Inlinerless Module – For efficient top-quality linerless production

Maan Engineering’s Inlinerless Module is developed to provide paper or film with a silicone and hotmelt
coating in one passage in a fast, high-quality and efficient manner. The module, the result of 40 years of knowledge and experience in the field of silicone and hotmelt coating, allows for easy production of (linerless) label material. It is designed to be used as an upgrade of an existing machine, but thanks to the addition of unwind and rewind stations it can also be deployed as a stand-alone system. The strength of the Inlinerless Module lies in its functional design, as well as the flexibility and quality of the silicone and hotmelt coating.

Controlled by one control panel
All components of the Inlinerless Module and the connected glueing equipment are controlled with one control panel. This panel is mounted on a rail that is easily repositioned, so that the machine can be controlled from any position. This control panel also performs live monitoring of the values of the various measurements. The system is based on Lenze software, and has a visual, efficient and user-friendly interface.

Web tension measurement, web control and pre-treatment
When the label material has been fed into the module it passes through
the Web Control Service Station, which controls the web for all the subsequent process steps. This is also where the web tension is measured and controlled, and where corona pre-treatment takes place. This improves the adhesion of the coating(s) to the substrate. The corona pre-treatment system is optional in the Inlinerless Module.

Silicone coating with inert curing
The Silicone Coating Station is where the label material is coated with a thin release coating. The silicone coating can be applied full-face or in zones, using a 3-roller system. The optional 5-roller system is available for a lower coating weight. After the silicone coating has been applied it is instantly cured by means of UV in an inert chamber with a controlled oxygen content. This results in extremely rapid curing, which is essential for high-quality linerless labels.

Hotmelt with the high-precision DieRect Roller Coating Head
The pressure-sensitive adhesive coating layer is applied using the DieRect Roller Coating Head. This applicator uses a roller for the precise and direct transfer of the adhesive coating to the label material. Control by three individual pumps allows for accurate setting and adjusting of the coating weight over the width of the substrate. The coating can be applied full-face or in zones. The Module can be equipped with a Slot Nozzle Coating Head for the application of other coating patterns.

Layer thickness measurement of hotmelt coating
The homogeneity and the thickness of the hotmelt coating layer are essential to the production process of high-quality linerless labels. For this reason the Inlinerless Module is equipped with an optional coating thickness measurement system. This system measures the weight of the hotmelt coating layer during production and provides a non-stop coating weight distribution model.
