Lateral Flow Lamination Equipment

LM9000™ Continuous Laminator


The LM9000 Continuous Laminating System provides continuous lamination of materials onto a plastic support backing with adhesive. Typical applications would be lamination of rapid diagnostic test strips or urine dip sticks.

The LM9000 Continuous Laminating System’s modular design accommodates various numbers and types of materials. Each material is fed from adjustable spindles through guides and under a pressure capstan roller to assure complete adhesion to the plastic support backing. The system provides the ability to individually remove kiss cut adhesive liners for individual laminate materials.

For fragile materials like nitrocellulose, alignment is controlled through automated tracking. After lamination, the materials can either be cut and stacked in a collection chute or rewound onto a take-up reel. Other process steps such as dispensing, slitting, punching and inspection can also be integrated into the system.

For materials that are not available or cannot be processed in roll formats, a magazine feeding system for feeding the plastic support backing and more fragile materials is available. The system can also be enclosed for controlling the manufacturing environment.
