Exclusive Comexi Seminar in Serbia
In April, Comexi (Girona, Spain), a leader in the flexible packaging industry, organised a successful seminar in Belgrade, for Serbia and the Balkans countries. The event concentrated on new sustainable printing solutions for current market trends. Comexi sent its specialists to give high-quality speeches to more than 30 professionals who participated in the seminar. These conferences are in accordance with the experience and knowledge of the Manel Xifra Boada Technology Center (Comexi CTec), which aims to be the driving force behind the flexible packaging sector.
Carles Rodríguez, lamination and offset brand manager, Albert Torrent, slitting brand manager, and Alessandro D’Agostino, area manager for this region, were the speakers leading the seminar, along with Nikola Biga and Jovan Stankovic, Comexi’s representatives in Serbia.
Rodríguez discussed the recyclability of flexible packaging by reducing the number of layers and using recyclable materials. He explained, with great detail, high technological coatings for finishings, optical effects, barrier properties, UV filters, COF modification, and a vast array of different applications. The brand manager also spoke about the primary advantages of the CI offset printing technology, a robust machine equipped with an EB ink curing system, which is completely solventless.
Albert Torrent addressed optimising the use of slitting systems and laser applications, thus answering current market trends with a laser module integrated in Comexi's slitters, and decreasing the production costs through the system's automation. The laser system allows converters to quickly and easily differentiate themselves from the competition, providing a multitude of applications such as easy open systems, the creation of windows, micro perforations, or the insertion of codes.
During the seminar there was also an important emphasis on the Comexi Cloud, a cutting-edge digital platform for the converting sector which is composed of different digital services linked to the machines and the data these machines generate.
"This seminar has allowed us to show the technology and innovations of Comexi to the most important Serbian and Macedonian companies in the flexible packaging sector," explains Alessandro D'Agostino, who adds that "the responses have been very positive. Participants have primarily been interested in sustainable technologies such as offset and flexo printing, as well as laser applications to optimise and facilitate the final use of packaging."
