The Laminator – Foliant Castor 530SF is a high-speed compact industrial laminating machine, constructed for heavy duty, with a suction feeder and a high-speed bump separator, walk-in service section and an optional pallet feeder, a pallet stacker and a film loader. The Castor 530SF is the most powerful machine in the B2 range – equipped with suction feeder this machine reaches working speeds of 50 m/min.
The machine is equipped with a rising pile back separation stream feeder with a suction feed head. It is driven by an Omron servo motor and controlled by a machine central PLC. The built-in Becker vacuum pump is used for sheets back airing and feeding head suction cups vacuum. The overlaps are electronically controlled from the touch screen. The accuracy is +/- 2 mm under-lap (at a constant speed). The standard feeder is fitted with a lifting plate and its capacity is a 55 cm pile of paper.
The 530SF’s laminator’s maximum sheet size is 53 x 75 cm. The minimum sheet size is 30 x 25 cm (A4). The machine is a single sided thermal industrial laminator, laminating the paper 115 – 600 gsm, with an unique “U“ cross bar for thin sheets flat and safety high pressure lamination, mounted in the front of the main laminating rollers, with an “In run“ adjustable de-curl bar.
The machine is fitted with OMRON Programmable Logic Controllers, which control all machines’ functions. Used PLC system includes many automation items for the machine easy control and reliable lamination. The whole machine is controlled by an interactive easy understandable icon based touch screen – no language mutation is needed.
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).
The machine requires an external compressor /6-8 bar, 150 l / min) as a source of the pressured air for its pneumatic system.
