The Comexi Offset CI8 press is the result of combining the advantages of offset variable size printing with central drum technology. It is the best solution for short and medium size runs, embraces the demand of time to market and printing quality, reduces operating cost, and has less of an environmental impact. The offset central impression printing technology is a two-fold environmentally responsible option, as print is done without solvents and frontal printing, with EB protective varnishes, allows for the replacement of laminated products or the reduction of the number of layers due to the capabilities of chemical, thermal, and scratch resistance of EB lacquers. As a result of combining multiple SKUs within the same print job, which reduces waste and changes, the Comexi Offset CI8 provides maximum flexibility. Furthermore, the Comexi’s central drum offset printing allows for faster prepress and job changeover.
