Under the theme "Today's solutions for Tomorrow’s demands", the Comexi Group, Sun Chemical and ESI’s Open House was held from 1st to 3th June in Girona Spain. The event recorded more than 200 visitors during three days of intense face-to-face activity with customers.
Once again the three companies demonstrated the ability to organize and draw the industry’s attention to this first-class technology event.
During the Open House the latest developments in flexographic printing were showcased. The commercial and industrial robustness of the EB FLEXO solution was showcased through the combination of the eCOMEXI® Comexi EB flexo press, Sun Chemical’s Wetflex® EB inks and the ESI EZCure system. The success of the event was in the demonstration that EB Flexo provides high quality print that competes with gravure, VOC free production without the use of photoinitiators, and all at a very competitive cost.
A new global concept F4FLEXOEfficiency® was also showcased, which involved a revolutionary concept in flexographic printing. The Comexi F4FLEXOEfficiency® is state-of-the-art technology for low cost per square meter, high productivity printing; in addition to its lower maintenance costs, it is the most efficient solution for short runs and quality flexo printing.
