Alongside its existing relationship with Folienwerk Wolfen to supply the pioneering evguard films to the UK, this new partnership means that GPP can offer a full solution for customers looking to start with EVA lamination.Based in Lecco, an area famous for its glass machinery companies, TK is a strong believer in manufacturing excellence for its range of tempering, laminating and bending ovens.With distribution around the world and offices in Russia, Brazil, and the USA, the UK can now also benefit from TK’s high quality equipment following RegaLead’s appointment as the UK and Ireland distributor of lamination kilns.
Guy Hubble, Joint Managing Director at RegaLead explains: “When we launched GPP it was with the purpose of providing glass processing customers with the highest quality added value products for glass, alongside the expertise, advice and support RegaLead provides as standard. In line with this we have taken delivery of a Lamijet 01 from TK for our new training facility in Manchester so customers can come and see the equipment for themselves to appreciate its build quality, ease of use and unique features.”
Sturdy and equipped with a fully extractable trolley for glass loading and unloading, the Lamijet 01’s heating chamber is coated with dust proof calcium silicate sheets which have a low thermal inertia and a limit temperature of 500°C. Infra red heaters are situated above and below the work surface, supported by ceramic insulators. In addition, the machine incorporates a built in silicon membrane bagging system with quick Lock Seal closing, so flat and curved glass can be laminated without using a disposable bag and the Bentrup controller provides a simple to use interface for ease of operation.
