Panel Express

MODEL # – Heated Panel Express 68″

SERIAL # – 392884


CATEGORIES – Rotary Press


The Black Bros. Panel Express heat-assisted rotary laminator is designed to laminate all types of HPL down to individual parts 44″ long. 

When used in conjunction with fast-tack PVA adhesives, the Panel Express requires no additional curing or press time, boards can move straight to production. By using environmentally-friendly PVA adhesives, it eliminates the hazards and waste related to solvent-based contact adhesive methods.


• Six driven, single-speed, 7.5″ (191 mm) Silicone 70 Duro rolls force out air and nip substrate and laminate together
• Four wide-area radiant heaters raise substrate surface temperature to approximately 150 degrees F. Heat reduces moisture, accelerating adhesive cure
• Single handwheel adjusts mechanical down-pressure and opening height
•  Integrated control panel arrangement adjusts heater temperature and controls  the main on/off function
• Variable speed drive (10 to 30 fpm/3 to 9.1 mpm)

• Approximate Weight: 2,950 pounds (1340 kg)

Electrical Specification:
• Operating power supply: 230 volt / 60 hertz / 3 phase

Press Time
• Pressing time depends on the type and thickness of the laminate, the press temperature, the adhesive formula and other factors. Due to the number of variants, it is impossible to accurately predict the press time.
• A pressing cycle of 150 seconds can be achieved with most standard 3DL’s.

Pressing Programs
(Single-sided lamination of a contoured substrate surface)
• Using the machine to press standard 3DL’s to the substrate
• Using the machine with a membrane to press veneer to the substrate
• Pressing 3DL without the membrane

 Pressing Area
(Net pressure chamber height = lower tray cavity + upper tray frame cavity)
• Maximum chamber height with a 2” deep tray is 5”, however, the ability to utilize that dimension will vary based on the geometry of the parts, and the thickness of the 3DL.
• Maximum usable area is 48” x 96”.
• Maximum part height = work piece height + pedestal/template height (recommended not to exceed 2.75”).

Pressing Materials
• Substrates: the machined profile of the substrate should be matched to the laminate, and the working parameters of the machine.
– MDF (double refined yields best definition)
– Particle board and other acceptable substrates.
• Laminating overlay material
– 3DL (3-dimensional laminate) like PVC, ABS, PO, PET, PETG, APET which are suitable for the pressing procedure
– Heat Transfer Foils
• Laminating Adhesives
– One-part and Two-part water based polyurethane dispersion

What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
