Laminate, glue up, lay up, layering… different terms for creating sandwiches of core substrate material with facing sheets on one or both sides. 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; because of this, lots of the Laminating machine and panelizing machines illustrated below have companion machines inside our Coat and Glue sections. Union Tool panelizers and laminating machines can be purchased in roll widths from 6″ to 120″.
MULTI NIP ROTARY LAMINATOR – Union Tool has designed 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 on the entry and exit nip points. Our prime pressure nip points use 6.5” diameter rolls using the top rolls adjustable in relationship to the bottom rolls from to 3”. Each nip point on the exit and entry end in the machine utilizes two (2) 6” diameter air cylinders linked to the top roll to deliver the stress. 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 raise and reduce the most notable hold down roll section. The hold down section allows the hot melt adhesive to cool off and provide necessary green strength for the next production process. This 9 Nip Rotary Laminator can laminate at accelerates to 100 feet each and every minute.
MULTI NIP ROLL MACHINE – Union Tool has created a Multi Nip Roll Machine that is used in various industries in laminating door panels and Engineered Flooring. Through the use of a number of rolls the laminating panel will be beneath the pressure longer and can have various amounts of pressure using different parts of the device. Pneumatic air cylinders give you the down pressure. Several groups of cylinders provide the varying pressures. Rubber and steel rolls are utilized with the upper roll adjustable in relationship on the lower rolls from to 2″. Union Tool builds this Multi-Nip Roll Machine in 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 particular 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 various different veneers and vinyl materials.
ENGINEERED FLOORING SYSTEM – A complete 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 recent melt roller coater coats plywood with adhesive and the lay-up conveyor allows a sheet of veneer to be 03dexopky along with the coated plywood. These multi-nip roll wood laminating machines are then employed for pressing both the 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 very best surface with PUR hot-melt adhesive in 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 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 constitutes a complete laminating station for huge panels.
HOT ROLL LAMINATOR – Union Tool hot roll film laminators speed production line putting on protective films to a single or either side of EPS foam cores. The programmable controller assures tight tolerances for both roll temperature and line speed. Processes foam cores around 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 Swing Arm Cutting Machine to exert bonding pressure to laminate two substrates or web materials together. Accepts material up to 50″ wide (Union Tool laminators can be found approximately 120″ wide.)
