With the reopening of the most important international exhibitions, IMA will present the latest innovations and news within its comprehensive range of machines. Sustainability will be at the center of the attention during the event with the IMA ZERO Corporate Project.
Born in 2019, IMA ZERO is the foundation of the Group’s sustainable development program. It has the ultimate goal of minimizing environmental impact in industrial manufacturing and of promoting and creating a working and living habitat that always puts people at the centre.
IMA ZERO is composed of 4 programs, and, during the event, visitors will have the possibility of experiencing two of them: the IMA NoP (No-Plastic Program) and the IMA LOW (Low Impact Program).

With the IMA NoP Program, the Group promotes eco-friendly plastic substitutes for the packages manufactured on its machines. Indeed, the packaging machines on the booth are part of the IMA NoP Project. They can be easily configured and equipped to properly run new generation sustainable and innovative materials such as paper-based, compostable, biodegradable or ultra-thin films and get same performance of old-style plastic films.

Within the IMA NoP Program, IMA has established the OpenLab, a network of technological laboratories and testing area where Material Technologists carry on researches on sustainable materials, technologies and production optimization processes.
Thanks to the implementation of the most modern digital infrastructures, together with think tank spaces, environments dedicated to the generation of ideas and the prototyping of materials, IMA aims to build a connection between knowledge and skills coming from machines, packaging manufacturing and customers.

IMA LOW project embodies the Corporate commitment to increasing sustainable practices to preserve resources. Over the years, IMA has been incorporating this concept both in its organisation as well as in its development policies, for constant adoption and conception of innovative low impact technologies.

For instance, for all new machines developed, there are strict water and electric consumption standards. It is the case of the Vertical Form Fill and Seal machines that IMA Ilapak brings to the show. They encompass an energy recovery system to consume less energy thanks to the “energy saving design with regenerative braking drives”. Needless to add that, anyway, all IMA Ilapak flow-wrappers are equipped with brushless motors to reduce energy consumption.

During the event, IMA will also broadcast from the booth on its social media to present its IMA ZERO Project and its new OpenLab network.
