Thermofix® TFE - electrical heated

Flatbed Laminator is a combination of contact heat and pressure

The functional principle of Schott & Meissner's flatbed laminator Thermofix® is a combination of contact heat and pressure. The product to be processed is passed through the flatbed laminator or double belt press between two teflon-coated conveyor belts and heated by means of heating plates that are positioned behind the conveyor belts. 
The product, still held between the two conveyor belts, is then passed through one or multiple pairs of nip rolls, arranged inline one after the other and calibrated. After the heating zone, the double belt press has a cooling area. Here, the product is "thermoset" by means of cooling plates, which are also positioned right behind the conveyor belts.

The main difference between our two available machine types lies mainly in the heating method (electric vs. thermal oil), the design itself (modula vs. standard) as well as the final applications.

Our double belt press TFO is designed for high pressures and highest accuracies, whereas our flat bed laminating machine TFE is used for simple lamination processes.

The Thermofix® TFE is available in three different sizes and two versions, which differ in the installed capacity.
