The acquisition of the Comexi machine enables Primcut AG to meet increased demand.

This machine enables the Swiss company, which specialises in the manufacturing of labels and banderoles, to react to a sharp demand increase. This sale is the latest of several machine orders from Switzerland in 2021, including an F2 MB flexo press, a Comexi S1 DT slitter with laser, and the robotisation for a slitter.

Cost saving and environmentally friendly

"The Comexi L20000 is a water-based laminator that minimises waste at the start of a job, an essential benefit to address the growing trend of short runs, which is cost saving and reduces environmental impact," explains Ramon Jonama, Comexi's area manager in this region. "Primcut AG prints on narrow webs, and the Comexi L20000 will allow the company to make laminations and coatings meet the increase in demand. We are very pleased with the results obtained in Switzerland, where we have been consolidating our leadership position thanks to our sales in recent months."

Flexible packaging, labels, banderoles and tickets

Primcut AG is a specialist printing company for international customers in the industry of flexible packaging, labels, banderoles, and tickets. Founded in 2008 in Krummenau, the company relocated to Neu St. Johann in 2019, the present location of its headquarters.

In response to increasing market demands for short run production, the design of the Comexi L20000 laminating machine is based on concepts addressing time-to-market, productivity, profitability, and sustainability. As a result of the machine’s high energy drying efficiency, minimum waste, extreme web tension control precision, and reverse application system, which is specifically for water-based adhesives, the Comexi L20000 is reported to be the optimal solution in combination with digital printing or other narrow web printing systems, such as those used by Primcut AG. It is an extremely compact machine with a fully automated washing system that allows adhesive changes in less than 10 minutes, thus boosting productivity.
