Foliant – Gemini- C400A

The FOLIANT Gemini C 400 is a manual high pressure laminating machine developed for a digital printing machines outputs  lamination. The machine is equipped with a pneumatic system of laminating rollers pressure with an easy thrust control. A small  compressor is integrated inside the machine frame. The machine has been designed with an operating width of 380 mm and it  represents an ideal choice for professional single side lamination in digital shops and all other printing shops, printing and  processing sheets up to B3+ size (the length of laminated sheets is not limited, in practice lamination it is ~70 cm). Maximum  speed is up to 15 meters/min.

The machine’s main feature is the pneumatic pressure system in a heavy duty mechanism enabling to achieve a very  high working pressure, one single phase 220 – 240 V supply cable, a small integrated compressor inside the machine  frame (i.e. no external source of pressured air is required), a nice design and an easy machine operation.

The machine is being supplied with a modular stand covered with a nicely designed side panels as a standard  accessory. The machine requires a minimum floor space of 74 x 117 cm.

The FOLIANT Gemini C 400 laminator maximum sheet size is 38 x 66 cm. The minimum sheet size is 30 x 25 cm (A4).  The roll of a film is mounted on an easy handle shaft with a film tension control breaker. The shaft capacity is up to  3000 m of 24 – 31 microns film. The film holder unit is equipped with a trim slitter and a perforating wheel.

The laminating process is done between two laminating rollers – a highly polished chrome roller, and a lower hard  rubber pressure roller. The laminating roller is heated with an infra-red heating spiral, with a sensitive contact  temperature sensor. The pressure is pneumatically adjustable to achieve an extra high pressure between the  laminating rollers. A small compressor is integrated inside the machine frame.

The laminating unit is equipped with an adjustable twin decurl unit:

– With a decurl blade for offset printed sheets decurling

– With a decurl roller for digital printed sheets decurling (to prevent scratches on sheets printed on both sides by  digital print with sensitive inks).


The FOLIANT Gemini C 400 is a manual machine. The feeding is manual. The laminating unit equipped with a synchronized feeding  conveyor and an adjustable side guider for an easy loading.


The FOLIANT Gemini C 400 is a manual machine. The separation is manual. Due to the perforation of film (done in the process of  laminating) the whole process is easy.


Any time later the machine can be upgraded with an automatic separator. The belt separator (sheeter) is equipped with a separating  roller and a deflection wheel. The separated sheets are delivered into a reception unit or a vibrating jogger (options). More information is  available at FOLIANT Gemini C 400S.


The machine laminates the BOPP films (23 – 42 microns) and Nylon films (max. 35 microns).
