Advantage Series

General Information

Advantage - Next Generation

In the past years, the ›Advantage‹ series has set standards for universal edge processing.

It meets all requirements of current tendencies and innovations in the woodworking industries. It covers the full range of edging and panel materials.

The machine can be configured for individual customer demands, specifically in the fine finishing area. Edging tapes up to 3 mm and lippings up to 12 mm thick can be processed economically at variable feed speeds of up to 30 m/min.

Optional systems for panel feeding and panel return extend the scope of performance.

  • Glossary:
  • Production of counter tops

    Production of counter tops

    IMA gantry machining centres (CNC machining centres) combine perfect edge banding, complete removal of residual parts of the panel as well as an almost unlimited supply of edging materials in a system that requires extremely little floor space. Even when batch volumes as low as one are produced, these high-performance installations guarantee production rates that used to be realistic with large batch production only.

  • Drilling technology

    Drilling technology

    The new innovative ›IMAGIC‹ drilling system – the solution for highly-flexible, efficient drilling processes.
    Whether they are part of an integrated line or configured as an independent work cell with fully automated feeder & stacker or manual panel loading & removal, the IMA throughfeed drilling machines can be integrated as a value-adding link into almost all customized processes of your shop production.
    These machines can be found in the industrial production of living furniture, bedroom furniture, kitchen furniture, bathroom furniture and office furniture as well as in the component supply industry.

  • Custom production

    Custom production

    IMA solutions for custom production - New degrees of freedom in the manufacturing optimisation.
    Proven know-how, valuable experience gained over many years and a large number of satisfied customers have made IMA a worldwide leading manufacturer of flexible and powerful woodworking systems, designed specifically for custom production. 
    In the field of integrated lines for the fabrication of furniture components, IMA designers focus on the development of highly efficient and, most of all, individual system solutions – both for large batch production and custom production of batch volumes as low as one: this minimizes the spacing between parts and increases capacity – from the sizing station directly to final assembly.

  • Edge processing machines

    Edge processing machines

    IMA edge processing machines meet all requirements of current trends and innovations in the woodworking industries.
    Individuality in the choice of panel and edging materials as well as high performance in panel processing & edge processing are the No. 1 goal.

  • CNC machining centres

    CNC machining centres

    The ›BIMA‹ C-frame series – the reliable future-oriented solution for cost-effective complete processing of furniture elements and interior design components. Small shops and industrial sites benefit from our intelligent machine concept which has been proving its strength for decades. The head assembly of a CNC machining centre, which may consist of up to two heads, can be specifically designed for all common operations such as sawing, routing, boring or edging banding.  Numerous adapter units are available to meet your individual production requirements.

    With the high-performance BIMA gantry machines, IMA has the optimal solution to respond to customer demands cost-effectively, flexibly, precisely and quickly. The tandem worktable allows partly simultaneous panel sizing and edge processing; that means, edge banding on the gantry front side and sizing, boring and fine finishing on the gantry back side can occur simultaneously. Synchronous processing of complex panel shapes and pendulum-type processing operations which reduce setup times enormously increase the productivity of a BIMA gantry machine.
