Matrix Releases Combination Weigher Surveillance System for Flexible Packaging Systems

The new Pro-Surveil kit for vertical form fill seal (VFFS) bagging provides a high-resolution video surveillance system, that enables fast precision calibration of combination weighers for proper product distribution

SAUKVILLE, Wis., (October 15, 2018) – Matrix Packaging Machinery, a product brand of ProMach, introduces Pro-Surveil, a simple to install, high resolution video surveillance system that increases the output of vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) bags by enabling operators on the production floor to precisely control mezzanine mounted combination weighers for proper product distribution at the start of the shift, during changeover, and throughout the day.

The Pro-Surveil kit is designed to increase machine throughput and improve employee productivity. It consists of a hospital-grade surveillance camera with analog color, a color monitor, wiring, and connectors. The camera and monitor are housed in washdown rated stainless steel protective casings for long service life. The Pro-Surveil can be used on any combination weigher and is VFFS independent.

The Pro-Surveil keeps operators on the production floor instead of climbing up and down mezzanine stairs, saving time when trying to calibrate product distribution. Current video systems for combination weighers feature digital cameras, which are notorious for producing grainy, low resolution, choppy images. Monitors for these systems also typically generate only a small, lower quality image display. The Pro-Surveil color analog camera, on the other hand, offers a pristine TV-quality image displayed across the entire monitor. With each detail of product distribution distinct, operators achieve maximum output from the combination weigher.

Easy to install Pro-Surveil kits are in stock and ready for shipment. See Matrix and their Pro-Surveil kit live in action at Pack Expo, Booth #S-3632. Also, on display will be other high-performance flexible packaging solutions including the Morpheus with SmartGate for high speed, quality sealing of narrow-width snack packaging; the new INV Pack MVA3 compact sachet machine; precision Toyo Jidoki premade pouch fillers and sealers; and the versatile FLtecnics roll stock pouch HFFS machine.
