OT Series Flatbed Laminator

OT Series Flatbed Laminator

The OT series flatbed laminator is our highest specification currently, it is the most flexible and offers the highest productivity. Initially designed for applications in the clothing industry, such as interlinings, the machine is ideally suited to the technical textile market, where more specific combinations of pressure, time and temperature can achieve better results for the customers.

The ability to apply direct pressure on the laminator at the end of the process, can make significant changes to the to the finished product in regard to its thickness and is especially useful in medical component production. Pressure also helps the ‘glue medium’ to be more readily absorbed into the products, for a more even and secure finished bond.

Primarily used for the easy bonding or lamination of pieces products, as it is designed to be modular, therefore the OT series flatbed laminator can be equipped with stackers, various feeding stations and return belt device, along with many in-feed, stacking and winding options. The infeed belt allows the products to be manually aligned before bonding, but the option to add multi-roll driven unwind rolls with individual edge guiding, allows rolled products to be perfectly aligned and fed without any tension on a single product which could cause distortion of the finished product.

Where rotary or flatbed bonding may not be appropriate, such as PPE production, we also offer ultrasonic bonding solutions.

The heating area in the OT series is 1400 mm long, to ensure the best and most accurate heating for fusing the materials, using a fusing average speed of 6 m/min. The heating zone configuration is separate for the top and bottom. This allows pre-heating in the first section with top heating plate, to start the melting of adhesive. The longer bottom heating plate allows the products to be bonded by gravity alone, before the pressure system at the end for added pressure. The curved plate heating system is designed to allow smooth fusing without pressure. The ability to apply up to 60N/sq.cm (up to 6Bar) of direct pressure helps the bonding process where necessary.

Different products require different parameters to achieve the correct result, so a combination of heat, time and pressure for one product may not suit a different product. Our broad experience in this field allows us to advise you on the most suitable combinations for treated, woven, non-woven, mono and bi stretch materials.

The Open Top machine is available in the following widths:

700, 1000, 1240, 1400, 1600, 1800. May be available in wider widths, contact us for more details.
