Comexi’s ML2 combines versatility and high productivity
Comexi (Girona, Spain), specialist in solutions for the flexible packaging printing and converting industry, launches its latest lamination technology: the Comexi ML2. A top-range laminator designed under two key concepts: versatility and the highest productivity. "These are the pillars that best define this new laminator that, thanks to its ergonomic design, facilitates daily operations, maximising production,” highlights Comexi’s lamination brand manager, Carles Rodríguez. “I like to call it the gadget machine, because is full of new solutions that will delight operators.”
This laminator can work with solvent-based, water-based or solvent-free adhesives. It provides a wide range of lamination and coating options and works with materials up to 1530mm wide and at a speed of 450m/min. Furthermore, it enables all kinds of coatings and applications such as cold seal, heat seal, ink or varnishes. It has five easily interchangeable technological trolleys – gravure with open chamber, gravure closed chamber, solventless, flexo GL and semi-flexo – that satisfy all current market demands. At the same time, customers can configure the drying tunnel – 6 or 9m with 2 or 3 independent zones – to respond to all their needs.
Specifically, the design of the Comexi ML2 began in 2015 after detecting an increasing demand for jobs with multiple solutions that required frequent changes. "This machine was designed to increase productivity; with this technology, changeovers can be done with the maximum speed and minimum waste," emphasises Comexi’s lamination business unit director, Albert Chicote. The laminator has a high precision register control system to meet the highest quality demands of the market. At the same time, thanks to the motorisation of the linear web guide and the Quick Front-Reverse Readingsystem, job adjustments are made with maximum agility and speed.
