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 inset 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 with the top rolls adjustable in relationship to the bottom rolls from 0 to 3”. Each nip point at the exit and entry end of the machine utilizes two (2) 6” diameter air cylinders attached to the top roll to provide the pressure. The middle section of the machine incorporates 4” diameter hold down rolls. The top hold down rolls are also adjustable in relationship to the bottom rolls and use two 6” diameter air cylinders to raise and lower the top hold down roll section. The hold down section allows the hot melt adhesive to cool down and provide necessary green strength for the next production process. This 9 Nip Rotary Laminator can laminate at speeds up to 100 feet per minute.
