Attendees had the opportunity to learn about the most recent developments from Comexi: the new technical and specific laminated solutions which offer sustainable solution to our customers; innovations in offset central impression printing with new automated software for faster and more precise colour matching; Comexi’s commitment to sustainable printing with the use of water-based and curable EB Inks, and the high value solutions in slitting such as microperforation, QR codes, easy-open windows, among others, due to the company’s expertise in laser.
The closed chamber roto gravure trolley and the Comexi Flexo GL trolley are a perfect match for the different coating trolleys of Comexi multipurpose laminators, further enhancing the company’s range of solutions across the whole flexible packaging industry.
The new generation of offset CI8 press, introduces new solutions for colour matching and colour stability. The new iCIP3 software perfectly matches pre-press colour information with both CTP and press, creating a harmonized colour matching process. Furthermore, the SOP (Standard Operation Procedure) details the set up and usage of both iCIP3 and ink fountain control to reduce the sensitivity of process operating skills. As a result, the high level of colour management automatization renders a more standardized, simpler, and accurate colour matching process, leading to a fast, efficient, and consistent set up time and waste reduction.
In today’s world, end users desire more eco-friendly solutions that include easily-disposable materials, and in response, Comexi is committed to sustainable printing with the use of water-based and curable inks, as water-based printing and EB printing systems improve the recyclability of packaging.
In recent years, Comexi has developed modular solutions for the S1 slitter range, allowing greater automation of both, the slitting process and that which immediately follows. Due to its expertise in laser, the company offers high value solutions which give converters the turn-key solution and the added benefit of making life easier for the packaging end user.
