Chapter 01 #highcustomizedlines

From concept

Total flexibility

For over 50 years, IMA Safe has been investing in developing its internal know-how to offer solutions capable of satisfying every market need, maturing over time with unparalleled flexibility in the development of totally customized lines. Efficient and innovative solutions allow the realization of packaging of any type of product, even in its most complex configuration.

Thanks to a rigorous study of line layouts conceived on the actual space and on the customer production needs, the connections between the machines are designed to completely adapt to the surrounding area without affecting the performance of the line.

This is why an IMA Safe line is synonymous with flexibility.

To Reality

There’s always a solution

We like to think of a line as a 360° customer-structured project: it communicates to us what it wants to achieve and we work as a team to provide it with a line that exactly fits its request, always adding something else.

For this reason, over the years we have been able to collaborate with some of the most important pharmaceutical companies in managing the most complex projects. Thanks to the consolidated reliability of IMA Safe, numerous customers have chosen brand new technologies and solutions.

Case studies
