France’s Morancé Soudure and Comexi strengthen their relationship with new acquisitions

Comexi F2 MC 10-color flexographic printing press has a short setup time, and the French company can reduce costs by changing multiple SKUs
Girona – Comexi, an expert in the printing industry and flexible packaging conversion solutions, and the French company Morancé Soudure France, which specializes in the production of oxygen-degradable bioplastic packaging, have reached an agreement to acquire the F2 MC 10-color flexographic printing press by the French company. This is the second Comexi machine purchased by Morancé Soudure France in 2020 after the French Comex S1 DT slitting machine.
“For various reasons, we decided to invest in the Comexi F2 MC 10-color printing machine. First, we will update our flexographic printing press. We have two old machines from another company; Comexi F2 MC 10-color will be greatly improved. The production of these two machines is replaced by the above. Secondly, we are looking for a flexo printing machine with a very short setup time because it can change multiple SKUs, thereby reducing costs. In addition, the reprint system is a huge asset, It will be our first 10-color flexographic printing machine.”
This French company was founded in 1975 to produce freezer bags in garages and was founded by Jean Pierre Barbier, president of Morancé Soudure, France. For more than 30 years, it has mainly exported its products to North Africa and West Africa. Currently, the company has more than 80 employees in its production plant in Villefranche-sur-Rhone. With the new Comexi F2 MC 10, the French company Morense Sudur will print flexible packaging for food, pet food, frozen food, garden centers and nuclear products.
The Comexi F2 MC printer is designed to provide solutions to the severe challenges of the flexible packaging market. The robust design and state-of-the-art electronic equipment minimize shock and vibration, and enable the converter to achieve ultra-high speed without bouncing. The new drying system reduces the energy required while ensuring perfect drying of the substrate. Inking and squeegee, considered as the core of flexographic printing presses, have been optimized through three different patents on inking system and squeegee design. Cooperation with top suppliers of video and inspection systems has created a complete set of automatic pressure and register setting systems, thereby reducing waste.
The acquisition of Comexi F2 MC 10 colors is an additional purchase of the latest Comexi S1 DT slitting machine, which was acquired by the French company in 2020. It allows us to optimize the productivity of flexographic printing projects because we no longer use the online die-cutting process on the printing press.
