IMA CA1 represents the latest and most challenging innovation in the single dose coffee packaging sector, guaranteeing the highest efficiency together with the most compact machine layout, and perfectly in line with IMA’s traditional concepts. IMA CA1 is a unique high speed machine able to produce soft pods in a single lane, counted, stacked and packed into a heat-sealed stand up bag.
The compact machine layout (4.3 mt.) and the integration of all auxiliary units such as the pod counting and stacking unit, pack forming, filling and closing and weight checking guarantee at the same time the highest efficiency as well as simplified maintenance and improved user-friendliness of the machine itself.
A remarkable saving in packaging material is also guaranteed. CA1 is equipped with a gas flushing unit to introduce nitrogen into the pack during its forming process to avoid coffee oxidization. This system ensures a very low oxygen residue (<1%).
