Installation of Laminating Films
Pressure sensitive film (loaded on the top mandrel)
1. Position the system on its stand
correctly and place the mandrels in the
mandrel brackets.
2. Connect the foot pedal.
3. Remove the top film mandrel.
4. Load the film roll onto the mandrel (as
5. Ensure the film roll is positioned in the
centre of the system.
7. Turning the pressure handle anti-clockwise,
raise the upper roller.
8. Feed the film directly over the top laminating
roller and through to the back of the system
(as shown).
6. Lock the mandrels in place by turning the
black locking collars anti-clockwise. Repeat
this on both top mandrels on both the right
and left hand sides.

9. Pull film tight from the back and lower
the laminating roller by turning the pressure
handle clockwise.
10. Cut through just the backing paper using
the snitty (cutting tool) provided.
11. Peel the backing paper away from the film
and drape over the feed table.
12. Apply a strip of double sided tape to
the take-up cardboard core on the take-up
13. Attach the backing paper to the double
sided tape.
14. Apply tension, by turning the tension
control clockwise. If your film isn’t being
drawn through the rollers smoothly, apply
more tension.
15. Place media flat on the feed table and
feed over leader paper, towards the nip of the

18. Switch the control panel to foot pedal. It
is advisable to start the system this way and
then press the auto button if you require,
when running.
19. Place both hands on the media, ensure it is
flat with no creases. Press the foot pedal and
this will start to feed your media.
Loading Media Rolls
1. Remove the lower back mandrel from the
mandrel brackets. The front mandrel is for your
spare rolls of media.
2. Loosen and remove one of the core
adapters. Feed your media onto the mandrel.
Ensuring it is the correct way round so the
laminate will cover the print.
3. Place the core adapter back onto the
mandrel and tighten.
4. Place the loaded mandrel into the lower rear
mandrel brackets.
5. Raise the laminating roller using the
pressure handle.
6. Pull down the feed table.
7. Feed the media from the loaded back
mandrel around the bottom laminating roller
(as shown).
8. Feed the laminating film around the top
laminating roller.
9. Pull both the laminating film and media
tightly together at the back of the system.
Lower the laminating roller using the pressure
10. Cut through just the backing paper of the
laminating film with the snitty (cutting tool)
11. Attach the backing paper to the take-up
mandrel core.
12. Apply tension.
13. Unlock mandrel holders on the back
take-up mandrel and remove.
14. Place the mandrel core onto the mandrel
and place this back onto the system. Lock the
mandrel holders back in place.
15. Using the foot pedal feed the media through
and attach your laminated media to the take up
mandrel core using some tape.
16. Once attached, select ‘auto’ on the control
panel to allow the system to automatically
laminate your media.
When using auto mode, if the ‘magic eye’
sensor is blocked by material or hands the
system will stop - to override the sensor, press
the foot pedal.
Stop the system using the control panel once
the media has finished.
17. After use of the system, it is recommended
you raise the rollers, to avoid a flat spot in the
roller surface.
Laminating adjustments
Most pressure sensitive films benefit from around 40°C of heat being applied to help eliminate ‘silvering’. If you do not achieve
the desired result with 40°C, continue adding 5°C of heat until you get the finish required.
Adjust the speed until you get the required results.
Roller Pressure
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 roller should be lifted
Cleaning and maintenance of your system
The most expensive part of a laminator is usually the rollers. If these become damaged
they are costly to repair. Always ensure you look after the rollers and clean them
regularly to avoid a build up of glue (see advice below). Never hold a sharp object such
as a knife close to the rollers in case of catching the rubber as this could cause
permanent damage that will effect the result of your work.
When your laminator is cooling down, always separate the rollers using the roller
pressure control, this will ensure that your rollers do not touch when still hot as this
could leave a ‘flat spot’.
Cleaning the rollers
It is easier to remove adhesive from the rollers when they are warm. Do not attempt this
if the system is hot (above 40oC). Always use a clean cloth and a mild anti-static foam
cleaner such as Amberclens by Ambersil or similar. Do not use a heavy duty
solvent or anything abrasive.
If the film becomes jammed in the system in any way and there is a large build up of
adhesive, do not try and remove this yourself. Contact your supplier for advice.
Spare Parts
For Spare Parts please contact your supplier.
