Spain’s Comexi launches new lamination technology

PKBR Staff Writer Published 01 December 2017

Comexi, a Spain-based machinery supplier in the flexible packaging industry, has introduced new lamination technology to enhance productivity.

The new laminator, Comexi ML2, is designed to work with solvent-based, water-based or solvent-free adhesives. It provides a ange of lamination and coating options.

The firm said that the new technology, which works with materials up to 1,530mm wide and at a speed of 450m/min, offers enlaced versatility and highest productivity.

Comexi lamination brand manager Carles Rodríguez said: "These are the pillars that best define this new laminator that, thanks to its ergonomic design, facilitates daily operations, maximizing production.”

Additionally, the new equipment allows making of all kinds of coatings and applications such as coldseal, heatseal, ink or varnishes.

In order to meet all current market demands, the machine is provided with five interchangeable technological trolleys including gravure with open chamber, gravure closed chamber, solventless, flexo GL and semi-flexo.

The machine also allows customers to configure the drying tunnel to meet their requirements.

Comexi Lamination Business Unit director Albert Chicote said: "This machine was designed to increase productivity; with this technology, changeovers can be done with the maximum speed and minimum waste.”

Additional features of the laminator includes a high precision register control system to meet the quality demands as well as 3-roller NIP technology and other technologies to reduce downtimes.

Comexi said: “While machine is working, it allows loading the next job, centralizes all peripherical equipment, save the parameters of all jobs reel to reel and a vast variety of other possibilities to maximize the performance.”

The firm noted that the ability of the laminator to offer a fast coupling of technological trolleys and dosing sleeves makes it to be a productive and highly profitable machine.
