SAUKVILLE, Wis., December 21, 2017 – At the 2018 Northwest Food & Beverage World, January 8-10, Oregon Convention Center, Portland, Ore., Matrix Packaging Machinery, a member of the ProMach family of brands, showcases for the first time in the Northwest its high speed Morpheus XL vertical form/fill/seal (vf/f/s) bagging machine, a new solution for accurately forming and filling narrow to extra wide bags at up to 120 units per minute on one compact platform.

Advanced engineering optimized the Morpheus XL for quality sealing at high speed on multiple film types, including film used in individually quick frozen (IQF) packaging. At the show, Matrix will simulate for show attendees the Morpheus XL bagging IQF foods. The Morpheus XL produces pillow and gusted bags from two inches wide all the way up to 15 inches. With its fast, precise changeover and broad range of bag sizes and types, a single Morpheus XL can replace two slower and older machines for significantly lower capital investment and reduced labor costs on the packaging line.

Matrix’s unique servo-based adjustment system AutoPro ensures fast, accurate, and trouble-free changeover – faster by a minimum of 50 percent over competitive machines. AutoPro gives processors and contract packagers the ability to run a greater number of stock keeping units (SKUs) on the same line without the downtime and labor-overhead penalty associated with frequent changeover. AutoPro comes standard on all Morpheus models.

The Morpheus series is the most advanced vf/f/s platform in the company’s history in terms of overall speed, film handling, servo axis adjustment, ease of operation, and lowest overall cost of ownership.
