Laminate, glue up, lay up, layering… different terms for making sandwiches of core substrate material with facing sheets on a single 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 in a production line; consequently, many 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 bought 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 with the exit and entry end in the machine utilizes two (2) 6” diameter air cylinders attached to the top roll to provide pressure. The middle area of the machine incorporates 4” diameter hold down rolls. The best hold down rolls can also be adjustable in relationship on the bottom rolls and utilize two 6” diameter air cylinders to increase and minimize the very best hold down roll section. The hold down section allows the melt adhesive to cool off and provide necessary green strength for the following production process. This 9 Nip Rotary Laminator can laminate at accelerates to 100 feet each minute.
MULTI NIP ROLL MACHINE – Union Tool has designed a Multi Nip Roll Machine which is used in several industries in laminating door panels and Engineered Flooring. Through the 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 you with the down pressure. Several sets of cylinders provide you with the varying pressures. Rubber and steel rolls are being used with the upper roll adjustable in relationship on the lower rolls from to 2″. Union Tool builds this Multi-Nip Roll Machine within 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 Union equipment package. This Veneer/Vinyl Laminating System includes a Union Hot Melt Roller Coater, Hot met pur laminating machine to laminate several different core materials to many different different veneers and vinyl materials.
ENGINEERED FLOORING SYSTEM – A total material handling and coating system for laminating engineered flooring. This engineered flooring system features a hot melt roller coater, lay-up conveyor and multi-nip roll machine. The recent melt roller coater coats plywood with adhesive as well as the lay-up conveyor allows some veneer to get 03dexopky in addition to the coated plywood. These multi-nip roll wood laminating machines are then useful for pressing both pieces together. Engineered flooring is utilized as an option to 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 the specified area, then pulls the spot-coated artwork in to a hydraulic die-cut and lamination press.
110-inch ROTARY LAMINATOR – A very 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 makes a complete laminating station for large panels.
HOT ROLL LAMINATOR – Union Tool hot roll film laminators speed production line implementation of protective films to a single or both sides of EPS foam cores. The programmable controller assures tight tolerances for roll temperature and line speed. Processes foam cores approximately 4′ wide by 12′ long.
ROTARY LAMINATOR for wall panels – A heavy-duty rotary laminator to laminate panels to wall stuctures or frames to lay 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 up to 50″ wide (Union Tool laminators can be found as much as 120″ wide.)
