CA3 - Coffee pods packaging machine


Packaging machine for  Heat-sealed soft and hard coffee pods in boxes 

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 cartons at a production speed of 250 pods per minute. 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 is then completed by an integrated,  fully automatic, accessibile and adjustable cartoning unit. The carton and 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 cartoning attachment. 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.
