At the forthcoming edition of Pack Expo 2015, the IMA Group will exhibit many new incoming solutions for the processing and packaging.
The high precision technology of IMA’s machines and complete lines will also be revealed in the tiniest detail through cutting-edge solutions such as jumbo screen videowalls.
New technological advances will be on display, together with the proven quality of the IMA solutions for the processing and packaging of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food, tea and coffee.
Pack Expo 2015 will be a chance to discover what’s new in the IMA world.
IMA Active division will present, for the first time,
PREXIMA, the new tablet press machine
Everything gained in years of experience and expertise in the industry has been carefully channelled into PREXIMA, IMA Active’s new tablet press machine. Powered by IMA’s knowledge of the sector, designed with unique Italian style, built to deliver top-level performance, the PREXIMA will drive your productivity to a higher level of efficiency. Based on the proven Comprima concept, PREXIMA ensures complete separation between processing and mechanical areas thanks to the use of purposely designed seals and protections. Along with this feature, the design also provides great accessibility: the processing area is fully accessible once the external doors are opened, while access to the machine basement is required only for maintenance. The PREXIMA’s compression support is based on three columns linked together by two strong cast iron structures. The compression rollers are incorporated within the two cast iron structures and supported on both sides. This exceptionally sturdy structure - an essential requirement for high quality tablets - guarantees both pre-compression and main compression forces up to 100 kN with maximum reliability. The removal of the turret is quick and easy thanks to a rotating arm completely housed in the upper mechanical compartment. The HMI guides the operator step by step during each phase of turret extraction. PREXIMA is also provided with the new XIMA HMI, which was recently awarded with the A’ Design Award 2015 for its usability and its strategic role in improving operators’ efficiency.
Capsule filling machine
Also on display from IMA Active division, PRACTICA, a capsule filling machine that represents a competitive solution in terms of speed, precision and ease of use, covering low, medium and high-speed production requirements. PRACTICA performs single product dosing (powder/granulate or pellets) with very high accuracy. Its engineered simplicity ensures a high reliability, easy operation and maintenance. User friendliness is a hallmark of this machine: a PC based control system can be configured according to machine characteristics and the new XIMA HMI is interactive and very simple to use. PRACTICA is prearranged to be equipped with a statistic weight checking unit for production monitoring. Among the options, the self-adjustment of the dosing head keeps the set target weight, ensuring the production always within the parameters set by the operator.
Automatic tube filler
Suitable to handle aluminium, polyethylene and laminate tubes, the C970 - by IMA Safe CO.MA.DI.S. - is an automatic tube filler marked by sturdy stainless steel frame, 9-station turntable with direct drive and diving nozzle with positive shut-off valve. Innovative features of the C970 include a dosing pump that can be dismounted without tools, a quick and ergonomic changeover from aluminium to plastic tubes (and vice versa) and a smart HMI. Available also in special executions (for handling of tubes with different body shapes such as unidosis and cannulas) it can perform - on request - different seal shapes on polyethylene tubes. The C970 reaches a mechanical speed of 70 tubes/minute.
