Comexi, founded in 1954, has extensive experience in manufacturing equipment for the flexible packaging conversion industry. As a world leader, it operates five product lines, each specialized in a different conversion process: flexography printing, offset printing, laminating, slitting, and digital services.

In 2016, Comexi, a global supplier of solutions for the flexible packaging printing and converting sector, launched Comexi Cloud in response to the digital revolution which was transforming the world. This innovative service platform assists customers with the improvement of their factory performance through the analysis of real-time production data, thus allowing them to build and develop smarter factories and capitalize on the extraordinary opportunities which this new digital era has brought to the flexible packaging sector.

Comexi Cloud, the most comprehensive online platform on the market to visualize, compile, analyze, and store all data, has reinvented the manner in which printers and converters manage every type of process. It is composed of various digital services, which are linked to machines and the data that these machines generate.

“The tools with which Comexi Cloud provides enables us to make more efficient decisions,” explains Simone Weber, plant manager at Maxiplast Embalagens, a Brazilian company specializing in the production of flexible packaging and raffia bags. Maxiplast began using this digital platform two years ago, after purchasing a Comexi FW 1508 flexographic press, with multiple benefits. “Due to Comexi Cloud we are able to compare past and current item configurations. Furthermore, it allows us to store old processes”, says Weber, who especially values “Comexi Cloud’s ability to provide, via telephone or the Internet, remote access to all printing processes in real time. Consequently, we are capable of knowing the exact performance and production speed of an item, as well as any obstacles that may have occurred during the process. All of this can be accomplished in real time with the use of my telephone or from my
home”.

The Five Components of Comexi Cloud Production Analytics is the fastest and easiest method to analyze production, as well as understand data and various processes, including job costing knowledge of printing and converting processes. This data reveals relevant production information to customers, enabling them to make the most appropriate decisions. Job Costing gives knowledge and an analysis of real-time production costs and consumption through data which is automatically processed by the machine, including the consumption of energy, ink and consumables. As a result, this module provides print information regarding the total cost per m2 for a specific period of time.

The platform includes Comexi Ordering Online, which permits 3D visualization of a customer’s digital twin machine, as well as the accurate identification of the required spare parts and the option of quickly purchasing ordering them online. Maintenance Assistant is a tool for machine maintenance management, data analysis, and preventive maintenance digitization, which takes into consideration the different life cycles of machine parts. Due to Technical Docs, customers always have access to every up-to-date machine documentation.

The result is a comprehensive virtual platform, accessible from anywhere 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Comexi Cloud, just like stockage en ligne, offers everyone the necessary information to evaluate and improve their work, becoming the perfect combination of machine, user, and virtual platform, among other
benefits.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
