Matrix and its Master Distributor Brands Bring Sustainable Flexible Packaging Solutions to booth 5231 at WestPack 2020

Jan 23, 2020

SAUKVILLE, Wis., January 23, 2020 – Whether your packaging involves vertical or horizontal form fill seal, stick pack, sachet or pre-made pouch, Matrix Packaging Machinery has your solutions in action in booth 5231 at WestPack 2020, February 11-13, at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California.

Matrix is an industry-leading manufacturer of vertical form fill seal machines operating widely throughout the food packaging industry. In addition, Matrix is the master distributor of three global flexible packaging brands: FLtècnics, INV PACK, and Toyo Jidoki. Machines from all three brands will be in action in Matrix’s booth 5231 at WestPack 2020.

Machines on display at WestPack 2020 include:

Matrix Morpheus Series

The Matrix Morpheus, a continuous box-motion bagger, allows users in the packaging and food industries to run a variety of films at faster speeds and with better accuracy.

The Morpheus uses a continuous-motion, high-speed jaw system that is unique from other vertical form fill seal 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 and is why the Morpheus is Matrix’s most advanced vertical form fill seal machine.

The Morpheus series comes in three different machines to best meet users’ production requirements:

  • Morpheus: Standard machine with up to 12-inch bag width
  • Morpheus AB: Includes Rockwell controls; up to 12-inch bag width
  • Morpheus XL: Accommodates up to 15-inch bag width
    Morpheus FFS Machine

Toyo Jidoki specializes in the development and manufacturing of automatic filling and packaging machines, such as the TT-8D-N pre-made pouch filler/sealer, which is designed for a wide variety of applications in the food packaging industry. Its pouch formats and product types include flat, stand-up, retort and press-to-close pouch styles.

INV PACK

INV PACK is a leading provider of high quality stickpack and sachet systems for the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries. On display at WestPack 2020 is the new Sachet Form Fill Seal MVA3 EVO machine, which is designed for small to medium production runs which require high-quality sealings.

Attendees will see demonstrations of the 1.4 horizontal form fill seal machine, as well as its SoD (Stroke on Demand) system, which allows its machines to reduce film waste during production runs.

Matrix and its distributor brands maintain a strong commitment to sustainability. Those traits are found in working closely with its customers in developing packaging solutions that exceed their sustainability goals. Multiple film types including compostable and recyclable films can run efficiently on many Matrix machines, as well as those of its distributor brands.
