Research Lab

Our commitment to customer satisfaction and service is guaranteed. We have worked closely with customers to offer technical expertise and in-line solutions for new machinery, equipment restoration or simple maintenance parts. Here at IR Engraving, we have an in-house research lab equipped with a four-roll, 22″ wide calender providing 5000 PLI nip loading and 400 FPM speed. With temperature control up to 550°F and an extensive inventory of lab rolls, our lab calender exhibits virtually exact working conditions and product performance. Laboratory simulations insure proper processing, aiding in the efficient design of production equipment. Call us for your next lab trial.

The IR Engraving laboratory allows you to develop and test new patterns, new equipment applications and parameters prior to manufacturing. Our laboratory allows you to identify the operating conditions you need before you invest in a production calender. Bring in your web material and we’ll help you do the rest. In addition to developing new applications in our lab, you can utilize our impression room and extensive library to evaluate a wide variety of embossing patterns on the spot.
