Empack 2016 | Kite Packaging takes show’s largest ever stand

Kite Packaging is taking the largest stand ever seen by Easyfairs, alongside Audion Swissvac, and will also be launching a range of new products to the UK market.


Gavin Ashe, Managing Partner at Kite Packaging said: “Kite Packaging sees Empack as one of the main events at which to showcase its new packaging systems, and so made the strategic decision to invest in a large stand.”

Kite Packaging and Audion Swissvac will occupy a huge 104 Sq. metre space showcasing an impressive range of new and existing machinery.

Headline products include Kite Packaging’s new PaperJet System, an automated paper cushion delivery system which is comfortably the fastest paper cushion system on the market. On a continuous run, the system produces a market leading number of metres, when using Kites FanFold paper material on a pallet thus simplifying and reducing loading intervals.

Incorporating the PaperJet with Kites hopper basket system gives the option to feed numerous packers with environmentally friendly paper cushion void fill material. The system comprises a single PaperJet machine, a conveyor and two overhead hopper baskets.

The SpeedMan Pro, Kites new automated paper filling system is designed with efficiency and speed in mind. Operated with a foot pedal, a continuous speed adjustment is possible and for greater flexibility, a mobile battery version can be used.

SpeedMan Classic, Kites new maintenance free, void filling paper dispenser, can easily be transported to different locations as it requires no electricity. Once integrated into a packing station it is a great space saving machine.

Kites new incredibly fast Auto Airshock machine runs up to 480 cushions an hour and is unique to Kite Packaging. Never before seen in the UK, this innovative machine significantly reduces labour and increases the amount of Airshock inflated.

Finally Kites new 5×5 system, will be showcased. The hand dispenser system offers consistent and optimised pallet wrapping giving improved puncture resistance. The unique design of the pre-stretch roller provides maximum efficiency for hand wrapping meaning less stock needs to be carried.

The UK packaging supplier is said to be the only employee-owned business in the packaging sector, providing solutions to a variety of customers. Its service offering for large accounts is a combination of bespoke packaging designs, consolidated stock product lines and high-level service solutions, operating from six branch locations across the UK and with expertise in all industry sectors including food, e-commerce and retail.

Kite also operates ‘the fastest growing online business in the packaging industry’, where smaller businesses can purchase competitively priced stock product from over 2,500 lines.
