With lamination, one of the principal areas you need to look at is gap control. For particular applications, you must be able to station the facet of your nip rolls in adjacent nearness to each other. The issue is they can’t touch. Wet bond lamination is a good example. Here, nipping the pair of rolls together can thrust the coating between the web layers. Alternatively, it could go into the porous web.
Gap management

During such cases, the standard action would be to find a variable gap management contraption. The device could be a gear-based assembly between the rolls’ bearing housings, or a taper wedge. Once the rolls’ cylinders enlarge, the housings encounter the gap-directing machine.

Calibration of the gap control apparatus should change the gap in the middle of the rolls. A single input should be all that is necessary. Otherwise, fine-tuning may be possible independently. Another common occurrence is that the adjusters can allow the rolls to meet one another when completely retracted. This permits you to utilise the nip in a pressure mode sort of fashion.

At Foiling Services, we begin every project by assessing the properties of the item in need of lamination. This way, we can determine whether the process will cause it some harm. If we just applied the procedure there and then, we’d simply be putting your belongings in jeopardy. That is precisely what we don’t want and ensures our lamination services are highly rated.
