Matrix’s product line-up will include:

Matrix’s MVC-300 continuous box-motion bagger (shown) features the latest high performance servo system for unprecedented precision motion control. Together this allows users to run a variety of films at faster speeds and with better accuracy. The MVC-300 features enhanced remote connectivity for service, updates, and diagnostic capabilities without danger of facility firewall compromise.

The MVC-300 uses a continuous-motion, high-speed jaw system that is unique from other vf/f/s machines because the film never stops. The jaw system cuts the film and provides just enough dwell time for the three bag seams to properly seal. This innovative feature allows users to achieve higher fill rates.

At the show the MVC-300 will be paired with a Yamato scale and mezzanine to package small pillow bags of candy. The candy will be packaged using film from CL&D, a ProMach brand.

The second packaging line demonstration will feature the Matrix Mercury, a high-speed vf/f/s bagger that can fill up to 140 bags/min. The Mercury is known for its easy operation and quick changeover and setup. It can accommodate bag widths between 2.5 in. and 11 in., and bag lengths between 3 in. and 15 in. The Mercury is a great cost-effective packaging solution as it features a small footprint, stainless-steel frame, automatic film tracking, a registered film sensor, and more.

The Mercury is teaming up with a case former and erector from Wexxar Bel, a ProMach brand. Together, with a cup filler from Spee-Dee, the line will fill bags of candy, and those bags will be packed and sealed on the Wexxar Bel system.

The Elete Premier 18/20 vf/f/s is a high-performance, totally configurable solution for large bags that is ideal for customers who require more hygienic attributes in their packaging machine. It offers an 18 in. web width and up to 20 in. in length and features a stainless steel, sanitary design with all major components, including fasteners, bearings, shafts, and motors suitable for washdown environments. The machine can produce several different bag shapes, such as pillow, gusset, and flat bottom with a variety of films, including recyclable, at filling rates up to 100 bags/min.

The Elete Premier also comes in a smaller 13/15 version to produce bags with a 13 in. wide web width and up to 15 in. long. At the show, the Elete Premier 18/20 will be able to show pillow or gusseted bags.

The Pacraft TT-8D-N, from Pacraft (formerly known as Toyo Jidoki), is a pre-made pouch filler/sealer designed for a wide variety of packaging applications. Its pouch formats and product types include flat, stand-up, retort, and press-to-close pouch styles. It can seal up to 55 pouches/min; pouch sizes range from 4.72 in. to 10.23 in. (120 - 260mm), lengths from 5.11 in. to 15.74 in. (130 – 400mm). Matrix will be running regular resistant as well as recyclable pouches.

The MVA12 from INVpack is a vf/f/s multilane machine produces flat sachets. It is designed for high production output filling liquids, powders, granulates, and pasty products. Ideal markets include food, cosmetics, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals. The MVA12 brings great flexibility in terms of sachet style formats and is capable of forming sachets with two different compartments already pre-cut and the ability to charge the sachet lengths through the touchscreen HMI.
