MPCLL Print E-mail

Coating and laminating plants as well as application-systems in modular design within the textile scope, with one or several identical or different application-systems integrated in one installation, type "MPCLL" (Multi purpose coating and laminating line), Mod. 2004 under the registered brand name IMATEP®. Technical description only on demand.

Possible module-combinations presented in the following layout-drawing

Schema: MPCLL ¦ layout 3 ¦ layout 3a ¦ layout 3b ¦ layout 5


Which requirements did we put forward to our design engineers?

Requirement profile for the new development of a

Multi purpose coating and laminating line
Type MPCLL, construction year 2004, Brand-mark IMATEP® in the working widths-ww-from 1800 mm up to 4000 mm

for production of BI- and TRILAMINATES in the technical textile field (flexible substrates) in one-pass-operation.

A. Modular design of the frames, in container adequate overall dimensions (export overseas)

  • Installation also to be operated without crane, low headroom is important, no second floor.
  • Good access to all parts, if possible no enclosures
  • Operating friendly and simple but solid construction.
  • Modules if possible in one unit-length or in an undivided figure divisible of one unit-length, connected to eachother in a detachable way.

B. The installation can actually include the following modules:

1.    Unwinding first substrate
2.    Spraying application for wet adhesive, ethylenic acetate soluable reactive PUR or dispersion adhesive
3.    Lay-on-system nozzle application  for hotmelt adhesive and dispersion adhesive "Fine Liner"
4.    Unwinding second substrate, first laminating station (nip)
5.    Scattering unit  for powder adhesive, granulate
6.    Web- or film-adhesive unwinding, IR- heating-field, unwinding third substrate, second laminating station (nip), planishing roller unit
7.    Cooling drum
8.    Compensation unit, winding
9.    Combi- application- cabin for spraying solvent based adhesive, hotmelt adhesive and dispersion adhesive.
        Alternatively:  Combi-application-cabin for spraying water based adhesive and hotmelt adhesive.
10.  Vertical infrared drier
11.  Deposit table with roller guidance
12.  Fabric accumulator
13.  Reversing winder
14.   Double belt lamination press

C.    Possibility of coupling 5 different application modules (procedures) : always contactless to the substrate

1.  Spraying-procedure, wet adhesive, ethylenic acetate soluable reactive PUR
2.  Dispersion adhesive
3.  Lay-on-system nozzle application for hotmelt and dispersion adhesives "Fine Liner"
4.  Scattering-procedure, powder adhesive, granulate with a large accessory program
5.  Web- or film-adhesive by unwinding.

The application modules in module 9 and 3 are executed in sliding manner in and out the cabin after their application need. All application modules can be switched on or off according to requirements. A subsequent installation of new modules must be possible.

D. Material motion

  • Continuous-belt, respectively heated or not heated rollers.
  • As few electronic as possible, but PLC control.
  • Production speed depending on the application system and on product .
  • Respecting CE- standards
  • Meeting the EX-protection-rules ATEX 94/EG when working with solvent based adhesive.
  • Central rising unwinder unit.
  • Rising roll batcher
  • Rotary stretcher
  • All electric and pneumatic connections are executed by plug type connectors.


Advantages of this new development of a coating and laminating installation executed in modular design, brand-name IMATEP®, Type "MPCLL", mod. 2004 with several integrated fully developed application-procedures, partly existent  since years in the market.

It concerns the first existing system on the market where different application-procedures are integrated in one installation in modular construction. The modules are principally executed in one-storied manner and container conform overall dimensions. All energy-connections between the different modules are executed as plug type connectors and the handling of the machinery is held as simple as possible.

European Patent according to ART. 97 (2) EPÜ, No. 1413430

The advantages are obvious:

  •  When a change of application system is desired, it is not necessary to buy a complete new installation. Modules can be switched off or over driven as well as interchanged and so offer  openness to new application systems coming on the market.
  • Sea-container conform overall dimensions of the modules mean saving on enormous packaging costs, especially for overseas-transport.
  • Plug type connections means quick and easy change of the concept of the installation.
  • One-story construction means independence from cranes when charging the installation and therefore minimizing  handling costs and increasing accident prevention.
  • The installation can produce three-laminates in one pass.
  • Possibility of starting up only with one application system and to extend later on (investment step by step).


What directed and stimulated us to develop this kind of installation concept?

So many contacts and discussions in the last 15 years with clients all over the world showed us, that these companies working in the field of textile laminating always mentioned the same problems. Until now a completely new plant had to be installed for each application-system. Against high investments on one side stands an enormous price decline for laminates on the other side, that means the price pressure from the clients of our clients and the restrictive position of our banking system for investment-credits requiring a  return of investment within two years (before five years). New orders which demand a production method with different application systems couldn't be accepted, before investing in a new production line. The on all markets demanded flexibility was no more existent. Expensive individual constructions often combined with luxurious unnecessary components were built in special purpose machine constructions, often in components which cannot be disassembled, and in not container adequate overall dimensions causing enormous seaworthy packaging costs for overseas-transport. It was often built in 2 story manner which causes a difficult and complicated handling, so even a production of a trilaminate in one pass through the installation is often   impossible.
