Maan Engineering presents HYBRID Lamination Coating Line in America
From 25 through 27 September, Labelexpo Americas 2018 takes place in Chicago. A great opportunity for all visitors to get to know the new HYBRID technology of Maan Engineering: the Lamination Coating Line. This is a coating line that can produce both laminate and linerless labels. A major breakthrough in the label industry. And Maan wouldn't be Maan if it didn't present its new machinery line in an innovative way. On stand 1804, Maan will give every visitor a virtual tour. Using VR goggles, every interested party can experience the wide range of capabilities of Maan's new line.
Laminate and linerless
The latest Maan Engineering technology is used in the Hotmelt Coating Station. Together with the Silicone Coating Station, this forms the heart of the coating equipment range.
A station suited to both laminate and linerless – how is that possible? The principle behind the technique of the HYBRID technology is rotation. When switching from laminate to linerless, the Hotmelt Coating Station rotates. In this way, both sides of the paper or foil strip can be coated with hotmelt. And it takes just 15 minutes to switch applications!
Unique and distinctive
The HYBRID technology offers label producers countless new possibilities. The different coating and converting techniques in a single line offer many benefits. Because the adhesive and silicone are applied simultaneously, it is possible to make special laminates that are truly distinctive. What's more, it is lucrative for producers to make their own laminate. In addition, the HYBRID technology brings the relatively small linerless market within reach of every label producer. And that gives them an enormous advantage versus the market.
Maan Engineering's new HYBRID Lamination Coating Line will be presented during Labelexpo Americas 2018, from 25 through 27 September, at stand 1804.
