IMA Active’s experience and expertise in the pharmaceutical industry have been carefully channeled into Prexima, the new series of tablet press machines brought out by the company. Powered by IMA’s knowledge of the sector, designed with unique Italian style, built to deliver toplevel performance, the Prexima series is the best solution to handle all production volumes.

A key feature of Prexima is the complete isolation of the processing area. The machine ensures complete separation between processing and mechanical areas thanks to the use of seals and protections designed on purpose. Limited surfaces in contact with the product reduce cleaning times as well as avoid cross contamination. In addition to extending the duration of cams, tooling and compression rollers, the machine lifecycle is longer.

Prexima has also been designed for accessibility to enable straightforward operations, easy inspection and cleaning. The processing area is fully accessible once the external doors are opened. Cam, rollers, and other components in the mechanical area are immediately visible when the side protections in the processing area are removed. Except for maintenance purposes, access to the machine basement is not required for machine set up, changeover, or cleaning operations.

Everything that we have gained over years of experience and expertise in this field has been carefully channeled into this new range of tablet presses, confirming our ability to anticipate all future challenges and our firm commitment to developing new solutions that incorporate the most advanced technology. Our aim for the next three years is to increase our market share in tablet press machines, while consolidating our wide range of products aimed at driving our customers’ productivity to a higher level of efficiency.”

The extraction of the turret is quick and easy thanks to a rotating arm completely housed in the mechanical compartment. The turret can be removed completely with dies and lower punches, thus preventing the powder from falling into the mechanical area through lower punch bores. The Human Machine Interface (HMI) guides the operator step by step during each phase of turret dismounting.

Positioned in the machine basement, the lubrication system is automated and works with only one type of oil. The lubricant oil does not go into the processing area, hence can be recovered into an apposite container and recirculated. As a result, the machine is clean and requires less maintenance, with no oil dripping from punches and no black spots on the tablets.
