IMA SAFE offers complete primary and secondary packaging lines 

to the pharmaceutical and extra-pharma industries.


TRIT-ONE - Robotised Cartoning Island

Everything is changing, including the human body and the ways we take care of it.

For some diseases, certain drugs have become important, not just as a general cure, but as the cure for a particular person.
The next step in our evolution as a species is therefore to fight rare and aggressive diseases by developing high-efficiency drugs based on individual patients’ DNA.

How does this reflect on pharmaceutical packaging needs?

  • Frequent format changeovers
  • Increased accuracy and precision
  • Product traceability
  • Entire packaging process validation

IMA believes that the way to reach higher standards in machine intelligence is by enabling the actual experience and expertise of the manufacturer to be embedded into their machines

Connected machines

The manufacturing world is breathing life into increasingly connected machines that can produce and collecting large amount of information in order to detect problems early, carry out debugging or preventive maintenance and guide implementation or changeovers.

Discover Digital Products and Services to increase production efficiency:

  • A4GATE, the integrated hardware and software solution to protect data confidentiality, system operations and operator safety.
  • IMA Data Room, the virtual space in-cloud where all information coming from the plants is collected and stored, and where the data analysis software programs reside.
  • IMA Sentinel, the platform for continuous autonomous monitoring of the system’s performance wherever it is needed.
  • IMA Control Room, the set services, to improve production, based on detailed reports, specific alerts and general support 24/7.

IMA Digital Engineering

IMA Digital Project gave life to a series of services and project, specifically designed to support the digital life and coordinate the internal activities of a plant:

  • IMA Artificial Intelligence Anomaly Detection and IMA Preventive Maintenance, able to prevent the occurrence of damage or malfunction through Machine Learning techniques thanks to deep data analysis.
  • IMA Virtual Commissioning, to create digital twin of an equipment to bring out design errors and improvements to be implemented before the effective realization.
  • IMA Lines Virtualization, to simulate discrete events and obtain preventive performance line analysis, definition of plant layout, buffer and speed of the machines, and definition of the number of operators.
  • IMA Virtual Mockup, that allows operators to digitally test ergonomics before a plant is actually built. 

IMA Digital Training

IMA Group has created a wide range of solutions that integrate platforms and tools covering the needs of 360° training. The proposals aim to divide education into phases, designed to anticipate training where it is impossible to involve equipment, and exploit advanced technology where training can be carried out directly on the systems.
IMA Digital Classroom, traditional spaces intended for group training, in which students are guided by expert teachers and supported by latest- generation digital devices; IMA E-Learning, mode in which students train independently when and where they want; IMA Training On The Job, mode in which operators carry out training directly on the machine with the support of advanced digital devices.

IMA Digital Services

  • IMA wants to offer the end user a series of ancillary tools to ensure an ever more integrated and easier production experience, with a view to continuous improvement.
