PCM Laminat LH Overview

To process solvent based laminating adhesive directly from the supplied containers, 2KM developed the Process Control Mix (PCM) LH.

This system utilises a batch metering system based around precision flowmeters. This format allows the operator to enter up to 50 recipes into the control system and recall them at the touch of a button. This coupled with the variable volume programme enables batch sizes to be tailored to the job being ran on the laminating system.

The materials are fed to the mixing stations via air operated transfer pumps drawing materials from 1000 litre IBC or 205 litre drums. These materials enter the mixing vessel via pneumatic inlet valves and the materials passing through flowmeters.
