This combo kit of die-cut paper and strong steel dispensing equipment is a great alternative to messy, wasteful or hard-to-recycle packaging materials like packing peanuts, bubble wrap, air packs, foam balls, or old newspapers. And you don’t need any special installations like compressed air or overhead dispenser bins to use it, so it’s perfect for companies from 1-maker-in-a-room up to 10,000-packages-a-day-in-a-warehouse.
The most common packaging materials folks use are also the most annoying to transport: packing peanuts and bubble wrap ship pre-inflated so they’re massive. Even if they’re light, they still take up a lot of space! there are more compact systems like inflate-on-demand sealed air pillows, but now you need special air system which costs $1000’s and is probably quite loud during operation.
In comparison, the Cushion Lock ships as a dense roll of die-cut paper, 1000 foot rolls can ship UPS ground from Digi-Key and arrive in a few days. When loaded into the dispenser, the paper expands as you pull, and the die cut has li’l saw-teeth that grabs onto itself when wrapped to keep the 3D matrix ‘puffy’.
It looks like the Geami stuff that Digi-Key includes as a free cat toy with each order, but bulkier.
Best of all, you don’t need to talk to a sales rep or sign a contract to get started – both the 3M Scotch Cushion Lock Dispenser and rolls of 3M Scotch Cushion Lock Protective Wrap are in stock for immediate shipment!
