With this new acquisition, Cheonil enhances its key role in the South Korean flexible packaging market. The company confirmed that they were interested in Comexi R2 for its drying performance, its capabilities and the possibility of using water-based inks. In a recent visit made by Comexi Gravure Sales Director Gian Vito Schiavi to Cheonil; they affirmed, “With the Comexi R2 unique capabilities in drying performances, we are now able to be an environment friendly company by using only water based inks in flexible packaging industry. We are planning to expand our growth in this direction in the near future thanks to the reliability Comexi is offering us."
Schiavi highlights the value of this new acquisition. “The Comexi R2 gravure press will certainly boost Cheonil’s productivity. This press enables faster job change with trolley and has the best register control and energy saving systems, as the enterprise was looking for." This is the second Comexi equipment that Cheonil installed at its facilities. Some years ago, the company purchased a Comexi SL2 solventless laminator and, currently, they are interested in acquiring another gravure printing press that will work with water-based inks.
