SMARTLAM: Smart laminating line for your production

The BÜRKLE SMARTLAM was first developed in the 80s for small to large series and has been installed more than 500 times worldwide until today. Our concepts for laminating plastic cards are defined by a multitude of application and production possibilities. With the short cycle solution, which BÜRKLE has already been using in other application areas and industries for years, a new technology for the plastic cards industry has been offered for some time now. As a result, the SMARTLAM portfolio offers a high degree of flexibility to enable cost-efficient and high-quality production for small, medium and large series.

Laminating systems
SMARTLAM LAC: Medium series and special production
The cost-efficient and space-saving solution LAC is characterised by a single-stage heating and cooling process. The parameters defined for the process (pressure, temperature) are controlled without interruption in the compact system. The number of levels can be selected individually. The LAC is used for medium and special functions.
