OPPLIGER: THE EXCELLENCE IN SHEET-TO-SHEET LITHO-LAMINATING

Since 1994, Oppliger, a Swiss engineer, is leading the market of the laminators. Our facility is located in Brescia, Northern Italy.

The fully automatic sheet to sheet litho laminator Oppliger Sintesy 1616 S3 and 2020 S3 is an extremely high-performance machine that is fundamentally different from the rest of the machines on the market thanks to its innovative technical characteristics.

Some of the key characteristics that make the Oppliger Sintesy line one of the leaders in the world market include: high-speed performance of up to 9000 sheets per hour, a no-waste concept, high-precision lamination even with large formats, set-up times of just one minute thanks to the Matic S3 system and savings on glue consumption of up to 35%.

Thanks to all of this and more, another well-known manufacturer of machines within the graphics and converting industry has chosen to build the Sintesy machine under license. In addition, its edge-to-edge lamination, coversheets with grammage below 150 g/m2 and several new technical details have also become standard for this machine line.

Another key feature of the Sintesy machine is its compactness: thanks to a unique delivery system it is only 56 ft in length which makes it on average 28 ft shorter than its competitors without compromising on quality or reliability. Sintesy is available in two sizes: 65”x65” (standard) and 81”x81” (maxi). It is also modular, which gives greater flexibility for the user.

Yet another selling point of the Sintesy S3 product line are auxiliary machines that allow it to be 100% integrated into the end user’s existing production line.

One such auxiliary machine is the new DUPLEX prefeeder, which feeds the substrate completely independently with any kind of material and allows the user to operate the machine automatically and safety. The other auxiliary machine is the innovative Un-Flip-Flop Pile Equaliser TWIST 160 that normalizes pallets with laminated sheets and is stacked in such a way as to avoid the warping effect.

The ready-formed and alternated packages are stacked in an even pile ready to go into the die-cutter, hence avoiding the need for manual operation by at least two employees in the die-cutting department.

The latest sales figures from Italy, Spain, Poland, Ukraine, the US, France and so on confirm the global leadership of our company. For us there are no problems, only solutions to meet the needs of our customers.

It also enables them to combine the pre-feeder with a corrugator to create an ‘in-line’ production set-up without compromising the functioning of the standard sheet–sheet lamination. Many major customers have chosen the Sintesy S3 solution from Oppliger for its technical features which differ so much from anything else on the market.

When a potential customer is deciding between the Sintesy S3 and one of our competitors’ products, all we have to do is demonstrate our machine on their premises and we will always come out on top. No one of others machines gave even comparable results to those achieved by the Sintesy S3 when it comes to performance and reliability.

Several very important companies in the USA have placed their trust in Oppliger’s Company.
