Available in six different sizes, Rapid Fill air bags have a one-way valve that allows air in but not out. A single operator clips the air bag to the inside corner of the carton, folds the carton flaps, and sends it through the case sealer. The carton briefly stops while traveling through the sealer, and air is automatically injected through the carton and into the air bag. The system uses sensory technology to measure the exact amount of air needed to fill the void in the carton. Minimal operator involvement increases productivity while decreasing the risk of damage.
