The most recent addition to Cellpack lamination equipment is a BOBST SL 1000 duplex laminator which was commissioned in September 2012 at the production site of Cellpack Lauterecken GmbH in Germany to replace a 20-year old machine and to increase the facility's solventless lamination capacity.
BOBST laminators in the SL 1000 platform range are dedicated to solventless applications and benefit for the accuracy and consistency of the solventless coating system on the one hand and the performance of the web handling system on the other.
The materials' web tension can be maintained at very low tolerances for a wide spectrum of flexible substrates with different physical properties and varying thicknesses which enables production of consistently high quality laminated structures.
"The web handling capabilities of the SL 1000 enable to run a broader range of substrates at high production speed, up to 450 m/min depending on the web combination and process conditions" commented Rainer Hellwig, Plant Manager at Cellpack Lauterecken "And the quality of the finished product we deliver to our clients is excellent" he added.
The user-friendliness of the machine is another point of satisfaction for Cellpack as fastest job setups and changeovers have brought about major improvements in turnaround times, whilst reducing waste at the same time.
"The SL 1000 laminator has been providing excellent performance and level of productivity. The technical solutions it features optimize the profitability of our investment", concluded Rainer Hellwig.
