AVT and Comexi Partner to Update Makeready Process

HOD-HASHARON, ISRAEL | AVT (Advanced Vision Technology) continues its collaboration with Comexi, Girona, Spain, to introduce the next generation of Cingular Real. Companies say the solution aims to ensure the best possible automatic print pressure and register during makeready.

The upgraded Cingular Real is said to offer packaging manufacturers valuable enhancements in the form of significant waste reduction by optimizing the makeready process and enhancing communication between the AVT Argus E Turbo system and the Comexi press. 

Cingular Real was recently installed at the Flexoplast facility of Clondalkin in The Netherlands. compared to the original, Klaas Struiksma, head of the technical department at Clondalkin, says he experienced a 150-m reduction in makeready waste version, as well as a time savings of two minutes each time the press made ready.

The system analyzes the printed image pressure without the use of marks and automatically drives each printing deck to ideal pressure during the makeready process. The solution also compares a PDF file of the printed job and drives the press to perfect registration during makeready, companies say.

Cingular Real is the result of Comexi’s and AVT’s lengthy experience improving the efficiency of converters within the flexible packaging industry. Both Cingular Real and the new upgraded version can operate on AVT’s Argus E Turbo solutions, which reportedly enables customers to enjoy speeds up to three times faster with significantly enhanced system resolution.

Comexi Flexo technical director Jordi Puig says, “The Cingular Real has become an essential part in Comexi flexographic presses for those converters striving to achieve maximum efficiency. The upgraded CingularReal further improves its original version, enabling customers to reduce time and material waste while maintaining the register adjustment according to 100 percent impression.”

“Along with our partners at Comexi, AVT is committed to the continuous development of innovative solutions that save our customers time, materials, and ultimately, money,” says Amir Sheinman, VP Marketing of AVT. “The CingularReal installation at Clondalkin Flexoplast exemplifies the sort of impact our print process control and inspection solutions can provide.”
