Talking about assistance today more than ever, it has become for CO.RA. the main objective to assist all customers where they need it.

More and more CO.RA. offers a 360° service guarantee: to be ready at all times to intervene, remotely or on site, with specialist technicians that assist the customer to choose the right solution, with tests in the company’s technology center and during installation or with the start-up with CO.RA. qualified servicemen. Also staff training performed by CO.RA. servicemen is on the list of possible services. The usual lead time for technical assistance is within 48 hours from report of the problem. Sharing proposals, solutions and technologies with customers to transform projects into reality, is important opportunities for growth, which made the company one of the leaders in the field since its founding in the 80ies.


Today CO.RA. can boast of a vast experience in the supply of Integrated Systems and Turnkey Plants for pharmaceutical and chemical companies.
The staff is able to guarantee all customers
360° services, providing established and/or experimental technologies, technical competence, reliability and collaboration: necessary ingredients that go beyond the supply of a simple plant.
Despite the current situation, that is our context, CO.RA., through suitable technological tools, is also present for its customers abroad, through remote assistance
solutions and remote qualification
tests, with SMART solutions within reach of each device. 

The attention to detail, which the staff puts in the foreground, has given rise to the creation of a plant designed, built and qualified in accordance with cGMP principles. Only with an HMI panel it is now possible to define a recipe, monitor the main operating parameters and control four coordinated dosing lines to create a single bulk.  

In particular, the control system was programmed and customized according to the specific needs of the customer and in consideration of the aspects of data integrity.

The plant consists of 4 stations, each of them complete with STERI LIFT, HR CRUSHER, BAG EMPTYING, DOSING SYSTEM and BIN.

Each station allows the loading and dosing of an ingredient which, mixed with the others in subsequent processes, will formulate the finished product. The BIN will be automatically moved by the system to receive the quantity of product foreseen in the recipe set by the general control panel. Once the fourth station is reached, the BIN is automatically returned to the starting point, ready to be transported to the next processing step.

The qualification activities were performed remotely with the help of high-quality equipment and professional and specialized staff.


CO.RA is able to offer complete service packages to their customers, from choosing the best solution, to installation and after-sales assistance.
