Abstract: front page image
(EN)Embodiments provide a lamination machine and lamination process for laminating a membrane to a three-dimensional (3D) target surface of an article, such as a footwear article, glove, clothing article, backpack, or other article. The lamination machine may include an inflatable former that is permeable to air. The inflatable former may have a shape that generally corresponds to a shape of the target surface. The membrane and target surface may be arranged on the former, with a heat-activated adhesive disposed between the membrane and the target surface. The lamination machine may further include a pump to pump heated compressed air into the former. The heated compressed air may inflate the former to press the membrane against the target surface and to activate the adhesive to bond the membrane to the target surface.
(FR)Des modes de réalisation de l’invention portent sur une machine de stratification et un procédé de stratification pour la stratification d’une membrane en une surface cible tridimensionnelle (3D) d’un article, tel qu’un article chaussant, un gant, un article d’habillement, un sac à dos ou un autre article. La machine de stratification peut comprendre un gabarit gonflable qui est perméable à l'air. Le gabarit gonflable peut avoir une forme qui correspond d’une façon générale à une forme de la surface cible. La membrane et la surface cible peuvent être disposées sur le gabarit, avec un adhésif thermocollant disposé entre la membrane et la surface cible. La machine de stratification peut en outre comprendre une pompe pour pomper de l’air comprimé chauffé dans le gabarit. L’air comprimé chauffé peut gonfler le gabarit pour appuyer la membrane contre la surface cible et pour activer l’adhésif pour coller la membrane à la surface cible.
