Prexima. All Our Skills. Compressed

No matter what the shape, dimensions or powdery substances, from soup
cubes to milk tablets, sweeteners to instant drinks, the answer to your needs for reliability is Prexima, IMA Active’s series of tablet press machines. Powered by IMA’s knowledge of the sector, designed with unique Italian style, built to deliver top-level performance, the Prexima series will drive your productivity to a higher level of efficiency.

Prexima is the best solution to handle all production volumes: Prexima 80 is designed for small batch production and R&D; the single sided Prexima 300 and Prexima 300T for medium production output; Prexima 800 and Prexima 800T for high out- put and double sided or double layer production.
Prexima ensures complete separation between the processing and the mechanical areas thanks to the use of purposely designed seals and protections.

Along with this feature, the machine design also provides great accessibility.

The processing area is fully accessible once the external doors are opened, while access to the machine basement is required only for maintenance.
The Prexima’s compression support is based on robust columns linked together by strong cast-iron structures. The compression rollers are incorporated within these cast-iron structures and supported on both sides.
This exceptionally sturdy structure an essential requirement for high-quality tablets – guarantees both pre-compression and main compression forces up to 100 kN with maximum reliability.

The lubrication system in the basement of the machine is automated and works with only one type of oil. The lubricant oil does not go into the processing area, ensuring that the machine is clean, with no oil dripping from punches and no black spots on tablets.
Tests have been carried out at the anechoic chamber at the University of Ferrara (Italy) to select the best technical solutions and sound-proof materials. Proxima’s low noise level and minimum propagation of vibration contribute to the operator’s well- being.

The removal of the turret is quick and easy. The HMI guides the operator step by step during each phase of turret extraction. Prexima is fitted with MAX, the new corporate HMI. The synoptic plays a strategic role in improving operator efficiency while ensuring prompt responsiveness, enhanced predictability and easy learning.
Prexima can be installed as stand-alone equipment or connected in- line for direct feeding to IMA Corazza wrappers or other packaging equipment. The conveyor system fitted inside the processing area allows all tablets to be carried to the same exit chute, making for an extremely compact footprint.
