Americas: Matrix Packaging Machinery showcases fresh produce solutions at show


Matrix Packaging Machinery, powered by Pro Mach, features packaging solutions for the fresh produce industry at United Fresh 2016, June 20-22 at McCormick Place, Chicago.

The solutions are for packing produce and condiments in film bags, pre-made pouches, rollstock pouches, and stickpacks and sachets.

The Morpheus continuous motion form fill seal machine on display is reportedly rated at up to 180 bags per minute and features automatic setup capabilities that reduce changeover time and lead to higher productivity.

The Morpheus offers a small footprint to conserve floor space, servo control for precise motion, and ProTech by Pro Mach – the remote tech support and overall equipment effectiveness monitoring service.

Morpheus machines run films that require longer seal times, making these units ideal for applications such as frozen, fresh cut, and individually quick frozen foods.

Automatic setup removes the potential for operator error, helps to improve package quality, and decreases changeover time.

Meanwhile, the Toyo Jidoki TT-8D-N pre-made pouch fill and seal machine is designed for stand-up, flat bottom, and fifth-panel style bags.

The machine is rated at up to 55 flat, standup, and press-to-close pouches per minute.

It is easy to clean and wash down.

Options and accessories include date printer, air squeeze device and nitrogen gas flush.

Lastly, the compact, modular, and robust Inever BY300 multi-lane stickpack machine is ideal for low-to-medium production of quality stickpack seals of powders, granules, solids, liquids, and pastes.

Output ranges from 150 stickpacks per minute for a three-lane operation to 350 per minute with seven lanes.

The BY300 features PLC control, brushless servo motors, and a touch screen HMI.

The machine’s rugged ergonomic design lends itself to easy cleaning and low maintenance. Available options include patented ‘built-in’ Laser device for easy opening pre-cut, laser or ink jet hot foil printing and thermo printers.
