No matter what the shape, dimensions or powdery substances, from soup cubes to sweeteners, confectionary to instant drinks, the answer to your needs for reliability is Prexima, IMA Active’s series of tablet press machines.
Powered by IMA’s experience and expertise in the industry, 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 for medium production output; Prexima 800 and Prexima 800T for high output and double sided or double layer production.
With the use of purposely conceived seals and protections, Prexima ensures complete separation between the processing and mechanical areas. The design solutions also provide the user with greater accessibility: the processing area is fully accessible once the external doors are opened, while access to the machine’s basement is required only for maintenance.
Beyond Prexima’s aesthetics and functionality, tests have been carried out in 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 operators’ well-being.
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 is an essential requirement for high quality tablets guaranteeing 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 is recovered at critical points guaranteeing that it does not go into the processing area, ensuring that the machine is clean, without oil dripping from punches and creating black spots on tablets.
The extraction of the turret is quick and easy, thus reducing machine down-time for cleaning or parts changeover. This also opens future opportunities for new products manufacturing with tiny impact
Prexima is fitted with the XIMA HMI, which was awarded the A’ Design Award for its usability and strategic role in improving the operators’ efficiency. The synoptic screen is based on the principle of natural mapping, which means using spatial correspondence between the layout of the controls and the devices being controlled, thus reproducing the main machine workflow. XIMA ensures prompt responsiveness, enhanced predictivity and easy learning for the operators.
