AGL | aglinc.com
Advanced Greig Laminators has released the AGL 54 fi lm-to-glass laminator,
engineered for applying optically clear fi lms to a range of plate glass substrates. A redesigned aluminum in-feed table feeds the glass into a side
registration with floating roller ball technology for scratch-free production,
while an automated transducer tension control system prevents fi lm distortion
and necking, according to the company.
Additional features include a heated nip-roll design; cantilevered unwind
and release liner rewind stations; a static elimination system; variable speed
control; and an upper unwind fi lm slitting system. Compatible with substrates
up to 50-in. wide.
