Matrix™ 7100 Overview

The Matrix 7100 Laminator was developed to meet the demanding requirements of the lateral flow test strip industry for a moderately priced system capable of supplying the membrane lamination needs of the moderate to high volume production facility. The unit was designed to allow process flexibility while at the same time optimizing product yields and throughput. Numerous options are available allowing the system to support a wide variety of material types, lamination configurations and process variables.


The Matrix 7100 allows for continuous lamination of membranes onto a plastic backing web and the cutting of the resultant laminate into discrete cards for further processing on other, downstream equipment. Numerous options provide the utmost in process flexibility at a very low overall cost.


The integral touch screen operator interface terminal provides for multiple recipe storage and simple and reliable setup and operation while simplifying process validation.
