Custom Laminator and Cut-to-Length System

June 6, 2020
AZCO Corp.'s laminator unwinds, laminates, and cuts the finished product.

AZCO Corp. has designed and manufactured a custom laminator to unwind four different materials from rolls, laminate them together, and then cut the finished product to a specified length.


The rolls of material which include PET film, aluminum-coated PET with adhesive, and release liners, are loaded onto four separate cantilever design brake unwinds. A roll feeder pulls the materials off the unwinds and laminates them together. The product then travels through a dancer accumulator and is advanced by precision ground urethane drive rollers where an internal guide directs it from the drive rollers into the knife assembly. A registration eye sees a mark that signals where to cut the product. The modular designed knife assembly is pneumatically operated, requiring 2.75 to 3 Bar (40 to 60 psi) of regulated air pressure. An operator control panel is provided which includes an HMI color touch screen for easy setup and operation of the unit. All units are attached to an aluminum equipment table.
