Matrix Features the Mercury HS, Its Most Customer Demanded Form-Fill-Seal Machine, at EastPack 2014

Jun 03, 2014

Matrix Packaging Machinery, powered by ProMach, will showcase at EastPack, June 10-12 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, the Mercury HS, a form-fill-seal machine capable of speeds up to 140 bags per minute, depending on the application. The moderately priced Mercury HS is the highest demanded Matrix form-fill-seal machine due to its speed, dependability, and low annual operating cost – less than $1,000 per year.

Matrix will also display the compact, modular, and robust Inever BY300 multilane stickpack machine. The BY300 is ideal for low-to-medium production of quality stickpack seals of dosing powders, granules, solids, liquids, and pastes with minimal investment required. This very compact machine forms, fills, and seals three-sided stickpacks from one lane to seven lanes.

Mercury HS

The Mercury HS forms, fills, and seals bags with widths ranging from 1.75 to 11 inches (44 to 280 mm) and lengths from 2.5 to 15.00 inches (60 to 390 mm). Standard features include stainless steel construction, Matrix “SmartJaw” ST horizontal sealing technology, color touch screen operator panel, English/Spanish operator interface, and an Allen Bradley MicroLogix PLC control system. Compared to other high speed machines, the Mercury has a small footprint, conserving valuable floor space.

Each Mercury HS offers a self-centering film drive down system, automatic edge guide film tracking, and short travel, angled incline film upwind, all of which contribute to precise film movement and trouble free operation. Tool-free quick-change core chucks help to ensure fast changeover between jobs. View a video of the Mercury HS.

Inever BY300

The Inever BY300 output ranges from 150 stickpacks per minute for a three-lane operation to 350 per minute with seven lanes. Widths range from 1.8 inches (45 mm) for three-lane operation to 0.67 inches (17 mm) for seven lanes. Lengths range from 1.18 inches (30 mm) to 8 inches (200 mm).

The BY300 features PLC control, brushless servo motors, and a touch screen HMI. The machine’s rugged ergonomic design allows easy cleaning and requires low maintenance. Available options include:

  • Laser, ink jet, hot foil printing
  • Laser scoring for straight-tear-line easy-open packs
  • Thermo printers
  • Embossed coding for variable data
  • Dust aspiration for powders
  • Collating/counting conveyors for cartoning
