The Comexi S1 DT slitter
Comexi, specialist in solutions for the flexible packaging industry, and Wipak Group, manufacturers of highly innovative premium-quality packaging solutions, have reinforced their alliance with the acquisition of four S1 DT slitters, which join the rest of Comexi's slitters and laminators that the global firm has already installed at several of its productive plants all around the world.
The alliance between the two companies dates back to 2005 when the group purchased its first Comexi slitter. Three of the new S1 DT will be integrated with the other slitters in its Walsrode plant, in Germany. The fourth will be installed in the Poland plant.
The S1 DT is a double turret slitting machine capable of high production rates in the most demanding jobs. Independent motors provide accurate tension readings for each turret, and PC Touch-Panels allow for easy opperation, data storage and speed control.
'The slitters are completely automatic, with high added value, dedicated to the conversion of flexible laminates and semi rigid materials such as the ones used for food packaging,' explained Comexi's key account manager, Agustí Combis.
With this new agreement, both companies open up their capacity to offer innovative solutions and flexibility to adapt to any requirement and improve clients' competitiveness. Another Comexi slitter and rewinder, purchased earlier by the group, has been recently delivered to Wipak Nastola.
