Universal Laminators have a variety of solutions and years of experience, initially based on personal experience of operating our own polishing lines.


We now supply all your requirements for automating the filming and sheet handling of stainless steel sheet and plate polishing and brushing lines.


The top line SprintLine system fully-automates the  stainless steel polishing line process and features the Rapier™ filmer.

This system is the fastest in the range, and can process in excess of 300 sheets per hour (Sheet sizes 3000 x 1500mm).  


We can supply all the materials handling systems to fully automate the stainless steel polishing line:

conveyor systems, sheet handling and high speed laminators, with control systems and  smooth controls integration,

on both new and existing lines.

Our control systems can capture events, be modem linked, or be as simple as you wish for low cost functionality.  


At the core of our filming and handling systems for the automation of stainless steel polishing and brushing lines are our automatic laminators with our unique Micro-Cut film cutting system where the film is cut, before it is applied to the sheets!

  Developed over the past 3 decades, the system allows extremely fast cycle times and gives flexibility of cut position simply not possible with "post" lamination cutting systems.  

With Micro-Cut you can even cut the film short of the end of the sheet, leaving bare steel to order.
