The company will exhibit in Hall 17. IMA is bringing a part of its OPENLab to the show, a small scaled laboratory
At Interpack 2023 IMA is set to present itself as an "ever-evolving system: integrated, characterised by a technological and innovative environment, which brings together all its production entities on a single stand".
“Growth, diversification, tradition, innovation, sustainability, world of work, teamwork, centrality of people, virtuous local area, university and training, harmony with the territory, reliability and quality in customer service. These are the pillars of the IMA system," Alberto Vacchi, IMA Chairman and CEO.
With almost 5000 sqm and 46 machines on show, IMA brings together all its production entities on a single stand; a technological and innovative environment, in which each element has its own structural function and each individual finds their own dimension.
INTERPACK 2023 embodies the most unique occasion to discover processing and packaging solutions for the Pharmaceutical, Medical Devices, Food, Personal Care, Tissue & Nonwoven, and E-commerce industries.
At Interpack 2023, the booth’s design will represent the Group’s development philosophy and highlights the key role of sustainability in designing processes and products, outlining a fundamental combination for IMA: respect for the environment and advanced technology.
The booth is crossed by a Central Mile which allows the IMA offering to be presented in an intuitive way, combining the market-specific areas where the Group traditionally operates with those representing the recently entered markets, highlighting new acquisitions, cross-company synergies and news on show:
In the heart of the Future Mile, the Sensing Future Arena, a focal point for sharing and meeting. Here, multiple Talks will follow, 10/15-minute speeches in which technicians, specialists and experts from various universities and institutions will talk about issues related to sustainability, innovation and technology and not only: together with the team of IMA specialists from the various businesses, presentations about lines and new machines on show will alternate, all in an informal environment where questions can be asked and live discussions on technologies can be held.
The square also hosts the Digital Hub, devoted to the IMA Digital project; the IMA ZERO area, devoted to the group’s sustainability project; and the HR spot.
Today sustainability and digital transformation are two sides of the same coin, capable of having a positive impact on business and environment.
The machines speak Digital and tell of the IMA Smart Factory. They are connected, data collected in real time are sent to the Control Room present at the fair and then displayed on the various dashboards. An actual simulation of what happens during production: data analysis, potential implementations and the increase in production capacity, with the support of the industrial metaverse etc. Sustainability and Digital,
opposite and integrated concepts which in the Sensing Future Arena actively converse with each other to complete and enrich the Digital Hub, which is the portal providing access to all IMA Digital products now available on the market.
On show, it will be possible, by reserving an appointment, to get a first-hand look at all the products and services that IMA offers.
The green element comes to life with the IMA ZERO program: the promise of a constant, virtuous, and sustainable approach to the future, in which the Group highlights its awareness that today’s commitment will make the difference in tomorrow’s world. The technologies on show include machines belonging to the LOW and NOP projects, dedicated to the reduction of energy consumption and the research of eco friendly and recyclable materials.
Moreover, IMA is bringing a part of its OPENLab to the show, a small scaled laboratory to illustrate the analysis and research on packaging materials that the IMA Group carries out in its worldwide network of laboratories.
During the event, visitors will be able to run tests on their materials’ samples thanks to OPENLab instruments present:
