• The company based in Melbourne is extending its production capacity with a Comexi FLEXO F4 printer and a Comexi NEXUS SL2 solventless laminating machine
Girona, 26 August 2014.- The Comexi Group, a leading specialist in machinery solutions for the flexible packaging industry, has reached an agreement with Harden Packaging to install a flexographic press –Comexi FLEXO F4- and laminating machine –Comexi NEXUS SL2- in its plant in Melbourne (Australia). Harden Packaging is once again placing its trust in the Comexi Group to extend its fleet of machinery so that it can offer its clients top quality products in as short a time as possible.
“We decided to purchase Comexi again after having such a good experience with our FLEXO FW1508. In seven plus years we have only had very minimal down time due to machine faults, but any minor problems we have had were dealt with swiftly either by the 24 hour Comexi help service or the local electronics service AGS. We are also more than happy with the print quality we are achieving on a day to day basis”, says Harry Young, Harden Packaging’s CEO. “I would add the local agent APT have been very professional in their initial sales and after sales service. As a footnote the solventless laminator is installed and running smoothly much to our delight. Summing up I would say that purchasing Comexi gives us great value for money invested”, Mr. Young adds.
Responding to the trend towards ever shorter runs
The Comexi FLEXO F4 is a flexographic printing press concept designed to satisfy the printing needs in top quality short runs within the flexible packaging sector. The 8-colour machine is available in widths of 670 mm and 870 mm, with print repeats of up to 600 mm. The Comexi FLEXO F4 includes the most sophisticated electronic systems to ensure the best printing quality, and can print on various substrates including plastic film, paper and laminates.
Thanks to its easy job changeover, accessibility to the main machine elements for correct maintenance and the drying unit, this machine is the ideal solution for taking on short production runs and fast client delivery times.
The Comexi NEXUS SL2 is the new laminating machine for working with solventless adhesives, and it is designed with state-of-the-art technologies for maximum reliability and simple operating. The new model is the evolution of the successful Comexi NEXUS Evo; a laminating machine capable of working at a maximum speed of 450 m/min with an available width of 1330-1530 mm.
Thanks to its exclusive design of its metering sleeve, its overall ergonomic design and greater productivity, job changeovers are unbeatably fast. The laminating unit, made up of three rollers, the machine’s robustness and its fully motorised laminating rollers guarantee perfectly even, transparent laminating, free of any air bubbles.
Thanks to its leading features, the Comexi NEXUS SL2 is the best solventless laminating machine in its sector.
