Since their introduction in recent years, air-cushion
packages have been quickly adopted for use in color cosmetic products such as foundations, BB creams and CC creams.
But it's time to take the air-cushioned
vehicle from the realm of scientific marvel into that of utilitarian workhorse, says William Kirby, chief executive officer of Gimbal Craft in Fairfield, Iowa.
It was the idea of Klaus Maertens, a German soldier who hurt his foot during the Second World War and thought the remedy to pain when he walked would be an air-cushioned
During Friday's drills, the air-cushion
landing craft also ferried to shore several vehicles, including trucks and ambulances, the officials said.
The company believes its new Bubble Film, which allows customers to produce air-cushion
sheets in-house, is among its most successful innovations in the area of flexible protective packaging.
EVA is multifunctional but is mainly used in the production of air-cushion
shoes, leisure shoes, agriculture-use sheds, packaging films for solar panels, and heat glues.
Mounted on the layflat, the Profile Sensor, a redesign of an earlier air-cushion
gap technology, floats a constant distance off the film on air pressure.
pressure is regulated to match the pressure inside the bubble (0.1-0.5 psi).
But the cast has come off and I am now in an air-cushioned
The BAH and BVP units are pneumatic single-shot air hammer and direct or air-cushioned
low frequency piston type industrial vibrators, respectively.
