The seminar aimed to focus attention on flexible packaging converting processes and the significant changes these processes have experienced over the past few years as a result of advances in technology, especially in the area of prepress. The meeting also reflected upon the positive perspectives for growth which have led the sector to update and expand its knowledge of the different processes to establish control guidelines. The first part focused on flexo printing and the second on lamination and slitting. Presentations were mainly given by specialised technicians directly linked to Comexi Group, although some external collaborators participated including Siegwerk and Morchem in the area of inks and adhesives respectively. All presentations revolved around the central issues of productivity, trends, color management and the most frequent problems and their solutions.
According to the data provided by the attendees the event received positive feedback both in terms of presentations and organisation and was given a very high average score. Comexi Group believes that the added value from the information provided will result in significant benefits for the customers in the medium term.
This seminar is the first in a series of technical events that aims to establish itself as the meeting point for the flexible packaging sector with periodical editions every two to three years in Colombia. The Manel Xifra Boada Technological Center, in representation of Comexi Group, is clearly committed to the value of knowledge as a strategic base for the group’s future progress and aims to strengthen its status as leader in the flexible packaging sector.
