Product Overview

Laminate Bedding Products With Accuracy & Quality Bonds Without The Need For Multiple Operators

The fully automated lamination system is a hands-off solution that eliminates the manual labor used to build the bed. It allows the machine complete control of glue application, build, and cure of the mattress. This automation improves the number of in-spec units, while giving you enhanced throughput of up to 15 seconds per layer.

Maximize Automation with C³ Lamination

Often, the LCN1500 system is installed to further automate the lamination process. When installed, the accuracy of layer placement and consistency improves.
Every drop of glue should be used to adhere the layers of your build, not create a mess on your floor or of your products. C³’s lamination works towards efficient use of glue to save you money in consumables and in overall production efficiency and quality.

Example Lamination Recipe

For a standard queen, 3-layer foam mattress, we follow the following example recipe.

Glue per layer: 6 g/ft2
Tamp Press Recipe: 25% compression with a 1 second dwell; 50% compression with a 1 second dwell
Total Throughput: 45 seconds

Using gap control, the rollers will meet the foam at the right height to ensure each layer reaches the necessary glue coat weight. This prevents from too much or too little glue application.

The benefit of the LCN1500 is that no operators were needed to build this mattress!

How The Lamination System Works

Square

The machine holds to a centerline to ensure it enters the rollers square. These small grips gently pull the product and place it squarely in line.

Apply Glue

C³'s application rollers are steadfast and provide incredible accuracy in applying glue.

Place

Once glued, layers are placed onto each other to build the bed. With prior squaring, edges align within millimeters.

Press

The tamp press passes air through the finished laminate to better cure the glue and secure a tear-foam bond.

Scale The Automation Of Your Lamination System

There are many configurations when looking to scale a lamination system. The beauty of using the LCN1500 model is that you can reach full automation of your production line.

Full Automation Of Mattress Production

Operators no longer need to manually work with product in production. Instead, they'll manage the line and make sure it runs smoothly.

Fast Throughput

Without manual adjustments at the build table, you'll take full advantage of the machinery's throughput.

Trim After Lamination

The LCN1500 model works best when trimming is done after lamination. That way, you have a perfect laminate every time.

FAQS

Frequently Asked Questions

What kinds of products or materials can be laminated in this system?
  • Foam or latex layers
  • Pocketed coil layers
  • Convoluted or contoured layers
  • Scrim material and most nonwovens
Does the system work with hot melt or acrylic glue?

Yes! We suggest water-based adhesives like latex glue, yet the system works with all three. For hot melt glue, you’d opt for the addition to dispense the glue. With acrylic glue, you’d likely add misting heads and a glue pump to maintain its tact, as well as an IR heating unit.

What's the main benefit of full automation at this point in production?

Most customers install this system in conjunction with destacking units, a trim line, stacking or storage, and lead into assembly. Doing so brings facilities closer to a fully automated manufacturing line which improves product quality, efficiently uses consumables, improves product tracking, and increases throughput.
