Experience IMA Safe

Welcome to the IMA Safe world. A journey through our values.
The answer for all your packaging needs.
Discover a set of important values which make IMA Safe leader in its market. 

Blister Packaging

IMA Safe boasts the widest range of blister solutions on the market, from clinical trials and highly customised tray packaging solutions to ultra high-speed blister machines handling up to 1300 blisters/minute compatible with cartoners managing up to 500 cartons/minute.

In the pharmaceutical feeding systems sector IMA Safe is the worldwide leader boasting an efficiency of 99.9% and extreme flexibility, its feeding systems make up more than 10,000 installations and feature the latest feeding technologies.

IMA Safe can also satisfy all the customers’ needs in terms of layout offering monobloc machines with a positive transport to the cartoner or stand-alone machines equipped with a blister magazine.

Tray Packaging

The IMA Safe range of thermoforming machines reaches high speeds while preserving design and ergonomics, making them easy to use.

A vast choice of products can be packed such as ampoules, vials, syringes and many others thanks to the application of robotic systems in the feeding and connection areas.

Our tray packers can be integrated with different IMA Safe machines; any package shape or presence of lidding material do not impede connection with a cartoner.

The modular design of the lines enables a highly compact footprint and guarantees maximum layout flexibility , which can be designed entirely according to customer requirements.

Tube Filling

Tube filling machines by IMA are designed and manufactured according to highest technological standards, to provide reliability and high productivity in a range from 2000 to 15,000 tubes per hour.

They benefit from simplicity in changeover sequences, quick dismantling of contact parts and an intuitive operator interface.

Special execution for handling of oval tubes, cannulae, rigid applicators and dispensers can be provided; including the specific versions when handling flammable products.

Well-synchronised  with downstream cartoning machines, they are available with different degrees of automation; a wide choice of additional devices, based on many years’ experience within the global tube filling industry, make IMA’s tube fillers suitable to meet all needs.

Sachet and Stick Packaging

Sachet and stick packaging machines by Perfect Pack have been developed to meet any kind of requirement from the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical markets.

All the machines in the portfolio work with intermittent systems and can be equipped with a wide range of dosing systems for any product and accessory to pack. Thanks an advanced technology developed, a high level of efficiency and ease of size changeover and cleaning operations are guaranteed.

Both sachet and stick packaging machines can be easily connected with different downstream machines. IMA Safe is able to offer complete and customizable lines that cover all possible requirements. Different layout solutions are available thanks to the CLA stacking and transfer systems, between primary and secondary packaging.

Tablet and Capsule Counting

IMA counting offers a full product range of electronic and slat tablet counters compliant with GMP criteria and able to process up to 400 bottles per minute.

IMA is the only company offering complete lines of counting machines: unscramblers, desiccant inserters, bottle blowers, tablet elevators, cottoners, cappers and, of course, electronic and slat tablet counting machines, the heart of our production.

High performance is reached thanks to IMA counting technologies, which allow extremely high counting accuracy for maximum performance and minimum time and product wastage.

Secondary Packaging

IMA Safe manufactures equipment, which covers all production needs: from low to high speed, from basic stand-alone equipment to highly customised lines. The possibility of using patented robotised systems makes IMA cartoners compatible with all product types such as blisters, trays, vials, ampoules, syringes, medical devices, bottles, tubes, sachets and strips, flowpacks as well as most non-pharma products.

IMA ancillary equipment are designed to maximise the efficiency of the cartoners and to cover all customer needs: leaflet folding unit, booklet insertion, huge selection of coding systems, bar code reader, camera and printing unit.

Together with IMA BFB, IMA Safe offers complete lines with various end-of-line solutions: shrink-wrapping machines, overwrapping machines, tray packing machines, case packing machines, palletisers and Track&Trace solutions.
