Pack Tiger™ - Paper Cushioning System

The Pack Tiger™ system features an easy-to-use control panel that stores up to 24 custom pad configurations. In manual mode, creating pads is as simple as pushing a button or foot pedal. The Pack Tiger™ system can also be run in automatic mode, using easy, one-touch access buttons for frequently-used pad configurations. The bottom-loading design creates fast material changeovers, getting you up and running in no time.

The Pack Tiger™ system creates custom-length paper pads, up to 150 per minute, for use in packaging techniques likes cushioning, blocking and bracing.

The Pack Tiger™ paper cushioning system provides environmental stewardship at every stage of the production process. TigerPad™ materials contain 85% post-industrial and 15% post-consumer recovered fibers equaling 100% recycled fiber. End-users can easily reuse or recycle the TigerPad™ material upon receipt of shipment, saving on natural resources. A patented, single-motor design reduces power consumption as compared to other paper systems resulting in greater energy conservation. Since the paper is lofted, strong and durable, less material is required to provide "more" protective packaging performance for a wide variety of product applications.

Pac Master

Turn old boxes into FREE packaging material in just one pass!

Economical and reliable, the special PacMaster technique converts empty corrugated boxes into "free" large-volume filler material suitable for packing even sensitive goods for transport. Best of all - it's EASY TO USE and there is no cost to dispose of empty corrugated boxes!

The corrugated boxes are simply cut to the required format in the preliminary cutter. The working surface has standard size guides marked on it and along with the sliding guide, accurate cutting is guaranteed. The strips are then fed into the inlet where specially patented cutting shafts turn them into bulky packing mats.

  • Lockable main switch also acts as an emergency stop
  • Rotary knobs control On/Off and Reverse functions
  • Built-in cutter to cut your boxes down to size
  • Optional vacuum kit available

The Geämi Protective Packaging System

The Geämi Sustainable Protective Packaging System consists of three components:
  • The Geämi and tissue interleaf papers;
  • The Auto Dispenser and
  • Customer Focused Service & Support, courtesy of Direct Solutions.
Together, this system approach creates a unique process that can fulfill your need for a cost effective, environmentally responsible in-the-box packaging solution.

Geämi Paper

The Geämi Paper is available with recycled and non-recycled content in Natural Kraft and non-recycled content in White. The rolls are produced using 50 lbs. basis weight Kraft paper and are 20" wide x 1000' (expands to approximately 1550').

Geämi tissue interleaf

The Geämi tissue interleaf contains recycled content and is available in both white and Beige. The rolls are produced using 15 lbs. basis weight tissue paper and are 12" wide x 2400'.

The Geämi auto dispenser

The Geämi and Interleaf papers are fed through the auto dispenser using a foot-pedal switch. Operators are able to control both the amount and the speed of the paper being dispensed.

As the Geämi paper passes through the auto dispenser, it is expanded into a 3-dimensional web of angled cells. The tissue interleaf is then added to create a resilient, cost effective packaging material that is produced on-demand, as needed.
