Toyo Jidoki TT-8D-N
The Toyo Jidoki TT-8D-N pre-made pouch fill and seal machine is designed for applications in frozen foods, seafood, snacks, rice and other grains, noodles, pet foods, granular and powder products. With one heat seal and one cooling station, the TT-8D-N offers an effective sealing method. This machine incorporates Toyo Jidoki’s tried-and-true technology with flexibility for shaped pouches to meet changing presentations in the marketplace. The TT-8D-N pre-made pouch filler sealer is rated at up to 55 flat, standup, and press-to-close pouches per minute. Pouch sizes range from 4.7-10.2 inches (119-259 mm) wide to 5.1-15.7 inches (129-398 mm) long. The machine is easy to clean and wash-down. Options and accessories include:
- Date printer
- Air squeeze device
- Nitrogen gas flush
- Liquid filling systems
- Zip open/close device
- Seal area cleaning
- Double pouch detection
- Pouch opening detection device
- Pouch pick up position detection
- Product in seal detection
- Product feeding hopper
- Product discharge conveyor
The Inever BY300 multilane stickpack machine is ideal for low-to-medium production of quality stickpack seals with minimal investment required. Output ranges from 150 stickpacks per minute for a three-lane operation to 350 per minute with seven lanes. Widths range from 1.8 inches (45 mm) for three-lane operation to 0.67 inches (17 mm) for seven lanes. Lengths range from 1.18 inches (30 mm) to 8 inches (200 mm).
The BY300 features PLC control, brushless servo motors, and a touch screen HMI. The machine’s rugged ergonomic design allows easy cleaning and requires low maintenance. Available options include:
- Laser, ink jet, hot foil printing
- Laser scoring for straight-tear-line easy-open packs
- Thermo printers
- Embossed coding for variable data
- Dust aspiration for powders
- Collating/counting conveyors for cartoning
- Integrated top load or end load cartoning
- Mechanical cam drive
- Patented “built-in” laser device for easy opening pre-cut
The Morpheus continuous motion form fill seal machine is built on Matrix next generation technology that offers such core attributes as small footprint to conserve floor space, high-speed operation for greater throughput, PC-based architecture with the latest in servo motion control for exacting operation and fast changeover, and the PackML programming language, which gives commonality to packaging machine operator interface and machine-to-machine communication.
In the Morpheus demo, the machine operates with a Spee-Dee Packaging Machinery Revolution Series auger. Morpheus machines are capable of running films that require longer seal times while still yielding high throughput, making it ideal for applications such as frozen, fresh cut, and individually quick frozen (IQF) foods. Morpheus can handle bag sizes from 2-12 inches (51-305 mm) wide to 2-20 inches (51-508 mm) long.
Matrix has engineered automatic setup for the vacuum pull belts on the Morpheus. Vacuum pull belts grip and pull the film through the machine to specified lengths. Precise setup is essential to bag forming consistency.
