Uruguayan flexible packaging specialist Strong has acquired a Comexi S1 DT slitter to automate more production processes at its Montevideo facility.
Strong is an Uruguayan family business that belongs to the Macció Group. The company has over 40 years of experience in producing all types of flexible packaging at its 15,000 sqm facility in Montevideo.
‘As a result of high productivity, we acquired this slitter, a machine that will offer the possibility of automating more processes,’ said Gustavo Caraballo from Strong.
‘For us, it is very important that a company such Strong has decided to invest in a highly productive machine as the Comexi S1 DT. This operation shows that this type of slitter has its place in the Latin American market,’ commented José Luis Soriano, area manager at Comexi.
The S1 DT is a slitter that offers quality and productivity due to its state-of-the-art control elements and a high degree of automation. Cores, knives, laser heads, photocells, and almost every adjusting element of the machine are self-calibrating. This unique automation lets the operator load the reel into the machine and deliver finished reels without human intervention.
The turreted version of the Comexi S1 DT can perform jobs requiring many output reels. It can also work with thick materials used in the flexible packaging market, including aluminum, wax, and other special or complex materials. The Comexi S1 DT allows a high degree of customization, and many automated options, such as splicing tables, automatic reel unloading, video camera inspection, and label robotization of finished reels.
