COMEXI GROUP and Wikoff Color Corporation are partnering in Drupa to showcase the latest innovation for the flexible package printing. These innovative and open-minded partners are driven by the same goal: Sustainability. At Drupa 2012 they will show the printing of low-migration, solvent-free inks for food packaging with a central impression offset press.
The COMEXI OFFSET CI8 press will demonstrate the possibilities of offset printing on a light gauge plastic material, thanks to the central impression lay-out. The offset printing will be offered to Comexi Group’s customers, giving them the following benefits: lower costs per square meter, the highest capacity of producing offset plates in-house within minutes, decreased ecological impact thanks to the solvent free EB offset inks, high quality (fading screens/fine screens/micro text) and higher energy efficiency. Impressive samples and live shows will be demonstrated daily.
Wikoff will highlight their commitment to the sustainable printing by showcasing their Regal EB lithographic inks, which are a proven set of process colors that have excellent print properties and very stable performance on press while being widely used in many food packaging applications. These inks are sharp-printing and have excellent adhesion to paper, paperboard, and many plastic films. They are suitable for receiving a clear topcoating, such as Wikoff’s EB Coating, or they may be reverse-printed on clear film and covered with an opaque white, such as Wikoff’s EB Flexo White.
Sustainable printing is at a turning point. Visit us at Drupa 2012, Hall 10 C62 where both companies are eager to share their achievements and will invite you to join them on the pathway to sustainability.
