Caihua is a multinational company that disposes of different facilities in Japan, United States of America and Canada. It is recognized as one of the leading technology companies in the production and lamination of all type of materials for the flexible packaging industry and, currently, is among some of the main companies in Asia. Its products are widely used in the pharmaceutical, agriculture, electronics and food fields.
Three years ago, Caihua acquired three other Comexi machines that have helped them to boost its efficiency and effectiveness. With this new installation, Comexi strengthens its presence and expansion in the Asian continent where the group has installed hundreds of machines in the last 10 years.
Comexi’s CI8 offset press provides maximum flexibility in the production process, allowing a very short time-to-market due to its agile prepress system. It is characterized for the use of lithographic plates, with an approximate saving of 95% compared to photopolymers or engraved cylinders used in traditional flexography or gravure technologies.
Besides, Comexi’s offset technology is capable of generating significant savings due to its quick creation of plates, which can be made in the same customers’ facilities. Moreover, this innovative press replaces solvent inks for EB curing technology, which allows use of solventless inks.
This press prints in 8 colors with a band width of 900 mm (35.4 in) to 1.100 mm (43.3 in) and a maximum speed of 300 m/min (984.2 ft/min). Its high print quality and quick-change capability along with the low costs in producing the plates are some of the main elements that characterize this innovative press. In the last years, the number of commands of this printing technology has doubled and is continuously growing, especially in Asian countries.
