The FOLIANT Mercury 400 NG is a next generation of popular SF version. It is very compact industrial laminating machine, constructed for a heavy duty digital and offset outputs lamination. It is equipped with an integrated suction feeder Heidelberg and a high speed bump separator.  Several options are available for the Mercury machine – Foliant Foiler, non-sticky pressure roller, pallet stacker, etc.  Due to its high pressure system, format and performance the machine is suitable for all jobs – all kinds of digital printed sheets lamination and high volumes of offset printed sheets size B3+ lamination too. The machine maximum speed is up to 27 m/min., while performance is 3240 sheets per hour of B3 portrait (white paper 200 gsm).

The FOLIANT Mercury 400 NG is equipped with a rising pile back separation stream feeder and with a suction feed head Heidelberg. It is driven by an Omron servo motor and controlled by a machine central PLC. The Becker vacuum pump is used for sheets back airing. The overlaps are electronically controlled, in an „in-run“ automatic mode, from the touch screen. The accuracy is +/- 2 mm under-lap (in a constant speed). The feeder is fitted with a lifting plate and its capacity is a 54 cm pile of paper.


The FOLIANT Mercury 400 NG laminator maximum sheet size is 40 x 70 cm. The minimum sheet size is 32 x 25 cm (A4).The FOLIANT Mercury 400 NG machine is a single sided thermal industrial laminator, laminating the 115 – 600 gsm paper.
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 the scratches on sheets printed on both sides by digital print with sensitive inks).

The roll of a film is mounted on a quick-changed shaft with a film tension control breaker. The shaft capacity is up to 3000 m of the 24 - 42 microns film. The film holder unit is equipped with a trim slitter and a perforating wheel.
The laminating process is made between two laminating rollers - a highly polished chrome roller, and a lower hard rubber pressure roller. The laminating roller is heated with a dry electric system inside the roller, with a sensitive temperature sensor. The warming up time is shorter than 10 minutes. The pressure is pneumatically adjustable, with an extra independent control knob for each roller edge.

The machine is fitted with OMRON Programmable Logic Controllers, which control all machines’ functions. The used PLC system includes many automation items for an easy control of the machine and a reliable lamination. The whole machine is controlled by an interactive easy understandable icon touch screen panel – no language version is needed.


The integrated bump separator (sheeter) is equipped with a pair of fast cycling rollers. The process is controlled from the machine PLC unit. The separated sheets are delivered into a vibrating jogger (optional) or a pallet stacker (optional).

Laminating Films

The machine laminates the BOPP films (24 – 42 microns) and Nylon films (24 - 35 microns). The PET films (20 - 26 microns) can be laminated with the optional module only.

Safety Measurements

FOLIANT Mercury 400NG is certified by independent testing laboratory DGUV Test and obtained GS mark ("Tested Safety"). The measurements for operators safety are better then required by law in order to minimize injuries.



  • Jogger 400*

It is an adjustable vibrating reception unit for the laminated sheets stocking. Its capacity is 10 cm pile of sheets. Suitable for every paper weight.

  • Pallet Stacker – Integrated Automatic*

Fully automatic motorized device that unloads laminated sheets into a high pile on pallet. Its capacity is 70 cm of paper. Pile of paper is made by pneumatic side and back stops. One trolley with wheels included.

  • Foliant Foiler

Winding device that allows use of metalized film (gold, silver, red, etc.) and spot varnish film. Such films sticks to print from digital printing machine only and unused film have to be winded again.

  • Module for sheets 40 x 100 cm lamination

It is an extension of feeding table and feeding head mount for lamination of sheets with size up to 40 x 100 cm. Sheets above 70 cm cannot be unloaded to Integrated pallet stacker.

  • Micro-adjustable air shaft

Standard film holder is replaced with shaft for quick tool-less film replacement. Air shaft holds the film in place by pillow filled with pressurized air. Air gun is supplied as well.

  • Non-sticky pressure roller

 Standard pressure roller is replaced by roller with special non-sticky surface. Melted glue from film cannot stick to it at all even under heavy pressure. Cleaning of such roller is not  necessary at all. Allows lamination of sheets with cut out windows.

  • PET Films Lamination Module

It is module integrated inside the separator for the PET films processing (max. 25 microns).

  • Film Loader / Manipulator

 It is an electric lift with a film core adaptor for loading heavy rolls of film (max. capacity 125 kg). The device is not integrated with the machine.  It is only connected with the machine electric circuits.


*Important - the machine have to be operated either with Jogger or Pallet Stacker.
