IMA Speeding Single-Serve Production

IMA (Industria Macchine Automatiche S.p.A.), an Italian packaging solutions provider, has introduced the GIMA 590 rotary capsule filling and sealing machine.

We started seeing all the small producers wanted to have their own technology and machinery and produce capsules themselves. They wanted to control their own product and keep the coffee fresh,” said GIMA area manager Simone Capponcelli during a recent visit to the company’s manufacturing facility in Bologna, Italy. “We took our big (595) machine and made a smaller version of it. That’s how the 590 was born with features that would be interesting for a small producer.

The 590 machine allows a roaster to fill as few as 100 capsules per minute. As production increases, the machine easily can shift to 200 capsules per minute. It’s easy to use and easy to clean.
