Our form fill seal technology can be trusted to package your dairy products without affecting the final product.

Staying ahead of the trends in packaging for the industry, Matrix works hard to keep customers satisfied with the latest innovations and technologies available on the market. Our unique ultrasonic sealing system keeps cheese and dairy goods safely secured without sacrificing the integrity of the final product. By using high speed vibrations to produce a localized heat, small particles of product that typically adhere to the inside of the seal are no longer a concern. This precise friction affects the internal layers of the film and thus creating flawless seals with less dwell time; the final result is higher speeds, less consumable energy, and peace of mind that your product is protected.

Features on the ultra-clean dairy multilane stickpack system includes a closed stainless steel frame except for the unwind section, a variety of dosing systems that include CIP and SIP abilities as well as optional conveyor and sorting equipment that allow for automatic cartoning or counted transfer.

INV Pack provides high quality stickpack and sachet systems for flexible packaging applications.
