AZCO’s multi-lane laminating system with cut-to-length module enables you to manufacture test strips from raw material. Included is an unwind system, rewind, laminate, print area and cut to length station.
A total of six rolls are in a combination of unwinding and rewinding.
A base material is the carrier which is guided by both fixed and adjustable guides.
Three rolls of material are guided by idler rollers onto the carrier.
A rewinder rewinds the release liner of an adhesive layer.
As the material continues on, it is laminated onto the exposed adhesive layer.
A nip roll station secures the material to the base.
The top idler roller has adjustable preload to provide precision force on the lamination.
An optional printing section is provided.
From the print section, the material advances by the driven rollers.
The material makes a loop which is sensed by an optic loop sensor.
If material is present in the loop, the cut to length station feeds and cuts strips to set length.
