Two complete machines with one investment!
As a unique solution in Europe we equipped all of our laminating machines with a blade slitter unit with a side exhauster and this way offering two complete machines with one investment. Following a retooling and the rewinding of the material the laminating machine is converted into a slitter offering us better usage of capacity and quicker ROI.
Laminating Speed: 200 m/min
Slitting Speed: 400 m/min
Laminating width: 500-1500 mm
The side-change sleeve system based laminating work consists of 5 cylinders out of which two are heated in order to control the temperature of the adhesive. The laminating cylinder is an in-built air-cylinder onto which rubber sleeves can be pulled on from the side of the machine with the help of special valves. The rubber sleeves' width is less than the air-cylinder's width and equal to the laminating width. The speed of the laminating cylinder is controlled, raised and moved by detached sevo-motors. The pressing cylinder is moved by pneumatics with central pressure control.
The thickness of the adhesive is controlled by a stageless gear, enabling the application of an adhesive thickness as less as 1 g/m2, though the optimal thickness is around 1.8-2 g/m2. This setting can be changed even during production. A coloured screen terminal is used to control the adhesive thickness, the programming of the meter counter, the cylinder heating, the saving of parameter settings and other functions. Corona treatment unit and adhesive vapour exhaust unit are optional.
By a single switch and re-thread of the material the laminator function can be turned into a blade slitter-rewinder. This means that the two processes are performed by one machine which results in quicker ROI. The inbuilt groove roller's scale is 3mm. In basic configuration the machine is equipped with edge exhaust, which we use when slitting sides of laminated materials. Also, a laser marker is part of the slitting unit. A laser beam marks the point of cutting on the material and the position of the reel holder pipes on both expanding shafts so that setting and positioning of the pipes when slitting the reel is easy. The slitting unit can optionally be equipped with rotary knives for paper slitting as well.
Our adhesive doser unit is designed to store, heat, mix and dose two adhesive components.
It stores the components seperately and moisture-free, pre-heats them, mixes them and doses the mixed substance into the Laminator – Slitter-rewinder machine according to a pre-set proportion with automatic feedback and control so that the level of adhesive between the laminating rolls in the Laminator-Slitter-rewinder is stable.
