SOMA Engineering has developed the LAMIFLEX E solvent free laminator. This new laminator is a new version of the company’s original LAMIFLEX S. The new E machine uses a two-stand concept. Its footprint has been shortened to free up floor space in the factory. The company says LAMIFLEX E utilizes a solvent free adhesive using a two part polyurethane glue which sets via chemical reaction avoiding solvent emission that also eliminates the need for a heated drying tunnel. The new product can process a range of substrates including BOPP, PET, PE, LD PE, OPA, CAST PP, AL foil, and paper. The drives for the unwind, machine rollers and rewind are all AC servo motors for accuracy and control.
