Comex, a leading printer in Poland for highly processed, technologically advanced self-adhesive labels has invested in a Xeikon 3030 digital label press designed with variable web widths and dry toner technology. The company states the investment strategy is to expand its business through increased production capabilities and continue to provide exceptional customer service in the region and beyond. Founded over 30 years ago as a commercial printer, Comex can now combine its unique and innovative RFID technologies with Xeikon’s latest dry toner technology to produce a broad range of complex multi-layer, peel-off labels and personalised designs for the pharmaceutical, flexible packaging, food, beverage and cosmetics industries as well as mass event tickets with varying levels of security for sporting and cultural events.
Marzena Kostrzewa, Comex Vice President says, “This is our second investment in Xeikon technology. We have had many benefits from our existing Xeikon 330 bought a few years ago. In the last year, we have seen a constant rise in the number and variety of orders for jobs. This has led to a requirement to broaden our production portfolio. That is why Comex decided to invest in the proven dry toner technology from Xeikon. We are known throughout Poland as specialists using our advanced and innovative solutions to combine printing with the latest RFID technologies. We had to find the right press to meet our needs and the demand.”
Comex has a variety of customers with different requirements. For example for the wine industry the company needed to take into consideration the raw materials they use to make their products stand out. Kostrzewa continues, “We found Xeikon’s dry toner technology irreplaceable when overprinting on highly absorbent materials. When we recognised the stability, the intensity of colour and the smoothness of overprint achieved we knew we had to have this technology in our portfolio to be able to serve the needs of all of our customers.”
