Laminate, glue up, lay up, layering… different terms for producing sandwiches of core substrate material with facing sheets in 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 in 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 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 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 with the entry and exit nip points. The high pressure nip points use 6.5” diameter rolls using the top rolls adjustable in relationship on the bottom rolls from to 3”. Each nip point on the exit and entry end of the machine utilizes two (2) 6” diameter air cylinders attached to the top roll to provide pressure. The middle section of the machine incorporates 4” diameter hold down rolls. The most notable hold down rolls are also adjustable in relationship on the bottom rolls and use two 6” diameter air cylinders to improve and reduce the most notable hold down roll section. The hold down section allows the melt adhesive to cool down and give 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 created a Multi Nip Roll Machine which is used in various industries in laminating door panels and Engineered Flooring. By making use of some rolls the laminating panel is going to be underneath the pressure longer and will have various levels of pressure using different parts of the equipment. Pneumatic air cylinders supply the down pressure. Several groups of cylinders give you the varying pressures. Rubber and steel rolls are utilized using the upper roll adjustable in relationship to 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) sets of rolls machine.
UNION VENEER/VINYL LAMINATING SYSTEM – Boost productivity and product quality using this Union equipment package. This Veneer/Vinyl Laminating System includes a Union Hot Melt Roller Coater, TPU laminating machine to laminate a number of different core materials to a variety of different veneers and vinyl materials.
ENGINEERED FLOORING SYSTEM – A complete 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 new melt roller coater coats plywood with adhesive as well as the lay-up conveyor allows a bit of veneer to be 03dexopky on top of the coated plywood. These multi-nip roll wood laminating machines are then employed for pressing both the pieces together. Engineered flooring can be used 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 inside a specified area, then pulls the spot-coated artwork right into a hydraulic die-cut and lamination press.
110-inch ROTARY LAMINATOR – An extremely big rotary laminator for wall panels, ceiling panels and floor panels in 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 the Union Tool 110″ Dual Head Hot Melt Roller Coater, this panel laminating machine makes a complete laminating station for substantial panels.
HOT ROLL LAMINATOR – Union Tool hot roll film laminators speed production line use of protective films to one or each side of EPS foam cores. The programmable controller assures tight tolerances both 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 lay 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 are offered around 120″ wide.)
