfly will be available in Asia-Pacific starting in April.
