Using a Roll Laminator – What You Need to Know
No matter what type of business you may have as long as it is dealing with a lot of documents for presentation every day, then it is always certain that your company needs to have those laminating machines come in handy from time to time if not every day. However, a lot of those staff working for these companies just have no idea on how these laminating machines actually works. Using these laminating machines with their corresponding laminating films on the side is always an easy thing to do given the right kind of materials present before proceeding with the work of lamination.
A step-by-step guide is important in order to have that roll laminator come doing its function at its top peak with the best quality of products ever being produced by it come out of its process. It is important first and foremost to locate where the power for the machine is and it is usually located at the back of the machine. Aside from that, it is important to make sure that the whole setup is plugged into a convenient outlet at the wall. Then the feed tray and the heat shield have to be in their proper places before starting to laminate.
The temperature for heating depends on the thickness of the laminating film that is used. The thicker the film the hotter it should be. Speed of the roll laminator will also be adjusted according to the type of document that is to be laminated. Heavy stocks need slower speed and lighter ones work with faster speed. After the ready indicator light is lit, which is roughly 10 minutes after warm up, you are now ready to set up the laminate on the laminating machine. With the document in between the laminating film and inserting the closed side first, feed the laminate to the machine and it comes out of the back. A film cutter may be a part of the laminating machine and can be set according to your needs. Let the laminated document cool off first before having it ready for presentation. Just turn off the machine when not to be used anymore.
