Comexi ML2 Laminator
Versatility and High Productivity
Comexi, Girona, Spain, specialist in solutions for flexible packaging printing and converting industry, has launched its latest lamination technology: the Comexi ML2 which boasts versatility and a high productivity.
The new 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 1530 mm (60.2 inch) wide and at a speed of 450 m/min (1467.4 ft/min). Also, it enables all kinds of coatings and applications such as coldseal, heatseal, 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 9 meters with 2 or 3 independent zones – to respond to all their needs.
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" emphasizes Comexi’s Lamination Business Unit Director, Albert Chicote. This laminator has a high precision register control system to meet the highest quality demands of the market. At the same time, thanks to the motorization of the linear web guide and the Quick Front-Reverse Reading system, job adjustments are made with maximum agility and speed.
The Comexi ML2 has 3-roller NIP technology that allows applying a higher pressure at a lower point of contact, thus obtaining a uniform pressure across the lamination NIP, offering the highest optical quality and reducing breakage or wrinkle generation.The new laminator is fitted with two panoramic screens with latest generation software and graphics, and a user-friendly touch design that facilitates its use and maximizes efficiency. While the machine is working, it allows loading the next job, centralizes all peripherical equipment, and saves the parameters of all jobs reel to reel. It also offers a fast coupling of technological trolleys and dosing sleeves that make the Comexi ML2 a highly profitable machine and, above all, a productive laminator.
