Matrix Brings Increased Productivity to IQF Bagging Applications at 2020 Northwest Food & Beverage World

SAUKVILLE, Wis., January XX, 2020 – Matrix Packaging Machinery will be demonstrating why its high-speed Morpheus XL is the ideal vertical form fill seal machine for the individually quick frozen food (IQF) industry in booth 945 at the 2020 Northwest Food & Beverage World show, Feb. 17-20, at the Spokane Convention Center, Spokane, Washington

Matrix Morpheus Series

The Matrix Morpheus, a continuous box-motion bagger, allows users in the packaging and food industries to run a variety of films at faster speeds and with better accuracy.

The Morpheus uses a continuous-motion, high-speed jaw system that is unique from other vertical form fill seal machines, because the film never stops. The jaw system cuts the film and provides just enough dwell time for the three bag seams to properly seal. IQF, snack, fresh cut and cheese applications typically require a longer seal time in the manufacturing of its packaging – which is why the Matrix Morpheus is perfectly engineered to perform well in these industries.

At the show, Matrix will simulate how the Morpheus XL forms, fills and seals a pillow bag for frozen French fries using craft paper/poly film. The Morpheus XL is capable of producing pillow and gusted bags from 2.75 inches wide, all the way up to 15 inches wide and up to 25 inches in length. This flexibility in performance enables a single Morpheus XL to replace two slower and older machines, which lowers labor costs and produces a better ROI for your packaging line.

The Morpheus XL is intuitive and easy to use, thanks to the AutoPro System that streamlines changeovers by eliminating manual adjustments such as hand cranks and thumb screws. 

Rather, the AutoPro System uses precision electronic motion control that’s activated with a touch of a button. The real advantage this technology brings to processors and contract packagers is the ability to run a greater number of SKUs on the same line without downtime and costly changeover delays.

Demonstrations on the Morpheus XL will be conducted throughout the show. To see how the Morpheus XL can help bring you greater efficiencies in your IQF applications, visit Matrix in booth 945.
