The Perfima Lab from IMA has been designed for R&D and scale up purposes. This laboratory system makes use of some highly advanced technology as those developed for the production range and this enables the processing of all kind of products, giving maximum flexibility and easy scale up. The high degree of automation allows easy operation and maintenance procedures to be applied. Characterised by small overall dimensions, laboratory systems can be easily and quickly connected to the utilities. Perfima Lab can be considered not only as a laboratory coater but also as a machine for small production batches. Thanks to its interchangeable drum, it is possible to work a wide range of capacities from 3 to 60 litres.

The Roto Cube Lab is a compact High Shear Mixer Granulator and Single-Pot Processor for small batch production and R&D applications (3, 6, 12 and 30 litre capacity). The entire process is carried out in one contained bowl: from granulation to the drying of granules. This means that contact between product, operator and environment is minimized.

The Roto Cube Lab is suitable for the development of potent products and allows total batch reproducibility, ensuring high product yields. The tilting system of the bowl ensures gentle handling of granules during vacuum drying to prevent them breaking. The gas stripping system (GA.ST.), by injecting an inert gas through the product mass, enhances the evaporation rate. The machine guarantees a reliable monitoring of granulation and drying, an accurate detection of the process end-point and very easy cleaning operations. Roto Cube is also available in a complete range of machines for production purposes.
