Comexi, a specialist in solutions for the flexible packaging printing and converting industry with more than 60 years’ experience in the sector, has a wide product range of flexographic presses for short, medium and long runs, which adapt to the market’s most demanding requirements. In today’s world, sustainability and recycling are increasingly gaining interest and becoming more influential. As a trend, end users desire more ecofriendly solutions that include easily-disposable materials, and as a response, Comexi is committed to sustainable printing with the use of water-based and curable Inks.

Attendees to K 2019 will be able to learn more about Comexi flexographic printing technologies. Special attention will be given to sustainability, which will include water-based printing and EB printing systems, which improve the recyclability of packaging. Furthermore, one of the main objectives of the company is to be able to print thinner materials, thus minimizing the consumption of plastic.

In recent years, Comexi has completed its range of flexographic presses, which are adaptable to all of today’s market needs: the Comexi F4 is perfect for short runs; the Comexi F2 is ideal for medium and long runs; and in particular, the Comexi F1 is a press designed to work with long runs, big widths and large repeats.

During the fair, visitors will have the opportunity to view how Comexi is adapting to the fourth industrial revolution, which is an opportunity to optimize production processes. The company has developed the Comexi Cloud, an innovative service platform that can assist customers with the improvement of their plant performance through the analysis of real-time production data, allowing them to build and develop smart factories. This online platform has completely changed the way printers and converters manage all types of processes due to its ability to visualize, compile, analyse, and store all data. Comexi Cloud is composed of different digital services linked to machines and the data these machines generate. Additionally, it allows for quick and easy integration, as well as data exchange with existing management software such as ERP, Plant Control Systems or Maintenance Management software.

Comexi Cloud includes the Comexi Ordering On-Line (COOL), an advanced e-commerce platform which permits 3D visualization of a customer’s digital twin machine, as well as accurately identifying the required spare parts at a faster speed. COOL allows customer to order spare parts with ease through Comexi’s e-commerce service, which is not only faster, simpler, and safer, but also a 24/7 online service.

The Comexi Flexo Business Unit is characterized by innovation, through the continuous release of solutions, which are based on automation and dedicated to solve daily production challenges. Market research points towards a constant reduction of job length due to the quick and continuous demand for modifications by brand owners, giving high importance to solutions focused on achieving quicker changeovers. The Comexi F1 integrates an automatic device for sleeve changeover, an innovative solution that incorporates a robot capable of automatically manipulating anilox, plate, and intermediate sleeves, in turn reducing the required time for a job changeover.

Presently, according to several reports and inquiries, the most concerning topic amongst the flexible packaging converters is the increasingly difficult task of finding expert printers. The objective of Comexi is to make machines which are able to generate relevant, valuable, and real-time production data. Comexi’s data gathering efforts move parallel with two well defined objectives. On one hand there is the complete automation of machine configuration and set up, the latter being based on applying machine learning algorithms to all the data stored in the Comexi Cloud, which includes, amongst others, speed, waste, availability and quality. On the other hand, Comexi is developing the use of predictive maintenance and machine critical stop prediction through the analysis of normal working conditions, and establishing patterns that are considered good behaviour or altered behaviour, which could lead to a critical error, thus resulting in a printing defect or a machine stop.

Comexi Moves Towards Increasingly Autonomous Machines as a Result of Digitalization

The Comexi Cloud digital services platform, in continuous evolution, makes all the necessary information available to customers

A few years ago, Comexi, a global supplier of solutions for the flexible packaging printing and converting sector, realised that digitalisation would be one of the challenges of innovation to transform products and services, as well as allowing machines to become increasingly autonomous. Today, all capital goods manufacturers are immersed in service activities in order to give more value to their customers. This value has to solve their real problems, and offer real, updated, filtered and 24h/WW data. Most likely, one of the biggest challenges facing the industry is to be more competitive in production efficiency. The availability of the machine and the reduction of setups are some of the great opportunities where the technologies associated with Industry 4.0 can have more of an influence by giving visibility to processes and bottlenecks. Additionally, good machine data management is the basis to define preventive and predictive actions that will surely improve production.

The incorporation of a holistic approach to every conversion process will improve a new era of continuous progress that accelerates the decision-making process due to digitalization. For the past years, Comexi had been working on this development, which began showing results in 2016 with Comexi Cloud. This innovative service platform is able to assist customers with the improvement of their plant performance through the analysis of real-time production data, allowing them to build and develop smart factories. Furthermore, this online platform has completely transformed the manner in which printers and converters manage all types of processes due to its ability to visualize, compile, analyse, and store all data.

Comexi Cloud is composed of different digital services linked to machines and the data these machines generate. When the Comexi F4 press was integrated into Comexi Cloud in 2016, the first of these services emerged: Production Analytics. This is the fastest and easiest method to analyse production, understand data and processes, as well as have job costing knowledge of printing and converting processes. This data gives the customer relevant production information enabling them to make the most appropriate decisions. Gradually, Comexi’s other business units have also been integrated, and more services such as Job Costing, Technical Docs, and COOL have been added.

Job Costing: a new service integrated in Production Analytics

Comexi presents a new service which allows the analysis of the production costs and consumptions of every manufacturing order that is executed by the machine. Job Costing gives knowledge and an analysis of real-time production costs and consumption through the data automatically being processed by the machine, including the consumption of energy, ink and consumables, which are generated from the energy consumption module or the ink weighing module.

This new service is fully integrated into the Production Analytics service, giving customers access to the complete cost and consumption history of each production order or machine, in turn enabling them to analyse trends and the future cost or consumption of repetitive projects.The Data Export allows the customers to connect and obtain data from the platform through their internal or external systems, thus avoiding machine manipulation and offering net production data.

This is a new step towards the interconnection and simplification of data management of Comexi’s products, offering plug & play systems that allow customers to focus their efforts on the optimization of their production processes.

Predictive Maintenance: the next step

As a result of Comexi Cloud, customers have at their disposal all the necessary machine information: customers can manage spare parts and consult updated machine documentation. Currently, Comexi is developing the use of predictive maintenance and machine critical stop prediction through the analysis of normal working conditions, and establishing patterns which are considered good behaviour or altered behaviour, and could lead to a critical error, thus resulting in a printing defect or a machine stop.

The objective of Comexi is to make machines which are able to generate relevant, valuable and real-time production data. One path to achieve this, is the complete automation of machine configuration and set up, the latter being based on applying machine learning algorithms to all data stored in the Comexi Cloud, which includes, amongst others, speed, waste, availability and quality. All this would not be possible without digitalization.

In the era of digitalization, Comexi wants to be one step ahead of its competitors, always offering their customers the best options and value-added solutions with their products.

Comexi Received a 2019 FTA Sustainability Excellence Award for Its Life Cycle Analysis

Comexi Received a 2019 FTA Sustainability Excellence Award for Its Life Cycle Analysis

The LCA examines the environmental, social and economic impacts of the Comexi F2 MC flexographic press in order to make across-the-board improvements

Comexi, a specialist in solutions for the flexible packaging printing and converting industry, has received a 2019 FTA Sustainability Excellence Award in the Innovations in Sustainability category for its Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) of its Comexi F2 MC flexographic press. Organized by FTA (Flexographic Technical Association), the 2019 FTA Excellence in Flexography Awards were presented on May 5th at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside (USA), where 39 gold prizes, 41 silver prizes, 40 bronze prizes and 6 Best of Show Awards were given.

The objective of this Comexi project is to continually acquire knowledge and communicate the environmental impact of the manufacture value chain of flexographic printing presses. Through the implementation of eco-designed products, a circular economy strategy has been established, providing to customers with products that are environmentally respectful throughout their life cycle. The LCA examines the environmental, social and economic impacts of the machine in order to make across-the-board improvements, and at the same time promotes healthier working conditions. “The target of this analysis is to identify our environmental impact of the whole life cycle of the Comexi F2 MC flexo machine” says Olof Buelens, Vice President of Comexi North America.

Life Cycle Analysis: the way to be more sustainable

LCA is the unique tool that allows the user to quantify the environmental impact associated with every stage of the product’s life cycle, from the initial extraction of raw materials to the final waste management, while taking into consideration the entire process in between: the processing of materials, manufacturing, distribution, repairs and maintenance. Additionally, the LCA evaluates, identifies and quantifies the use of matter, energy and emissions in the environment to objectively and unequivocally determine the manner in which these processes have the greatest environmental impact, thereby implementing strategies to lessen this effect.

Of importance is the Environment Product Declaration (DAP), a type III ecolabel where the product or service life cycle environmental impact is quantified and communicated. This is done in strict accordance with international standards and it is verified by an independent third party, ensuring its credibility. For this first exercise, the Comexi F2 MC was chosen due to its highly versatile flexographic printing that combines ergonomics and flexibility with the performance and reliability of the F2 range. In addition, it is a press designed to print on various types of plastic materials, laminates and aluminium, providing finishes and a print quality with unprecedented productivity levels in the market.

“With this process, we will reduce several impacts including: global warming, ozone layer depletion, photochemical oxidation, eutrophication, and human health,” stresses Buelens. “The aim of Comexi is to progressively increase the knowledge of the environmental impact of our entire range of products, with the objective of minimizing these impacts, and allowing for compatibility between industrial businesses and the environment.”

“This new, one of a kind technology from Comexi complements our existing capabilities and will enable us to provide a much wider range of packaging solutions for our customers. We are very excited about this addition and what it means for Portco’s future”, stresses Linda Malmstadt, Vice President of Sales & Marketing of Portco Packaging, who also emphasized that “the market for safe, easy to prepare pre-packaged foods is continuing to grow at a remarkable pace. Packaging technology plays a key role in this mix. From food packaging applications like easy open, microwave venting and extended shelf life, to soft security features such as numbering, promotions and bar/QR codes, this technology certainly addresses the current demands of the marketplace”.

Rich Castillo, Vice President of Operations of Portco Packaging, says that “the integration of the Laser system with Comexi world class slitting technology made the decision to work with Comexi on our project an easy one”, and Kent Wall, President of Portco Packaging, highlights that “Comexi’s S1 DS slitter allows Portco to meet the future growing demands of our customers. Having an integrated solution from one supplier helps us ensure that we deliver a finished product that is extremely consistent and of the highest quality”.

The Slitter with laser will be installed at their Southwest Washington facility and will allow them to work efficiently with large and small output diameters rolls with a cost-performance ratio that is especially attractive. Equipped with independent blades and shear cut sets, the Slitter can handle a variety of challenges, as well as avoid oil spillage thanks to its fully electrical system.

Recommended for work with large-diameter rolls, the acceleration ratios of the Comexi S1 DS achieve high productivity by rapidly reaching top speed without the loss of and can handle diverse challenges.

The integration of a laser-in-line processing system allows customization, differentiation and at the same time, performs a wide gamut of applications and finishing processes including the following: micro perforations, macro perforations, design windows, pre-cut adhesive labels, alpha numeric codes and bar codes, security systems and easy open applications.

Olof Buelens, Vice President of Comexi North America, is excited about the continuous growth and partnership between Portco Packaging and Comexi, particularly because Comexi is introducing its latest technology pertaining to slitting systems. It has invested in several new features and innovations with the integration of laser technology, as well as full system automation(s) and capabilities to trace.

This will strengthen Comexi’s presence not only on the West coast, but in North America as well. Currently, Comexi has several major ongoing investments. Comexi has relocated its headquarters from Charlotte, NC to Miami, FL to expand the company’s operations & presence in the region of the Americas. This new 15,000 SF facility will replicate the Technological Center Manel Xifra Boada (CTec) experience, currently at its European headquarters.

This new demo and training centre will give its customers an enhanced experience, in regard to printing, laminating and slitting within the flexible packaging industry, and will offer custom demonstrations.

• several gauges available, allowing many different types of article.
In designing this machine, particular importance has been given
to the easiness of use and accessibility, so that all operations for
regulations and maintenance are facilitated.
The machine is fitted with 8 weft bars controlled by chain links.
As an alternative, two bars can be driven by the weft device,
controlled by eccentrics and 2 levers, allowing for steady weft
movements of up to 50 mm.
The chain is composed of links with involute profile, which guarantee
high operating speeds, reduce the noise emission levels and limit
considerably the vibrations of the machine.
The particular features of the weft bars (protected by international
patent) eliminate any vibrations of the thread-guides and avoid
breakages of needles and of thread-guide tubes.
By means of the SET150/600 and SET/2-290 devices, weft
movements of up to 150 or 290 mm can be effected, adapting the
machine speed to the movement.
The supplementary warp tube bar BPO/S-600F (on request) is
an important feature of this machine: it can be used as second
warp bar, enabling the semi lock-stitch effect to be achieved.
On request, the machine can be fitted with a colour touch screen
controller (DCF-C-M/C) which allows to:
– vary the machine speed
– visualize the machine speed in RPM
– set the sensitivity (time of permanence of the drop wires on the
stop-stems) of weft and warp stop motions separately
– plan a production (pick counter or production unit [m, kg, etc.])
– visualize the production for shift
– visualize automatically the reason of the machine stoppages
– visualize the machine time of running and stopping in hh:mm
(hour counter).
The DCF-C-M/C device requires the machine to be equipped with
a special electrical panel, in place of the standard one: for this
reason the device must be requested when ordering the machine,
since its assembly must be carried out at the COMEZ plant.

Reifenauser Blown Film Polyrema

Producing draw tapes without wrapping

When it comes to draw tape production for bags, until now expensive wrapping was mandatory. We offer solutions that spare this step. Nevertheless, our machines remain universally usable, so that flexibility in terms of applications stays high.

Our winders’ extended cutting units enable direct production of the final stripe widths, so that finished wrapped rolls can be directly processed further on converting machines.

Another big advantage comes from our Ultra Flat Plus Technology, where we stretch film inline to improve film performance in terms of strength. This allows production of thinner films and thereby can generate considerable material savings.

Our technologies are available for Mono- and Co-Extrusion applications.

Constantly improving for a better 2019

Flexible packaging plays an important role in our day-to-day life, whether we buy groceries at the supermarket, take products on the go from the out-of-home channel or when ordering consumer products online.

Packaging attracts people and increases sales revenues of brand owners. Packaging differentiates by means of color and shape, one of the key drivers to attract consumers. Functionality becomes increasingly more important (easy opening – reseal ability) and print quality standards are increasing. Simultaneously, consumer packaging becomes more personal, tailored to consumer needs as to how to use and where to use.

In order to accommodate all these consumer requirements, Comexi continues to invest in the development of smart products and smart solutions.
