Wipak Polska adds second Comexi S1 DT slitter

Poland-based Wipak Polska has acquired second Comexi S1 DT slitter

Poland-based Wipak Polska, part of a Finnish global supplier of premium quality, sustainable flexible packaging Wipak Group, has acquired second Comexi S1 DT slitter. The company added the slitter for its quality, high productivity, and incorporated safety measures. The first machine of this type was purchased in 2017.

Wlodzimierz Glapa, managing director of Wipak Polska, said: ‘The Comexi S1 DT slitter is a machine that fully meets our demand for top quality at high speed regarding the packaging of films converted in our plant.’  
 
Firstly, safety, as the machine is equipped with all the necessary measures that protect our employees from injuries and safety incidents. Furthermore, the operation of the Comexi S1 DT slitter is straightforward and intuitive. The second reason for the purchase references the machine’s quality, which concurs with high productivity of the slitting process.’ 
 
Wipak has been present in Poland for many decades, serving its customers with sales and distribution. In 2013, the company relocated to Skarbimierz Osiedle, establishing a new production site dedicated to the manufacturing of pouches and convert films supplied by other Wipak plants.  
 
Since this moment, Wipak Polska has increased its productivity and capabilities, thus strengthening its position as a flexographic printing hub within the Wipak Group. The company primarily serves the food and healthcare sectors.  
 
The Comexi S1 DT is a slitter that provides control elements and high degree of automation. As a result of an interactive user interface, almost every adjustable element of the machine, including cores, knives, laser heads, and photocells, are self-calibrating. Without the need to intervene, automation of the Comexi S1 DT allows the operator to load the reel into the machine and deliver finished reels. 
 
The turreted version of the Comexi S1 DT can perform jobs that require numerous output reels. Additionally, it is claimed to operate with the thickest materials used in the flexible packaging market, including aluminum and wax. The Comexi S1 DT offers high degree of customization, as well as automated options such as splicing tables, automatic reel unloading, video camera inspection, and label robotization of finished reels. 
 
Wipak Group provides sustainable flexible packaging for food, medical devices, and pharmaceutical products. With 11 manufacturing plants across Europe, the Wipak Group and Comexi began their relationship in 2005, when the Finnish company acquired the first Comexi slitter. The purchase of other laminators and slitters has subsequently strengthened the confidence between the two companies.
