Laminate, glue up, lay up, layering… different terms for making sandwiches of core substrate material with facing sheets using one or either side. 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 within a production line; for this reason, a lot of the Laminating machine and panelizing machines illustrated below have companion machines inside our Coat and Glue sections. Union Tool panelizers and laminating machines can be purchased in roll widths from 6″ to 120″.
MULTI NIP ROTARY LAMINATOR – Union Tool has created a Multi-Nip Rotary Laminator for Engineered Flooring that mixes high-pressure rolls with hold down rolls to insure proper bonding of Laminated Flooring.
Another picture shows a Nine (9) Nip Machine that incorporates high-pressure nip points at the entry and exit nip points. The high pressure nip points use 6.5” diameter rolls using the top rolls adjustable in relationship towards the bottom rolls from to 3”. Each nip point at the exit and entry end of your machine utilizes two (2) 6” diameter air cylinders linked to the top roll to supply the strain. The middle portion of the machine incorporates 4” diameter hold down rolls. The most notable hold down rolls may also be adjustable in relationship towards the bottom rolls and utilize two 6” diameter air cylinders to increase and lower the very best hold down roll section. The hold down section allows the melt adhesive to cool off and supply necessary green strength for the next production process. This 9 Nip Rotary Laminator can laminate at accelerates to 100 feet per minute.
MULTI NIP ROLL MACHINE – Union Tool has created a Multi Nip Roll Machine which is used in various industries in laminating door panels and Engineered Flooring. By making use of a number of rolls the laminating panel will probably be under the pressure longer and will have various numbers of pressure using different parts of the appliance. Pneumatic air cylinders provide the down pressure. Several sets of cylinders supply the varying pressures. Rubber and steel rolls are being used using 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) sets of rolls machine.
UNION VENEER/VINYL LAMINATING SYSTEM – Boost productivity and product quality using this type of Union equipment package. This Veneer/Vinyl Laminating System has a Union Hot Melt Roller Coater, Hot melt laminating machine to laminate a number of core materials to a variety of different veneers and vinyl materials.
ENGINEERED FLOORING SYSTEM – A total material handling and coating system for laminating engineered flooring. This engineered flooring system includes a hot melt roller coater, lay-up conveyor and multi-nip roll machine. The new melt roller coater coats plywood with adhesive as well as the lay-up conveyor allows a bit of veneer to get 03dexopky on top of the coated plywood. These multi-nip roll wood laminating machines are then employed for pressing the 2 pieces together. Engineered flooring can be used rather than 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 most notable surface with PUR hot-melt adhesive in the 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 within 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 very large panels.
HOT ROLL LAMINATOR – Union Tool hot roll film laminators speed production line implementation of protective films to one or either side of EPS foam cores. The programmable controller assures tight tolerances for roll temperature and line speed. Processes foam cores as much as 4′ wide by 12′ long.
ROTARY LAMINATOR for wall panels – A huge-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 Swing Arm Cutting Machine to exert bonding pressure to laminate two substrates or web materials together. Accepts material approximately 50″ wide (Union Tool laminators can be purchased up to 120″ wide.)
