Application: a 70mm film on a spool which needed to have a UV adhesive placed onto it; laminate a thicker plastic top piece; go through a set of nip rollers; and then cut the lamination to a registered mark to length.
- A cantilever bench top unit where the spool went on an unwind and underneath a dancer assembly.
- The position of the dancer assembly either sped up or slowed down the spool on the unwind.
- From the dancer, the film went over a set of idler rollers and into a glue station.
- After the material had glue on it, a top lexan plastic was placed onto the bottom substrate.
- The laminated material went through 2 sets of driven nip rollers which secured the lamination.
- From the nip rollers, a UV drying station cured the ink, an optic registration system tracked the location where the lamination needed to be cut, and the cut to length unit cut at the proper registration points of the lamination.
- The unit had a color touch screen for easy operator interface and was powered by 110 V AC.
- An air supply was required.
