‘The Comexi Digiflex offers pre-eminent digital printing of variable data such as Datamatrix variable codes, QR codes, barcodes, alphanumeric text and other numbering and marking applications with high-quality requirements,’ explains Pedro Jiménez, digital technical sales director. ‘Digiflex is an all-in-one solution that includes the integration of the curing process, tension control, printing registration, corona treatment and a video inspection system,’ he highlights.
Comexi’s digital press uses low-migration inks that are suitable for food packaging printing and offers excellent results in quality tests (tape, ethanol and scratch). The press allows for the possibility of double-sided printing without treatment as well as printing on pre-printed material.
According to Pedro, the Digiflex reduces set-up times, reaches a maximum speed of 220m/min, reduces material waste and improves lead times. It offers high printing quality with a resolution of up to 1 200 x 1 200dpi, a minimum code size of 8 x 8mm as well as printing and registration consistency.
Different code information
With the Digiflex, each printed code can be different and contain unique information, providing traceable material information, thus personalising products according to consumers’ needs and protecting brands from counterfeiting. ‘The Digiflex codes track and trace each product, complying with legal requirements, as well as contribute to the circular economy, serialisation and security of the supply chain,’ explains Pedro. ‘This machine helps boost customer awareness, brand loyalty and feedback acquisition, and also enables the analysis of consumer behaviour. Finally, the Digiflex offers security, anti-counterfeiting and authenticity solutions, which are highly valued by brand owners.’
Comexi participated with its Digiflex press in the R-Cycle project, led by the Reifenhäuser Group. The unique codes of the press machine identified the plastic type and performed production processes of each packaging unit, which makes recycling more appropriate and efficient.
