Engineered Films, a Clondalkin Flexible Packaging Division business unit, has invested millions of Euros in two new Comexi F2 high-speed printing presses for its manufacturing locations at Flexoplast in Harlingen, the Netherlands and at Wentus in Höxter, Germany

The presses allow the two businesses to offer increased capacity, and greater manufacturing efficiency and flexibility to their existing blue-chip customer base as well as allowing additional customers to take advantage of top quality printed film laminates product range produced by Flexoplast and Wentus, the firm said.

Engineered Films has not specified how much it invested in its new kit.

The latest presses follow significant production investments at both sites over the past five years.

These capital investments included a Comexi F1 10 colour press, Comexi 8 colour press and Reifenhäuser 5-layer barrier extruder at Flexoplast and a Comexi F1 8 colour press, Reifenhäuser 5-layer barrier cast film line, Langlaser slitter and Norrdmechanica duplex lamination machine at Wentus.

Engineered Films managing director Jeroen van der Meer said: “The Comexi F2 Flexographic printing presses are state-of-the-art machines enabling high definition printing that achieves excellent colour quality and vibrant images to enhance our customers’ brands and product shelf space impacts.

“These enhancements are increasingly important for our customers as packaging convenience and presentation quality are key differentiators as customer buying behaviour is strongly influenced by the efficiency and feel and look of packaging.”

The expansion in production capacity will enable further growth in key market segments including pre-packers and fresh food, frozen food and alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages.

Van der Meer explained: “Sustainability is one of the key drivers of our corporate social responsibility policy and the new presses are equipped with advanced technologies to reduce energy consumption and to decrease set-up and printing waste.”
