Laminate, glue up, lay up, layering… different terms for making sandwiches of core substrate material with facing sheets in one or each 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; consequently, most of the Laminating machine and panelizing machines illustrated below have companion machines inside our Coat and Glue sections. Union Tool panelizers and laminating machines are available 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.
The 2nd picture shows a Nine (9) Nip Machine that incorporates high pressure nip points on the entry and exit nip points. The top 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 at the exit and entry end from the machine utilizes two (2) 6” diameter air cylinders coupled to the top roll to supply the pressure. The center area of the machine incorporates 4” diameter hold down rolls. The top hold down rolls may also be adjustable in relationship towards the bottom rolls and make use of two 6” diameter air cylinders to boost and minimize the best hold down roll section. The hold down section allows the recent melt adhesive to cool down and provide necessary green strength for the following production process. This 9 Nip Rotary Laminator can laminate at speeds up to 100 feet each minute.
MULTI NIP ROLL MACHINE – Union Tool has designed a Multi Nip Roll Machine that is used in different industries in laminating door panels and Engineered Flooring. By utilizing some rolls the laminating panel will be underneath the pressure longer and may have various levels of pressure using different parts of the appliance. Pneumatic air cylinders give you the down pressure. Several sets of cylinders provide you with the varying pressures. Rubber and steel rolls are utilized with all the upper roll adjustable in relationship for the lower rolls from to 2″. Union Tool builds this Multi-Nip Roll Machine in the 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 Union equipment package. This Veneer/Vinyl Laminating System includes a Union Hot Melt Roller Coater, Hot met pur laminating machine to laminate a number of core materials to a variety of different veneers and vinyl materials.
ENGINEERED FLOORING SYSTEM – A total 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 hot melt roller coater coats plywood with adhesive along with the lay-up conveyor allows a sheet of veneer to become 03dexopky in addition to the coated plywood. These multi-nip roll wood laminating machines are then utilized for pressing the 2 pieces together. Engineered flooring is commonly 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 in a hydraulic die-cut and lamination press.
110-inch ROTARY LAMINATOR – A really 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 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 application of protective films to 1 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 – 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 Cutting press to exert bonding pressure to laminate two substrates or web materials together. Accepts material as much as 50″ wide (Union Tool laminators are offered around 120″ wide.)
