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 inside a production line; for that reason, many of the Laminating machine and panelizing machines illustrated below have companion machines in 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 at the entry and exit nip points. The top pressure nip points use 6.5” diameter rolls with the top rolls adjustable in relationship to the bottom rolls from to 3”. Each nip point with the exit and entry end of your machine utilizes two (2) 6” diameter air cylinders linked to the top roll to provide the pressure. The middle portion of the machine incorporates 4” diameter hold down rolls. The best hold down rolls can also be adjustable in relationship towards the bottom rolls and use two 6” diameter air cylinders to boost and minimize the top hold down roll section. The hold down section allows the new melt adhesive to cool off and provide necessary green strength for the next production process. This 9 Nip Rotary Laminator can laminate at speeds up to 100 feet per minute.
MULTI NIP ROLL MACHINE – Union Tool has designed a Multi Nip Roll Machine that is utilized in several industries in laminating door panels and Engineered Flooring. Through the use of several rolls the laminating panel is going to be within the pressure longer and will have various amounts of pressure using different parts of the appliance. Pneumatic air cylinders provide you with the down pressure. Several groups of cylinders supply the varying pressures. Rubber and steel rolls are being used together with the upper roll adjustable in relationship on 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) sets of rolls machine.
UNION VENEER/VINYL LAMINATING SYSTEM – Boost productivity and product quality with this Union equipment package. This Veneer/Vinyl Laminating System posesses a Union Hot Melt Roller Coater, Hot melt laminating machine to laminate many different core materials to many different different veneers and vinyl materials.
ENGINEERED FLOORING SYSTEM – An entire 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 some veneer to get 03dexopky on top of the coated plywood. These multi-nip roll wood laminating machines are then useful for pressing the two pieces together. Engineered flooring is 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 best surface with PUR hot-melt adhesive within a specified area, then pulls the spot-coated artwork 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 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 use of protective films to 1 or each side of EPS foam cores. The programmable controller assures tight tolerances for both roll temperature and line speed. Processes foam cores up to 4′ wide by 12′ long.
ROTARY LAMINATOR for wall panels – 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 approximately 120″ wide.)
