In this blog post we’d like to focus on a few increasingly popular machines at Manufacturers Supplies Co. These are our IMESA Laminators & Laminating Systems.
IMESA Laminators come with a wealth of options for single, double sided or multi-layer lamination of adhesive products to foams, rubber, cork, adhesive tapes, textiles, graphite, composites and many more.
Our current laminator machines are as follows:
- K1 Easy Laminator-This is an economical, compact, entry level machine that does everything you need it to, and more. Some standard features include: variable operating speeds, and a PLC Touchscreen for operating and an entrance table with adjustable inclination.
- IMESA K1 DS Double Sided Laminator-If you’re in need of something that can apply self-adhesive papers or films to either side of various materials, this is an excellent choice. It sets itself apart from the easy laminator with capabilities for both roll and sheet form. Although it is a step above the Easy laminator, it still remains cost effective.
- KK1 Laminating System-The KK1 laminating system combines adhesive laminating capabilities with in-line slitting and sheeting capabilities. The machine is simple, and standard features include: A powered material unwind with loop sensor, motor, and mechanical brake, an automatic material web guide system with precise edge control, an infra-red preheating station and a variable counter, along with a variety of adjustable in-slitting options including scissor cut (blade & counter-blade), pressure cut (air score) and semi-automatic transversal slitting (guillotine) for creating sheets or sets.
- KK2 Multi-Layer Composite Laminating System-The most advanced of all the systems we carry is the KK2. It has the same features as the KK1, but also lamination abilities to manufacture custom composites from a wide variety of materials. This adhesive based lamination system has benefits for the environment, line speeds, specificity and non-foam materials can be used.
The dedicated page for each machine on our website goes into much further detail about features and specifications. Some machines even contain a video displaying the product and its functionality. We encourage you to visit each page as they may answer your initial questions, and afterwards please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
