IMA FLX. The One Stop Supplier For Flexible Packaging.
The new IMA FLEXIBLE PACKAGING HUB is where the production of all machines in the flexible packaging chain converge.
Everything needed to process all types of flexible packaging for the Food, Pharma, Wet Wipes and Pet markets is right here.
The full array of leading technologies brought together in one facility, where a one-stop supplier drives the quest for excellence, sustainability, constantly researching innovative solutions and new eco-compatible materials.
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.
OpenLab analyzes most of the new sustainable and innovative materials as new compostable, biodegradable, paper-based or ultra-thin film, before they are commercially available in order to run them on vertical and horizontal packaging lines.
Thanks to OpenLab, we are able to design turnkey solutions that perfectly match the sealing and flow characteristics of the chosen film. The offer also includes in-depth tests on new materials, from laboratory analysis to production tests that simulate real life conditions, avoiding downtime and costly errors.
OpenLab has carried out in-depth analysis of the composition and performance of most ﬂexible ﬁlms available on the market. Drawing on this extensive library and on its own practical experience, IMA FLX HUB can help you to enhance eﬃciency by selecting the best ﬁlm for your application.
Technical troubles? OpenLab’ll get shot of them.
OpenLab experts will work through any technical glitches that are preventing your ﬁlm and your packaging machine from interfacing seamlessly. Whether it’s a diﬀerent ﬁlm composition or a mechanical machine fault that is causing an issue, IMA FLX HUB will analyse both material and machine to diagnose the problem and restore reliable performance.
Test tomorrow’s films. Today.
OpenLab evaluates most emerging sustainable and breakthrough materials before they are even commercially available in order to know how to run them on the IMA FLX HUB machines. If you are thinking about introducing a new biodegradable, performance-enhanced or ultra-thin ﬁlm, be sure to take advantage of OpenLab testing capabilities.
IMA FLX HUB can design a turn-key machine to accommodate the sealing and running characteristics of your chosen ﬁlm. In addition, the oﬀer includes also thorough testing of new materials, from laboratory analysis right through to trials on production lines that simulate real-life conditions – avoiding actual downtime and costly mistakes.
