n57: The Meeting Point of Sustainable Innovation at the K’2010 Show
K'2010 Show. Visit us in Hall 4 Booth B21
Under the theme "It's K time!” the city of Düsseldorf will welcome the world’s largest trade show for plastics & rubber from October 27th to November 3rd.
Comexi Group together with our partners from COEMTER will be present once again in Hall 4 stand B21. Our value proposition is innovation with the aim of improving the efficiency of conversion processes and the development of environmentally sustainable processes.
Innovation on Efficiency
FOUR will be our magic number. Innovation will be focused on four main axes. Four axes that coincide with the four seasons. Four axes that give life to the range F4. The spring represents an opportunity. Thus, the first axis is entirely based on innovation in new markets. The summer means environment care, so the second axis is focused on cost and emissions reduction to the atmosphere. The autumn is a season with character where we can obtain the best wines. The third season is then about the third axis of innovation, quality printing. Finally, the winter, period of struggle against elements, is the focus of the fourth axis, ergonomics and easy maintenance.
We will exhibit as a new global concept our latest flexographic press, F4 FLEXOEfficiency® which involves a revolutionary concept in flexographic printing, dramatically improving efficiency. F4 FLEXOEfficiency® is a newly developed technology that includes, on the one hand, the tendency of the flexo market to short jobs; and on the other hand, the business expansion by facilitating the entry to the label market. The elimination of photo initiators through eCOMEXI® solutions which utilizes EB Flexo technology in high performance flexographic printing is another possibility offered by this product range.
F4 FLEXOEfficiency®, a new way of flexo printing.
Our booth will include live demonstrations of the new slitter-rewinder with double turret mechanism e-TURRET. The productivity of this type of product is always higher than in a conventional duplex slitter. It is mainly oriented to the overall improvement of efficiencies in a conversion process, in order to avoid the bottlenecks that occur in the cutting area, due to the high down-time of the conventional slitters.
Innovation on sustainability
The brand eCOMEXI® (www.ecomexi.com) includes many innovations related to the improvement of the environmental impact in the conversion processes such as flexography, laminating and slitting. The flexo printing process with Electron Beam inks is VOC free and allows a reduction of power consumption throughout our product range minimizing the emission of CO2 in the atmosphere.
Come to stand B21 in Hall 4 in order to know more details about the innovations of Comexi
Group, applicable to the industry TODAY.
