The Topaz laminator 


Sheffield-based manufacturer of laminating and coating technologies, Cellcoat will be introducing a new reel-to-reel laminator at Labelexpo.

Developed to operate with HP Indigo, Xeikon and Screen digital presses, the Topaz covers a wide range of stocks and applications, including in-mould labels, flexible packaging and cartonboard, and is available in web widths of 540, 760 and 1200mm.

Running at speeds up to 50m/min, the laminator has been developed to work in conjunction with AplyFilm resin technologies to offer instant bond dry films thereby cutting down on processing time. Optional features include corona station, web alignment control, slitting and waste extraction.

‘The Cellcoat team are passionate about using their years of experience to find commercially viable solutions to opportunities that are emerging as a result of digital print technology and help printers diversify,’ commented managing director Jonathan Smith.

The machine is already in production at several facilities in the market. ‘Cellcoat listened to our needs and run numerous trials on printed stocks to help us perfect our unique production process – it has given us a new solution that the market didn’t even know it needed … this is guaranteeing the future of our business!’ said the production director of a global injection moulding company in Central Europe.
