Muller Martini Offers Inline Laminating and Efficient Waste Removal Stations
Headquartered in Hauppauge, N.Y., Muller Martini’s newly developed inline laminating and matrix waste removal stations for self-adhesive labels make its Alprinta-V web offset press even more versatile.
During production, a UV-curable laminating glue is applied via the flexo unit to the substrate. Then, in the laminating station, a film is dispensed onto the web that runs through a UV lamp where the glue is cured.
Muller Martini’s new Alprinta-V laminating station is ideal for:
• Unwind units for rolls with diameters of up to 311⁄2"
• Machine speeds of up to 1,200 fpm, depending on substrates
• Film widths up to 291⁄8" with Alprinta 74, and 201⁄2" with the Alprinta 52
• Adjustable web tensions for optimum flatness of finished products
In addition, the new system utilizes a draw roller and doctor blade. Punching depth is set on the Alprinta-V in an extremely precise manner with the help of conical-shaped bearers, allowing simple readjustment even while running production.
Advantages of the new waste removal station include high production speeds, nonstop matrix waste removal, adjustable matrix removal via a tension roller system and high operational safety with simple handling.
