FOLIANT Vega 400A Datasheet (PDF)

The FOLIANT Vega 400A is a new generation of easy available very compact industrial laminating machines, designed for a heavy duty digital outputs lamination, with an integrated deep pile vacuum feeder and a high speed bump separator, with non-sticky pressure roller and in-run adjustable twin decurl bar and overlap system. Due to its pneumatic high pressure system (with integrated compressor inside machine frame), 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 B3+ lamination too. The machine maximum speed is up to 18 m/min., while performance is over 2000 sheets per hour of B3 portrait (white paper 200 gsm).

Feeder

The FOLIANT Vega 400A is equipped with a rising pile front separation stream feeder and with a vacuum belt head. The built-in Becker vacuum pump is used for sheets front airing and feeding head vacuum. The overlaps are controlled, in an „in-run“mode. The accuracy is +/- 2 mm under-lap (in a constant speed). The feeder is fitted with a lifting plate and its capacity is a 28 cm pile of paper.

Laminator

The FOLIANT Vega 400A laminator maximum sheet size is 38 x 66 cm (which is the maximum outputs format from Xerox iGen4). The minimum sheet size is 20 x 30 cm.The FOLIANT Vega 400A machine is a single sided thermal industrial laminator, laminating the 115 – 500 gsm paper. The machine does not need any external source of pressured air for the pneumatic pressure system, because the compressor is integrated inside the machine frame as a standard delivery.


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 scratches on sheets printed on both sides by digital print with sensitive inks).

The roll of a film is mounted on a quick-changed shaft with a film tension control breaker. The shaft capacity is up to 3000 m of the 24 - 42 microns film. The film holder unit is equipped with an in-line trim slitter and a perforating wheel. The laminating process is made between two laminating rollers - a highly polished chrome roller, and a lower hard rubber pressure roller with non-sticky surface. The pressure is pneumatically adjustable. The laminating roller is heated with a dry electric system inside the roller, with a sensitive temperature sensor. The warming up time is shorter than 10 minutes. The whole machine is control with an interactive, easy understandable icon based touch screen and its used control system includes many automation items for an easy control of the machine and a reliable lamination.

Separator

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

Laminating Films

The machine laminates the BOPP films (24 – 42 microns). Nylon films (24 - 35 microns) can be laminated with optional Pneumatic separation only.
