Hawthorne, NJ-based Radiant Energy Systems, Inc. has added a second pilot line to its research and development laboratory. This new pilot coating line is designed for laminating webs such as nonwovens using powder or web adhesives. Webs that run on this line include films, nonwovens and fabrics. The line consists of an unwind roll for the primary substrate, a powder adhesive spreader, a belt to carry the product through an infrared heater to melt the powder, an unwind for the second web, a laminating nip and a rewind. Webs up to 30" wide can be run. The line can be rented for any period of time and customers are encouraged to participate in testing.
