RE: and Comexi have partnered to advance digitization within the plastic extrusion and packaging sector, aiming to set new industry benchmarks. In a joint effort, the companies are embracing a holistic approach that allows plastic processors and packaging producers to connect their entire shopfloor, unveiling unprecedented optimization potential seamlessly.
Plastic processors and packaging producers worldwide struggle with integrating data from their conversion processes into the broader production landscape. This encompasses a wide range of critical processes, from print quality and sealing to coating, lamination, and waste management. Existing isolated applications have hindered comprehensive process integration and thus eliminated valuable optimization opportunities.
To tackle this challenge, RE:, a corporate start-up of the Reifenhäuser Group specializing in digital solutions for the industry, and Comexi, a trailblazing provider of printing, laminating, and slitting solutions, have united their expertise.
“At Comexi, we strive to be at the forefront of groundbreaking advances in the packaging sector. Partnering with RE: is a consistent step for us to continue providing value to our customers. Our cooperation goes beyond merely integrating conversion processes. We are ushering in a new age of productivity, quality, and sustainability in the entire production chain,” says Jordi Sahun, chief innovation and technology officer at Comexi.
Daniel Kajan, director product and operations at RE:, explains, “By integrating their conversion operations with the c.Hub Middleware, our customers will achieve unparalleled operational effectiveness, sharper decision-making, and a strong competitive advantage in a fast-paced market.”
The development of the Comexi-to-c.Hub package is a cornerstone of this partnership. For instance, customers can now view and analyze data from Comexi flexographic printing presses in real time, correlate it with other data from the production process, and document key quality parameters.
“We hope that this cooperation will be a spark for the industry to initiate further alliances. The c.Hub can integrate assets and systems of various ages, types, and vendors. The more innovators join our platform, the greater the disruptive power and the benefit to our customers,” says Daniel Kajan from RE:
