1. Introduction

For the processing of real leather, artificial leather, textiles and molded skins offers 3CON press laminating, groove laminating and the new by 3CON developed Exact Shape Laminating (ESL).

2. Machine Concepts

3CON Press Laminating machines based on the proven multi-tool presses (MTP), which are characterized by a compact design.

Through a servo motor drive, 4 gear racks provide the highest possible stability of the upper table is reached.

A new infrared heating concept enables activation of adhesives in less than 20 s with lower energy consumption.

Self-developed 3CON infrared controller to regulate the heat output over time.

Inputs and out feed shuttle:

To optimize the cycle time, the 3CON- laminating machines are equipped with optional servo driven shuttle systems. As a result, the decorative cuts and the support parts can be automatically feeding. The finished laminated parts will now be further promoted to the next step or to the Packers.

3. Tool Concepts

3CON Press Laminating Tools are made of aluminum with precision plates, since they must not take any load-bearing function in the MTPs. The capacity is given by the press table. As a result, the tools are easy and flexible to design.

Different designs in the same tool can be done by servo decor grippers. Variations of the decorative quality or changes in the adhesive system can be quickly compensated.

All necessary for the process components such as valves, input / output modules or IR piggyback heating are located on the tool. This enables a flexible tool design with neutral interface.
