Market demand for variety and more sustainable formats is challenging manufacturers, with the proliferation of stock keeping units (SKUs), product types and packaging configurations – from specialty and seasonal packaging to different case sizes and formats for wholesalers or convenience stores. Satisfying such a wide array of consumer and retailer demands means frequent equipment changeovers to accommodate different packaging runs and having a large quantity of products and materials at hand, which take up valuable facility space.
MGS’ Matrix TL case packer can handle the unique specifications of diverse packaging runs with speed and efficiency. It offers an effective solution for a large range of applications and product types, including home care, personal care, pharma, and medical device, and works as a secondary packaging solution for food and beverage products like bottled or canned foods and drinks.
In addition to competitive run speeds for these kinds of applications, the Matrix TL also efficiently transitions between package types and formats. Changeovers can be accomplished in as little as 15 minutes through features such as:
• Drop-in tooling for easy format changes
• Customized pick head tooling that is simply swapped out for product changes
• Precise packing recipe selections
