    Formax Greenwave 430 Freestanding Cardboard Perforator


    Greenwave 430

    Freestanding Perforator

    ·    Mobile unit can be moved from place to place using heavy-duty casters

    ·    Perforates at up to 40 feet/minute

    ·    Handles cardboard up to .79" thick

    ·    Trims cardboard up to 16.9" wide

    The Greenwave 430 Cardboard Perforator has the solution to help you transition away from single-use plastic and foam packing materials. This freestanding unit features heavy-duty casters allowing it to be moved easily from place to place.

    Operation is easy: choose the finished size of the packing materials, adjust the cutting guide, press start, and insert cardboard. The Greenwave 430 perforates the cardboard and trims the excess simultaneously. The trimmed piece can also be perforated, producing zero waste. The result is flexible, shock-absorbing netting which is easy to wrap around objects to provide protective cushioning during shipment. The perforated cardboard also ideal to fill spaces between the box and the product.

    The Greenwave 430 perforates cardboard at up to 40 feet per minute, up to 16.9” wide, and up to .79” thick. It can reduce the cost of purchasing shipping materials and waste hauling, while upgrading packaging material to a high-quality, sustainable alternative to foam peanuts, Styrofoam blocks or bubble wrap. It’s essentially producing free packaging material, and can promote a sustainable image to customers.

    Standard features include an all-metal cabinet, heavy-duty solid steel blades, rugged metal gearing, an easy-to-use measuring scale, and a molded plastic waste bin for collecting particles.

    Stop throwing away money with your cardboard. Perforate it with the Greenwave 430 and put it to work for you!

          We purchased this in order to reduce the use of plastic in our packaging. It works like a charm thank you so much!

          Chris T.

          This is a perfect solution for anyone who is eco-friendly. We usually have plenty of cardboard lying around, so why not use it instead of bubble wrap? A fantastic product for a great price and fast shipping. Highly recommended.

          Adam Loppe
          Best for packages

          I use it whenever I need to pad items for my clients (I am an Etsy seller). It is very fast, precise and helps save a lot of money! Very worth buying.

          Hannah Dixon
          No more plastic

          Finally thanks to this I can move on from bubble wrap and non-sustainable packaging materials. I am definitely going to recommend this to other business owners in my area that send products via post or courier!
