Vertical bagger serves-up sweet rewards

Aug 23, 2012

Matrix was recently featured in the July/August 2012 issue of Contract Packaging magazine showcasing their vertical form fill seal system for Cano Packaging Corporation, a leading confectionery contract packager.

As a growing company, Cano found that advanced packaging technology provides an economical solution to the challenge of increasing capacity and offering packaging options tailored to customers' needs. With the flexibility of its new Matrix Elete DS13 vertical form fill seal machine, introduced by Matrix in late 2010, the company can produce packages ranging in size from 0.5 ounces to five pounds at speeds ranging from 80 per minute to 30 per minute, respectively, on one packaging machine. In addition to fulfilling customers’ year-round demand, the equipment gives the company the ability to meet requisite holiday-specific confection packaging needs.

The Matrix equipment’s ease of changeover, minimal maintenance, flexibility, reliability, and user-friendly interface are the foundation of Cano’s ability to package over 500 stock-keeping units annually. With the availability of off-the-shelf parts, supplier support and service, the company achieves optimal uptime, which ensures customer needs and delivery deadlines are met.

According to Darren Lemmon, Vice President IT and Purchasing at Cano, the plant floor can become so crowded during peak seasons that forklift drivers have trouble finding the room to navigate between the multiple packaging lines. When not needed, the extra machinery is moved out of the active floor area. However, the Matrix machine—one of three Cano owns—is always in action. Lemmon says he hopes to buy another Matrix machine in the near future.
