Operational Description

The Union Layup Conveyor is utilized within our Engineered Flooring Lamination line to transport and align wood core planks from our Union Hot Melt Roller Coater to our Union Multi Nip Rotary Laminator. During the transportation process, this conveyor also acts as a layup station for an operator to lay up top side lamellas onto the coated surface of each core plank as they exit the hot melt roller coater and before they enter the multi nip rotary laminator.

This roller layup conveyor is powered by a 1 HP motor and has the ability to run up to 100 L.F.P.M. The rolls are capable of being skewed so as to align the coated cores against a fixed stainless-steel guide edge on the outside of each roll. The rolls are constructed of galvanized steel and can be easily removed for cleaning purposes. The overall width and length of the conveyor is all determined by each customer’s specific needs; however, most common lengths are 12’, 14’, and 16’.
