Synseal has invested in a 6th PVC-U profile lamination machine to further expand foil finishing capabilities at the company’s main production headquarters in Huthwaite, Nottinghamshire.
Synseal’s £100,000 investment has purchased a new NWA.300.7000 profile lamination machine from WPR Srl, who are based near to Venice in Northern Italy and are Europe’s leading supplier of machinery for the profile lamination industry.
WPR Srl and sister company Taka Srl, who supply adhesive and primer for the profile lamination process, are both represented by Adhesive Solutions Ltd in the UK. Synseal’s new profile lamination machine is the third new foiling line installed by Adhesive Solutions, in addition to an automatic foil slitting machine from WPR and technical upgrades for the three original Synseal foiling lines to bring them fully up to date and in line with WPR specifications.
“We are delighted with the practical and specialist support provided by Adhesive Solutions,” says Synseal’s Production Director Robin Byron. “This additional profile lamination line will help us to respond efficiently to satisfy customer requirements and meet increased sales demand for foiled products, as our Synseal group continues to grow.”
The new WPR machine is fitted with all the latest profile lamination technology including a precision coating head, automatic priming system for using Zero VOC primers and hot melt PUR application equipment.
“I have been supplying machinery and adhesive to Synseal’s production team for over 10 years,” comments Mike Dean of Adhesive Solutions Ltd, “and we enjoy an excellent working relationship with Synseal – they are a dynamic company who are always requiring the very latest technology and this progressive approach fits perfectly with WPR’s aim of driving continuous improvement for the lamination process.”
