The finishing department is equipped with cutting-edge technology and performs a 100% quality control through a validated system.

Die-cutting

The die-cutting department is equipped with the best machines, operated by highly trained staff for the production of ampoule trays and folding boxes for medicines and cosmetics.

Cutting registration accuracy, perfect creasing and impeccable embossing are the everyday routine in this department.

The results are guaranteed machinability of folding cartons and the peace of mind for the packaging departments of IGB's customers: the cartons run quickly and smoothly through the packaging lines, preventing delays, production halts and their costs.
The die-cutting department works in close contact with IGB R&D, developing innovative packaging that addresses the most challenging requests coming from clients' marketing offices.

100% cutting alignment

Cameras, mounted on the die-cutting lines, constantly adjust the cutting alignment of each individual sheet, all at the highest speeds allowed by the state-of-the-art equipment.
Each sheet is taken care of, as a single product, according to the lean production principles.
That's why leading pharma companies rely on IGB for precise cutting, embossing and braille text.

Gluing

The brand-new gluing lines are able to mass produce, folding and gluing, any type of folding carton.

This way we can deliver value with products like ampoule trays and folding boxes for pharmaceutical and cosmetic products.

The best value is delivered through:

  • High-speed production
  • Electronically controlled lines that allow to store set-up data for every job, making repeated productions much easier and quicker.
  • Automated packers attached to the gluing lines.

All the lines feature cutting-edge 100% control systems to avoid mix-ups. Pre-press software, ISO 9001 certified procedures and GMPs, together, prevent mix-up.

The precision, required by pharmaceutical companies, is granted.

100% final quality check

All the finishing lines are equipped with high-speed and high-definition cameras, which shoot
each individual product as it crosses the line.
Each picture is compared to the pdf image approved by the customer and only the perfect
boxes go through:

  • The printing is controlled pixel by pixel
  • The orientation of the product on the line is checked to ensure that folds and glues are
    correct
  • The Kurandt code, printed on each product, is read to prevent mix-ups
  • The Braille text is checked, dot by dot
  • Each glue point of each box is detected and compared with the approved
    specifications

IGB quality policy refers to the lean "one-piece flow": IGB never manufactures one
million pieces. Instead, a perfect piece is made one million times.

Relying on these top quality control standards, IGB's customers can save on quality control of in-coming goods.
For this reason the IGB business model is becoming a benchmark for the leading pharmaceutical companies in the world.

Forming

IGB produces paper trays for ampoules, with a focus on environmental sustainability: by using paperboard from FSC and PEFC certified forests, the packaging is more environmental friendly than similar plastic packaging.

The trays manufacturing machine, designed and built by IGB, is the only one of its kind in Italy and one of the most advanced in Europe.
