Rubber is a flexible material of which the characteristics are fairly easy to adjust and therefore ideal for different kinds of applications in the automotive, industrial markets and consumer markets.
Rubber is available in many sorts and each kind has its own characteristics such as:
Rubber is a material that can be optimized with Crest machinery to become lighter in weight, stronger or scratch resistant. After certain processes, this material can be used for applications that require high or low temperature resilient materials or can be made UV-resistant. With the Crest industrial laminators the rubber can be provided with all kinds of material like a film – for example PTFE – to become suitable for high temperatures. By laminating different sorts of rubber it’s possible to create a strong result with the best qualities.
The Crest laminators are able to laminate rubber either single sided or double sided. Depending on the required end result, the material can be processed by – for example – slitting, cross cutting or printing. With the Crest laminators it is possible to laminate rubber in the following processes:
Laminator Fly Cutter
The Crest Laminator Fly Cutter has been specifically developed to laminate various sorts of sheets, single or double-sided, hot or cold. Ingeniously engineered to separate laminated sheets automatically, the fly cutting system ensures a non-stop production process, especially suitable for polyurethane foam, or even wood.Read More
The Crest Laminator Slitter is developed to laminate different adhesives and films to foam materials and slitting it to the desired width before rewinding on a roll. Fast switching between materials can be done by the rotary carousel mechanism. With the lifting system on top of the laminator, the operator is able to change the rolls of material quickly and safely.
With adjustable added (internal and external) heat, the process can be optimized to perfection for each material.
Winder / Unwinder
The Crest wind up / unwind units are developed for handling various media. The units feature auto-tensioning and automatically regulated wind up speed for perfectly wound rolls. Crest also designs specific winders/unwinders for the handling of bigger rolls and weights over 1000 kg.Read More
Winder Slitter Laminator
The Crest Winder Slitter Laminator is a heavy duty machine developed to laminate foam on a polyester base and slitting the materials to the correct size. Base materials are fed from ø1200mm big rolls (up to 500kg) by the unwinding units and are slit to the correct width by the slitting unit. After slitting, the materials are laminated. In order to optimize the material properties, a second laminating roller set is placed that stretches the material slightly and pressurizes it again. Before winding the laminated material, it can be slit to the correct width and in multiple strips.Read More
The Crest TS laminator is a high quality lamination machine using heat and high pressure. The machine is very suitable to apply a protective laminate on top of UV printed substrates for example. The TS’s special characteristics avoid silvering effects when applying pressure sensitive laminates on rough surfaces and UV printed material.Read More
The Crest ES 1600 is a multi-functional machine for high-quality laminations, panel mounting of images and encapsulation of prints. The machine is available in a 2 and 4 laminating roller version. The Crest machine is suitable for pressure and heat-sensitive lamination and encapsulation processes. It is able to process various types of lamination and encapsulation supplies.Read More
Crest Roll Loader
The CRL-300 has been especially designed to transport, load and unload heavy rolls. Special attention has been given to health and safety aspects. One person is able to move around and load or unload heavy rolls efficiently and without the risk of injury. The CRL-300 has a low frame design and takes rolls from storage and transport them to equipment loading stations. The handwinch is equipped with an automatic brake mechanism and operates easily without excessive physical force.Read More
The Crest Coreless Winder is developed to wind materials like carpets and underlayment without cores. Finished coreless rolls, can be cut to the desired length according to input recipes and can be packed into a bag semi-automatically.Read More
