Installation of Laminating Films
Film Loading
Pressure sensitive film (loaded on the top mandrel)
Pressure sensitive film (loaded on the top mandrel)
1. Remove the top mandrel from the
mandrel support brackets
2. Loosen the two fastening screws on
one of the mandrel core grips, slide off
one side.
3. Slide on the film positioning it centrally
on the mandrel and re-fix the core grips.
4. Release the tension on the film by
turning the ‘friction adjustment sleeve’
5. Re-load the mandrel on to the brackets
with the film feeding from the bottom of
the mandrel, if the film is wound with the
film on the outside, or off the top of the
roll if the film is wound on the inside.
1. Lift the feed tray to the upright
position and lock securely. Following the
loading diagram on the left cabinet of
the machine, pull the film off the bottom
of the mandrel and towards the front of
the machine, going over the top of the
upper roller
(Safety guard lock)
2. Peel back the liner paper from the
film, exposing the adhesive side of the
laminate and stick release liner to take up
mandrel using double sided tape
Vinyl/Liner paper/Mount film (loaded on the bottom mandrel)
3. Drape the film over the upper roller
and stick the liner paper to the take up
mandrel using double sided tape
1. Remove the mandrel from the mandrel
support brackets
2. Loosen the two fastening screws on
the mandrel core grips, slide off one side
3. Slide on the liner paper/mount film
and position centrally to match the top
4. Re-load the mandrel into the brackets
Liner Paper (Load on the Bottom Mandrel)
Take up mandrel (Release Liner)
1. Following the loading diagram feed
the paper up over the lower roller
and stick it to the adhesive side of the
pressure sensitive film
1. The take up mandrel is held in place
with a sprung loaded bracket: to remove
push towards the spring and lift upwards
2. Using the pressure handle raise the
upper roller
3. Using a piece of stiff card or mount
board push the overlapped films into the
nip of the roller
4. Using the roller pressure handle lower
the upper roller so it clamps the material
2. Slide an empty cardboard core onto
the take up mandrel and replace

5. Press the drive button and feed
through. PLEASE NOTE When the board
is through the rollers the pressure handle
will need to be adjusted to compensate
for thickness
Feeding the Film
Alternative Method
1. Using the pressure handle raise the
upper roller
2. Place vinyl/print through rollers from
feed tray and onto back plate
3. Pull laminate over the top roller and
push through the rollers
4. Using the pressure wheel bring the
rollers down until the handle goes in
neutral mode and slight resistance is felt
5. Using the safety cutter provided slice
between the release paper and film
cutting only the release paper
6. Apply double sided tape to the release
liner take up core and attach release liner
5. Ensure that as the film is being drawn
over the rollers it is smooth. If it isnt you
can apply tension to the film mandrel by
turning the core grip adjustment sleeve
apply just enough pressure to remove
any airpockets or creases
6. Your document can now be fed into
the laminator. Place the document flat
on the feed table and push it towards the
nip of the rollers
Laminating
Single Hot
7. Press the ‘forward’ drive button. The

Mount Film
Alternative Method
1. Position the mount film centrally on
the mandrel and lift it into position on
the brackets
Media Rewind Take Up
2. Pull the mount film up and towards the
bottom roller.
3. Stick it to the exposed pressure
sensitive film as before. * Ensure the
sticky side of the mount film is facing
towards you and away from the roller
surface.
* Go through steps of feeding the film
1. To fit remove blanking plates from rear
of the machine
2. Fit motorized bracket in place of the
blanking bracket - left hand side looking
from the rear of the machine
1. Plug in the motor unit as shown
2. Fit spring loaded take up mandrel
3. Fit the other bracket in place of the
right hand blanking plate
Optional Extras
Media Brackets
Laminating Adjustments
1. 3 media brackets space evenly on cross
member
2. Place your roll of media on the brackets
and bring leading edge over the front of
the feed tray
3. Either tape leading edge to feeder
sheet OR...
Temperature
Most pressure sensitive films benefit from around 40°C of heat being applied to help elliminate ‘silvering’. If you dont get the
desired result with 40°C continue adding 5°C of heat until you get the finish required.
Speed
Adjust the speed until you get the required results
Roller Pressure
...with rollers lifted feed through the
machine and attach to the take up unit
(optional extra)
4. Lower the rollers until neutral position
and tighten until you feel resistance, you
are now ready to run the media from reel
to reel
10
Under normal operation wind the roller pressure adjustment handle until the rollers meet and the handle goes into a neutral
mode then turn gently until you feel resistance. Then just apply an extra 1/8 of a turn to ensure there is sufficient pressure.
If ‘BOW’ marks appear across the laminated document there is too much roller pressure applied and the top roller should be
lifted slightly.
