Banner American Products, Inc. has introduced its newly redesigned ValueLam 4500HC Laminating/Mounting capable of mounting, laminating and encapsulating output from 36-, 42-, and 44-inch inkjet printers. The introduction of this value priced laminator offers carefully designed features intended to quickly get the operator up and running.
The easy-to-use design makes the operator's job simpler with features such as large-format hot and cold lamination with dual heated rollers, release liner take up, .5-inch (12.7mm) mounting capability and an extra take up mandrel for automatically rolling up laminated prints.
In addition to being capable of running all types of cold pressure sensitive laminates and adhesives, the ValueLam 4500HC with dual heated rollers is capable of running heat-set pressure sensitive laminates, encapsulating with true thermal laminates and in "heat assist" mode (top roller heat only) delivering a perfect level of heat (120 degrees F) to increase the initial adhesion and clarity of slow curing pressure sensitive films. This feature provides the operator a quicker, more reliable output that is suitable for immediate display than if no heat was applied during lamination.
The ValueLam 4500HC laminating/mounting machine offers carefully designed features intended to facilitate a profitable finishing service. The easy-to-use design makes the operators job simpler with features such as: independently controlled top and bottom heat, electronic heat control with LED readout, variable speed, forward/reverse switch, three-inch (7.62cm) diameter silicone heated rollers, clear polycarbonate safety shield, emergency stops on both sides of machine, shrouded foot switch, disable for foot switch, take up mandrel for release liners on pressure sensitive film, and additional take up mandrel for rolling up laminated prints.
"In addition to the ValueLam 4500HC's extremely competitive price, the laminator will operate on a 120 volt electrical circuit. This can save an additional $500-$1500 in setting up a dedicated 220 volt line," said Alan Parkhill, Banner American Products.
