OVERVIEW

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

The H-4008 Instant Bubble Roll Machine creates on-demand air-filled cushioning material from a compact/uninflated pre-formed roll of material. The inflated material chain is perforated into sections and can easily be separated by the operator as needed.

There are 3 modes of operation:

MANUAL MODE

  • Press the start key to begin producing air-filled material and the stop key to end production.

BATCH MODE

  • Dispense a programmed length of inflated material.

ROLL WINDER MODE

  • Requires optional roll winder (H-4621) and stand (H-4620).
  • Dispense a roll of inflated material.

ELECTRICAL POWER REQUIREMENT

WARNING! Use of extension cord will increase the levels of static, resulting in operational problems.

Inflatable Cushioning System: 115 VAC
Receptacle Type: NEMA 5-15R
A/C Voltage: 100-120 VAC 50/60 Hz
Phase: Single Phase Grounded
Current: 15A Service 4.0A

NOTE: The use of non-Sealed Air materials will cause production problems, may damage the equipment and will reduce the quality of the packaging protection.
