COMAINTEL’s Induction Systems to improve and refine Thermal Lamination Processes

Thermal Lamination can significantly benefit by implementing Comaintel’s Induction Heating Technology and Know-how. Whether it’s to improve surfaces finish, increase the lamination speed, or improve product quality, Comaintel Solutions have generated important savings and payback to its customers.

Heating work roll is essential in many manufacturing processes, from the Pulp & Paper industry using induction heated work roll for caliper control in the calendaring process, to precise lamination requiring uniform temperature heating all across for optimal adherance of the end products.

However, heating rolls have brought some production challenges and issues using conventional heating systems.

Production Issues:

  • Slow production process to insure product quality;
  • Hard to keep temperature control across roll to insure process consistency
  • Very long start-up process (too long to heat rolls);
  • Production quality is inconsistent using conventional heating solutions (IR, heated oil or lubricant, hot air blowers, etc.);

 

Solutions:

Comaintel’s Induction Heating Technology and Product Line address each project with the same approach: by inquiring your production issues or your process improvement objectives. Our goal is to make sure we recommend the best suited solution with the highest ROI for your company.

With Comaintel’s products and solutions implemented at different customers, we have shown the following benefits:

  • Increased process speed;
  • Faster start-ups and roll changes (very fast roll heating);
  • Improved control of lamination and profile or patterns transfer;
  • Less waste products;
  • High power efficiency (up to 95%);
  • Lower energy costs;
  • Higher and more consistent temperature;
  • Easy retrofit (Comaintel’s Induction Heating Systems can be adapted to almost any processing equipments).
