Productivity of Trioplast Group increases 17% as a result of Comexi’s retrofitting service

Services were performed on the flexographic presses, which were acquired by the Swedish company from 2006-2008, to maximise machine performance.

 

Comexi has supported its clients in upgrading their machinery, prolonging equipment lifecycle and increasing performance. One such company is Trioplast Group, which has benefitted from the actions performed by the Comexi service department, and has managed to increase its productivity.

These interventions combine a deep-printing unit maintenance with the implementation of an inking system retrofitting. This service is designed to refurbish machines installed at the factories of Comexi’s customers. The machines are modified with some functional and constructive improvements, adapting the technological improvements of last-generation machines to those already installed worldwide.

Founded in 1965, Trioplast Gorup is a company providing flexible packaging solutions based on polyethylene films. The company is headquartered in Sweden, and has plants located in Denmark, France and the Netherlands. Trioplast Group is dedicated to the production of films, bags, and protective foils, and sells its products to a variety of global markets, which includes industry, transport, and hygiene, among others. Between 2006 and 2008, the company purchased four Comexi flexo presses – two FWs, one FP and one FL – in which the Comexi Service Unit performed a number of maintenance jobs and updates to restore the robustness and effectiveness of printing units, and improve both the performance as well as the outcome of the machines.

Dario Simic, maintenance and infrastructure manager at Trioplast, revealed that the company has been able to increase productivity by 17% as the printing speed is higher and production downtime has been reduced. He added that after retrofitting “quality has improved, and these is less reworking; printing presses are now optimised and the department can be better planned.”

Comexi intends to perform new adaptation measures at the Swedish company’s facilities, with the aim to implement varied services which have been unachievable, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
