In the 1970s, after the great success obtained with the varnishing machinery, Barberán also began to manufacture panel laminating machines. In this type of machinery, the gluing and roller pressing is important in order to produce a smooth and high quality surface.
BSA has not only been dedicated to manufacturing standard laminating lines. The company has been able to make fully customized lamination projects a reality, working with engineers from various countries to achieve unique, specific lines to mass-produce new trend products, becoming, over time, a true tailor for engineers or businessmen with ideas.

BSA manufactures various series of laminators for different needs; large, medium, small, or occasional productions on demand. These series range from a standard panel width of 1400mm to 2300mm and are suitable for the application of water-based glues (PVAc), urea formalin (UF) and hot melts such as EVA, polyolefin (APAO) or PUR.
They can laminate paper foil and thermoplastics such as PVC, PP, PET, etc., low pressure laminate (CPL) and fleece backed wooden veneer or even cork from the roll.
The RFU series are lamination lines for large productions with heavy large panels. These series are manufactured for panels up to a width of 2300mm, although even wider panels can be made on request.
The construction system of these roller machines or lines is characterized by its great robustness and all of BSA’s experience in installing them in factories around the world.
They are suitable for gluing with PVAc or urea formaldehyde (UF) glues applied to the panel or to the paper or thermoplastic foil, such as PVC, PET, PP, etc., low pressure laminate (CPL) or fleece backed wooden veneer. There are different models to laminate one or both sides of the panel.
The RFU lines are equipped with a brushing machine at the infeed, infrared preheating screens, panel glue spreader, foil unwinders, which can optionally include an automatic splicing system, foil gluing heads, IR screens to evaporate the water content of PVAc glue, pressing calender by one, two, three or four pressing rollers with hydraulic pressure up to 30Kgcm – optionally up to 100Kg/cm – and outfeed table equipped with a rotary cutting device for separating the panels once they are laminated.
The ECOLINE series are economic lamination lines for medium / large productions with panels limited in size to 1600 wide. The construction system of this series is characterized by its reliability thanks again to BSA’s experience in manufacturing and installing this type of lines throughout the world.
Like the RFU series, the ECOLINE series is suitable for gluing with PVAc or urea formaldehyde glues applied to the panel or to the paper or thermoplastic foil like PVC, PET, PP or other plastic based materials, low pressure laminate (CPL) or metal sheet, fleece backed wooden veneer in rolls.
There are different models to laminate one or both sides of the panel. The ECOLINE lines are equipped with a brush cleaner at the infeed, panel preheating, panel glue spreader, foil unwinders, which can optionally include an automatic splicing system, foil gluing heads, IR screens for PVAc glue wáter evaporation, pressing calender by one, two, three or four pressing rollers with hydraulic pressure up to 30Kg/cm – optionally up to 100Kg/cm – and output table with a rotary cutting device for separating panels once laminated.
The ECOLINE-Hotmelt series are economic lamination lines for medium / large productions with panels limited in size to 1600mm wide. The construction system of this series is characterized by its reliability thanks to BSA’s experience in the manufacturing and commissioning of this type of lines throughout the world.
he ECOLINE-Hotmelt series is designed for gluing with EVA or polyolefin (APAO) hot melt glues that require an application temperature of 180-200ºC to laminate paper foil, low pressure laminate (CPL) or fleece backed wooden veneer from the roll or reactive polyurethane hotmelt glues (PUR) with an application temperature of 70-85ºC applied to the panel by roller or foil using a slot nozzle glue head to laminate PVC, PET, PP or other plastic materials, paper or supported wooden veneer from the roll.
There are different models to laminate one or both sides of the panel. The ECOLINE-Hotmelt lines are equipped with a brush cleaner at the infeed, panel preheating, a roller glue spreader for the panel or slot nozzle head and a separate melting unit to apply the glue on the foil, foil unwinders, which can optionally include an automatic splicing system, IR screens, hot pressing calender for EVA or polyolefin glue (APAO) or cold pressing for PUR glue by means of one, two, three or four pressing rollers with hydraulic pressure up to 30Kg/cm – optionally up to 100Kg/cm – and outfeed table with rotary cutting device for the separation of panels once laminated.
The COMPACT LINE series are compact laminators for small/medium production with panels up to 1600mm wide and EVA, polyolefin and PUR hotmelt glues according to production needs.
They basically consist of a bed with glue application rollers onto the panel or the foil. In this series, its small dimensions stand out, which make its placement, relocation, and reinstallation simple since all the elements are located within the same bedframe. Despite this, a brush cleaner and IR screens for panel cleaning and preheating are recommended.
COMPACT LINE laminators can be configured to glue PUR hotmelt glue using a silicone applicator roller and a heated steel dosing roller to apply the glue at a temperature of 70-85ºC, which is suitable for the lamination of thermoplastic foils such as PVC, PET, PP, etc. as well as paper foil. For gluing with EVA or polyolefin (APAO) hotmelt adhesives at a temperature of 180-200ºC or also PUR at 70-85ºC, it is necessary to equip the machine with steel dosing and applicator rollers, both heated.
Apart from the before mentioned features, the COMPACT LINE HG model includes a smoothing roller, which leaves the glued surface perfectly smooth and uniform to be able to laminate high gloss, transparent or low grammage foils.
The COMPACT LINE FOIL model applies the glue to the foil with a roller. Due to the fact that the glue does not come into contact with the panel, it cannot contaminate the glue tank, with the consequent full use of the adhesive. In addition, it includes a rotary cutting device for the continuous separation of panels, which allows the installation of a bedframe at the outfeed with molding tools to postform the remaining foil at the sides.
The KL series are economic lamination lines for small productions with light panels up to 1500 mm wide. The construction system of this series is characterized by its lightness and reliability.
Models are available to apply PVAc or PVAc and urea formaldehyde glue on the foil, panel or both for the lamination of thermoplastic foils such as PVC, PET, PP, etc. as well as paper foil. The KL-F model applies PVAc glue to the paper foil.
The KL-P model applies PVAc glue to the panel. The KL-FP model can apply PVAc glue to the panel and/or the foil and hardener to the panel and urea formaldehyde (UF) glue to the foil. The KL-HH model can apply PVAc glue to the panel and hardener and urea formaldehyde (UF) glue also to the panel since it includes two glue spreaders in line.
One of the best-selling machines worldwide is our EN glue spreader series. The gluing machine models depend on the glue you want to use.
The EN-PUR model only applies PUR hotmelt glue using a heated metal dosing roller and a single-sided (EN-PUR-2) or double-sided (EN-PUR-4) silicone applicator roller, while the EN-H model It can apply both PUR and EVA hotmelt adhesives by means of a heated metallic dosing and applicator roller on one side (EN-H-2) or on both sides (EN-H-4). There is also the GS model designed exclusively to apply PVAc glue on one side (GS-2) or two sides (GS-4).
To compose a gluing line, it is essential to have a glue spreader EN, an indexing table or a foil unwinder (or even both) and a pressing calender. If possible, also a brush cleaner, an infeed table with IR screens, a panel separation cutting module (foil lamination) and an outfeed table basically.
