The Triton is rated at cycle speeds up to 100 bags per minute. Bag sizes range from a minimum of 2 inches wide by 3 inches long to 18 inches wide by 23 inches long. This competitively priced vertical-form-fill seal machine features heavy duty wash-down construction for a long service life. The Triton’s frame, for example, is made with 4 by 4 inch welded stainless steel.

This unit comes standard with the Matrix Smart Jaw ST sealing system, automatic web edge guide film tracking, tool free film roll and forming tube changeover, nationally available Allen-Bradley control components, and more. Available options include a load shelf for heavier bags and a gas flushing system for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP).

“Produce packers like the Triton because it is rugged, simple to operate, low cost to use, and isn’t loaded with a lot of bells and whistles that packaging operations don’t need,” said Marc Willden, vice president and general manager. “Once a customer uses one of our machines, they don’t go anywhere else.”
