IMA COMPRIMA tablet press

IMA COMPRIMA Tablet press

Launched on the market in 1995, COMPRIMA is still the state of the art in tableting thanks to its innovative compression system. COMPRIMA ensures yields up to 99.5% with maximum tablet quality.

COMPRIMA is based on an innovative system for powder feeding. The powder is fed thanks to the centrifugal force generated by the rotation of the turret, ensuring accurate feeding of the dies without the risk of powder mix segregation. Centrifugal die filling guarantees maximum production speeds, even with oblong or shaped tablets.

  • Accurate feeding of the dies through specially shaped radial channels: the powder is always contained in a closed path, minimizing product loss.
  • Isolation of the processing area, thanks to the use of seals and bellows: no risk of powder contamination.
  • Clean In Place system for a fully automatic and validatable cleaning cycle.

IMA LUMS Magnesium Stearate dispensing unit

LUMS is IMA Lubrication Unit for Magnesium Stearate able to handle a variety of lubricant powders. Flexible and very accurate, it can be connected to all tablet presses.

  • Efficient handling of effervescent tablets.
  • Easier compression of powders without pre-blended lubricant.
  • Reduction of ejection forces to preserve cams and tooling.
