The Morpheus continuous motion form fill seal machine, now on the market for a year, is rated at up to 180 bags per minute and features automatic setup capabilities. 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, according to the company. A major new automated system will be added to the Morpheus and showcased at Pack Expo, Matrix said.

Two other new machines on display are high efficiency solutions focusing on different styles of flexible packaging, according to the company.

The Toyo Jidoki TT-8D-N pre-made pouch fill and seal machine from Japan is designed for stand-up, flat bottom, and fifth-panel style bags. The TT-8D-N pre-made pouch filler sealer is rated at up to 55 flat, standup, and press-to-close pouches per minute, Matrix said.

The Inever BY300, astickpack packaging system from Spain, is a multilane stickpack machine for low-to-medium production of stickpack seals of powders, granules, solids, liquids, and pastes. Output ranges from 150 stickpacks per minute for a three-lane operation to 350 per minute with seven lanes, according to the company. The BY300 features PLC control, brushless servo motors, and a touch screen HMI.
