It’s common knowledge that offset printing is dominating the printing market nowadays with more than 56% printed in such technology. When it comes to flexible packaging, the offset printing scenario is completely different with negligible impact. At the same time, the flexible packaging market have been desperately demanding improved solutions to enhance the printing quality, the waste management, the cost impact of the converting production on to the package and the environmental impact. That is the reason why flexo and gravure printing have evolved to reduce the quality gap with the offset printing.
But now, COMEXI GROUP is offering a new solution based on the offset technology that can shake-up the current paradigm of the flexible packaging printing: COMEXI OFFSET.
The COMEXI OFFSET CI8 press is a new product line based on 6 offset printing units and 2 flexo printing units around a central impression drum (CI) with EB (electron beam) offset inks and Flexo EB for coatings and backgrounds. It is focused on the flexible packaging market on plastic films (light gauge material as PE, BOPP and PET) which embodies the essence of Comexi Group’s strategic principles: innovation with a global impact and the ability to provide the industry with global solutions. The offset printing will be offered to Comexi Group’s customers, giving them the following benefits: lower costs per square meter, decreased ecological impact thanks to the solvent free EB offset inks, high quality (fading screens/fine screens/micro text), higher energy efficiency and the highest capacity of producing offset plates in-house within minutes. The new COMEXI OFFSET concept is primary focused on the flexible packaging and the label market. Specifically:
• Flexible packaging with increasing product fragmentation which lead to short and medium runs. Looking for a high quality, cost effective solutions with a low impact on the environment.
• Label printing for shrink sleeve, wrap around label and IML on plastic. With an appealing look, high quality printing labels, cost effective solution.
This new printing concept will be showcased in Drupa at the Comexi Group booth in Hall 10 C62. Don’t miss the opportunity to see our commitment to the planet.
