A compact slitter Comexi S2 DT was installed at Flexiplast, an Ecuadorian company founded in 1994, which specialises in flexible packaging production.

Distance not an obstacle

During the installation of this brand-new slitter, performed at the facilities of Flexiplast in Quito, the distance between the plant and the headquarters of Comexi was not an obstacle. The success of the project is primarily thanks to the considerable involvement of the entire Flexiplast team, together with the support of the Comexi slitting department and the local Ecuadorian technical assistance team.

“We are very pleased with the remote installation of the Comexi S2 DT slitter. This machine will allow us to continue offering services to all our customers, despite the difficulties of the current global pandemic situation,” says Arturo Sanchez, manager of Flexiplast.

In an effort to make the lives of customers more uncomplicated, Comexi had set out, well before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, to facilitate launches and machine operations as strategic key pillars of the company. Presently, and during the past months, this approach has been an enormous success as can be proven by several remote installations.

A higher degree of automation

In regard to its line of products, Comexi has been working towards automation for an extended period of time. In particular, the slitting division focuses on automation, in order to differentiate itself from competitors and offer both slitters as well as end of line automation.

In the market, there are more than 100 Comexi S2 DT slitters, which offer high versatility in the range of materials. With this slitter, quality and quantity are both possible. Operating the Comexi S2 DT is extremely easy and intuitive, thanks to the enormous work that has been done to offer a pleasant, comfortable and agile interface.
