IMA ACTIVE machines on show
The new S250 Smart has been developed to enhance the concept of flexibility and automation of the proven S250 tablet press, well known for its robustness and reliability. The new version combines established technology with the latest controls and an interchangeable turret. 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. The machine reaches a maximum production speed of 300,000 tablets/hour.
IMA SAFE machines on show
The GIANT-A180 is a blister and cartoning line with a combined output speed of 400 blisters/minute and 180 cartons/minute. It is a perfect alternative for just-in-time production of small and medium size batches. The machines have once again been based on the IMA philosophy of flexibility in operation; having a fast changeover combined with easy cleaning. The working groups of the GIANT are completely servomotor assisted and particular attention has been given to limit the amount of material/product waste. Greatly reduced change over times are possible with a reduced number of size parts which have been specifically designed to weigh less than 20 lbs (9Kg).
