A new 42” machine is now available with extra heavy-duty rollers. For information on the new Colonel-AG gluer for applying protein glues click here.

How to Use the Colonel Gluing Machine

Colonel GluerTo use the Colonel gluing machine, first choose the type of lay flat glue that will work best for your adhesive application needs. Remove and fill the glue tray with the water-based glue or adhesive. Once the tray is full, insert the tray back into the gluing machine. If protein glue is to be used, a water tray is filled and the thermostat is set to the desired temperature. After the adhesive application equipment is prepped, start the machine, adjust for the proper glue film and run the print, label, poster, or photo through the roll coaters, and, in only seconds, it will apply a thin film of adhesive. The operator manually positions the paper on the board stock and the glued paper/board combination is fed through the Adjutant Press for a permanent wrinkle-free bond.
