IMA OPENLab - The place to share

OPENLab is the IMA Group’s network of technological laboratories and testing area, dedicated to the research on sustainable materials, technologies and production optimization processes.

Thanks to the implementation of the most modern digital infrastructures, together with think tank spaces, environments dedicated to the generation of ideas and the prototyping of materials, we aim to build a connection between knowledge and skills coming from machines, packaging manufacturing and customers.

The main goal of the laboratories is to find alternative materials to plastic and it aims to merge studies, experimentation and industrial development activities on materials including all laboratory phases, from design to engineering, of products and processes.
