Moline Laminators
Reliable and accurate dough sheet lamination in one compact machine.
The Moline portable laminator is designed to produce
a layered dough for products such as puffed pastry,
Danish, croissants, pie and pizza crusts. Lamination also
equalizes cell structure in the dough providing improved
product weight control, overall product quality and shelf
life. The unit can handle high infeed conveyor speeds and
can provide 2 - 8 laminations (4 - 16 layers).
Two reciprocating conveyors layer the dough for final
make-up. Conveyor reciprocation is activated by timing
belts driven by a motor and gear reducer. Conveyor belt
rotation is individually driven by motors and gear reducers.
These units are typically “right angle machines” because
the dough is laminated onto a discharge conveyor that runs
90° to the original direction of dough travel. The laminator
is mounted on casters for easy removal from the production
line and can be replaced with a 90° transfer conveyor when
lamination isn’t necessary.
The laminator can accommodate systems from 24” - 60”
wide. Conveyor speeds are easily adjusted through the
production system’s operator interface.

Belt Direction and
Dough Travel
Dough Travel
The direction of dough travel is shown
at right. With the discharge conveyor
running, the infeed conveyor feeds
the dough sheet onto the laminator’s
upper reciprocating conveyor which
in turn feeds the dough onto the
lower reciprocating conveyor. From
there, the dough is then folded onto
the production system’s discharge
conveyor which runs 90° to the
original direction of dough travel.

Specifications
Construction:
Stainless steel construction with precision machined
components. Conveyor belting is interlocking plastic.
Guards and Covers:
Safety interlocked guards prevent access during
operation, but provide easy access to components
for inspection, sanitation and maintenance when the
machine is shut down.
Control Functions:
Since the laminator is integrated with the production
system, conveyor speeds are easily adjusted through
the production system’s operator interface.
Proximity sensors provide adjustment for conveyor
travel (which determines the width of the laminated

dough sheet) and for where the dough sheet lands on the
discharge conveyor.
Sanitation:
Designed for easy sanitation. Meets or exceeds USDA
standards. Sealed electrical components, standoff
mounting and continuous welds are among the features
that permit direct, high pressure washdown sanitation.
Electrical Specifications:
Standard Electrical Requirements: 480 Volt / 60 Hertz /
3 Phase (other options are available).
