French flexo printing specialist Plastiques Landais has installed an 8-color Comexi F4 at its plant in Castets.
Plastiques Landais is a small French family-owned company, with more than 30 years of experience working as a trade printer in France.
The Comexi F4 is designed for flexographic printing of short runs. Available in a width range of 720-920mm, with a maximum format of 600mm and a top speed of 300m/min, the Comexi F4 has pipeless magnetic blades, patented by Comexi, allowing the printing unit to be changed in less than a minute. The press also has features to minimize strip wear. In addition, Comexi F4 incorporates the direct drive system to synchronize the central drum and the mandrels. This process is possible through encoders mounted directly on the axis, improving the reading accuracy and print register.
The Comexi F4 is Plastiques Landais’ second Comexi press.
Through this acquisition, Comexi said Plastiques Landais can quickly respond to its customers production needs, particularly last minute orders.
‘We were really impressed and satisfied with Comexi printing technology,’ commented M. Schoettel, owner of Plastiques Landais.
‘The Comexi F4 offers many options for us and is also ideal for short runs. We have been able to check and analyze its top performance, high productivity and fast changeovers.’
Olivier Gibert, Comexi’s area manager in this region, , added: ‘We are really pleased with this new acquisition by Plastiques Landais, which has once again relied on the technology and quality offered by Comexi to maintain its level in the demanding French market.’
