Matrix Master

The Matrix Master offers a flexible mobile solution to your waste matrix needs without having to install a central waste system.

For self adhesive label production:

Designed to handle sticky matrix / lattice waste and edge trims from the label production process, this versatile mobile unit incorporates design cues from our tried and tested central matrix extraction systems. Neatly packaged inside an acoustic enclosure, the precision model 78 series trim cutter, waste fan, material separator and cartridge filter form the heart of the system. The unit can be positioned alongside the press and receive waste matrix directly into a collection hood, connected via a range of plasma ‘non-stick coated’ galvanised ductwork to the inlet of the Matrix master.

The precision trim cutter efficiently cuts the continuous waste matrix to prevent blockages and roping trims before passing through a centrifugal waste fan and into a plastic waste collection sack for disposal. An integrated oil mist injection system ensures the pressure sensitive waste material does not stick to any of the internal surfaces.

The unit includes an integrated control system with flying lead for simply ‘plug in and go’ operation.

For foil, film & laminates food packaging production:

Removing foil lattice or skeletal waste during the production of food packaging can substantially improve productivity, profitability and production capacity, not to mention reduce downtime and eliminate the manual handling issues associated with rewinding waste lattice on press and ensuring revenue is generated through waste recycling.

The Impact foil extraction enables many production machines to be connected to a centralised extraction system, conveyed through the production area and baled to maximise recycling of the waste material. Simple but highly effective trim collection hoods are successfully integrated onto the production press and work in conjunction with local mini chopper fans ensures the lattice is broken into an easy conveyable size.


  • Eliminates the need to rewind waste matrix and edge trims on press
  • Wide range of material applications including PSA label stock, laminated trim, and film
  • Eliminate production issues where awkward or irregular waste matrix patterns prevent waste being rewound on press
  • Eliminates traditional manual handling issues associated with handling large spools of waste matrix
  • Mobile unit can be moved between presses as required
  • Quiet efficient operation

Technical data:

  • Web width up to 500mm Press speeds of up to 150 meters per minute
