Comexi Will Exhibit Its Innovative Solutions For the Flexible Packaging Printing and Converting Industry at Drupa
Comexi will introduce its innovative solutions for the flexible packaging
printing and converting industry at Drupa. This year, as an exception, the most important trade
fair for the printing industry will be conducted, in a digital format, from April 20 to 23. During the
event, Comexi will present the company’s news in flexographic, offset, and digital printing, as well
as lamination and slitting.
“A primary pillar of Comexi is sustainability and concern for the global environment, which we
extend to our innovative printing and converting solutions. We embrace our responsibility to
flexible packaging, and do not solely believe in finding more sustainable alternatives, but also in
a circular economy as a global solution itself,” explains Jorge Serra, the marketing director of
Comexi. “Innovation, automation, and digitization are our strengths regarding quality professional
services that guarantee the optimal implementation of our products within the industry. All aimed
at making Comexi’s moto a reality: Better Packaging, Better World.”
At virtual.drupa, Comexi will conduct seven free of charge webinars, which are open to all
registered fair visitors. Two webinars will explore Comexi New Launches for 2021 and Comexi´s
Innovative Solutions for Flexible Packaging. Furthermore, the webinars Sustainable Printing and
Sustainability in the Converting Processes will address sustainability. The following three
webinars will discuss Industry 4.0 (Digital Revolution in Flexible Packaging Printing, Profitable
Automation to Increase Performance on Flexible Packaging Processes, and Beyond Printing
Presses: Comexi’s Service Innovations to Boost Your Performance).
Comexi F2 evolution
Drupa is the starting point for the new generation of Comexi machines. To maintain the
ergonomics and efficiency of the Comexi F2 presses, as well as obtain the highest performance
and maximum printing quality with every automation and operator aids developed under
GeniusTech technology, the new F2 evolution incorporates the latest advances in anti-bouncing
systems (GeniusRun), inking systems (GeniusFlow and GeniusDoctoring), and drying efficiency
Comexi Offset CI Evolution
The offset central impression printing technology has evolved since its launch in 2012, with proven
performance in flexible packaging and labels. The new Comexi Offset CI Evolution, equipped with
an EB curing system, provides greater surface protection for monofilm recyclable packaging. It is
solventfree, produces high quality printing, allows for faster prepress, and makes plates at a lower
cost. This new enhanced performance model has new automation features, as well as new
optionals including colour control.
This laminator incorporates new fairings and optionals which will facilitate the conversion of
flexible packaging, making the Comexi ML2 an increasingly efficient machine. Among these
options, the Comexi Closed Loop is prominent, which allows for the automatic adjustment of
adhesive grammage without solvents while maintaining it throughout production. Furthermore,
the automatic adjustment system of mark-to-mark cold seal registration, which avoids operator
intervention and greatly reduces material waste and loss of set-up time. Ultimately, the objective
of these two systems is to facilitate job set-up and make machines more automatic.
Comexi S1 DS
The new Comexi S1 DS slitter is a double shaft machine with a focus on large output diameters,
and has every available automation. It will be able to work at a speed of 1,000 m / min, making it
the fastest machine in Comexi’s history. This slitter offers high efficiency regarding long runs, as
well as optimum changing format agility.
Comexi D4 and Comexi Digiflex
After 67 years of providing solutions to the flexible packaging sector, Comexi will launch new
digital technology machines, enabling the industry to meet the fast-growing needs of the market.
The Comexi Digiflex, an in-line digital bar, which can be installed on analog presses, laminators,
and slitters, is a configurable machine and allows for the printing of variable data, including QR
codes, Datamatrix, barcodes or numbering, among others, at a speed of 250 m / min. As a result
of the In-line UV low migration ink, printing whit this machine is in compliance with the regulations
of food packaging.
The new forthcoming Comexi D4 Water-Based Inkjet Digital press will be a completely
configurable machine of 4 colours CMYK to 8 colours CMYK – OGV and White. This press will
print at a high- and low-resolution speed of 75 m / min and 150 m / min respectively. As a result
of this new technology and the knowledge of the flexible packaging market, Comexi will enable
its customers to profitably and sustainably offer the best solutions in response to the current
demanding needs of the market. In regard to this project, Comexi will works with the top market
suppliers of inks and print heads, such as Sun Chemical and Fujifilm.
