An Introduction to Lamination
Dual Sided Film Laminators
The best choice and most economical for printers and copy shops who supply their customers with short run prints. This is because these types of Thermal Film laminating machines can laminate single sided, as well as encapsulate. Single side lamination is popular for business cards, leaflets and flyers. Many restaurants will need their menu protecting so it can be used many times. Encapsulation is therefore a great option for many food outlets. The Matrix Duo Laminating Machines will laminate litho and digital prints using OPP film.
Encapsulation Film Laminators
Often referred to as ‘Encap’, encapsulation using a film laminator has all the benefits that a pouch laminated print has, but is more flexible. Because the film has a much greater length than a pouch, longer items can be protected, for example long banners or posters.
Our Linea range of Encapsulation Laminating Machines are available from A3/11×17” to A0/34×44” size options. They’re ideal for laminating maps and blueprints.
Single and Double-Sided Film Laminators
Digital printing has transformed the print industry through the economy of sheet-fed printing presses. By eliminating the complexities and costs of Litho (Lithographic) printing, single print jobs are possible, without the costs of the production of plates made of metal or polyester.
The Vivid Matrix laminating machines are the best-selling SRA3/12×18 inch laminating system in Europe. It’s important to note that Litho printers, copy shops, digital printers and print finishers all use them to laminate all kinds of print, from business cards, to brochures.
