Infrared & Flatbed Laminators
Add speed to your laminating process with infrared preheating. The rapid heating
and cooling of Glenro’s InfraBoost™ preheaters makes them ideal for laminating
- For highly insulative materials such as fibrous materials, foams and other cellular, air trapping materials, infrared preheating puts the heat at the interface where it is required prior to the plies joining at the laminator.
- Infrared preheating can also be used to partially sinter powder adhesives prior to ply introduction.
- Below is an animation of a complete laminating line in which infrared preheating is a significant part of the process. In this production line, prior to entering the laminating machine, a foam substrate is conveyed under a powder coater that applies the adhesive. The coated foam then passes through an infrared preheater which partially sinters the powder adhesive and anchors it to the substrate.
