“Whether a pharma company is looking at stickpacks for single dose packaging or a food company needs fast and precise bagging or pouch filling/sealing, a meeting with Matrix at Pack Expo East should prove beneficial,” said Marc Willden, Vice President and General Manager of Matrix. “The machines at the show are representative of a wide selection of flexible packaging solutions offered under the ProMach Flexible Packaging Group umbrella.”

Apollo high speed, vertical form, fill, seal (VFFS) bagging machine

The Apollo servo-driven intermittent high speed bagger is the fastest, most versatile VFFS machine offered by Matrix. The servo-driven design makes this a rugged, dependable option for all bag making needs. The Apollo handles numerous bag styles, including flat bottom and gusseted, and features Matrix’s advanced servo motion control of the film pull belts and the end-seal jaws for smooth and fast operation. Specialized sealing technology is available for high speed individually quick frozen food (IQF) applications.

Mercury HS high speed VFFS

The Mercury HS forms, fills, and seals bags at speeds of up to 140 bags per minute. Compared to other high speed machines, the Mercury has a small footprint, which helps to conserve valuable floor space. Each Mercury HS offers a self-centering film drive down system, automatic edge guide film tracking, and short travel, angled incline film upwind, all of which contribute to precise film movement and trouble free operation. Tool-free quick-change core chucks help to ensure fast changeover between jobs. The Mercury HS is the highest selling Matrix VFFS.
