New continuous box-motion bagger from Matrix offers speed, accuracy
The latest vertical form fill seal solutions from Matrix Packaging Machinery will be on display at a Chicago showcase in May.
Wisconsin-based Matrix, a ProMach brand, will demonstrate its MVC-300, a continuous box-motion bagger with a high-performance servo system, at The Sweets & Snacks Expo, to be held May 22-23 at McCormick Place.
Matrix is a leader in vertical form fill seal packaging equipment, producing a variety of flexible bag styles including pillow, gusseted, flat bottom, and modified doy. Its MVC-300 allows users to run a variety of films at faster speeds and with better accuracy, according to the company.
Updates also include enhanced remote connectivity for service, updates and diagnostic capabilities without danger of facility firewall compromise.
The MVC-300 (which stands for Matrix Vertical Continuous Motion/300 mm Wide Jaw) uses a continuous-motion, high-speed jaw system which cuts the film and provides just enough dwell time for the three bag seams to properly seal.
The MVC-300 will pair with a Spee-Dee cup filler at the expo to package 2 ounces of hard candy into a pillow bag with tear notch.
