ALMA is known as the bespoke tailor of Thermoforming and Blister Packing Machines. And throughout the Food, Medical, and Industrial sectors, that’s a name we’re proud to hear and glad to have earned over four decades of work!
ALMA focuses on the manufacture of strictly made-to-order Thermoforming and Blister Packaging Machines. Each of our products is customized and equipped with the components actually required by the customer’s specific needs: this approach allows us to optimize packaging efficiency on each single product, at the same time minimizing waste on used materials.
ALMA’s packaging machines are the result of an ongoing research process, always aiming at significant increase in flexibility, versatility and cost-effectiveness. Each machine we deliver to one of our customers has been designed with their specific needs in mind, both from a performance and from a functional standpoint –in the Food, Medical, or Industrial sector – whether it uses Thermoforming or Blister Packing technology!
THERMOFORMING PACKAGING MACHINES
Thermoforming packing machines allow for the creation of very unique packaging in varied and complex shapes. Proven to be among the most attention-catching packaging choices and thus leading to greater sales, thermoforming uses a plastic sheet or film – depending on thickness - that is heated to a temperature where it becomes pliable, shaped in a custom-made mold, and finally trimmed.
BLISTER PACKAGING MACHINES
Blister packs are used to package products of all kinds, and also find specific application in the pharmaceutical sector. The advantages of Blister packaging lie in attractiveness and full product visibility, and also assurance of integrity even on a single-dose level. Blisters are made by affixing pre-formed plastic pockets to a cardboard or plastic backing, or even by folding them on themselves and heat-sealing them in what is known as a clamshell blister.

AL.MA Thermoforming and Blister Packing Machines are designed and equipped with specific tools and accessories according to the application field: food, medical and industrial.
Our packing machines are extremely strong and equipped with a self-supporting body. This means that AL.MA. machines are suitable for operating in harsh environments. Unless a customer makes a specific request, all AL.MA machines are generally built in a sole piece.
It is not necessary to disassemble the machinery for the shipment, except for some of them carried out by sea. Once the machine enters the customer’s factory and is located in the designated area, then the power supply, the compressed air and the refrigeration chiller at closed circuit are implemented. In a short time the line will be functioning.
