Sypro IM Intermittent Motion

The IM Sypro® Feeding System. This intermitted motion feeding system is capable of meeting your feeding requirements for plate sealing Blister-lines. Blister Machines with plate sealing transport the web in the feeding area intermittently.

The Sypro IM is an efficient, easy-to-operate intermitted 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 Stepper 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. Using a Cam signal inputs from the packaging machine, the Sypro feeding system initiates a feeding cycle and lowers the drop chutes to the web and releases one product per blister cavity. After the product is released, the feeder is raised from the web and waits for the next Cam signal.


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.
