IMA Connected Machines • The power of data

We give life to technologically advanced Connected Machines, to obtain useful information on the status and equipment performances.

Digitization is bringing a radical change within the production processes, significantly increasing the level of integration between systems, and machines present in any production facility.
Thanks to its experience and expertise, IMA launched a series of initiatives aimed to support the innovation of the packaging sector through multiple digitization actions, to reduce time to market, increase flexibility and improve the efficiency of the entire production process.

Connected Machines are the first fundamental steps, technologically advanced machines equipped with sensors to ensure full control of the entire production, monitor data flow and guarantee optimized performances.

The vertical integration of IT networks allows experts to access and analyze process information, machines and systems efficiency at any time and with any type of device.

Obtaining production data in real-time is possible to monitor components life status, plan maintenance, track activities and test virtual behaviors and so:

  • assist, maintain and resolve plant problems from remote;
  • reduce average downtime and repair times (MTTR);
  • improving operational efficiency (OEE);
  • accelerate installation, commissioning and debugging activities;
  • trace the location, flow and conditions of the plant.

IMA Sentinel is the platform to autonomously monitor machine conditions in real-time 24/7, collecting raw data and translating them into meaningful and valuable information.

Sentinel provides: Intelligent and dynamic action lists for the operator to help improve efficiency, machine data statistics for smart line harmonization, real average performance for accurate production planning.

Monitor whenever you are your installed base with IMA Sentinel.


The Industry 4.0 model cannot ignore the data and the value they can generate. Connections via digital networks, information organization and interpretation are the ways to obtain optimized production results through event analysis, preventive and predictive maintenance.

IMA Group carried out various projects concerning the interconnectivity of machines and their direct communication with the Control Rooms. Throughout these protected digital spaces (located in production facilities or on cloud platforms) data is collected, analyzed and re-processed to generate new technological solutions and improve production results.


In recent years, cyber security has become a dominant theme in the manufacturing world. Hacker attacks are increasingly frequent and put data, systems and people at risk.

The problem is now solved with A4GATE, the integrated hardware and software solution to protect data confidentiality, system operations and operator safety.

A4GATE is the safe place between your smart machines and external remote uncontrolled accesses.
