Foliant Gemini C400 Laminator
Manual High Pressure Laminating Machine

The Foliant Gemini C 400 is a manual high pressure laminating machine developed for a digital printing machines outputs lamination. The machine is equipped with a pneumatic system of laminating rollers pressure with an easy thrust control. A small compressor is integrated inside the machine frame. The machine has been designed with an operating width of 14.9″ (380 mm) and it represents an ideal choice for professional single side lamination in digital shops and all other printing shops.

Featuring a maximum speed up to 49’/minute (15 meters/min), the machine’s main feature is the pneumatic pressure system in a heavy duty mechanism enabling to achieve a very high working pressure. A small integrated compressor inside the machine frame means no external source of pressured air is required. Supplied with a modular stand covered with a nicely designed side panels as a standard accessory, the machine requires a minimum floor space of 30″ x 46″ (74 x 117 cm).

The Foliant Gemini C 400 laminator handles a maximum sheet size of 14.9″ x 25.9″ (38 x 66 cm). The minimum sheet size is 8-1/2 x 11 letter size (30 x 25 cm A4). 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 1.2 mil film. The film holder unit is equipped with a trim slitter and a perforating wheel.

The laminating process is done between two laminating rollers – a highly polished chrome 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 pneumatically adjustable to achieve an extra high pressure between the laminating rollers.

The laminating unit is equipped with an adjustable twin decurl unit:

  • A decurl blade for offset printed sheets decurling
  • A decurl roller for digital printed sheets decurling, to prevent scratches on sheets printed on both sides by digital print with sensitive inks.

The Foliant Gemini C 400 is a manual feeding unit, it is equipped with a synchronized feeding conveyor and an adjustable side guider for an easy loading. Sheet separation is also a manual process. However, due to the perforation of film, done in the process of laminating, the whole process is easy.
Additionally, the machine can be upgraded with an automatic separator at a later time. The belt separator (sheeter) is equipped with a separating roller and a deflection wheel. The separated sheets are delivered into a reception unit or a vibrating jogger (options). More information is available at Foliant Gemini C 400S.

The machine laminates the OPP films 1 – 1.7 mil (23-42 microns) and Nylon films max. 1.3mil (35 microns).

An optional film supply roll shaft is available for quicker film replacement.
