General Info

Foliant 520HPS
Semi-Automatic Laminator with Separator

The Foliant  520HPS is a simple semi-automatic laminating machine with a laminator and separator designed with an operating width of maximum sheet size is 20.4″ x 29.1″ (52 x 74 cm) and a minimum sheet size of 8-1/2″ x 11″ (30 x 25 cm / A4). It represents an ideal choice for a professional in-house single side lamination in small offset and digital print shops. The maximum speed is up to 36’/ minute (11 meters/min).

Fully equiped with an adjustable decurl bar, the design provides easy operation in a machine that uses limited floor space. A modular stand is supplied optionally. The roll of a film is mounted on an easy handle shaft with a film tension control breaker. The shaft capacity is up to 10,000′ (3000 m) of the 1.2 mil (31 microns) film. The film holder unit is equipped with a trim slitter and a perforating wheel.

The laminating process is done between two laminating rollers, an upper heated silicone roller, and a lower hard rubber pressure roller. The laminating roller is heated with an infra-red heating spiral, with a sensitive contact temperature sensor. The pressure is mechanically adjustable to achieve the pressure between the laminating rollers and the laminating unit is equipped with an adjustable decurl bar.

The belt separator (sheeter) is equipped with a separating roller and a deflection wheel. The separated sheets are delivered into an optional reception unit or a vibrating jogger. The Foliant 520TS is a semi-automatic machine. The feeding is easily handled manually with a synchronized feeding conveyor and an adjustable side guider. The machine laminates OPP films 1 mil to 1.7 mil (23 – 42 microns).
