IMA Coffee has released the high-speed capsule filling and sealing machine SYNKRO. According to the machine manufacturer, SYNKRO implements the latest technologies to deliver high-speed performance, space-efficient design, and flexibility in handling all types of capsules.
The machine is compact and enables easy access to operators for maintenance or cleaning operations. The pull-out dosing unit is quick to clean. Due to the magnetic shuttles operating independently of one another, SYNKRO will adapt to customer needs, whether that’s bulk-fed, on trays or in stacks, whatever the material or size of the capsule.
IMA Coffee says the most significant aspect of the machine’s versatility depends on the different dwell times that are achieved at the different operating stations. This enables the customer to set ideal parameters according to the production scenario, adjusting each single operation and optimising the final product quality. For example, the sealing system parameters – time and pressure – can be changed according to the material to be sealed.
SYNKRO can be fitted with a variety of different sealing systems, allowing customers to select the most appropriate solution based on materials used and the product they are processing.
Automation technologies combined with the clean design of SYNKRO allow for non-stop production. Both semi and fully automatic reel-feeding are possible. Pre-arranged to connect to loading systems via Autonomous Mobile Robot, the machine also features an automatic reel-splicing system.
SYNKRO also features an innovative dosing unit that implements pre-compression to compact the coffee during capsule filling for a homogeneous product, allowing consistent dosing throughout each batch. Accurate weight can be achieved thanks to the on-line weighing system which checks each capsule and feeds data back to the dosing unit if automatic adjustments are required. The dosing unit’s off-set design minimises the distance between capsules for savings on packaging material.
SYNKRO has been developed to boost the capsule filling and sealing potential of companies looking to reach higher targets.
