At the PACK EXPO East (Philadelphia, Mar 18-20, 2024), Matrix Packaging Machinery, part of the ProMach Flexibles & Trays business line, will demonstrate Engilicoā€™s SealScopeĀ® seal inspection solution on a PACRAFT TT-8D-N pouch packaging machine at Booth #1127.

The sealing of flexible and rigid packages is a crucial step in many food packaging processes. Product in seal, wrinkles, pleats, or folds can lead to imperfectly closed packages with an immediate negative effect on shelf life, customer satisfaction, and even brand image. An in-line, 100% seal inspection system tackles these challenges.

SealScopeĀ® is an easy-to-integrate and non-destructive in-line seal inspection and process monitoring technology for flexible packages such as pouches, VFFS bags, flow wrappers, etc. The SealScopeĀ® system uses sensors mounted on the sealing bars to detect undesired product in the seal or folds, which can lead to open packages. Every produced package is instantly compared to a reference seal and when sealing errors are detected, the defective packages are automatically ejected from the conveyor belt. In addition to inspecting every individual product, SealScopeĀ® also monitors the quality of the complete packaging process. By issuing early warning signals when the sealing process is drifting, operators can execute proactive maintenance to avoid unplanned production stops.

At PACK EXPO East 2024, SealScopeĀ® is demonstrated on a PACRAFT TT-8D-N pre-made pouch, filler/sealer, suited to fill and seal a variety of products at high speeds. But, the in-line seal inspection also can be retrofitted to VFFS baggers, including models such as the Matrix Mercury or MVC, HFFS packaging machines from Bartelt and Ossid, or (long dwell/ box-motion) flow wrappers from Reepack.

"As Matrix is the master distributor of the PACRAFT pouch packaging machines and Engilico recently joined the PACRAFT group, it is a logical step to introduce this innovative seal inspection solution at our shows," says Christine Duncan, Marketing Director, for the ProMach Flexibles and Trays Business Line. ā€œIt is a very interesting technology that can help our customers to improve packaging quality and productivity.ā€
