Italian supplier of laminated paper, plastic, and bioplastic films, Plastigraf Trevigiana, has installed a Comexi ML2 laminator equipped with jumbo winders.

The decision to configure the machine with an unwinder and a rewinder for reels with diameters and weights greater than those traditionally used will allow Plastigraf Trevigiana to expand its range of products, as well as  offer high-quality tailor-made finishes for all customer needs.  

As a result of focusing, for the past three years, on the lamination of plastic and bioplastic films with a wide range of cellulosic supports, the company has been able to advantageously produce multilayer multi-material products for paper recycling with the use of intermediate materials, which have a low plastic content of fossil origin. The decisions made during this period coincided with an increase of orders and billings, allowing for a workforce and profit increase of nearly 20%.

Alessandro Capoferri, CEO of Plastigraf Trevigiana explained, ‘We have decided to expand our production department, opting to once again trust Comexi and be the first European company to install a Jumbo-equipped ML2 laminator. We are conscious and proud of our ownership of this machine, which is unique within its category. The new Comexi ML2 will allow us to laminate paper reels with plastic and bioplastic films, as well as apply varnishes on the cardboard, while reducing machine downtime to a minimum.’

The Comexi ML2 laminator is a versatile machine and can be configured not only to laminate two materials with solvent-based, water-based or solventless adhesives, but also with lacquer. Furthermore, the machine has the following printing capabilities with a single production line: one colour with flexo or gravure technology; registered or continuously. The Comexi ML2 laminator’s ergonomic design allows daily operations to be performed, simply and intuitively, at the highest speed, subsequently maximising production and minimising downtime.

‘For our company,’ concluded Mr Capoferri, ‘The main objective is to improve the quality of offered products, being repeatedly attentive of the continuous innovations allowed by technological  development, and foreseeing future investments in relation to market demands. Decisions are  consistently made oriented towards understanding and anticipating market needs, thus enabling us to occupy an important position among companies in the field of research and product innovation.’
