Comexi CTec has launched a new service whose objective is to integrate the prepress process, from ground zero, into the facilities of its clients.

This turnkey project is a collaboration between various partners, including Esko, Asahi, and DuPont. The project culminates once the client independently produces preprint while adhering to all defined quality standards.

“Prepress control is an essential element for the process, regarding both efficiency and final product quality. With respect to competitiveness, being able to control the process is essential,” says Albert López, head of the Comexi CTec. He adds: “The evolution of plate production technology towards a time to market response influenced by sustainability, suggests that over time, more and more converters will integrate prepress into their own production process."

In order to make the transition as easy as possible regarding cost and time, knowledge is vital. Comexi CTec says that it is equipped with the necessary resources to offer its clients the possibility of integrating the entire prepress workflow through a turnkey project.

The company's technological proposal involves the integration, from ground zero, of a prepress department, and includes hardware, software, installation, optimization, training, and production support until the client is autonomously efficient. The estimated time to complete the project is approximately six months.

The technological proposal has an exposure system with a process of solvent-free plates which produce rapidly. Processing technology can be water-based or thermal, and in less than 50 minutes, the plate is ready for production.
