Polyethylene foam processing equipment for plank production is one of the fastest growing business in packaging industry replacing expanded Polystyrene (EPS). EPE foam planks could be also laminated with Aluminium foil and used in construction industry for insulation purposes.
ALEMO developed a machine with hot-air lamination technology to achieve maximum productivity at lowest scrap ratio. The result is a machine laminating and processing up to seven sheet rolls in one step at speeds up to 20m/min. It can laminate input PE foam sheet rolls from 6 to 25 mm thickness and up to 2000mm width. The machine's design is adapted to perform plank-to-plank lamination as well!
Moreover, this EPE laminating machine is equipped with an automatic side-trim and scrap collection system. And with scrap ready for further recycling process.
Max. number of layers: 6
Max. plank thickness: 120 mm
Max. plank width: 2000 mm
Max. operational speed: up to 40 m/min
