Robostak Laminator Gen. IV – New Patent Application

Robostak IV

The new R&D Line in our Italian premises

Multi-stage Membrane-less Laminator – Teknisolar developed a new design of the high vacuum, membrane free multi-stage laminator, now called “Robostak Generation IV”. A first patent application had already been filed on 10/12/2014 . A second patent application has now been filed on December 11th, 2015 (Application N. 102015000082473, CCIAA: Milan, Italy). The new laminator will improve the benefits vs our previous design and even more vs traditional membrane laminators in terms of:

  • Substantial technical and economic benefits
  • Higher quality panels
  • Higher durability of the panels to harsh weather conditions
  • Expected panels life of over 40 years

More precisely, the technical and economic benefits of Robostak IV vs traditional membrane laminators are:
