Comexi customers and partners can get on-site, at CTec USA, expert training in flexo, laminating, slitting, equipment maintenance, colour management, and pre-press processes. The centre will also allow customers to test and trial materials using onsite machinery. Miami is the company’s third Technology Centre location worldwide.

“The Manel Xifra Boada Technological Centre, Comexi CTec, is fully integrated with our facilities in Riudellots de la Selva. At present, we believe it is time to move forward with the creation of our third technological centre, in order to offer our training services, advice, and technical process support to the printing and converting sectors of flexible packaging industry. Owing to CTec USA, Comexi will be able to provide a more effective response to the needs of our American customers,” explained Albert López, the head of the Comexi CTec.

When completed, the CTec will have a fully operational SL2 solventless laminator, an S2 DT wide-web slitter, and an F2 MP hybrid flexographic press. The Comexi SL laminator is designed for all types of solvent-free laminates, making this machine a perfect sustainable solution. The Comexi S2 DT slitter features a double turret rewinding system providing excellent quality and productivity. Comexi’s F2 MP 60-inches is a versatile 10-colour flexo press designed for a wide range of quality print production.

According to Olof Buelens, Comexi VP and director of North American operations, “the new headquarters and CTec in Miami is a significant investment by Comexi to offer our customers in the Americas better and more extensive services in terms of training, quality, processes, R&D systems, and online ordering. Establishing an expanded parts inventory here also helps guarantee better and faster distribution of spare parts to customers in the US and Canada.”

Customers also benefit from Comexi’s remote support with augmented reality glasses, an operational maintenance programs, custom service program, training, and consultancy.
