UnionPlast increases capacity with Comexi

UnionPlast has acquired an entire Comexi production line, including an F2 MB flexo press, an SL3 laminator, and a Compack 2 slitter

Flexible packaging specialist UnionPlast has acquired an entire Comexi production line, including an F2 MB flexo press, an SL3 laminator, and a Compack 2 slitter for its newly constructed plant in Lurín, south of Lima.

Since 1983, UnionPlast, with over 150 employees, has been dedicated to producing flexible packaging, printed and non-printed, for the general industry. 

‘We are in the process of growth and modernization. Presently, our plant is situated in the district of San Luís, but in the coming months, we will relocate to our new facility, on a 10,000 sqm piece of land, south of Lima, in Lurín,’ said Miguel de la Flor, manager of UnionPlast. ‘The growth of the company confirms that we need to increase our production capacity. We have chosen these three Comexi machines not only for their technology and equipment quality but also for Comexi’s 24/7 service and the trustworthy local representative.’

The Comexi F2 MB central drum press is designed for short and medium print runs within the flexible packaging sector. This flexo press has the patented FLEXOEfficiency concepts of ergonomics and accessibility, as well as the performance level and robustness. All of these features are integrated with a simplified drying system design. 

The Comexi Compack 2 slitter is a compact and fully electric ergonomically designed machine. In addition to permitting adjustments, it maneuvers the slitting process after the progression of material. The tension-separating NIP system enables the device to use various tensions while rewinding and unwinding. 

The Comexi SL3 is a packaging laminator designed for converters managing many printing projects that do not require high tensions. Due to the efficiency and compactness of the machine, the Comexi SL3 has an intuitive user interface, making it easier for operators to use.

‘Comexi and UnionPlast have a long relationship that solidified in 2017, after the purchase of a Comexi F4 flexographic press, which enabled the Peruvian company to improve productivity,’ said José Luis Soriano, area manager of Comexi. After securing the new Lurín plant project, UnionPlast once again entrusted Comexi and finalized the agreement to acquire a complete printing, laminating, and slitting line. UnionPlast especially values our technical support as well as the local service we offer.’
