How to choose the correct laminator:

No matter which style you choose, the basic three questions apply when choosing the right model

1. How many users and how often?
– The number of users has a significant impact on choice, and, as we know, those laminating for business have different priorities to the home user.
– Using a laminator more frequently than what it was designed for will burn the motor out quicker.

2. What laminating thickness?
– Pouches (also known as laminating pockets) are the most recognised accessories.
– Measured in microns – the higher the micron the thicker the laminate.
– Ranging from 75 – 250 microns and, as a general rule, the more the document is handled the thicker the laminate should be.

Top tip:
Pouches are often depicted as ‘2x’, followed by the micron thickness.
E.g. 2×125 micron = 250 micron Pouch. (The ‘2x’ is simply to indicate each separate side of the pouch, rather than representing two individual pouches)

3. What size document are you laminating? (A3, A4 etc.)
The first consideration is content. What size laminate do you need? All laminators do not cover every format, and while other aspects are important, content size is crucial.

Moderate use – Entry-level laminators, ideal for homes, home offices and start-up business
Regular use – Mid range models perfect for average to large business
Heavy use – Premium models designed to focus on high volume for specialized business

Laminating Hints and Tips
1. Always laminate closed end first
– Feeding work in ‘open end’ first is the number one cause of laminating jams.
– Always ensure that the closed side enters the machine first to significantly reduce hold ups.

2. Laminating shapes and sizes
When laminating irregular shapes:
– Make sure that the sealed edge of the laminate enters the machine first
– Ensure content is as close as possible to that sealed edge.
– If laminating multiple irregular shapes, place them all as close together as possible near the sealed edge. A carrier should also be used for this function.

3. Laminating Maintenance
– Run a cardboard laminator cleaning sheet (without laminating pouch) through your machine regularly.
– This helps to remove adhesive blockages which can appear over time and may contribute to jams.

4. Don’t laminate an empty pouch
– Never laminate a pouch without content as it may result in malfunction or jamming.
