Safety Statements
TM
The ProSeal laminators have been designed with operator safety as a primary objective; however,
operators must be familiar with the controls, as well as the operation before using the unit.
The electrical and drive-system components are isolated from contact with the operator by enclosing
them within plastic end covers that are bolted on. Only qualified service technicians should remove
these protective covers after power to the machine is removed including disconnecting the power
cord.
The heated top roller can reach temperatures of 160C (320°F). For operator safety, a protective heatshield is mounted over the top roller, and attached to the top aluminum extrusion. Adequate ventilation
is guaranteed; because of this, the outside temperature of the extrusion will never exceed 45°C
(113°F).
Only qualified service technicians should remove the top extrusion in order to clean
the rollers if necessary.
Safety Features
The material inlet opening has a height that is in accordance with EN294 clause 4.5.2; the IEC1032
test finger cannot enter this opening.
The heating system is provided with an over-temperature device, which will shut off the top rollerheating element once a heating system failure occurs.
Caution
Everyone working around the laminator must avoid wearing loose fitting clothing
(ties!) or dangling jewelry, which could catch in the laminator rollers.
Technical Service hazards
Fire hazard – The laminator contains a heated roller which reaches temperatures of 160°C
(320° F). There is a danger of severe burns if the heated roller is touched during servicing.
Mechanical hazard – Failure to use caution near exposed rollers could result in physical
injury.

Theory of Operation
Section 3.
3-1.
Theory of Operation
Control Knob
The Control Knob (see figure 4) is located on the right hand side of the laminator and is operated from
the front of the machine. The Control Knob has four (4) purposes:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Turn the power on.
Turn the heat on.
Turn the rollers on.
Adjust the height of the rollers.
The Control Knob can be operated by pushing it in
approximately 1/4” (6mm) to the left. Once the
knob has disengaged from the stop, it may be
rotated forward or backward (clockwise or counterclockwise, viewed from the right hand side of the
unit).
To switch the power on, push the knob in and
rotate it slowly towards you (counter clockwise as
viewed from the right side of the unit). The top LED
will light up to indicate that the power is on.
fig. 4
Continue to rotate the knob until the desired measurement corresponds with the indicator window at
the base of the knob. Inside the window, the rotation possibilities are shown. Select the measurement
that indicates the thickness of the material you will be using with the machine. Releasing the knob so
that it moves back to the right and clicks into place will set the rollers for use. The measurements on
the knob, ¼”, 3/16”, 1/8” and 1/16” (6, 5, 3, 1.5 mm) correspond to ‘Pouch board thickness’. There is
also a fully closed stop for future film only applications.
To turn the laminator off, grasp the control knob and push to the left, rotate the knob away from you
as far as it will go (clockwise). This will shut off the machine and open the rollers to permit objects to
be removed.
Internal functionality
See figure 5.
Inside the machine, a rod is mounted
between the left- and righthand framesheets.
The knob is mounted on the rod; it allows
axial movement, but no radial movement. The
knob is provided with a pin (1), that falls in the
indents (2) of a bracket (3). The same rod is
provided with an eccentric (4) on either side
of the machine. These eccentrics push or pull
the arms (5), where the top roller is mounted
in, upward or downward. The mains switch is
mounted in such a way, that it switches the
power off once the are is in its highest
position.

Control Panel
The Control Panel (see figure 6) is located on the front right of the machine and has three LED
indicators. A diagram of the Control Panel is shown in figure 7.
1.
The top LED when lit indicates the machine is
plugged in and the power is on.
2.
The middle LED indicates if the heat is on. Heat
is required for ProSeal Pouch Boards and
ProSeal Flexible Pouches. If lit, the laminator is
in Hot Operation Mode and will heat up to its
factory setting. If not lit, the laminator is in Cold
Operation Mode.
3.
The bottom LED is the Temperature Ready
Indicator. If flashing slowly this indicates the
laminator is heating up and has not yet reached
process temperature. A steady light indicates
the unit has reached process temperature and
fig. 6
is ready for use. A rapid blinking light indicates
that the machine is too hot. This occurs when changing from Hot Mode to Cold Mode. In this case,
a steady light indicates the machine has cooled sufficiently for cold processes.
Below the LED lights are two Push Buttons.
1.
The top button controls the heating of the roller; it switches the heater on or off. Pushing this
button toggles the machine from Hot to Cold or Cold to Hot Operation. The bottom LED light when
constantly on, will indicate the appropriate temperature as been reached.
2.
The lower button reverses the direction of the motor. The motor will continue to run in reverse until
the button is released. This is used to clear jams or foreign objects, should one be drawn into the
laminator.

screw is a so-called ‘quarter-turn snap-in
screw’.
3.
Repeat this at the other side of the top
cover.
4.
Open the top cover, until it rests on the
feed-in table.
fig. 8
To close and lock the cover, proceed with the following steps:
1.
Do not close the cover yet, but rotate both screws back ¼ turn (to their original position). This is
easier when the cover is still open.
2.
Now close the cover.
3.
Press, using the screwdriver, both screws until they snap back into their locks.
Note:
When performing the Temperature Adjustment Procedure, it is convenient to close the cover without
locking the screws. This is called the ‘unlocked position’.
Note:
Please make sure, that after any procedure, requiring the top cover to be opened,
the top cover is closed and locked. For safety reasons the operator is not allowed
to have free access to the hot roller and roller nip.

fig. 17
5.
fig. 18
Remove the heater bracket on the right hand side of the machine (see figure 18), and slide the
heater wire out of the slot, that’s in the heater bracket.
Now, the heating element can be taken out of the roller.
Note:
When a heating element has to be installed into the roller, the quartz tube has to be cleaned first.
Proceed as follows:
Insert the heating element, with the end having the shortest wire, into the roller core. Make sure,
that the wire is bent straight, to smoothen the insertion.
Whilst inserting, clean the quartz tube with a lint-free cloth, lightly dampened with IPA (Isopropanol).
Do not touch the quartz tube with your fingers!
This is important, because fingerprints will burn when the heater is on, and can possibly damage the
quartz tube.
See figure 19.
Always be very careful
when using IPA! IPA is
very flammable!
The flash point of IPA is
11°C (51.8°F). The selfignition temperature is
400°C (752°F).
Once the element is placed in the roller,
reassemble all parts in the reverse order.

• Next, the heating element, including both heater brackets, has to be removed. See the
‘Heating Element’ Procedure described in Section 4-4.
• After completion of the Laminating Pressure Adjustment procedure, it is mandatory to
continue with the Nip Adjustment Procedure described in Section 5-2.
Necessary tools: 10mm open-ended spanner, small flat-head screwdriver, Allen key 2mm.
Approximate time: 15 minutes.
To adjust or set the laminating pressure, the following special devices are required:
The Pressure Display Unit (PDU).
This unit has to be plugged in a wall
socket; the two pressure sensors can be
plugged in at either side of the PDU. The
pressure (actually: force) display reads in
Kilograms. See figure 25.

Note:
The figures shown above, show the adjustment
strips on the ProSeal 25; the adjustment strips on
the ProSeal 44 are positioned under the bearing
housing, they are larger, and mounted with two
bolts.
Make sure that there is some space between the
adjustment strips and the bearing housings, see
figure 30.
At the left-hand side of the machine, the
overtemperature switch has to be turned away, to
the right. In order to do this, remove the M4 socket
screw at the top of the switch, and loosen the other
M4 socket screw a bit, using the Allen key 3mm.
See figure 31, (2).
fig. 30
To place the pressure
sensors between the
supports, it is necessary
to open the roller nip fully.
In order to do this, push and
rotate the nip adjustment
knob, situated on the righthand side of the machine,
inward, and fully clockwise.
Insert the supports, together
with the sensor, all the way
into the roller journals. The
1
sensor supports should
have their flat sides facing
each other (see fig. 31, 1),
and the holes in the sensor
should fit over the pins in the
supports.

Adjustment Procedures
To insert a sensor support
into the right-hand journal of
the bottom roller, the belt
tensioner assembly has to
be removed first (already
removed in figure 32). Use
the small screwdriver to
remove the retaining clip
from the tensioner arm pivot
axis.
See figure 32.
After disassembly of the belt
and tensioner, the supports
can be inserted (1) as
previously described.

fig. 32
Now, push and rotate the nip adjustment knob
until the pin, mounted in the knob, falls into the
first notch (relative to top) from the indent
bracket.
See figure 33.
Pressure will be applied to the pressure
sensors, and the pressure can be read on the
PDU.
To change the pressure, place the 10mm
open-ended spanner on the M6 nut, that’s
directly under the compression spring (so, the
upper jamnut).
On the left-hand side of the machine, it’s best
to remove the blue connector from the
overtemperature switch, to ease access with
the spanner. See figure 34.
Rotate clockwise to decrease the pressure,
counter-clockwise to increase the pressure
(seen from above).
fig. 33
The pressure settings for each PDU display
(so, for either side of the machine) should be
as follows:
ProSeal 25 – 35 kilograms.
ProSeal 44 – 46 kilograms.
If necessary, change these values as
described above.
After the adjustment, remove the pressure
sensors and the supports.

Adjustment Procedures
5-2.
Nip Adjustment
Note: to perform the following adjustments, it is necessary to remove both plastic side covers first.
See Section 4-3: Disassembly / Reassembly Plastic Side Covers.
Necessary tools: Allen key 4mm.
In addition, a metal adjustment sheet, having a specific thickness, is necessary.
For the ProSeal 25, the thickness of this sheet must be 0.5 mm; size: 700x250 mm.
For the ProSeal 44, the thickness of this sheet must be 1.25 mm; size: 1150x250 mm.
Approximate time: 5 minutes.
Note: the top roller must be at room temperature, before this procedure is being performed.
1.
Set the roller nip opening to its maximum position by pushing and turning the nip setting knob fully
clockwise .
2.
Next, the nip adjustment strips have to be loosened on either side of the machine (if not loosened
already in case the previous procedure has been performed). See figure 35 and 36; the detailed
adjustment strip is shown figure 37. Note that the strip must not touch the top roller bearing
housing.

Adjustment Procedures
5-3.
Temperature Adjustment
Note:
• To perform the following adjustments, it is necessary to remove the right-hand plastic side
cover first; see Section 4-3: Disassembly / Reassembly Plastic Side Covers.
• To measure the temperature of the top roller, it is necessary to have the interlocking bolts
of the top cover in the unlocked position; see Section 4-1: Opening / Closing the
Aluminium Top Cover.
Necessary tools: Infrared Temperature meter, small flat head screwdriver.
Approximate time: 30-60 minutes.
The top roller temperature should be set to 160°C, ± 4°C (320°F, ± 7.5°F).
Changing the temperature to a higher value (in case it is too low) goes faster than the other way
around, as the roller is heating up faster than it will cool down. Therefore it is necessary to open the
top cover if the roller has to cool down, and wait approx. 15 - 20 minutes to assure that the
temperature is well under the correct value.
1.
Before taking a temperature measurement,
the top cover has to be closed for at least 5
minutes. To do the measurement: open the
top cover, and quickly measure the
temperature of the top side of the top roller;
close to the middle of the machine.
See figure 40.
2.
Close the cover again.
3.
To change the temperature setting, insert
the screwdriver in the trimpot as shown in
figure 41. Rotating clockwise increases the
temperature, counter clockwise rotation will
decrease the temperature.
fig. 40
4.
A five-degree turn of the trimpot will
increase/decrease the temperature by
approximately 10°C (18°F).
5.
Repeat the previous steps if the
temperature is not correct.
After this adjustment procedure, assemble the
right-hand cover again.
fig. 41
Note:
Please do not forget to lock the top cover, as the user of the machine is not
allowed to open it.

Maintenance
Section 6.
6-1.
Maintenance
Cleaning of the Machine
The laminator may be cleaned by the operator with a lint-free cloth, lightly dampened with a mild soap
and water solution. Spray-on cleaners are not to be used. No part of the machine is to be immersed in
water or other liquids.
6-2.
Regular Cleaning of the Rollers by the Operator
The laminating rollers of the machine should be periodically cleaned of adhesive build up that might
occur during normal operation. This should be performed a few times per day, using the ProSeal
Cleaning Board.
ProSeal Cleaning Boards are specially designed to attract and capture any adhesive that may be
clinging to the rollers. They are made from materials that will not damage or cause excessive wear to
the ProSeal Laminator.
1.
Turn on the unit and set for Hot Temperature Operation. Once the machine has reached
process temperature set the Control Knob to 3/16”.
2.
Slowly insert the Cleaning Board into the inlet opening. Ensure that the board enters centered
and straight. A gentle push may be required to start the board into the machine. Hold the edges
of the board until it is engaged in the unit and the laminator begins pulling it on its own.
3.
The board will feed through the laminator and automatically exit at the rear of the unit. THE
BOARD WILL BE HOT! Allow the board to lie flat while cooling.
Note:
This is the only roller cleaning method operators are allowed to do.
6-3.
Cleaning of the Rollers by Service Technicians
Only service technicians are allowed to perform a thorough surface maintenance of the rollers.
This should be done once or twice per year.
To perform this cleaning procedure, the top cover has to be opened. See Section 4-1 ‘Opening /
Closing the Aluminum Top Cover. On the ProSeal 44, the feed-in table should be removed as well,
see Section 4-2 ‘Feed-In Table’.
The rollers should be cleaned with a lint-free cloth, lightly dampened with IPA (Isopropanol).
Always be very careful when using IPA! IPA is very flammable!
The flash point of IPA is 11°C (51.8°F). The self-ignition
temperature is 400°C (752°F). Please make sure that the top roller
is cooled down before cleaning.
6-1
February 2000
Maintenance
It’s best practice to clean the top roller first; adhesive from the top roller is likely to fall on the bottom
roller.
See figure 42: cleaning the top roller, and figure 43: cleaning the bottom roller.
