Comexi Installs A Second Comexi SL2 Laminator at the Yusung Pack Facilities in South Korea
28 January 2021
Comexi, a specialist in solutions for the flexible packaging printing and converting industry, has successfully performed the installation of the second Comexi SL2 laminator at the facilities of Yusung Pack, a Korean manufacturer of plastic packaging for household goods, food, cosmetics, and facial masks. This operation strengthens the relationship between the two companies, which began in 2017 with the acquisition by Yusung Pack of the first Comexi SL2 laminator.
“We have chosen Comexi because we believe, in comparison to market competitors, it provides us with more security,” says Mr. Hong Inseok, the CEO of Yusung Pack. With 40 years of experience in the packaging manufacturing sector, he especially values the ability of Comexi to teach and train employees, stressing that “being able to easily train means reducing the training period of new employees. In other words, the company can maintain productivity even if workers are replaced." Respect for the environment is another strength of the relationship between Comexi and Yusung Pack. "We are constantly studying environmentally friendly methods to manufacture packaging. As a result, this has led us to choose the Comexi SL2 laminator."
Yusung Pack, which counts LG Household & Health Care, CJ and Kyochon among its clients, was founded in 2007 in a small factory with five employees. The company has continued to grow for the past thirteen years, and is currently planning to open a third plant. Presently, Yusung Pack has approximately 50 employees and exports a variety of products worldwide. Despite the difficulties generated by the Covid-19 pandemic, the installation was possible due to the involvement of Hankook Comexi, the Comexi's representative in South Korea. “As a result of this installation, we have shown the market that we can offer complete technical service with Comexi's online support”, explains Mr. Hong Dukkyu, from Hankook Comexi. Furthermore, when considering the current health environment, he emphasizes the difficulty of delivering and installing foreign machinery in South Korea.
The design of the Comexi SL2, due to its uncomplicated ability and state-of-the-art controls, is the ideal short and medium run laminator for a wide variety of materials, as well as the perfect solution for solventless lamination. This machine has been designed to comply with productivity concepts and operation simplicity. The Comexi SL2 possesses an extremely intuitive environmental nuance and has an exclusive applicator head design, which consists of complete motorisation, metering sleeves usage, and the option of incorporating automatic change turrets.
