IMA Group won the Best Packaging Award 2022 with the overwrapping machine HYWRAP20, in the category “Innovation and Technology”.
The machine was selected for its flexibility: the HY(BRID)WRAP is a hybrid solution suitable for wrapping with paper, traditional plastic material (OPP), compostable and recyclable films, without changing its configuration or components depending on the material.
“When wrapping with paper – IMA Group says – the machine does not require external gluing units, which would make the gluing areas inaccurate and increase the amount of glue required for sealing, consumption and maintenance costs. The glue is incorporated in a minimum quantity on the paper sheet, only in the necessary edge areas to close the packet”.
Moreover the HYWRAP20 has been reconceived in its functions and design: it’s easy to use by operators, and can reduce consumption.
The prize was awarded during the IPACK-IMA exhibition.
