FOLIANT Mercury 400 NG 4×4 double

The FOLIANT Mercury 400 NG 4x4 double is next generation of double sided laminating machine offering very high performance. It is very compact and fast industrial laminating machine, constructed for non-stop work. It is equipped with Foliant suction feeder, high speed bump separator and many options like non-sticky rollers, pallet stacker or Foiler.  Due to its format and performance the machine is suitable for all jobs – all kinds of digital printed sheets lamination and high volumes of offset printed sheets size B2+ lamination too. The machine maximum speed is up to 27 m/min single sided and double sided as well, while performance is up to 3240 sheets per hour of B3 portrait (white paper 200 gsm).

Feeder

The FOLIANT Mercury 400 NG 4x4 is equipped with a rising pile back separation stream feeder and with Foliant suction feed head. It is driven by an Omron servo motor and controlled by a machine central PLC. The Becker vacuum pump is used for sheets back airing. The overlaps are electronically controlled, in an „in-run“ automatic mode, from the touch screen. The accuracy is +/- 2 mm under-lap (in a constant speed). The standard feeder is fitted with a lifting plate and its capacity is a 54 cm pile of paper.

Laminator

The FOLIANT Mercury 400 NG 4x4 laminator maximum sheet size is 40 x 70 cm, extendable to 100 cm with optional XL module. The minimum sheet size is 32 x 25 cm (A4).The FOLIANT Mercury 400 NG 4x4 machine is double sided thermal industrial laminator, laminating the 115 – 600 gsm paper, with an unique „U“ cross bar for perfect lamination of thin sensitive sheets. The laminating unit is equipped with an adjustable twin decurl unit:

  • With a decurl blade for offset printed sheets decurling
  • With a decurl roller for digital printed sheets decurling (to prevent the scratches on sheets printed on both sides by digital print with sensitive inks).

Rolls of a film are mounted on a quick-changed shafts with a film tension control breaker. Each shaft capacity is up to 3000 m of the 24 - 42 microns film. Both film holders are equipped with a trim slitter and a perforating wheel. The laminating process is made between two pairs of laminating rollers - a highly polished chrome roller on top, and a hard rubber pressure roller on bottom. The position of the rollers for 2nd side is switched. The lamination of each side is thus equal.  Both chrome rollers are heated with a dry electric system. The warming up time is shorter than 10 minutes. The pressure is pneumatically adjustable, with an extra independent control knob for each pressure roller edge.

The machine is fitted with OMRON Programmable Logic Controllers, which control all machines’ functions. The used PLC system includes many automation items for an easy control of the machine and a reliable lamination. The whole machine is controlled by an interactive easy understandable icon touch screen panel – no language version is needed.

Separator

The integrated bump separator (sheeter) is equipped with a pair of fast cycling rollers. The process is controlled from the machine PLC unit. The separated sheets are delivered into a vibrating jogger (optional) or a pallet stacker (optional).

Laminating Films

The machine laminates the BOPP films (23 – 42 microns), nylon films (24 - 35 microns, signle side only) and PET films (20 - 26 microns single, 20 - 22 microns double).

Safety Measurements

FOLIANT Mercury 400NG 4x4 double is certified by independent testing laboratory DGUV Test and obtained GS mark ("Tested Safety"). The measurements for operators safety are better then required by law in order to minimize injuries.
