DSI In-house Panel Lamination Process


1. The first stage of the lamination line is the Panel Feeder. It ensures each individual substrate is fed into the production line uniformly.

2. The Panel Cleaner is the second stage. This equipment cleans debris and dust from the panel surface to reduce blemishes.

3. Then, the panel travels through the Roll Coater, which applies equal wets mil of adhesive to either one or both sides of the panel.

4. Next comes the Automated Indexing Station. Here, one long edge of laminate is accurately matched up to an edge of the panel.

5. At the layup station, the operator places the laminate or paper backing directly onto the glued panel. He can do this for a single piece or create a stack of panels for lamination.

6. The powered neoprene rollers on the Transfer Cart move the stack of laminated wood panels without marring or damaging the product. From here the stack can be fed onto the cold press.

7. The length of time the substrates need to be on the Hydraulic Hot Press depends upon the thickness and glue line of the individual panels. The Hydraulic Hot Press runs at temperatures between 180 and 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
