Description

The JG-LMX2_1830 series are professional glass laminating machines for use without an autoclave system. The JG-LMX series can laminate EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate), SENTRYGLAS® (SGP), and PVB (Polyvinyl Butyral). The JG-LMX2_1830 is composed of two independent convection heating chambers, a PLC computer for formulae entry, a control cabinet, 4 heating tables with vacuum bladders, an elevator for table lifting/lowering and ingress/egress into and out of the oven, a table cooling section, hydraulic pump, and vacuum pump. Each heating convection chamber can accepts two laminating table trays. Each laminating tray has an available laminating area of 72”X120”. The computer controlled heating chambers can each run independent heating formulae. This option is very useful for production runs that require different heating formulae due to varying glass composition (i.e., laminating ¼”+ ¼” vs. 3/8”+3/8” or due to use of different interlayer’s). In the aforementioned example, two heating trays can be running one cycle and the other two trays can run a different cycle concurrently. The laminating process with use of the JG-LMX series works as follows: Glass is first seamed, cleaned, and assembled in sandwich form with the glass as the outer shell and the PVB, SENTRYGLAS®, or EVA film (or EVA+interlayer+EVA) constituting the inner layer(s) of the glass sandwich. The glass sandwich is positioned on the heating tables and the vacuum is drawn. The movable hearth is positioned over the production table and the heating process is initiated. Heating cycles may last anywhere from 60min – 190min depending on the interlayer, glass thickness, and/or type and thickness of interlayer film(s) used. After the heating cycles, the laminated glass is cooled.. Lamination work may be done for an array of decorative glass, ballistic, or security applications such as for handrails, pointed support walls, and canopies. The PVB, SENTRYGLAS®, or EVA films may each be layered to its own type to achieve desired thickness of the laminate. In addition, decorative interlayers such as fabrics, rice paper, film, and PET may be used with EVA to achieve a desired effect. *Note: The use of PVB requires additional material handling equipment prior to the actual laminating process.
