US-based packaging machinery company ProMach is set to showcase its most flexible and highest speed integrated bagging and labelling solution, Morpheus with Flex-Pac labeller, at the SNAXPO18 event that will take place between 12 and 14 March in Atlanta, Georgia.
Alongside Morpheus, ProMach will also exhibit its latest automated bagging and labelling solutions, which are expected to lower labour costs, as well as increase flexibility.
The company’s Matrix Packaging Machinery, for example, sells and services the Morpheus vertical form fill seal (VFFS) bagger solution, and it will help forming and filling pillow and gusseted bags.
According to ProMach, the Morpheus VFFS bagger solution has a capacity to produce up to 200 bags per minute.
The Morpheus film handling and sealing technology is ideal for thinner gauge films used for packaging snacks, candies, dried fruit and other dry products.
The company also said that AutoPro, a servo-controlled axis adjustment system exclusive to the Morpheus, offers fast, accurate and trouble-free changeover by a minimum of 50% compared to typical VFFS changeover time.
Among the products will be EPI’s Flex-Pac, which the company says is the highest selling pressure-sensitive labelling systems in the world, and can be used for labelling bags, pouches, horizontal flow wrappers and stretch wrappers.
The Flex-Pac system to be showcased at the event will label bags formed and filled on the show floor by the Morpheus.
The company’s other division, ID Technology, will exhibit a range of labelling, coding, and marking systems for the snack food packaging lines.
The products on display at the event include thermal transfer overprinters such as 32d & COM II, iCon 2 laser coder, Citronix inkjet printer, as well as ID Technology 252, 222 and 252N corner wrap systems.
ProMach will also showcase Brenton Engineering’s case packers and palletisers, Texwrap’s shrink wrappers, and bundlers, Wexxar BEL’s case erecters, hand packing stations, and case sealers.
