Ultrasonic laminating lines can process materials up to 130” wide with finished product incorporating from two to seven layers combining nonwovens, films, knits, wovens and meshes. By eliminating the use of adhesive materials, ultrasonic bonding is truly a “green” process, and textiles in the layers retain their unique properties including strength, loft, breathability, filtration and chemical resistance while optimizing composite performance. Beckmann Converting can process materials up to 80” wide in hot melt adhesive laminating. A wide variety of adhesives can be used to achieve the in-use requirements, from true thermo-plasts to PURs (Reactive Polyurethane Resins). A range of adhesive add-on weights can be applied by using 4 gram, 10 gram or 16 gram/square meter, random computer dot engraved rolls.
Developments implemented recently position Beckmann Converting with the capacity to handle growing production volume requirements in multiple industries including filtration, environmental, protective apparel, protective covers, healthcare products, cleanroom wipes, among others. Through continuous improvement programs, the company has shortened the lead time to production startup when taking over manufacturing of existing products. When it comes to working with customers on new product development projects, Beckmann Converting employs expert hand sample, roll trial and pre-production verification programs focusing on achieving manufacturability while retaining end use performance of the finished product. These critical processes are formalized in its ISO 9001:2015 standard Quality Management System, recently recertified through September 2022.
