In Milan, eight Group Companies (ACMA, Atlantic Zeiser, Citus Kalix, FlexLink, GF, HAPA,

Norden and Volpak) will present their latest innovations in production, printing and

factory automation that are aimed at improving production efficiency, increasing the

digitalization of operations and reducing the ecological footprint of packaging for the

consumer and pharmaceutical markets.

ampoules, cartridges, syringes and bottles, will present the AV-E inspection machine: fully

the use of sustainable mono-materials instead of common plastics. The F-11 is equipped

with a new dosing system to meet high levels of hygiene.

Coesia focuses more and more on digital tools and services - fundamental pillars of its

business strategy - to optimize the efficiency of machines, lines, entire factories and

customer service, as well as to enhance solutions that are increasingly sustainable.

In fact, in the two stands (IPACK-IMA and Pharmintech) there will be an area dedicated to

Coesia Digital and customer service, featuring the latest innovations.


Sustainability remains one of the fundamental pillars of Coesia's strategy. The majority of

the machines on display are already able to handle sustainable materials, such as paper

films or mono-material films.

Moreover, a special area of the stand will be dedicated to the sustainability and eco

sustainable packaging offered by Coesia companies.

The Coesia Shelf of Sustainable Solutions will also be on display in the stands at both
