The new all-in-one Morpheus XL for vf/f/s of narrow to wide pillow and gusseted bags not only reaches speeds of up to 120 bags of frozen chicken or turkey pieces per minute, but also increases the processor’s capacity for high throughput of multiple SKUs on the same line. (Matrix Booth #B4075)

SAUKVILLE, Wis., December 21, 2017 – Matrix Packaging Machinery, a member of the ProMach family of brands, introduces to the poultry industry at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), January 30 - February 1 in Atlanta, Ga., the high speed Morpheus XL vertical form/fill/seal (vf/f/s) bagger, a new solution for accurately forming and filling narrow to extra wide bags of frozen poultry pieces at up to 120 bags per minute on one compact platform.

Advanced engineering optimized the Morpheus XL for quality sealing at high speed on multiple film types, including film used in individually quick frozen (IQF) poultry-piece packaging. At the show, Matrix will demonstrate for show attendees the Morpheus XL forming and filling IQF bags. The Morpheus XL produces pillow and gusted bags from two inches wide all the way up to 15 inches. With its fast, precise changeover and broad range of bag sizes and types, a single Morpheus XL can replace two slower and older machines for significantly lower capital investment and reduced labor costs on the packaging line.

Matrix’s unique servo-based adjustment system AutoPro ensures fast, accurate, and trouble-free changeover – faster by a minimum of 50 percent over competitive machines. AutoPro gives poultry processors and contract packagers the ability to run a greater number of stock keeping units (SKUs) on the same line without the downtime and labor-overhead penalty associated with frequent changeover. AutoPro comes standard on all Morpheus models.

The Morpheus series is the most advanced vf/f/s platform in the company’s history in terms of overall speed, film handling, servo axis adjustment, ease of operation, and lowest overall cost of ownership.
