Homogeneous floorings

 

Double belt press plant for the manufacturing of homogeneous floorings

 

 

 

 

Fields of application
Forming of thermoplastic bulk materials to webs, e.g. production of resilient floor coverings even from recycled materials.

Principle of operation
By means of the scattering unit [A] the plastic granules are applied to the advanced lower belt [1] and compressed through the calender roll [2]. After the preheating zone [3+4] the granules are melted thoroughly in the contact heating zone [5+7] and are sized to the required thickness by means of the of the nip rolls [6+8] that are arranged one on top of the other. After that the substrate is cooled to the required outlet temperature in the cooling zone [9]. 

 

 

In our Thermofix Technology Center you can try a fully equipped double belt press.
