New equipment for R&D
MYLAB is a new equipment designed for R&D and scale up purposes, suitable for both granulation and coating processes. It consists of a Main Technical Unit (MTU) with a fully integrated air handling unit and control panel, connected to a removable processing module, represented either by a coating pan or by a fluid bed processor. The coating pan processor is equipped with an interchangeable and fully perforated drum able to work batches from 1.5 to 6 litres. The fluid bed processor has interchangeable product containers for top or bottom spray processes, which can run batches from 2 to 6 litres. That’s why MYLAB can be considered not only as a laboratory unit, but also as a machine for small production batches, with maximum flexibility and easy scale up. Characterised by small overall dimensions, MYLAB is portable on wheels effortless and can be easily and quickly connected to the utilities.
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. On display at Powtech 2016, the PREXIMA 300.
