Due to the machineā€™s high degree of automation, the British company has invested in a leading slitter to improve quality and productivityĀ

Comexi, a specialist in solutions for the flexible packaging printingĀ  and converting industry, and Roberts Mart & Co Ltd, the leading independent company in theĀ  British market for high quality packaging printing, have strengthened their relationship with theĀ  acquisition of a Comexi S1 DT slitter by the British company, which is located in Leeds (UnitedĀ  Kingdom). This purchase is Roberts Martā€™s sixth Comexi slitter, and the second one of this model.

ā€œFollowing another record turnover year, Roberts Mart & Co Ltd has further strengthened itsĀ  converting department with the purchase of a second Comexi S1 DT. It is a market leading slitter in terms of productivity, with a high level of automation, including automatic knife and coreĀ  positioning, and automatic core taping systems,ā€ explains Tim Hilton, a Comexi UK/Ireland agentĀ  who works on location at Pack Support, which believes the British company, with this investment, ā€œremains at the forefront of the flexible packaging marketplaceā€.

ā€œRoberts Mart & Co Ltd has been a very important customer for many years. At Comexi we haveĀ  always had the most innovative solution for their requirements, which are extremely high, and thatĀ  has meant that the synergy between the two companies to be uninterruptedā€, comments RamonĀ  Jonama, Comexi Area Manager for this area.

The Comexi S1 DT is possibly the most automated turret slitter available on the market. ThisĀ  machine provides excellent results in both quality and productivity, notwithstanding the mostĀ demanding projects, due to its regulated control elements and high degree of automation. Cores, knifes, and almost every machine adjustment part is self-calibrating, resulting from an extremelyĀ  interactive and amiable user interface. Its unique automation gives theĀ  operator the ability to load the reel into the machine and, if the configuration is appropriate, toĀ  deliver completed reels, which are palletized and singularly wrapped in bags, without operatorĀ intervention.

The turret of the Comexi S1 DT is able to perform jobs with a large output reel number. Furthermore, it is capable of working with the thickest structures used in the flexible packagingĀ  market, including aluminium, wax, and other hard materials. This machine has the NIP tensionĀ  gap system with which different rewinding and unwinding tensions can be used. Moreover, theĀ  Comexi S1 DT allows for a high degree of customization, as well as many automated options,Ā  such as splicing tables, automatic reel unloading, video inspection camera, and the robotized

labelling of finished reels.
