Special Purpose Machines
We operate globally in a variety of manufacturing sectors including food, drink and confectionery, medical devices and pharmaceuticals packaging, personal care, promotional packaging and other consumer goods. With confidentiality as a core value, ITCM generates new IP for the sole benefit of our customers, providing long-term competitive advantage and differentiation in their markets. We are the company responsible for the design and development of the special purpose machines to make the famous pyramid® tea bags, which established a powerful brand identity and market-leading position for PG Tips.
Our core skills include the handling and filling of powders, infusions, liquids, solids and gels. We are also experts in the handling and conversion of reel-fed and board-based materials including delicate filter papers, films, carton-board and laminates. Assembly automation and the use of robotics to support manufacture is another key skill area in the design of our special purpose machines. Our custom packaging machinery is designed to support lean manufacturing by reducing inventory and cycle times, typically facilitating late-stage customisation and rapid changeovers on the line.
Our well-proven, risk-managed process delivers ‘fast-track’ projects providing you with the special purpose machinery for full-scale production, faster than your competitors. We prefer to partner with our customers early in the new product development process thus ensuring a rapid time to market for new ideas, and valuable ‘design for manufacture’ input from the start of a project.
