GBC has introdued the 5031 Feeder. Customer demand in the finishing marketplace has been strong in asking for a stand alone sheet feeder that is not dedicated to a specific brand laminator. In response, GBC developed the 5031 Feeder with a control panel to allow the feeder to be used on virtually any brand laminator in the market using 6” wide up to 31” wide stock.
The ability of the 5031 Feeder to interface with various brands of laminators is the PLC and encoder driven control panel. GBC developed the 5031 Feeder for ease of use and at an extremely affordable price. “We saw the need in the marketplace for this feeder and how it could provide customers with an efficient finishing solution and offer them increases in productivity for their laminating processes”, explained Bob Elliott, Product Manager, Professional Laminating Equipment.
The 5031 Feeder is used for two-sided lamination in both hot and cold laminating applications. The new feeder can feed paper stocks from 20 # bond to 24 pt. cover stock and operate at 50 ft/min. depending on sheet length; a minimum of 11” and up to a maximum of 40” in length. The feeders’ portable design allows the user to easily move the feeder from one laminating station to another. Simply roll the 5031 up to the laminator, attach the encoder and set the parameters of the application into the control panel and begin production.
With a highly recognized GBC brand name, this independent 5031 Feeder has portability built in, ease of use and the ability to accommodate a wide variety of paper widths, lengths and thicknesses; an excellent investment for every finishing shop. Add to that, affordability and you’ve got a universal feeder that can be a valuable addition to increase production and profits.
