The IMA Group at CPHI Worldwide, Barcelona 2023

At CPHI, Barcellona, IMA Group and its specialists will introduce IMA Pharma, the All-In-One supplier specialized in the design and manufacture of automatic machines for the processing and packaging of pharmaceutical, biomedical and nutraceutical products.

In particular you will see INJECTA, a fill-finish machine for Ready-To-Use components that won Best in Show Award 2023 at Interphex NY. The machine’s design exploits advanced robotic technologies to assure smooth processing of the tubs and components with minimal operator access to the working area. At the event you will know about INJECTA’s fully integrated module for

the automatic pick-up and assembly of size parts required to adjust stoppering and filling parameters, according to recent Annex 1 updates. Our experts will also introduce KryoAir, our new 100% green refrigeration technology for freeze dryers using the ultimate natural refrigerant: air.

At this year CPHI there will be a dedicated corner to Continuous Manufacturing; IMA Active’s belief in and knowledge of Continuous Manufacturing have grown stronger thanks to intensive R&D work carried out on two fronts. A more disruptive front of IMA Active R&D consists in the partnership with CONTINUUS Pharmaceuticals, a spin out of Novartis-MIT Centre. While on the other R&D front IMA Active works on continuous processes by revisiting current technologies, embracing a concept of Continuous Manufacturing more closely related to conventional solid forms.

IMA Safe and IMA BFB will be introducing the new frontier of pharma green packaging and applications in terms of recyclable and biodegradable films, sustainable plastic materials and paper – just to name a few – which represent IMA’s concrete commitment to sustainability. IMA NoP (No-Plastic Program), one of the four pillars of IMA ZERO, will be at the centre of the attention, with promoting eco-friendly plastic substitutes for the packages manufactured on the Group’s machines.

IMA GROUP CPHIIMA PHARMA is composed of highly expert divisions able to offer tailor-made solutions in the pharmaceutical market: IMA Active (Solid Dose Solutions), IMA Life (Aseptic Processing & Freeze-Drying Solutions), IMA Safe (Packaging Solutions) and IMA BFB (End of Line Solutions). Together, they combine unique skills and knowledge where people, equipment and technology come in perfect synergy.
