Laminate, glue up, lay up, layering… different terms to make 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 in a production line; consequently, most 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 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 next picture shows a Nine (9) Nip Machine that incorporates high pressure nip points at the entry and exit nip points. The high 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 on the exit and entry end of your machine utilizes two (2) 6” diameter air cylinders linked to the top roll to offer the pressure. The middle area of the machine incorporates 4” diameter hold down rolls. The top hold down rolls will also be adjustable in relationship towards the bottom rolls and make use of two 6” diameter air cylinders to improve and reduce the very best hold down roll section. The hold down section allows the melt adhesive to cool off and give 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 created a Multi Nip Roll Machine that is utilized in different industries in laminating door panels and Engineered Flooring. By utilizing several rolls the laminating panel will be underneath the pressure longer and will have various amounts of pressure using different parts of the machine. Pneumatic air cylinders give you the down pressure. Several sets of cylinders provide you with the varying pressures. Rubber and steel rolls are used with all the upper roll adjustable in relationship to 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 type of Union equipment package. This Veneer/Vinyl Laminating System includes a Union Hot Melt Roller Coater, Fabric laminating machine to laminate several different core materials to many different different veneers and vinyl materials.
ENGINEERED FLOORING SYSTEM – A whole material handling and coating system for laminating engineered flooring. This engineered flooring system features 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 become 03dexopky in addition to the coated plywood. These multi-nip roll wood laminating machines are then employed for pressing the two pieces together. Engineered flooring is commonly 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 very best surface with PUR hot-melt adhesive inside 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 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 very large panels.
HOT ROLL LAMINATOR – Union Tool hot roll film laminators speed production line application of protective films to 1 or both sides 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 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 around 50″ wide (Union Tool laminators are available as much as 120″ wide.)
