The Group’s new organisational structure features two leading business areas in the main sectors: IMA INDUSTRIES (machines for the packaging of tea, coffee, food and cosmetic products) and IMA PHARMA (machines for the processing and packaging of pharmaceutical products).

Come and visit us at Pack Expo Las Vegas to discover our new solutions
for the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food industries!

IMA INDUSTRIES - Machines on show


The GIMA FCW600 is a continuous motion high-speed rotary cartoner for flat blanks, which ensure lower procurement costs compared to a pre-sealed carton. The large capacity carton store also offers 3 times greater feed rate with respect to that of pre-sealed types. The FCW600 can be equipped with an automatic carton feeding system and is suited to processing new final packaging shapes.

IMA BFB Division

On show from IMA BFB Division, the new wraparound case packer WA30 which is suitable to pack any kind of products into a shipper starting from flat-blank. The machine on show can reach a mechanical speed equal to 30 cases/minute. A version for higher speed (up to 40 cases/minute) is also available. It is characterized by a clean and cantilever design with very limited footprint. The flat-blanks magazine is ergonomically positioned to allow easy case loading. The machine is electronically driven in the main motions such as case erection, case transport and product side transfer with GANTRY system. Very quick and tool-free size changeover.

IMA ACTIVE division

To confirm their success and consolidated position within the market, IMA ACTIVE has decided to exhibit a milestone in terms of machines for the pharmaceutical industry:

The S250 SMART tablet press enhances the concept of flexibility and automation of the proven S250, well known for its robustness and reliability. The result is a combination of established technology with the latest controls. The upper machine head can be lifted to ease turret removal and allow access to the inner part of the press. This operation shortens the cleaning time and improves machine flexibility: the turret can be removed simply and quickly and can be swung out and positioned on a trolley. The machine has a very compact design and is operated via a modern touch screen control. The S250 SMART is available in three versions: Traditional, Classic and Prime, according to the different customer’s requirements. The machine reaches a maximum production speed of 300,000 tablets/hour.

IMA SAFE division

IMA SAFE SWIFTPACK will exhibit the SWIFTPHARM, the innovative multi channel electronic counter for tablets and capsules. The machine takes electronic counting and bottle filling to higher levels of speed and accuracy and delivers twice the output of existing multi-track counters for a given footprint. The SWIFTPHARM has been designed to meet the highest standards of cGMP without the need for product contact change parts. The machine is 21CFR part 11 compliant creating an electronic record as an audit trail. Changeover is simple and fast without the use of tools and can be performed in less than 15 minutes excluding cleaning. Machine utilisation in production is therefore far higher than competitive machines. Production output for the machine is 120 bottles/minute. A twin version of the machine, delivers twice the performance. The new SWIFTPHARM counters offer a unique combination of speed, accuracy and control.

On show from IMA SAFE CO.MA.DI.S., the C960 which is a compact and innovative tube filling machine suitable to fill and seal – by hot air technology - plastic and laminate tubes. The machine is marked by quick change of parts in contact with product and easy changeover. “Quintessence” of reliability, ergonomy and ease of use, this model is evidence of CO.MA.DI.S. incomparable capability in manufacturing effective tube fillers, with accurate finishing and brilliant performances. In compact and simplified size, it reconfigures the contents of top class models, using many components from them: an excellent “entry level” in advanced automatic machines. The C960 reaches a mechanical speed of 60 tubes/minute.
