Once again this year on November 18th, Comexi Group held their Open House at Comexi facilities, which gathered more than 150 attendees in just one day. Along with the collaboration of DuPont, Comexi was able to organize another event this year brimming with business and relationship building opportunities for their customers. With a large turnout and customer enthusiasm, it was a huge success.
The event kicked off at 9am with a guided tour of the production plant. Then, for the first time worldwide, the new flexo press COMEXI FLEXO F2 was presented. Based on the FLEXOEfficiency concept, this wide band machine is intended for medium and long runs and offers high quality printing with all the latest technology in improved energy efficiency and maximum productivity. Printing demonstrations were performed with the most advanced photopolymer plates, DuPont Cyrel® FAST Round, which gave customers the opportunity to see samples of these firsthand. The new FLEXO F2 concept features several new technologies: Monoblock, Virtual Master, Easy Touch display (with a more advanced pressure adjustment system), a new doctor blade support system and an improved ENERGYSavvy concept that applies a set of electrical control technologies to save energy and improve the energy efficiency of our products. During the show, customers were able to see a demonstration of these new concepts, among others, with a panel of new technologies in the machine for the first time.
Mr. Manel Xifra, President of Comexi Group, emphasized the importance of "being a family business, which guarantees the existence of a long-term vision, an appropriate strategy, a professional management team capable of implementing such and the preservation of the values set by the family. As part of the process for professionalizing management and as we announced some weeks ago, Mr. Jaume Martínez, who up until now has been a general director, was appointed CEO as well”. He also explained that “Comexi Group is in the middle of a bold strategic plan to consolidate itself as a worldwide leader in flexible packaging. This plan is based on providing the market with a complete range of equipment and services with the most innovative solutions in the different product lines and on leading the development of solutions that improve sustainability in the flexible packaging sector."
Another innovation that was exclusively presented worldwide was the new central drum offset press under the trademark COMEXI OFFSET CI8. This new product embodies the essence of Comexi Group’s strategic principles: innovation with a global impact and the ability to provide the industry with global solutions. As a world exclusive, this new product will be offered to Comexi Group customers, giving them the following benefits: added productivity, decreased ecological impact thanks to the solvent-less EB offset inks, greater energy efficiency and lower costs per square meter. Its presentation to event attendees fulfilled many expectations and was a huge success. It will soon be presented at events with high media impact.
The visit rounded off with a presentation of the latest available rotogravure bodies from COMEXI ACOM, a technology recently acquired by Comexi Group with their production plant in Piacenza (Italy). And last but not least were the COMEXI PROSLIT with S-turret and the COMEXI NEXUS Optima 2H model.
This year the motto Innovation Made spearheaded the event. In light of sharing their newest innovations with their customers, Comexi Group organized an event aimed at presenting their latest concepts and offering exclusivity and commitment to their customers.
