Profile wrapping vs. laminating
While profile wrapping machines finish the surfaces of wood or PVC profiles with simple to complex geometries, a laminating machine presses decorative material to flat work pieces (boards, flat wide skirtings, ....).
A good laminating line is connected to previous as well as subsequent handling systems and features a flexible laminating zone that works with different kinds of substrates. To make sure you produce high quality results, the surface material has to be pressed across the entire area without any voids or wrinkles. The adhesion has to be strong and longlasting to make sure the final customers will enjoy the products for a long time.

Applications of laminating lines
Typical interior applications are doors for kitchens and cabinets as well as parts of furniture bodies and back boards.
As for exterior applications, panels for outdoor fronts and doors can also be laminated. In this case, an outdoor proof adhesive (PUR) is an essential component of the process. Duespohl has developed reliable, energy efficient solutions to melt all sorts of hot melt glues.
Panels from wood (composites), PVC and metal can be laminated.
Advantages of lamination lines made by Duespohl
One of the major advantages of a lamination line is that we manufacture the entire machine, from the premelter and the glue application system up to the separation unit, in our production site in Germany. Being great experts in profile wrapping, we also offer combined profile wrapping-lamination-lines that enable you to finish the flat surface as well as straight or profiled edges (like J-Pull handles) on one line, in one single pass.

High quality components
The internationally renowned and patented Duespohl SlotCoater applies the hot melt glue. It assures a constant and homogeneous glue application for a strong and long-lasting adhesion as well as low maintenance efforts and high technical availability. The laminating zone is extremely flexible and handles all kinds of substrates from honeycomb doors to solid HDF boards. The diagonal saw from the SynCut series separates finished boards precisely and without any clamping of the laminated boards.

Reducing production costs with laminating lines
Duespohl's laminating lines have been designed to help you manage your energy costs: certain components generate electricity which the machine then reuses for other functions that requiry energy. Especially in times of increasing energy costs, the reduced ongoing expenses are a major advantage.
In terms of ecology, working with hot melt glue is a relevant benefit since it does not contain formaldehyde. Thanks to its composition and application by slot nozzle, it does not require daily cleaning - which is also cost-reducing.
Speaking of which: heating the rollers with electricity instead of oil is cleaner, more energy efficient and process safe.
Wrapped and laminated final products
Profiles such as skirting boards or window frames have been wrapped, wall coverings and kitchen doors are made from wider panels that have been laminated.
