IMA Powder filling

Within powder filling, IMA delivers high-quality powder dosing systems for filling into vials or bottles, also for sterile powders.

For both types of powder fillers, we offer standard and customized solutions, which can be integrated with secondary packaging lines.

PPS also supplies different solutions for further tablet production. In here both tablet coating, primary packaging with pharmaceutical blister packaging machines and later secondary packaging. PPS are also at your service when it comes to sterilization solutions.

IMA Injecta Vial filling robotized solution


The use of advanced robotic-driven manipulations versus conventional handling systems improves product quality and manufacturing efficiency.

INJECTA handles pre-sterilised Ready-To-Use containers (syringes, vials or pre-capped cartridges), pre-oriented vials in trays as well as sterilised vials from the depyrogenation tunnel. This allows for high process flexibility and adaptability.

Specialised robots perform all handling activities with no glass-to-glass contact and without operator intervention. The result is less time spent validating aseptic conditions and superior agility for multi-product manufacturing.

  • Precise, accurate and reliable fill-finish process
  • Single rejection of individual non-conformities both from the nest or with de-nesting
  • Perfectly suited to isolation technology or different containment solutions

IMA SMART 300 PWD AUGER High-Speed Powder Dosing & Stoppering Machine

The rising demand for operator safety in aseptic processing, when handling high-potent powdered substances, has boosted the research and the adoption of innovative aseptic dosing technologies replacing the traditional methods.

IMA has adressed issues such as safety, cleanliness and high containment requirements with the IMA SMART 300 PWD AUGER and its innovative powder-processing concept and technology. The auger techonology ensures close to zero product loss.

The SMART 300 PWD AUGER rises to the challenge in high-potent drug processing and ensures accurate decontamination control to avoid risk of residual toxicity and cross-contamination between batches. The machine processes at superior speeds of up to 300 pcs/minute and simultaneously doses two different types of pharmaceutical powders inside the same vial with single 100% check-weighing.

  • Auger powder dosing technology which ensures close to zero product loss.
  • Multiple dosing of two different pharmaceutical powders in the same vial.
  • Advanced 100% IPC with speeds of up to 300 pcs/min.
  • Continuous stoppering unit with adjustable stoppering head by servomotor.

IMA MACRO PWD Powder macrodosing machine

Macro PWD is the result of over 50 years of experience in pharmaceutical powder filling and over 100 machines installed worldwide. Able to satisfy the current safety requirements, it is the answer to the increasing demand for the dosage of dry syrups.

Macro PWD is an automatic intermittent motion machine designed to dose powder, granules and milled products in glass or plastic bottles and jars.

The powder dosing system features the consolidated auger technology, which guarantees extreme precision and product safety even in the case of long production cycles.

Depending on customers’ requirements, the machine is available in three different configurations and ensures easy access to the working area and excellent visibility during production.

  • Accurate and clean filling.
  • Positive transport system.
  • Minimum and maximum bottle inlet/outlet loading sensors.

IMA NEBULA decontamination tunnel

NEBULA is a high-speed decontamination tunnel that eliminates debagging inside the aseptic zone.

Adopting an unparalleled approach, NEBULA ensures 100% sterility of Ready-To-Use (RTU) material as it seamlessly integrates with IMA Life aseptic fill-finish lines.

NEBULA eliminates debagging inside the aseptic zone, as everything in the tunnel is sterilized. This means that your trays with vials or syringes can be debagged before the processing, then the trays are placed in the tunnel, the trays and RTU are sterilized, and they continue through the tunnel to the filling line.

In alignment with GMP Annex 1 guidelines, which emphasize minimizing risks associated with sterility assurance during material transfer, NEBULA stands out.

Some Nebula highlights:

  • 100% sterility of RTU material
  • Seamlessly connects to aseptic fill-finish lines
  • Continuous, high-speed RTU introduction
  • Maximum safety for operator and cleanroom

IMA LYNFINITY Continuos Aseptic Spray-Freeze-Drying

Raising productivity and reducing downtime is now possible in a continuous aseptic process, with constant monitoring from fermentation to final packaging.

LYNFINITY spray-freeze-drying process features a controlled spray of liquid product into a cryogenically cooled freezing chamber. The resultant frozen particles of the liquid product are freeze-dried in the drying module. The drying chamber contents are both transported and heated to promote rapid sublimation and prevent agglomeration.

The continuous spray-freeze-drying process starts with bulk liquid product and ends with the discharge of dried particles, featuring total containment from formulation to powder filling. This enables higher sterility assurance levels, whereas traditional freeze-drying requires additional external material handling, for example during filling. Upon completion of drying, the uniform, dried spherical product allows for the use of a variety of containers (vials, syringes, inhalation systems etc.).

  • Designed for continuous process from fermentation to final packaging
  • Greater throughput flexibility: minimization of scale up and scale down challenges
  • Better quality attributes: improved product uniformity through a gentle drying process
