Threading the Delicate Substrate
(DF series laminators only)
The Delicate Substrate or Roller Nose lamination Adapter (RNA)
attaches to the feed table of all Think & Tinker, Ltd. roller laminators.
Although it was designed primarily to auto-feed delicate and/or flimsy parts into the
lamination rollers, it has also found widespread use as a web guide for precisely
laminating protective coatings to flexible circuits.
The adapter consists of stainless steel brackets that attach to
the table, a chrome plated center shaft, Delrin® washers, polished aluminum
web guides and a PVC spacer that determines the with of the roller. The spacer is
made from common 1/2" schedule 40 PVC water pipe, so it is quite easy to modify the
roller width to accommodate a broad selection of applications.
The brackets are designed to position the top edge of the roller
slightly above the top of the feed table. This insures that the feed web, and
anything that it is carrying, enters the front rollers exactly tangent to the
"nip" region where initial lamination occurs. Tangential injection is
absolutely necessary when handling extremely delicate substrates, e.g. 0.007" thick
micro-sheet glass and 0.003" thick silicon wafers.
