Filling 80 pre-made pouches per minute
For the first time at Pack Expo, attendees will see the new twin filler Toyo Jidoki TT-8DW-N, which is rated at up to 80 pre-made pouches filled and sealed per minute. This small footprint Toyo Jidoki machine is coupled with a high accuracy Yamato weigher. "You really have to see this machine up close to appreciate the full impact of the precision and ruggedness offered by Toyo Jidoki's design," says Snader.
Single serve pharmaceuticals in stickpacks demonstrated
Single dose stickpacks containing syrups and liquids used to relieve the symptoms of colds, fevers, coughs, flu, upset stomach, and other common ailments are one of the hottest trends in the over-the-counter market today. An Inever syrups and liquids stickpack machine with piston filler demonstrates the forming and filling of single dose packaging. Two other Inever machines will also be on display. One fills liquids, in this instance, dairy products. The second forms and fills either liquids or powders on low volume lines.
An ideal labeling for short runs of roll stock pouches
The FLtecnics FL 1.7 horizontal form fill seal pouch machine will be displayed with an EPI labeling system, powered by Pro Mach, for applications where the added capability of labeling gives the operation greater flexibility. The solution is ideal for packaging operations that would like the option of applying labels on short runs rather than having to frequently changeover large rolls of preprinted film. The FL 1.7 can also be ordered with the patented capability of inserting a corner or center spout from the same applicator. This feature gives customers greater versatility. The machine can also form zippered pouches.
High speed demo of pillow bags for individually quick frozen (IQF) applications
The Matrix Morpheus continuous motion vertical form fill seal machine demonstrates high speed and high quality forming of polyethylene pillow bags for IQF applications. The Morpheus can run at up to 120 bags per minute in this application. The company will also demonstrate AutoPro, the new servo motor controlled auto adjust feature that reduces changeover time by at least 50 percent. Similar systems to AutoPro are usually found on machines costing five times as much.
Utilizing an auger, the Matrix Apollo pillow bag machine displays high speed packaging of powders and particulates. The Matrix Triton bagger showcases the type of hygienic design and construction requirements needed by the poultry and dairy industries.
