Oriol Rabert, a Comexi area manager in the Middle East and Bharath Yalla, managing director of Reifenhäuser Middle East and Africa (RMEA), explained: ‘This is a very important operation for us. The geographical location of Madayn Plastic Company allows us to reach potential clients from all over the Middle East and India. Having a showroom in Oman will help us to demonstrate the full potential of our flexographic printers and laminators,’   
 
This project, led by RMEA, reinforces the successful relationship between Reifenhäuser and Comexi, which has been a success in India, for many years, and now extends to the Middle East.  
 
‘The investments of Madayn Plastic Company in Comexi and Reifenhäuser machinery will allow the Omani company to produce a substantial amount of flexible packaging within in the country,’ Rabert said.  
 
The Comexi F2 ML printing machine is suitable for large format jobs such as polyethylene market for wrap around, hygiene, as well as most pet food sizes. The F2 ML incorporates GeniusTech technology is claimed to address lack of skilled operators, a job length reduction and an increased number of job changes.   
 
The press is equipped with automatic job setup technology GeniusPrint, GeniusDrive for high quality print, GeniusRun and GeniusDry.  
 
‘This is the first Comexi F2 ML we have sold in the Middle East and India; it will undoubtedly be the most complete flexographic printer ever installed in Oman,’ Rabert added.   
 
The press is the first 1.5 meter F2 ML built by Comexi.  
 
The Comexi ML2 Evolution laminator can be configured to laminate two or more materials with water-based, solvent-based or solventless adhesives. It can also be used as a coating machine, as a gravure or flexo printing unit - at register or full covering.  
 
The Comexi ML2 Evolution includes options for conversion of flexible packaging. These include the Comexi Closed Loop, which automatically adjusts and maintains the adhesive grammage without solvents throughout production.   
 
Additionally, it is equipped with the automatic mark-to-mark registration adjustment system for cold seal. It is claimed to eliminate operator intervention during the settings and reduce material waste and the loss of adjustment time.
