Protective Packaging & Void Fill

Inflatable cushioning systems are easy to use, customizable, and effective. Depending on your packaging needs, you can produce air pillows or other inflatable films with an automated, on-demand cushioning system.

  • Air pillows are great for product protection through the shipping cycle. Inflatable pillows are easy to use and are typically the most cost-effective solution for void fill.
  • Inflatable bubble prevents products from migrating inside the box. These sheets, which can be wrapped around the product or layered into the package, are perfect for damage reduction for fragile items.

Air cushioning machines make pillows and cushions by feeding and guiding pre-made film through the system, inflating it, and sealing the inflation site so the air cannot escape. On-demand systems help reduce space needed for void fill and cushioning products on the warehouse floor.
Paper solutions and on-demand paper systems can be used to fill void in shipping cartons or can be coiled to cushion and used for blocking and bracing. Paper systems are easy to use, operator friendly, and effective. In paper void equipment, paper is fed directly into the equipment and then dispensed by the operator or at pre-determined lengths for void fill.

Case/Carton Erectors

Case erectors are an automated solution that forms cases for packaging products. Case handling equipment reduces the amount of labor needed to erect and seal cases, providing a reduction in labor costs and increase in productivity.

At New-Tech, we engineer the erector to match your operation. Erectors can be standalone or can integrate seamlessly with your existing packaging line. Customizations include ultra-compact systems, robotic options, sanitary washdown units for food industry, and high-speed erectors.

Customizable Workstations

Customizable, ergonomic workstations are designed to improve employee comfort and increase productivity for employees who perform repetitive tasks like order fulfillment and packaging.

At New-Tech Packaging, we are proud to offer BOSTONtec and Dehnco workstations. These stations meet the American National Standards Institute/Human Factors Engineering guidelines for safety on the job. They are easily tilted, lifted, rotated, and stored for optimal flexibility and are customizable to meet the needs of the production or packaging line.

foam in place packaging

Foam-in-Place Systems

Foam-in-place systems automatically produce foam on demand to protect your product during the shipping cycle. These machines are simple to use, ideal for irregularly shaped and fragile items, and can even protect heavy, bulky products.

Foam-in-place polyurethane is molded in real-time by combining two liquid foams in a high-density polyethylene bag, film, or pre-fabricated mold. The mixture expands rapidly around the product, creating a custom protective shell.

automated shrink bundling machine

Shrink Bundling Machines

Shrink bundling machines allow you to automate enclosing, protecting, and even bundling your products in protective film. With automatic shrink wrapping and bundling, you can cut down on labor costs, prevent costly mistakes, and get products out the door faster. 

Automatic shrink wrappers provide some unique benefits when compared to manual wrapping, including:

  • More attractive and consistent packaging as well as greater seal strength, improving the overall package appearance. 
  • Lower material costs due to the ability to downgauge film and reduce the amount of film scrap.
  • Reduced labor costs and higher throughput. 
  • Higher productivity with inline side-seal machines that have speeds of 60 to 100 packages per minute.

New-Tech also provides shrink tunnels, sleeve wrappers, and stretch sleeve machines.

strapping machine for packaging

Strapping Systems

Strapping systems provide both automatic and semi-automatic solutions that are designed to enhance efficiency for both steel and plastic strapping. There are several banding solutions available based on volume, throughput speed, and size of product banded.  New-Tech offers hand-held battery tools, arch machines, bayonet machines, and fully automated systems designed to work in-line with your production flow.

Stretch Wrappers

New-Tech offers a full line of automatic and semi-automatic stretch wrap pallet packaging solutions. Replacing the manual application of hand film to a pallet with automation will increase the speed of wrapping, improve load unitization, and reduce the cost of stretch film. Stretch wrap equipment simply does a better job than people at consistently wrapping loads to wrap standards, decreasing the opportunity for damage during the ship cycle.

automated taping machine


Automatic tapers, or carton sealers, apply the correct amount of tape in an attractive application, reducing labor costs and material costs. In addition, carton sealers increase production and eliminate material waste. Selecting the proper carton sealer is important, taking into account:

  • Size of the box
  • Top and/or bottom sealer required
  • Same size or different size boxes
  • Type of tape applied
  • Volume and throughput speed
