Laminate, glue up, lay up, layering… different terms for producing 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 inside a production line; for this reason, many 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 designed a Multi-Nip Rotary Laminator for Engineered Flooring that combines 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 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 from the machine utilizes two (2) 6” diameter air cylinders connected to the top roll to provide the stress. The center section of the machine incorporates 4” diameter hold down rolls. The most notable hold down rolls can also be adjustable in relationship on the bottom rolls and make use of two 6” diameter air cylinders to boost and minimize the top hold down roll section. The hold down section allows the melt adhesive to cool off and give necessary green strength for the upcoming 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 that is used in a variety of industries in laminating door panels and Engineered Flooring. By making use of a number of rolls the laminating panel will be within the pressure longer and may have various quantities of pressure using different sections of the device. Pneumatic air cylinders provide the down pressure. Several sets of cylinders give you the varying pressures. Rubber and steel rolls are utilized together with the upper roll adjustable in relationship towards the lower rolls from to 2″. Union Tool builds this Multi-Nip Roll Machine inside a three (3) set, five (5) set, and ten (10) groups 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 includes a Union Hot Melt Roller Coater, Hot melt 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 includes 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 a piece of veneer to get 03dexopky along with the coated plywood. These multi-nip roll wood laminating machines are then useful for pressing the two pieces together. Engineered flooring is commonly 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 very best surface with PUR hot-melt adhesive inside a 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 inside 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 will make a complete laminating station for very large panels.
HOT ROLL LAMINATOR – Union Tool hot roll film laminators speed production line application of protective films to just one or either side of EPS foam cores. The programmable controller assures tight tolerances for roll temperature and line speed. Processes foam cores around 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 Swing Arm Cutting Machine to exert bonding pressure to laminate two substrates or web materials together. Accepts material approximately 50″ wide (Union Tool laminators are offered as much as 120″ wide.)
