Pilot Line & Lab Calendering Trials

Our pilot scale heated roll embossing and calendering machine allows us to trial customer's product before going into full scale production. Our 18” wide electrically heated pilot lab machine can run at speeds up to 300 ft/min and temperatures up to 500F with nip pressures exceeding 1500 PLI. The three-roll stack can be configured with a variety of smooth or resilient rolls. Our unique removable engraved steel sleeves make testing custom patterns efficient and economical.

Film, foil, nonwoven’s, paper, rigid plastics, flexible plastics and coated fabrics are a few of the substrates that can be processed on our versatile setup. This allows the customer to see the product sample without having to invest in production equipment and additionally quantify the operating parameters.
