Application: Apparatus, system and method for a lamination press (Patent ID: US20230321963A1)

The patent filed by Jabil Inc. describes a lamination apparatus, system, and method for laminating at least one laminating film to a subject. The apparatus includes an upper press with a gel plate, upper vacuum chamber, and tooling for applying the film, a lower press with a lower vacuum chamber, air bearing stage, and servo-positioned tooling, and an aligner to maintain positional balance and alignment of the subject during laminating. The aligner enables vertical flexure of the lower press and is continuously monitored by a controller, which receives data from a vision system for monitoring alignment and balance.

The lamination apparatus includes features such as an air bearing stage with four air bearings, heating elements in the lower press for enhanced laminating, and seals on the upper and lower vacuum chambers. The controller utilizes a vision system with stationary cameras and a vision robot to monitor alignment and balance by moving the robot to different positions. The aligner also includes a diaphragm flexure plate for variable planarity in the z-axis and roll rotation, along with a spherical lock to prevent rotation of the lower tooling. Additionally, the servo-positioned tooling consists of orthogonal servo motors for precise control during the laminating process, and the lower press is designed with a low vertical profile for efficiency.
