The Orion forms, fills, and seals up to 90 bags per minute. Bag sizes range from 2-3 inches (51-76 mm) to 11-15.5 inches (280-394 mm). Orion standard features include color touch screen operator panel, Spanish/English bilingual operator interface, and an Allen Bradley MicroLogix PLC control system. Compared to other machines, the Orion has a small footprint, which helps to conserve valuable floor space.

Each Orion offers automatic edge guide film tracking, short travel, and angled incline film upwind, each of which contributes to precise film movement and trouble free operation. Tool-free quick-change core chucks help to ensure fast changeover between jobs. These units can be used with a wide range of fillers to ensure optimum performance for the application and to accommodate customer preferences. Matrix engineering achieves low overall cost of operation in terms of consumables.
