The Sypro® CM Feeding System. This continuous
motion feeding system is capable of meeting your feeding requirements.
This system is designed for continuous-motion web transport with
The Sypro CM is an efficient, easy-to-operate continuous motion
unit dose feeding system. The system is very easy to operate and
adjust. Using different format parts, the feeding system is capable
of feeding a wide range of products.
The Sypro feeding system utilizes stepper motors to control product
feeding and feeder location. The feeding system vibrates the product
in a feeder tray and aligns them carefully into tubes. Inside the
tubes, dispensing pins move in and out to release one product at
a time into drop chutes. From the drop chute, the product slides
into cavities in the web. Each drop chute leads the product from
the dispensing mechanism into the dedicated cavities of the web.
This enables only one product per cycle in each web cavity.
The Sypro feeding system utilizes servo motors to control its linear
motion. During the transport of the web, the Sypro feeding system
is raised up to a secure distance from the web. The packaging machine
provides inputs to the feeding system regarding web speed. The speed
of the web can be up to 18m/min (30m/min). The feeding system utilizes
optical sensors to monitor the position of the web. Using the inputs
from the packaging machine and the optical sensors, the Sypro feeding
system initiates a feeding cycle and accelerates to synchronize
with the web speed. Once the web speed is reached, the feeding system
lowers to the web and releases one product per blister cavity. After
the product is released, the feeder is raised from the web and returns
to its home position.
The Sypro feeding system utilizes a B&R 2005 control system,
Profit industrial PC for database and Ethernet connection along
with a SVGA touch screen. The system is 21CFR Part 11 compliant.
All settings and adjustments are done from the touch screen control
panel. The design is very user friendly and product settings can
be saved/recalled as recipes, thus reducing changeover time.
The Sypro feeding system is manufactured with FDA compliant materials,
equipped with safety interlocks and conforms to CE standards.
