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 Place to Share. A network of technological laboratories and testing areas born in 2016 within the IMA Group, dedicated to the research on sustainable materials, technologies and production optimization processes. The aim of OpenLab is to identify the perfect match. That is, the machine and flexible film combination that will deliver the best possible performance.

IMA FLX HUB specialist department tests and analyses over 1000 film samples every year. By creating a unique fingerprint of each substrate, it’s possible to predict in advance how they will be on machines. OpenLab then puts that theory into practice by piloting materials on commercial vertical and horizontal packaging lines.

Make informed material decisions

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.
