Laminating Lines and Glue Application Machines

Modular Design – Top in Performance

Laminating Lines and Glue Application Machines: Modular Design – Top Performance

Hymmen laminating and glueing lines have enjoyed global renown in the board and furniture industry for decades. They have won praise for their innovation, quality and performance when it comes to protecting materials, decor application and the addition of favourable material characteristics. Worldwide, some 200 Hymmen laminating lines are currently in operation in a range of versions that cover a huge spectrum of technical options.

Laminating and Glue Application Lines

  • CTK

  • KSA with rubber calander for special foils

  • KSA with slotted nozzle

  • UMA glue application machine

Your Advantages at a Glance

  • Outstanding surface quality

  • High lamination repeat accuracy thanks to special camera and control systems using register marks

  • Rapid foil change

  • Automatic foil splicing during foil roll change

  • Minimum foil wastage thanks to high-precision gap control and the highly dynamic cutting system for board separation

  • Final edge-trimming using an x-ray sensor for board recognition

  • Integration of automatic single-sheet feeder

  • Cost-saving option: use of urea-resin-based adhesive

  • Seamless integration of laminating lines in your production processes

  • Single-source solution
