Matrix Packaging Machinery, powered by Pro Mach, launches the Mercury HS, a form-fill-seal machine capable of speeds up to 140 bags per minute depending on the application. The moderately priced Mercury HS is the highest selling Matrix form-fill-seal machine due to its speed, dependability, and low annual operating cost – less than $1,000 per year.

The Mercury HS forms, fills, and seals bags with widths ranging from 1.75 to 11 inches (44 to 280 mm) and lengths from 2.5 to 15.00 inches (60 to 390 mm). Standard features include stainless steel construction, Matrix “SmartJaw” ST horizontal sealing technology, color touch screen operator panel, English/Spanish operator interface, and an Allen Bradley MicroLogix PLC control system. Compared to other high speed machines, the Mercury has a small footprint, which helps to conserve valuable floor space.

Each Mercury HS offers a self-centering film drive down system, automatic edge guide film tracking, and short travel, angled incline film upwind, all of which contribute to precise film movement and trouble free operation. Tool-free quick-change core chucks help to ensure fast changeover between jobs.

Matrix is showing the Mercury HS integrated with the new Yamato Omega multi-head weigher. The Omega ensures high-speed precise weighing for greater accuracy, minimum product waste, and maximum throughput and profitability. The Omega consumes 60 percent less power compared to previous generation weighers for lower cost, more sustainable operation. The Omega features tooless changeover for removal of buckets and linear feeder pans.

“Whether the need is for a replacement machine or for a new line, the Mercury HS is unmatched in overall value of price and performance,” said Marc Willden, vice president and general manager, Matrix Packaging Machinery. “If co-packers and brand owners have different specifications in terms of speed, bag size, and cost, Matrix offers more than a dozen different standard models, and one of those solutions will work.”

A video of the Mercury HS is available.
