Laminate, glue up, lay up, layering… different terms to make 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 inside a production line; for that reason, a lot 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 found 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 with the entry and exit nip points. Our prime pressure nip points use 6.5” diameter rolls using the top rolls adjustable in relationship for the bottom rolls from to 3”. Each nip point at the exit and entry end from the machine utilizes two (2) 6” diameter air cylinders coupled to the top roll to deliver pressure. The middle part of the machine incorporates 4” diameter hold down rolls. The best hold down rolls will also be adjustable in relationship for the bottom rolls and utilize two 6” diameter air cylinders to boost and lower the best hold down roll section. The hold down section allows the recent melt adhesive to cool off and offer necessary green strength for the next 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 that is used in a variety of industries in laminating door panels and Engineered Flooring. By making use of some rolls the laminating panel will be beneath the pressure longer and might have various numbers of pressure using different parts of the device. Pneumatic air cylinders provide you with the down pressure. Several sets of cylinders supply the varying pressures. Rubber and steel rolls are employed together with the upper roll adjustable in relationship for 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 contains a Union Hot Melt Roller Coater, Hot melt laminating machine to laminate several different core materials to various different veneers and vinyl materials.
ENGINEERED FLOORING SYSTEM – A complete material handling and coating system for laminating engineered flooring. This engineered flooring system contains a hot melt roller coater, lay-up conveyor and multi-nip roll machine. The new melt roller coater coats plywood with adhesive along with the lay-up conveyor allows a bit of veneer to be 03dexopky along with the coated plywood. These multi-nip roll wood laminating machines are then useful for pressing both pieces together. Engineered flooring can be used as an alternative 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 within a specified area, then pulls the spot-coated artwork right into a hydraulic die-cut and lamination press.
110-inch ROTARY LAMINATOR – An incredibly 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 the Union Tool 110″ Dual Head Hot Melt Roller Coater, this panel laminating machine creates a complete laminating station for substantial panels.
HOT ROLL LAMINATOR – Union Tool hot roll film laminators speed production line application of protective films to just one or both sides of EPS foam cores. The programmable controller assures tight tolerances both for roll temperature and line speed. Processes foam cores approximately 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 Travel Head Cutting Machine to exert bonding pressure to laminate two substrates or web materials together. Accepts material up to 50″ wide (Union Tool laminators are offered approximately 120″ wide.)
