SAUKVILLE, Wis. – At United Fresh, June 11-12, 2019 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL, Matrix, a brand of ProMach, will showcase its Morpheus, a continuous motion vertical form fill seal (vf/f/s) machine that is ideal for a host of different environments and produces an extensive range of package formats at up to 200 units per minute. The company is also featuring the Toyo Jidoki TT-8D-N for high speed filling and sealing of pre-made pouches. (Matrix United Fresh Booth #16024)

Morpheus

The Matrix Morpheus a continuous motion machine is the most advanced in the company’s history in terms of overall speed, film handling, and lowest overall cost of ownership. Morpheus is ideal for thinner gauge films used for packaging fruit, dried fruit, vegetables, and other dry products. In addition to thinner films, specialized sealing jaws enable the Morpheus to run thicker gauges that require longer dwell times for applications such as frozen, IQF, and fresh cut foods.

AutoProTM, a standard feature on the Morpheus, provides fast, accurate, and trouble free changeover – faster by a minimum of 50 percent over typical vf/f/s changeover times. The AutoProTM offers a breakthrough in terms of price and performance, giving Morpheus models the type of servo motor technology only found on machines three or four times its cost. AutoProTM controls adjustments as fine as .001 inches (.025 mm) on each of nine mechanical axes. AutoProTM archives film and sealing-jaw settings for each SKU and replicates those each time the product runs.

Toyo Jidoki TT-8D-N

The Toyo Jidoki TT-8D-N pre-made pouch filler/sealer delivers flexibility in terms of pouch formats – flat, stand-up, retort, and press-to-close. This pre-made pouch filler and sealer is designed for packaging frozen foods, seafood, snacks, rice and other grains, noodles, pet foods, and granular and powder products. Toyo Jidoki engineering delivers precision pouch sealing capabilities regardless of film type or gauge. Accessories include a product feeding hopper, product discharge conveyor, pouch opening follow-up guide, product counter, heater disconnection alarm, and pouch opening detection device.
