Hot Melt Laboratory Coater Laminator


Product Overview

  • Rugged construction, capable of withstanding the abuse of the production environment
  • Aluminum frame, hard coat anodized and Teflon coated
  • Precision ground, 303 stainless steel coating bars for highly accurate cross web coating
  • Set the gap quickly with two feeler gauge sets, included with the machine
  • Reservoir capacity up to 125 mL
  • Reservoir is capable of maintaining temperatures up to 400°F (204°C)
  • Coating range capable of producing 25 gsm to 1,500 gsm samples
  • Produce samples of unlimited length from 3" (7 cm) to 12" (30 cm) in width
  • 500-watt heating rods provide heating capacity to the reservoir and two coating bars
  • J-type thermocouple is an integral part of each heating rod
  • Reservoir and coating bar temperatures are accurately maintained by individual digital PID controllers
  • Temperature controllers, heating elements and electronics are housed in a separate steel enclosure
  • Heating elements connect to the control box with individual 36" (1 m) stainless steel armored cables
  • Controllers are capable of maintaining temperatures to a tolerance of +/- 2°F (1°C)
  • Quickly disassembles with a minimum of parts for easy cleaning *Unwind stands are capable of holding roll stock up to 12" (30 cm) diameter by 12" wide (30 cm)
  • Steel base assembly firmly supports the coating head and unwind stand
  • Adjustable Teflon side dams allow for coating control from 1/2" to 12" in width
  • Friction type brake unwinds on both liner and face material
  • Simple pivot mechanism on unwinds allow for basic web alignment
  • Top and bottom laminator rolls are 2" (5 cm) diameter by 24" (61 cm) face width
  • Top and bottom laminator rolls have a steel core and are covered with 80 durometer silicone rubber
  • Bottom laminator roll is driven, top roll idles
  • Requires compressed air - max pressure 90 PSI (6 bar)
  • Air pressure is adjustable for differing levels of laminating pressure
  • Laminating pressure (LP) can be approximated using the following formula: LP = (3.4 x line pressure) / sample width Flow controls are included on both laminator cylinders to allow for smooth, safe operation
  • Safety features include appropriate guarding and an emergency stop switch
  • Length of lamination can be measured
  • Digital controls to control speed, unit of measure and jog functions
  • Variable speed motor allows laminating speeds from 1.0-12.5 fpm (30-375 cm/m)
  • Standard input voltage - 120 VAC (50/60hz)
