Prexima. All Our Skills. Compressed.IMA Active knows all there is to know about mixing, granulation, tableting, filling and coating. Today, we make that knowledge available to the food and dairy industry with a world of tailored solutions.

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 ma- chines. 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 efficienc. 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 output 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 precompression 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.  Prexima’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.
c is fit ed 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 conveyer system fit ed inside the processing area allows all tablets to be carried to the same exit chute, making for an extremely compact footprint.
