The Vertical laminator packs a large number of features into a compact footprint: Precise control of process speed and temperature combined with tight tolerance rollers provide utmost lamination quality.

The modular design allows customization to your specific applications. All options can be field installed, providing flexibility in the initial specifications. The base is designed to provide lift cart access for ergonomic loading of heavy rolls and the rollers are cantilevered for easy threading.

The unwind/rewind pair are PLC controlled with a touch screen user interface. Contact us today to learn more.
