The Inever BY300 multilane stick pack machine from Matrix, powered by Pro Mach, offers combined laser scoring and marking to lower operating costs through savings in consumables versus continuous inkjet printing. It also improves the overall appearance and consumer friendliness of the stick pack.
The cost-effective system, which will be seen at EastPack, June 10-12, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City in Booth #3025, is aimed at low-to-medium production of quality stick pack seals of dosing powders, granules, solids, liquids, and pastes.
