Products from IMA Industria Macchine Automatiche S.p.A

  • Xtrema

    Product Xtrema

    XTREMA, High Speed Filling and Stoppering Machines for Aseptic Environments

    XTREMA fundamental characteristics respond to the industry’s stringent technical requirements of vial filling, and with its flexible and ergonomic design it assures the most complete possibility to integrate modular equipment, and, why not, even to install multiple filling systems (liquids & powders) to be used alternatively within the same machine frame. Processing all vial sizes in the SVP and LVP range and changing from continuous to alternate vial transport motion by HMI, Xtrema is your filler for output loss minimization at high speed up to 600 vpm with 100% IPC. And, with the “Quick Fit” feature of the filling pumps -CIP/SIP ready-, no tools are needed nor to get in touch with product contact parts. Ideal for exposure to H2O2, Xtrema is suitable for integration with isolation technology or other containment solutions.

  • DYNAMICA -  Continuous motion cartoner

    Product DYNAMICA - Continuous motion cartoner

    Flexibility as key feature: this Series offers the widest range of products to be packed, carton dimension range and applications. Moreover, DYNAMICA S version is able to combine both the continuous and the intermittent motion depending on the product fed.

    The ergonomics, in terms of carton magazine, product flow and leaflet folding unit heights, is maximum. Last but not least, DYNAMICA is also compact but at the same time easy to manage and intuitive to set up.


  • Sensitive AP400 CW

    Product Sensitive AP400 CW

    SENSITIVE AP400 CW

    Carton labelling machine with 100% check weighing system

    The SENSITIVE AP400 CW is one of the latest developments in the field of carton labelling. Integrated with a 100% check-weighing system, it is conceived to apply labels onto three of the carton’s sides while complying with the latest Track & Trace and serialisation statutory requirements.

    The machine features one further major advantage: determining the weight of every single carton throughout the production process while occupying a footprint of 2400 mm.

    A highly precise positive transport system is the key to achieving rigorous production quality control, accurate product coding and verification processes.

  • Vega

    Product Vega

    VEGA: Rotary washing machine

    Vega is a washing machine for bottles, vials, ampoules and unstable cylinder-shaped containers. Born to satisfy the most stringent market requirements, it is available in four different models featuring a continuous rotary motion to reach very high speeds while ensuring accurate decontamination.

    Able to handle a wide range vial diameters, it features positive transport and mounts up to eight washing stations with independent connection to avoid cross contamination among the washing media. The innovative washing needles are designed for a plug and play manifold connection and the full brushless technology allows moving the entire needle carrier with the maximum precision.

    The design of the grippers prevents sliding of the containers and maintain them at the same height to avoid any risk of breakage or contact with the washing needles.

    Washing circuit, recycle tank and washing skid are housed in the machine frame with great accessibility. Although this Vega features a very small footprint ensuring easy handling and installation. The absence of mechanical cams guarantees fast maintenance and improves production time.

    An intuitive HMI completes the machine allowing visualisation of machine status, operation mode and production reports, additionally it guides the operator through troubleshooting issues, change of recipes and adjustment of parameters.

    Vega can be installed in-line with other machines by means of the necessary connecting units.

  • Lyomax

    Product Lyomax

    LYOMAX, Industrial Freeze Dryer

    The freeze-drying process of today demands increased process control, with reduced processing time augmented with upgrades in equipment to remain compliant with a changing regulatory landscape. To accommodate such growth, IMA LIFE uses its in-depth process knowledge to make freeze drying faster, safer, cheaper, and compatible with all industry requirements and challenges. LYOMAX configurable options and custom designs provide the optimal solution for each application.
    LYOMAX meets the highest possible technical requirements, the strictest standards of the global licensing authorities, and comply with all the current guidelines such as GAMP, cGMP, FDA etc.

  • Injecta

    Product Injecta

    INJECTA, Fill-finish Machine for Ready-To-Use Components

    INJECTA is the latest solution from IMA Life, at the forefront of processing Ready-To-Use syringes, vials and cartridges. The machine’s design exploits advanced robotic technologies to assure smooth processing of the components with minimal operator access to the working area. INJECTA’s ground-breaking innovation is performing 100% in-line quality control from the nest or with de-nesting. Advanced robotically driven manipulations and state-of-the-art innovative design make INJECTA a real step towards perfection. 
    INJECTA’s latest improvement consists of a gloveless robotic module for the automatic pick-up and assembly of size parts required to adjust stoppering and filling parameters.

  • C80HS - Blister packaging machine with integrated cartoner

    Product C80HS - Blister packaging machine with integrated cartoner

    The line’s innovative design, in terms of both structure and functional detail, has been developed keeping in mind the market request. C80HS Series, double-lane blister machine, not only has high production but also has the advantage of being extremely efficient: even if the downstream machine stops the rejection is minimum thanks to the blister recovery magazine.

    Last but not least, a complete accessibility in the connection area is guaranteed.
