Main key steps of the project

  • NDA (Non-disclosure Agreement) between the client and ILAMCO to ensure confidentiality of the exchanged information.
  • Customized solution definition according to specific customer requirements in terms of line flexibility (materials and applications).
  • Detailed design of the line.
  • Engineering Project validation.
  • Production process with periodical meetings with the client in order to follow up the construction process, discuss any technical issues and validate a perfect alignment of the Project with the client’s objectives.
  • Assembly and commissioning.
  • FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) in ILAMCO facilities.
  • Disassembly and expedition.
  • Assembly, start up and SAT (Site Acceptance Test) in client’s facilities.
  • Production Ramp-up follow-up & Operational practices improvement.
  • Sustainable long-lasting partner relationship in order to ensure the good fulfilment of the objectives of the Project.

Technological solution scope

Multi-process coating, printing and laminating line composed by the following elements:

  • 3 Automatic NON-STOP turret type unwinders.
  • 6 central drum servo positioned flexo printing units.
  • Roll to roll coating head for solvent base high viscosity adhesive application.
  • “Direct gravure” and “Kiss coating” + “mayer bar” application coating head for low viscosity solvent base adhesive.
  • Drying section with driven rolls arched (6 modules x3 mtrs) powered by natural gas direct burner.
  • Cooling system by chill rolls calenders.
  • Cleaning and web treatment equipment.
  • 2 Laminating units with controlled gap-pressure system.
  • 2 Automatic NON-STOP turret type rewinders.

Key Technology Achievements

  • Non-stop production line thanks to automatic unwinds and rewinds.
  • Coating heads and laminating systems to produce multiple laminates structures.
  • Multi-process line to produce laminates products in one step process.
  • High quality web tension control to run low density (soft) raw materials in a multiple steps process with a large web path.

Business added value

  • High flexibility of the line to produce a high variety of final products for different applications.
  • High added value laminates production with an optimized production cost thanks to one step process layout.
