Comexi Group, machinery supplier in the flexible packaging industry, Inplacsa and Maheso have cooperated to achieve a more sustainable packaging that keeps the quality and the food security characteristics of the frozen products company.
The production of Pop Nuggets new packaging, which will be presented during International food and drinks exhibition Alimentaria 2014, was carried out in a record time, officials say. The three Catalan companies have achieved in less than a week the agreement on the print run and the job production. This was possible due to the Comexi Offset Ci8, which allows companies to make new plates in minutes, providing fast and flexible production, officials say.
Inplacsa, specialists in flexographic printing of flexible packaging, incorporated this new printing technology for flexible packaging in 2012, the year of Comexi Ci8 Offset release. The possibilities offered by the offset press from Comexi Group have also been recognized by Maheso, industry leader in the manufacture of ready-made and precooked frozen products.
The offset technology is characterized by the use of lithographic plates, with much less costs compared with photopolymers or engraved cylinders used in traditional flexo and rotogravure technologies. The cost reduction at this part of the process allows to change the design, language, to add new logos or to make promotional campaigns without additional printing costs, as well as reduce minimum print runs and print film in stock.
