IMA BFB and IMA Ciemme have a long tradition of designing and manufacturing end-of-line or “secondary packaging” machines. Our bundling and wrapping machines, case packers, palletizers and depalletizers cover a wide range of speeds and are aimed at the following markets: pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, diary & food, tea, coffee and tobacco. Reduced machine footprint and great accessibility give the machines a more contemporary feel. Attention to detail is an important part of our manufacturing philosophy. IMA BFB also offers robotized, integrated case packing and palletizing systems that guarantee flexibility and efficiency in the increasingly demanding packaging market.
BFB Division has always focused heavily on these processes and has created specific film winding, conveyor, cutting and sealing systems to ensure that the film is always cut with a geometrically precise fold and sealed without wrinkles, air bubbles or other blemishes. The flexibility of these machines enables transverse sealing underneath the bundle or lateral sealing.
For bottles, aerosols or tubes wrapped in heat-shrink film, in the cosmetic and toiletry industries BFB Division offers a range of machines that can cover different speeds, with dedicated solutions for products whose shape tends to vary widely (or even supplied with a containing tray or into pucks).
The machines can always be combined with a heat-shrink tunnel with lower power consumption which are easily accessible and tend to avoid damage to the product. The positive conveyor system combined with precision at every stage of the production cycle enables high levels of efficiency to be achieved even with products that are awkward or hard to handle.
Whichever the type of case packing you are looking for, by us you can find it!
From wrap-around to side or top loading, all our models are conceived with reduced footprints, however assuring ergonomicity and easy operator access for any type of cleaning or maintenance operations.
Any of our solution is devised to ensure total control throughout all stages of the serialization process.
Our offer includes integrated case packing and palletizing solutions in a compact structure and with an extremely simple pallet management thanks to the latest improvements in robotic technology.
Available in several versions ranging from basic applications, such as manual pallet loading, up to more sophisticated solutions, such as automatic feeding of empty pallets and unloading of full pallets, IMA BFB palletizers have a solid structure and use precise, rapid multi-axis robotized systems for accurate positioning of products on pallets or inside “big boxes”.
Our palletizers have been developed to respond to market requirements for high speed, flexibility and compactness of the palletizing section typical of modern production lines.
IMA BFB Division develops robotized solutions for the smooth handling of different devices, such as medical inhalers, injection pens or similar sub-assemblies. BFB division has developed machines capable of handling unstable products, like tubes and roll-ons, and of feeding packaging machines like cartoners or systems to load plastic trays.
