The laminators in the SL 1000 platform range are dedicated to solventless applications and feature a fixed coating head configuration. The solventless system is very accurate and the special manufacturing process of the metering rollers enable a very low fault rate, including bushing and bearing errors, cylinder concentrically and thermal expansion. The metering rollers are interchangeable so that in case of surface damage the damaged roller can be changed with the roller which is not rotating during production, thereby minimizing production downtime.
Accuracy of tension control is of paramount importance to produce high quality laminates with minimum material waste, especially when the machine can handle a wide range of flexible substrates with different physical properties and varying thicknesses. This includes the ability to process and coat the adhesive directly on thin aluminum foil.
The laminator is controlled by the Cosmoline PRO, a fully integrated operator-machine interface system. This includes the control and storage of all machine parameters in recipes, as well as management of the treaters, heating unit, alarms and data loggers.
The automatic shafted or shaftless duplex winders enable to carry out a fully automatic bi-directional reel splice at maximum machine speed. Reel diameter 1'000 or 1'300 mm. The efficient technical solutions that optimize the use and recovery of electrical power enable an important reduction in the level of energy consumption.
