The IMA Group at Propak Asia 2009
IMA comes closer than anyone to understanding and satisfying your requirements, offering a wide and innovative range of automatic machines for the processing and packaging of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, tea and coffee.
The Group presence in the Far East reflects an ongoing policy that IMA has been pursuing in this area for many years. IMA Pacific is located in Bangkok and is the branch office for Thailand and the Far East markets, excluding China.
At Propak Asia 2009 the IMA Group exhibited innovative solutions for the pharmaceutical industry.
IMA SAFE exhibited the TR130S, an economical and very compact thermoforming machine (up to 320 blisters/minute). It is a fully GMP machine with a modern design and high versatility. The TR130S offers a wide range of forming speeds, which are easily adjustable and can work all kinds of thermoforming materials. The changeover is facilitated: the parts are small, light and easy to replace. The TR130S can be easily connected to the current IMA SAFE cartoners.
On show from PRECISION GEARS, the IC 150C, an intermittent cartoning machine specially designed for medium production packaging lines. Compact design permits installation of the machine even in space restricted areas. This also means that all controls are readily accessible to the operator. The size parts and relevant settings are such as to permit the operator to quickly and safely perform size change-over. The IC 150C reaches a production speed of 120 cartons/minute.
