Comexi and HP Indigo will display the capabilities of their respective technologies through daily live presentations during Labelexpo Europe 2015. Nexus L20000 was recently presented to a selected group of representatives from companies belonging to the flexible packaging and labeling sector at Comexi's premises in Spain. During the open day in March customers highlighted the advantages of using water-based adhesives instead of other technologies such as solvent-based or solventless, and the speed in delivering the product ready for packaging while reducing waste. The compact size of the machine was another point of interest since many premises have space limitations, and both the HP Indigo 20000 and Nexus L20000 need to fit into existing work environments. The need to reduce product life cycles and the boom in personalized and mass customized packaging as a marketing tool are two factors that have caused an increase in short term projects, which demand a faster delivery time. In this respect, Comexi said the Nexus L20000 makes it possible to deliver a package in 24 hours, thanks to the swift, intuitive machine set-up, and the fast curing of the water-based adhesives. This implies a considerable time reduction with respect to conventional solvent-based and solvent-less technologies that might require up to 14 days for final curing. Further, an automatic cleaning system allows full wash-out and adhesive re-filling in 10 minutes, while the unit can switch easily between laminating and coating functions.
