Fast and versatile, the Morpheus continuous motion vertical form fill seal bagger

The Morpheus continuous motion form fill seal machine is rated at up to 180 bags per minute and features automatic setup capabilities that reduce changeover time and lead to higher productivity. The Morpheus offers a small footprint to conserve floor space, servo control for precise motion, and ProTech by ProMach™ – the remote tech support and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) monitoring service.

Morpheus machines run films that require longer seal times, making these units ideal for applications such as frozen, fresh cut, and individually quick frozen (IQF) foods. Automatic setup removes the potential for operator error, helps to improve package quality, and decreases changeover time.
