PANEL LAMINATING AND AUTOMATION
Panel laminating is fundamentally about efficiency, and this is at the heart of Evans Midwest’s approach to machinery design for high-pressure laminate (HPL) lines. The Evans range includes robust and versatile machines like the 8100 Panel Feeder to the versatile 0257 Pinch Roller, designed to offer durable and consistent support to laminate lines, enabling operators to focus on crafting parts rather than troubleshooting machinery. Laminating, the process of creating composite materials through layering, enhances the strength, stability, and appearance of the products, and Evans Midwest excels in offering solutions that streamline this process.
The panel lamination process involves the assembly of HPL tops through pressure and adhesives to create laminated sheets. These sheets, often used in countertops or desktop surfaces, subsequently go into the making of finished goods. Evans Midwest ensures that each machine is tailored to fit specific needs, contributing to heightened productivity and quality in the lamination process.
The company provides a complete panel laminating line, which can be customized to fit various applications, from entry-level to fully integrated single-point control systems, catering to operations of any size. It reflects a meticulous combination of engineering and experience aimed at optimizing laminating lines for specific applications.
Bottom line? We help you laminate better, increase productivity, and improve quality.
LAMINATING LINES FOR ANY SIZE OPERATION
The 8100 Precision Feeder and 8300 End Loading Panel Feeder are examples of Evans Midwest’s commitment to quality and reliability. These panel feeding machines, built with cutting-edge technology and heavy-duty components, ensure precise height control and daily reliable production. The design of these machines, whether it’s side load, end load, or units with or without staging conveyors, emphasizes minimal maintenance, eliminating downtime and fostering increased productivity.
Evans Midwest’s panel feeders can handle a wide range of panel sizes and applications, featuring easy-to-use electronic controls for length and width adjustment. These advanced features, including the automatic width adjustment, hold over the wheel, and the spring-loaded fingers, optimize cycle time and ensure the delivery of a quality product.
Our experienced sales and engineering staff can customize a laminating line to fit your specific application. Ranging from entry level to fully integrated single point control systems.
Beyond panel lamination and feeding, Evans Midwest offers machines for panel cleaning and gluing, panel stacking, and roller presses. Panel cleaners like the PC4800 are crucial for removing debris prior to adhesive application. The company’s glue spreaders, laminate racks, layup tables, and roller presses are equipped with advanced features and options that can be customized to meet a variety of adhesive and operational requirements.
High-performance machines like the HGS Hot Melt Spreader apply hot melt adhesive with precision, and layup tables like the LT4280 can be outfitted with features like urethane-coated rollers and powered conveyance to assist in production. The integration of these machines enables maintaining a tight index line and hassle-free handling of completed panels, promoting overall productivity.
