The Effortless Plate Making and Timeless Production event promises an immersive experience, inviting industry professionals to discover the entire production process, from in-house plate production to printing, lamination, and sliing, all made possible by the innovative turnkey project by Comexi and Asahi. Aendees will witness a revolution in the world of flexible packaging printing.

The event will also host the grand reveal of the Comexi F2 Origin, an advanced flexo press meticulously crafted to redefine the standards of printing excellence. This cutting-edge press is engineered to deliver peak productivity, boasting exceptional ergonomics and user-friendliness for operators. It also features an impressive drying capacity, enabling the use of solventless inks, further emphasizing its versatility and efficiency.

The attendants will be able to experience the simplicity and speed of in-house plate production, transforming your printing operations into cost-effective endeavours.

For the first time at Comexi, the entire process will come full circle. Following the pre-press and printing phases, attendees will witness the converting stage in action. This includes laminating, slitting, and handling techniques that guarantee your products are prepared for swift shipment to your customers

Also, sustainable solutions will be explained, including the seven-colour ink series, Bellissima high-definition screening technology, Asahi's water-wash carbon neutral plates, XPS UV LED systems, Comexi's innovative press solutions, and Tesa's Twinlock sleeve system — innovations that reduce environmental impact.

While alternatives to solvent inks are on the rise, solvent-based inks remain a significant part of the flexible packaging sector, used extensively in rotogravure and flexo printing worldwide. The event will showcase how ECG printing can enhance colour gamut and reduce press downtimes, demonstrating the potential of the Comexi F2 Origin in terms of quality and sustainability.
