RICHMOND, VA— Nordmeccanica’s, Piancenza, Italy, technology is behind the Duplex Combi Horizontal 1700 laminator, the machine supporting the start-up of a new laminator production line by DuPont and Von Roll Isola USA to support DuPont™ Nomex® Laminate Systems. The laminator will help meet demand for Nomex Laminates—the DuPont-engineered insulation materials.
The Nordmeccanica technology behind the Duplex Combi Horizontal 1700 laminator reportedly enables it produce at a rate three times faster than previous models. The laminator can create laminates up to 65 inches wide, nearly 70% wider than previously possible, company says. According to Nordmeccanica, the laminator is a safer, more environmentally-friendly piece of equipment. The machine has a PTE (permanent total enclosure) that is said to capture any solvent vapors and exhaust them away from the manufacturing area where they are then rendered harmless.
