GIRONA, Spain—Oasis Flower Plant for Plastic, a leading producer of PET preforms and HDPE closures in Saudi Arabia, has reached an agreement to acquire a Comexi F2 MB flexographic press; this is the first joint operation between the two companies. The Asian company has decided to rely on Comexi’s experience and technology, as it primarily is seeking printing projects to address the needs of various customers, especially those in the beverage sector.
“This is an extremely important operation for us”, said Oriol Rabert, the Comexi area manager of this region, who highlights that “we have demonstrated that our customers, due to our flexographic technology, can achieve identical special color results as those obtained with a rotogravure press.” This project is in addition to others that Comexi is developing in this region, which also involve the installation of several flexographic printing machines.
Located in Al-Kharj, south of Riyadh, Oasis began in 2012. Thereafter, the company has increased its production capacity every year to manufacture more than 5 billion units annually for its customers in the water bottling sector and other industries.
The Comexi F2 MB flexographic press is not only the best machine for combining short and medium runs, and but also to manage a full range of flexible packaging applications. The F2 MB features every ergonomic solution of the F2 family. It incorporates GeniusTech solutions to assist printers in conquering the primary challenges they currently face, which include a lack of skilled operators, job length reduction, and an increased number of job changes, among others. The utmost importance has been given to solutions that focus on providing the quickest job changeover, such as the GeniusFlow for fast cleaning, various automatic setup solutions, including GeniusSet and GeniusReg to shorten time and minimize waste, or GeniusData, which allow stores every existing job parameter to be reused, thus shortening the startup of a new job.
