Uflex finalises Comexi holographic laminator at K

Comexi, specialist of flexible packaging conversion machinery, has announced the sale of a new Comexi Futura to Uflex, one of India’s largest multinational flexible packaging materials and solution companies. The deal was closed at the K exhibition in Düsseldorf, Germany, last month.

Comexi Futura is a versatile machine designed to offer a greater value to the product, thanks to all its finishing options. It guarantees a holographic finish through recognised Cast & Cure technology creating a highly attractive visual register effect using a UV lacquer without the need for laminating and is completely free of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). It also offers copy protection to guarantee the genuineness of packaging. Comexi Futura allows cold-foil application, UV laminating, different coatings to give an attractive finish to the product, and the possibility of solventless laminating.

With this new deal, Uflex has made its third Comexi Futura purchase over the last year and this may increase according to the flexible packaging giant’s growth plans in the coming years. The relationship between the two organisations dates back to 2007 when the first Comexi NEXUS laminator was installed at Uflex. Now, almost a decade later, these ties are still throbbing with the sale of more than 20 value added machines.

Comexi president, Manel Xifra, expressing his pleasure over the new deal, said: “We are proud to have become a close supplier for Uflex and are working towards developing new ways to increase our collaboration.”

Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman and managing director at Uflex, added: “The trust between Uflex and Comexi has grown over the years and has contributed to our journey of being ahead of competition.”
