ICMA develops a turn-key direct extrusion line for pharma application
Icma San Giorgio SPA (Milan, Italy) has delivered in April a complete extrusion system to a major European pharma group. The new line extrudes several types of TPE foil for pharma applications. Gravimetric dosing units, a high-efficient co-rotating extruder ICMA MCM 60 and downstream equipment of a three-roll calender and fully automated winding unit make the line.
ICMA’s turn-key system encompasses complete project engineering with several customized features very tied to customer’s requirements, including solutions for assuring maximum cleaning of the entire process line commanded by critical pharma applications.
The line also incorporates several high tech digital solutions and sensor devices applied to key parts such as the calendaring movements and thickness control, to grant maximum accuracy during extrusion and the highest standard of safety for the operators.
“This is an excellent example of ICMA’s ability to tackle turn-key project from idea to factory start-up where a high level of customized engineering and industrial reliable execution are key factors to succeed. Icma’s capability to combine customization and maximum performance is unique in our industry” said Giorgio Colombo, Managing Director of Icma San Giorgio.
The line was erected and tested at ICMA’s premises prior to installation at the customer’s site.
