IMA Safe Division: the value of safety

In 1976 IMA started manufacturing automatic machines for the packaging of pharmaceutical products by launching the first monobloc blister packaging machine.

Today IMA Safe Division benefits from this valuable heritage together with the experience of the former IMA Packaging Division and other group companies operating in primary and secondary packaging.

IMA Safe Division, whose production plant is located in Italy’s Ozzano dell’Emilia, manufactures for IMA Safe Swiftpack, IMA North America (IMA Safe Nova), Perfect Pack, OMAS Tecnosistemi, IMA Safe Comadis and IMA Safe PG. Such diversity allows IMA Safe to offer extremely flexible solutions suitable for every need: it designs and manufactures complete lines for primary and secondary packaging for the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmetic industries.

IMA Containment technology in blister packaging

IMA Safe meets the most strict safety requirements in blister packaging with customized containment solutions reducing to the minimum the exposure of the operator and the risk of contamination for your product.

The IMA Safe range of thermoforming machines and paper tray packaging lines 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 packaging solutions can be integrated with different IMA Safe machines; 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.

Paper tray packaging line

IMA Safe has developed a highly flexible solution for packaging a wide range of parenteral products and medical devices on paper trays inside cartons, creating 100% paper-based packaging.

Using paper is a valid solution for secondary packaging because it is made from renewable resources, is easy to recycle, has relatively low energy requirements and is biodegradable.
