Improved protection of sensitive goods

Storopack introduces the FOAMplus® Bagpacker²



Cincinnati – Storopack, the specialist in protective packaging with international headquarters in Metzingen, Germany, is introducing an improved version of its FOAMplus® Bagpacker packaging system to the market: the FOAMplus® Bagpacker². It is an on-demand foam-in-bag system designed to protect sensitive goods during shipping – regardless of size or weight.



Storopack’s FOAMplus® foam cushions flexibly adapt to the goods to be packaged and are suitable for shipping sensitive items of all sizes. The two-component foam packaging, which is produced directly at the packing station, protects shipping items in a way that is individualized and of very high quality. The Bagpacker² foam cushions are produced by the packer using a foam-in-bag system, whereby a film pouch is filled with foam dispensed from a machine developed by Storopack.



The FOAMplus® Bagpacker² is a more advanced version of the widely used FOAMplus® Bagpacker system. Storopack has replaced the hydraulic unit with a modern electric drive. The new sealing unit closes the bag with enhanced reliability, ensuring that the foam and product are more effectively separated. Storopack developed the system’s underlying software. Through the use of a barcode and programmable process sequences, the system ensures high-level reliability and cost transparency. The machine is equipped with a new 10-inch display featuring several additional functions. It’s available as a table model or a stand-alone unit with adjustable height. The Bagpacker2 can easily be integrated into a customer’s inline process.



The FOAMplus® Bagpacker² is exceptionally versatile and delivers on-demand production of a variety of packaging solutions. The system is designed for use with three different film sizes: 18“ and 24“ width films. It can be used by small, mid-sized or large shipping companies. The FOAMplus® Bagpacker² produces up to 23 foam-filled cushions per minute. The system is remarkably user-friendly and robust – keeping maintenance requirements to a minimum. The protective packaging is especially suitable for products such as valves, pumps, measuring tools or medical devices.
