Matrix Demonstrates High Speed Packaging with Multiple Bag and Pouch Sizes and Formats at Expo Pack 2019

Sep 5, 2019

SAUKVILLE, Wis. – At Expo Pack, June 11-13, 2019 at the Guadalajara Convention Center in Guadalajara, Mexico, Matrix, a brand of the ProMach Flexibles business line will demonstrate several machines to help customers select the right flexible packaging solution for their unique needs.

The Toyo Jidoki TT-8D-N pre-made pouch filler/sealer delivers flexibility for 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.

The INV Pack BY3 multilane stickpack machine is ideal for low-to-medium production rates of quality stickpacks with minimal investment required. Output ranges from 150 stickpacks per minute for a three-lane operation to 350 per minute with seven lanes. The machine’s rugged ergonomic design enables easy cleaning and requires low maintenance. Options include: laser, ink jet, hot foil printing, and patented “built-in” laser for easy opening pre-cut.

Mercury with Spee-Dee Volumetric Cup Filler, Conveyer and Wexxar Bel Flex E Pack

Wexxar Bel, a ProMach company (booth #2008) in conjunction with Matrix will demonstrate a real time “mini-line” that integrates several machines to produce a final customer-ready product. The line will form, fill, seal, and deliver the newly created product for final packaging to the end customer. The Matrix Mercury, a v/f/f/s machine is known for high performance, speed, dependability and a completely configurable solution for both small and large bags. It’s ease of operation, minimal maintenance requirements, small footprint and “SmartJaw” ST horizontal sealing technology are among the many benefits of this machine. Working in combination with a Spee-Dee Volumetic cup filler, it will produce a complete package. The finished package will then travel along a Joy Conveyor to arrive on a Wexxar product accumulation table next to the Flex E Pack station. Operators load the pouches into cases formed by the Dekka 500 that are then sent to the BEL 252 for case sealing. At the show, the Flex-E Pack is optioned with a 6-foot roller conveyor with an A42 accumulation table for case packing. The system can be upgraded depending on customer needs.

“The Flex E Pack provides a start to finish solution for the end user to form up their cases, provide the right space for the operators to hand-pack that case, and send it down to a fully automatic top sealer,” said Sander Smith, Product Manager at Wexxar Bel, “On a small footprint, you’re able to achieve quite a bit.”
