Comexi Solutions Reduce the Energy Consumption of Flexo Press By Up to 40%

21 October 2022

The exorbitant price increase of electricity and raw materials that reduce business margins to a minimum, as well as new and restrictive European laws to reduce energy consumption, are some of the concerns that currently affect most companies, both those located in Europe and worldwide. Comexi is not oblivious to these challenges. To benefit its customers, the company consciously offers solutions that reduce the energy consumption of flexographic press by up to 40%.

Some of these answers are included in the developments of GeniusTech, a set of technological solutions designed to meet the challenges of flexographic printing: the increased drying performance of GeniusDry, and the consume control of GeniusEnergy.

GeniusDry is a mechatronic solution to improve the efficiency of the drying system. It combines software that adapts the system to the actual job requirements with new intercolor and tunnel nozzles. GeniusDry has three operating modes (LO-MI-HI) depending on job characteristics in order to optimize energy consumption, air flow to exhaust and solvent concentration. The various functional modes regulate the flow rate by altering the fan speed and recirculation valve opening. Although new machines are significantly more energy efficient, retrofits of this solution are possible on older machines.

GeniusEnergy provides information related to the operable energy used for a specific job. This information is obtained by adding required measurement devices, such as flowmeters, temperature sensors, among others, for various prerequisite energies. Additionally, a specific software that makes all related calculations is included as well.

Comexi consciously creates these improvements to benefit customers, and searches for solutions to address the real problems they encounter.
