28/05/2014 - NEW CA3 for VERTICAL POUCHES




The CA3 monobloc machine evolves into a newly designed line for the packaging of coffee SOFT or HARD pods into VERTICAL HEATSEALED POUCHES ensuring a discerning, practical and cost-effective solution.


The IMA CA3 is a monobloc machine capable of packing, in a modified and conditioned atmosphere, both SOFT and HARD pods containing coffee, heatsealing them in a protective outer envelope and finally packing them into vertical pouches at a production speed of 250 pods per minute as an alternative to the standard cartoning unit.

IMA has designed and manufactured the CA3 according to the highest efficiency criteria, and in particular, to an extreme flexibility while guaranteeing the best product quality on the market. Thank to an advanced system for coffee dosing and compression, a homogeneous coffee distribution inside the pod and a great precision of its profile are guaranted.

Further more, the product quality is guaranteed thank to a heatsealed outer envelope that represents the greatest protection against product oxidization. The machine production cycle might then be completed by a fully automatic vertical pouch forming, filling and sealing unit or, in alternative, by an integrated, fully automatic, accessibile and adjustable cartoning unit. The count size change over can be performed easily and quickly, especially thank to the electronic count. 

The modular system on which the NEW CA3 design is based, is most evident in the easy connection with end of line packaging machines as alternative to the above mentioned packaging units. The whole production cycle is controlled and handled by an integrated PC that guarantees the correct machine operation and above all the final product quality.
