GBC 2064
Operation Manual
PRE-INSTALLATION
Before a 2064 Laminator can be installed, ensure the
following requirements are met:
1.
2.
3.
Are doorways and hallways wide enough for the
laminator to be moved to the installation site?
Is there ample room for the laminator?
• A work area must be established that allows for
operation in both the front and rear of the
laminator and provides space for efficient
material flow.
Is the environment appropriate for the laminator?
• The laminator requires a clean, dust and vapor
free environment to operate properly.
• Avoid locating the laminator near sources of heat
or cold. Avoid locating the laminator in the
direct path of forced, heated or cooled air.
CAUTION: Air flow can cause uneven
heating / cooling of the rollers and result in
poor output quality.
4.
Have you contacted a certified electrician to wire
the receptacle and ensure that adequate power is
being supplied, having the appropriate capacity,
over current protection and safety lockouts
available?
GBC 2064 WF Requires:
• 220V at 60Hz with 40 amps single phase.
• Nema 6-50 P 50 A 250 V Receptacle
This Machine is supplied with a Nema 6-50 male
plug.
INSTALLATION
1.
2.
3.
Shipping damage should be brought to the immediate attention of the delivering carrier.
With assistance, carefully roll the laminator into position over flat and even surfaces.
The laminator should be positioned to allow exiting film to flow freely to the floor or a work table. Accumulation of
laminate immediately behind the laminator as it exits the equipment may cause the film to wrap around the pull rollers,
resulting in a “jammed” condition.
4.
Avoid locating the laminator near sources of heat or cold. Avoid locating the laminator in the direct path of forced,
heated or cooled air.
5.
Once the laminator has been properly positioned, lock the castors in place. Locking the castors prevent the machine
from rolling during set up, operation or servicing.
6.
Connect the attachment plug provided with the laminator to a suitably grounded outlet. Avoid connecting other
equipment to the same branch circuit to which the laminator is connected, as this may result in nuisance tripping of
circuit breakers or blowing fuses.
Note:
Machine must be leveled to ensure best performance. Level the machine by lowering both the main and pull rolls.
Lay a level on top of the main and pull rolls. Then, check level from main roll to pull roll on right and left side of the
roll. Finally, check by placing the level diagonally across lower main to lower pull rolls.

• One or both rolls of film are allowed to run
completely off its core.
The adhesive side of the film is on the inner side of
the web (Fig. 17A & B). The shiny side of clear film
must contact the heat rollers. The dull side of the
film contains the adhesive. Use extreme caution
when loading delustered (matte) film as both sides
appear dull.
Always change the top and bottom supply rolls at the
same time. Near the end of each roll of GBC
laminating film is a label stating “Warning-End of
Roll”. The appearance of this label on either the top
or bottom roll requires that new rolls of film be
installed as soon as the item presently being
laminated completely exits the rear of the laminator.
Do not introduce any additional items into the
laminator when the warning label is visible.
To load a roll of film: (Fig. 18)
1. Pull the swing out shaft clevis pin up.
2. Swing shaft outward.
3. Slide the roll of film onto the film shaft ensuring
Adhesive side is out.
4. Push the film shaft back into the film shaft

THE ART OF LAMINATION
BASIC RULES
•
Do not attempt to laminate abrasive or metal Objects such as staples, paper clips and glitter, as they may damage the
heat or pull rollers.
•
Do not force items into the nip area of the heat rollers. An item that is not easily drawn into the laminator by the heat
rollers is probably too thick to laminate.
•
Wrinkles may result if an attempt is made to reposition an item once it has been grasped by the heat rollers.
•
Do not stop the laminator before an item has completely exited the pull rollers. Even a momentary stop will cause a
mark (heat line) on the laminated item.
Good, consistent lamination is a result of combining proper heat, tension and dwell time. Dwell time is controlled by the speed of
the motor and is defined as the amount of time the material to be laminated is compressed between the heat rollers.
As a general rule, thicker items and film need to run at slower speeds because they extract more heat from the rollers at a quicker
rate. Setting the speed control at slower settings gives the laminator longer dwell time thus allowing proper lamination of thick
items. Thinner items, such as standard copier paper (20 lb. bond) and tissue paper, extract less heat from the rollers and can be
run at faster speeds.
FILM TENSION
Proper film tension, known as brake tension, is the minimum amount required to eliminate wrinkles in the finished item. The film
should be taut. A properly adjusted roll of film should not require excessive force to turn by hand.
Film tension should be enough to introduce a minor amount of drag as the film unrolls. Insufficient tension causes wrinkles,
while too much tension causes stretching (necking). Uneven tension between the top and bottom rolls create curl. Too much
upper tension creates upward curl while too much bottom tension causes downward curl.
Adjustment of the pull roller clutch may be necessary if after adjusting unwind and rewind brake tensions do not improve your
output quality.

Figure 39
The “READY” indicator may extinguish if the speed
is set too fast for the material being laminated. Either
lower the speed setting or press STOP ( ) and wait
until the “READY” indicator illuminates. Operation
of the laminator for more than thirty minutes at a
time may necessitate a lower speed setting. It is
recommended that, during periods of long runs, the
items being laminated are alternated between thick
and thin. Do not combine thick and thin items at the
same time, as this will result in
a poor edge seal around the thinner material. If you
are unsure that the laminator is set at the proper
speed for the item to be laminated, run a test piece
(scrap) of the same or similar material through the
Laminator. This procedure is recommended because
rotating the heat roller prior to lamination will more
evenly distribute the heat.
Make speed adjustments if necessary.

MAINTENANCE
Caring For The GBC 2064WF Laminator
GBC offers Cleaning kits as well as Extended Maintenance Agreements.
Contact your local GBC Service Representative or your dealer/distributor for additional information. The only maintenance required by the
operator is to periodically clean the heat rollers and schedule semi annual maintenance checks. The following procedure will help keep the heat
rollers free of adhesive that has been deposited along the edge of the laminating film. Proper alignment of the rolls of film reduces the amount of
“squeeze out”.
WARNING:
Do not attempt to laminate adhesives marked “Flammable”.
