GARANT: New flat and satchel bag machine MATASIM as entry-level model
At the Pack Expo 2018 in Chicago the W&H subsidiary GARANT presented the technical innovation of the year 2018 - the MATASIM. This machine will complement the successful range of MATADOR flat and satchel bag making machines.
The MATASIM is to be seen as a basic machine for new markets. It is particularly suitable for customers who are planning to produce simple flat and satchel bags or who want to use this machine for a first step into paper bag production. The main focus of the development was therefore on the principle of simplicity. Paper bags can be produced quickly and with minimal effort.
The MATASIM is characterized by its simple operation and robust construction. As for all GARANT machines, there we can offer a suitable printing unit, the LINAFLEX S.
Both machines were presented at the PackExpo 2018 in Chicago. The machine line was installed by our service technician Vojtech Vybiralik who was able to explain the various functions of the production processes to the visitors on the booth. For the first time John Vander-Putten took part in a GARANT fair. Since last year, he is working for GARANT as the local face of GARANT Sales in the USA.
The MATASIM was a great start for many good discussions. They resulted in several projects for the MATASIM and for other GARANT machines.
