Reliability, consistent quality and easy maintenance; the new PDP24 press for stock cubes from IMA Corazza
The new PDP24 press for stock cubes is the latest in a long line of IMA Corazza solutions for the food industry. Globally recognised as leader in dairy and convenience food packaging technologies, IMA Corazza is not only a trustworthy source since 1954 and a partner capable of tailoring each solution to specific customer requirements, but also the only supplier to manufacture and deliver pressing and wrapping machines as a seamless integration for high-performance stock cube processing lines. But, enough about the brand; let’s have a look at the technology.
Six features to support your needs
Like any cube, there are six sides to the story and the PDP24 boasts as many reasons for making it the number one choice. Thanks to its 24 punches, the PDP24 processes up to 3000 ppm, ensuring consistent quality and weight, even with challenging recipes, thanks to double compression phases carried out on pre-compression and final compression stations. Designed with a space-efficient concept to minimise the footprint, it also guarantees excellent hygiene standards, keeping the production area segregated from the mechanical housing. Through a more efficient design, maintenance operations and related costs are drastically reduced and punches and dies can be easily replaced for fast changeovers, ensuring flexibility for format change between 4 and 13 grams as well as non-standard sizes. Flexibility also comes in the form of processing capabilities since the PDP24 will adapt reliably to different powder types, always ensuring efficiency in achieving the customer’s targets.
Together in one line
There is one aspect of IMA Corazza worth highlighting: a strength which is unrivalled in the industry. From a company that engineers and manufactures equipment dedicated to stock cubes, the PDP24 press integrates perfectly with the I Series Side Fold wrappers, also developed by IMA Corazza. Whenever a customer has to perform a format change, as the machines come from a single manufacturer, intervention times are minimum and productivity gains momentum. Performance, technologies and flexibility from a one-stop supplier; the benefits are multiple.
