South Shore Controls has been designing and developing equipment for laminating and coating applications for many years and is our companies core competency.
In collaboration with our customers, South Shore Controls develops custom processes and machinery to transform materials like paper, film, foil, plastics and nonwoven material into useable products for industries ranging from aerospace to medical.
Designing machines for web conversions requires years of applications expertise. Tension control, web alignment and software development are a few of the variables one must deal with when designing or upgrading existing lines. South Shore has the experience and solid reputation of the Company to call upon when the application appears impossible.
Developed for a company who specializes in cutting edge technology. Using specialty engineered polymers for the replacement of glass lenses. The material is layers of specialized polymer film only a few molecules thick stacked, shaped then baked together. The materials technical name is Gradient Refractive Index (GRIN) Optics.
South Shore controls developed an extremely specialized winder for this converting application.
Designed and built specifically for prototyping and testing of small-scale short runs, the new machine is perfect for testing products. The laminator will typically run 5,000 ft/day across a 7” web width, making it ideal for niche markets.
