Laminate, glue up, lay up, layering… different terms for producing sandwiches of core substrate material with facing sheets in one or both sides. This general principle underlies many processes from film lamination to laying up wall, ceiling and floor panels. Pressure roll laminator machines frequently follow glue spreading or coating operations inside a production line; for that reason, most of the Laminating machine and panelizing machines illustrated below have companion machines within our Coat and Glue sections. Union Tool panelizers and laminating machines are available in roll widths from 6″ to 120″.
MULTI NIP ROTARY LAMINATOR – Union Tool has created a Multi-Nip Rotary Laminator for Engineered Flooring that combines high pressure rolls with hold down rolls to insure proper bonding of Laminated Flooring.
The next picture shows a Nine (9) Nip Machine that incorporates high pressure nip points in the entry and exit nip points. The top pressure nip points use 6.5” diameter rolls together with the top rolls adjustable in relationship to the bottom rolls from to 3”. Each nip point at the exit and entry end in the machine utilizes two (2) 6” diameter air cylinders linked to the top roll to deliver the strain. The center part of the machine incorporates 4” diameter hold down rolls. The best hold down rolls will also be adjustable in relationship towards the bottom rolls and employ two 6” diameter air cylinders to raise and lower the top hold down roll section. The hold down section allows the new melt adhesive to cool down and supply necessary green strength for the next production process. This 9 Nip Rotary Laminator can laminate at speeds up to 100 feet each and every minute.
MULTI NIP ROLL MACHINE – Union Tool has designed a Multi Nip Roll Machine which is used in different industries in laminating door panels and Engineered Flooring. By making use of a number of rolls the laminating panel will probably be within the pressure longer and might have various quantities of pressure using different parts of the appliance. Pneumatic air cylinders give you the down pressure. Several sets of cylinders supply the varying pressures. Rubber and steel rolls are utilized with the upper roll adjustable in relationship on the lower rolls from to 2″. Union Tool builds this Multi-Nip Roll Machine in a three (3) set, five (5) set, and ten (10) groups of rolls machine.
UNION VENEER/VINYL LAMINATING SYSTEM – Boost productivity and product quality with this particular Union equipment package. This Veneer/Vinyl Laminating System has a Union Hot Melt Roller Coater, Fabric laminating machine to laminate a number of different core materials to various different veneers and vinyl materials.
ENGINEERED FLOORING SYSTEM – A whole material handling and coating system for laminating engineered flooring. This engineered flooring system incorporates a hot melt roller coater, lay-up conveyor and multi-nip roll machine. The melt roller coater coats plywood with adhesive and the lay-up conveyor allows a sheet of veneer to become 03dexopky on the top of the coated plywood. These multi-nip roll wood laminating machines are then useful for pressing both the pieces together. Engineered flooring can be used instead of hardwood flooring.
AUTOMATIC HITCH-FEED LAMINATOR SYSTEM FOR COATING PUR HOT-MELT TO WEB-FEED ARTWORK – This complete laminator system pulls artwork from an unwind station and coats the top surface with PUR hot-melt adhesive in a specified area, then pulls the spot-coated artwork right into a hydraulic die-cut and lamination press.
110-inch ROTARY LAMINATOR – A really big rotary laminator for wall panels, ceiling panels and floor panels from the recreational vehicle (RV), mobile home, and fifth-wheel towables industries. Provides laminating pressure for panel sandwiches of substrate cores and facing sheets. Combined with Union Tool 110″ Dual Head Hot Melt Roller Coater, this panel laminating machine creates a complete laminating station for huge panels.
HOT ROLL LAMINATOR – Union Tool hot roll film laminators speed production line application of protective films to one or both sides of EPS foam cores. The programmable controller assures tight tolerances for roll temperature and line speed. Processes foam cores up to 4′ wide by 12′ long.
ROTARY LAMINATOR for wall panels – A heavy-duty rotary laminator to laminate panels to wall stuctures or frames to put up complete wall sections.
ROTARY PINCH ROLL LAMINATOR for substrate lamination – A Cutting press to exert bonding pressure to laminate two substrates or web materials together. Accepts material around 50″ wide (Union Tool laminators can be purchased as much as 120″ wide.)
