IMA ACTIVE machines on show

The ADAPTA’s DNA has its roots in IMA’s 50 years of experience and more than 5,000 capsule filling installations worldwide. This knowledge and experience have allowed the IMA capsule fillers to evolve and adapt to the ever changing requirements of the market. The machine features an exceptional design flexibility: two of its dosing units are reversible/interchangeable giving the possibility of a plug and play shift between different machine configurations and filling combinations. The machine is designed to dose 3 products (up to 5 upon request) into the same capsule, reaching a speed of 100,000 capsules/hour. The ADAPTA also has an indisputable efficiency as far as in-process control is concerned. With the appropriate options, total production control can be achieved thanks to individual check of product dosage and 100% control of gross and/or net weight.

The ROTO CUBE LAB 12 is a compact High Shear Mixer Granulator and Single-Pot Processor for R&D purposes. It is used to process small batch sizes (2Kg - 4Kg) carrying out the entire process, from granulation to the drying of granules, in one contained bowl. This means that contact between product, operator and environment is minimized. The ROTO CUBE LAB 12 is suitable for the development of potent products and allows total batch reproducibility, ensuring high product yields. The tilting system of the bowl ensures gentle handling of granules during vacuum drying to prevent them breaking. The gas stripping system (GA.ST.), by injecting an inert gas through the product mass, enhances the evaporation rate. The machine guarantees a reliable monitoring of granulation and drying, an accurate detection of the process end-point and very easy cleaning operations.
