LA330 Solar Laminator

Solar cell life cycle is critical. To protect the open cells better an encapulation must be used. GM offers a range of laminators with support for self-adhesive lamination, UV lamination and hot lamination


The LA330 is a multi-purpose machine.

It can function as a cold laminator, inspection unit or a slitter rewinder depending on the configuration. The unit can work offline as a separate machine or inline with a dancer arm. In inline mode, it is typically connected to a digital press.

It features a special coated laminating nip that ensures curl/wrinkle-free lamination. This important both for standard web applications like self-adhesive labels and for speciality products like OPV solar cells.

The machine has an easy to use touch panel and features step-less electronic tension on both unwind and rewind spindles. A web guide with an ultrasonic sensor is fitted as standard. The web guide has a build-in splice table with two air controlled clamps. There are many possible options to the machine; rotary knife box, razor blade system, inkjet head etc.

The rewinder is equipped with air expansion mandrels with sleeves easily exchangeable to other sizes. The rewinder can be set at rewinding label-in or label-out, and many functions are set by the touch display.
