TECHNOLOGIES FOR SEVERAL PROCESSES
We can offer our experience in several industrial processes which can be divided into the substrate nature: plastic films, metallic films, papers, fabrics and non-woven. Coating machines
These substrates are normally wound in rolls, in fact industrial processes are known as roll- to-roll. Chemical compounds are often used and they can be water, solvent or solvent-less based.
We can offer technologies for: Coating machines
- Lamination and transfer lamination
We also supply solutions for R&D department, auxiliary equipment and single machinery which can replace existing ones as well.
COATING – A FLEXIBLE TECHNOLOGY
Coating is a technology in which chemical compound with specific rheological characteristics, is applied on a continuous substrate.
Coating can be divided into two main families: Coating machines
- Direct coating: compound is coated directly on a substrate, normally textile;
- Un-Direct or transfer coating: compound is coated in a film or paper which can be even removed at the end of the provess
The coating applicator can be by knife or rotating cylinder. The industrial process does not included only the coating head but additional equipment in order to create the complete production line (e.g. unwinder, rewinder, accumulator, driers,..)
IMPREGNATION – THE RIGHT TECHNOLOGY FOR THE RIGHT BASE
Impregnation is a continuous process in which substrate is soaked up with a chemical compound in order to become more structural stable and suitable for other processes.
Woven or non-woven substrates can be impregnated even more than 6000 mm wide
Hot air drying and curing equipment can be electric, Ir or by gas heating. By gas using catalytic panels in mineral wool, ceramic or metal foam. Coating machines
EMBOSSING – MARKS TELLING ABOUT YOU
Embossing is an industrial process in which a strong mechanical pressure marks or smoothes surface of substrates. Embossing can be made at room or at specific temperature. Matex Srl.
Choice depend on customer or article requirement. Coating machines
LAMINATION AND TRANSFER LAMINATION – SIMILAR THINGS MIGHT BE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
Processes of lamination and transfer lamination are commonly known as very similar but in fact they are completely different one to the other.
Lamination is the technology which brings 2 or more substrates together in order to get a new single substrate. Matex Srl.
In transfer lamination instead, a substrate is temporary in contact with another in order to transfer its properties and then being removed. The mostly know applications use transfer films or paper.
“Releasing Machine” of Matex Srl represents a specific solution for this process.
DRYING – AN INDEPENDENT TECHNOLOGY Matex Srl.
Drying is a subject much more complex than what it looks like and it must be considered and treated as an independent technology.
Most of time just drying substrates is not enough, but it is necessary to transfer calories in order to activate and complete chemical reactions.
A good drier must have heating and ventilation uniformity in the whole cross width.
Driers are crucial equipment for a good quality product and production capacity.
Our driers are one of our strongest points which make our name famous worldwide.
R&D: THE BASEMENT OF YOUR SUCCESS
Today, much more than yesterday, R&D is becoming an important key factor for competing and succeed in global market.
Matex, in order to meet this need, can offer some pilot equipment in order to simulate the industrial processes.
AUXILIARY PRODUCTS AND SINGLE MACHINERY – INNOVATIVE REALIZATIONS
There are some products which cannot be included in our families division, but this does not mean they are less important. Following are some of them:
Ask with mail firstname.lastname@example.org directly to PU Consulting AB for your quote. It will guide you in order to give us the basic information and receive your quote shortly.
Our quotes are normally of three different levels: Matex Srl.
1° level – Indicative: it includes generic information with precision in price and delivery time of 20-30% about. Indicative quote are made in about 1-2 weeks
2° level – Budget: it includes the list of scope, details on delivery time, term, payment, warranty and technical specification with a precision within 20%. Delivered in about 2-3 weeks
3° level – Detailed: it includes technical description of each machinery in the scope. This offer is the closest to the contract so price and delivery time are precise.
