D&K launches 2 new Laminators at the show

25 Sep 2017 D&K Europe Ltd

D&K have been manufacturing equipment for over 35 years and have chosen IPEX 2017 to launch two new laminators.

The Neptune PB is the latest double-sided laminator and is based on the single-sided B3 Neptune, launched at Drupa 2016, and the award winning Europa PB. The new model features twin laminating stations, each with a heated chrome roller and conventional rubber nip roller, proven in the Europa PB. This configuration, initially conceived for photobook producers, allows both sides to be laminated to the same high quality unlike the more traditional double sided model that heat the rubber nip roller to achieve a double sided result.

The Europa FK returns to D&K USA’s roots and offers the first flying knife separator we have built in Europe to separate films that conventional “burst” type separators will not. Films such as polyester for packaging applications, nylon for paperback book covers and thicker OPP films for specialist applications can now be separated as easily as standard lightweight OPP films. The Flying Knife version is based on our best-selling, award winning, B2 Europa that was launched at the last IPEX and will join the Europa range of single and double-sided models that also includes the Europa EL for lamination and embossing. D&K USA developed the very first generally affordable laminator with a Flying Knife back in 1981 since when the huge volume of installations worldwide has given rise to a system that is well proven.  Like all Europa models, the new Europa FK has the option of adding a Stacker at the delivery.

Come along to Stand C4 to see both machines in action and talk to us about how to look at ways of cutting costs, increasing profitability and gaining additional business.
