With the Akiles ProLam Ultra XL laminator, you can work with the full range of laminating pouch thicknesses, up to 14 mil. The control panel is easy to use, featuring buttons for both hot and cold lamination, so you can run thermal pouches and pressure sensitive pouches. This means it is also a great choice with businesses that use heat-sensitive materials. Adjustable speed and heat settings allow you to set the unit to the best settings for your specific application, and two memory options let you save your most common job settings for quick, one-touch recall. A patented cooling system keeps the machine cool to-the-touch, to avoid any possibility of burns. Automatic shut-off is activated by pressing the power button until the screen says "cool". After the rollers have completed the cool-down process, it will shut off. This slow cool down is important to protect the integrity and quality of the rollers themselves.
This premium desktop pouch laminator feature 6 silicone rollers, offering a crystal-clear finished laminate. With 4 heated rollers, and 2 cooling rolls, your document is exposed to even and consistent heat and cooling throughout the entire process; an essential feature for finish quality, especially when working with photos and heavy ink covered prints. The rollers are a part of a flex-tight spring system, which ensures even pressure from edge-to-edge, ensuring even further that your output is of perfect quality.
