Comexi’s Lamination business unit has developed two new laminators, the SL2 Evolution and the ML2 Evolution.
The new SL2 Evolution features a combination of automation, reliability and productivity. This machine is a performing option for solventless lamination for the following reasons: a futuristic design, the completely renovated interface, an exclusive applicator head design (consisting of full motorisation and metering sleeves usage), options to incorporate automatic change turrets, an extremely intuitive touch environment; and overall top-notch options.
Among these latter options, the Closed Loop system is of special interest, as it automatically adjusts and maintains the adhesive grammage without solvents throughout the production process.
The Comexi ML2 Evolution laminator is a highly and extremely versatile machine that is operable with all types of adhesives and coatings: solvent-based, water-based, wax or solvent-less. Furthermore, the machine performs a wide range of in-register applications such as cold-seal, ink or varnishes. As a result, it has a series of easily interchangeable technological trolleys to satisfy every demand. Moreover, the ML2 Evolution laminator has a completely modular drying tunnel that substantially helps to perform a tremendoous number of applications. The winding section can also be configured in accordance with various requirements.
The ergonomic design of the Comexi ML2 Evolution laminator allows for a simplistic and intuitive top speed performance of daily operations, maximising production and minimising downtime. In order to meet the highest standards, the Comexi ML2 Evolution has incorporated new state-of-the-art options that facilitate the conversion of flexible packaging.
These options include the Comexi Closed Loop, which automatically adjusts and maintains the adhesive grammage without solvents throughout production. Additionally, the automatic mark-to-mark registration adjustment system for cold-seal will become an industry milestone, as it does not require operator intervention during the settings, as well as considerably reduces material waste and the loss of adjustment time. The objective of the two systems is to facilitate the job set-up task and make machines more automatic, leading the industry towards fully autonomous machinery.
