Introducing the Worlds Most Compact Paper Cushion Machine

We are pleased to introduce the Protega Machine 125, creating paper cushions that are designed to excel in product protection, reduce waste and help contribute to a greener environment.

We have spent the last few years perfecting a machine that produces a paper cushion that compresses less than any other alternative of the same size. This simply means you can minimise the use of resources to protect your products.

The Protega Machine is smaller than any other paper cushion machine on the market which means it can be easily deployed directly on a packing bench, moved around your despatch area, or even elevated to the optimum height to dispense cushions into an integrated overhead hopper system.

The machine has been designed and built by Protega Global in the UK to rigorous quality standards, and is supported out in the field by our in-house engineers.

Protega Global is a family run business, accredited to the ISO9000 Quality System, and the ISO14000 Environmental standard.

We are also pleased to announce that we have now achieved FSC certification which guarantees our paper is sourced responsibly!

The ‘Protega’ is a unique desktop paper machine producing high volume ‘on demand’ protective paper packaging. The footprint of the slimline Protega is not much larger than a desktop printer and fits easily into even the smallest despatch areas, the size of this machine is one of the main
reasons our clients have chosen Protega to integrate into their packaging operation.

The Protega paper cushion is both robust and easily mouldable. Because off the way the Protega Paper is creased and camped it secures and cushions your products, absorbing shock and eliminating movement in transit.

With multiple packing techniques, the Protega paper cushion can protect all shapes and sized products, varying from fragile glasses to large and heavy industrial equipment. The benefits of the Protega Machine is not only its reliable production of paper cushion but also that the paper is 100% biodegradable, 100% compostable, 100% recyclable & is made up of 100% recycled paper.

Daniel Willock, from Protega Global marketing team said “We are thrilled with the success of our Protega Paper machine, it has been a great effort from our UK development team to come up with such a brilliant innovation. I think sustainability is a growing concern for many businesses but with the burden of product protection it’s tricky to make the switch away from plastics, but no sacrifice is made when switching from plastics to our paper cushion – the performance of our paper significantly outperforms plastic packaging and reduces breakages.

Our goal is to help businesses make the switch from any type of plastic to the more ecofriendly paper packaging where possible. The environment is on everyone’s radar and has been for a while, with our dedicated installation team, friendly account managers and packing station integration we can help businesses make the switch with ease.”

Protega Global has a vision to develop a range of paper packaging materials that reduce our reliance on plastic-based packaging, which is harming wildlife and polluting the environment in which we, and our children, work and play.

Protega Globals mission is to provide sustainable paper packaging that is designed to maximise take-up, by decreasing companies operational costs, reducing breakages in transit and improving companies brand image.

Protega Global is working to achieve an end result where your products arrive with your client in pristine condition, with the added extra of adding the ‘wow’ factor in the open box experience.
