GFP 355TH 55" Wide Format Cold Laminator with Top-Heat
Cold laminator with top-heat assist for better/faster lamination, mounting, and coating
Easy set-up and low maintenance with a top heat boost
55" laminating width and 20 feet per minute laminating speed
GFP 663TH 63" Production Wide Format Cold Laminator with Top-Heat
Introducing the 663TH, GFP's most advanced laminator with "Smart Finishing Technology" for the demanding wide format printing professional. This industrial wide format laminating machine is 63 inches wide and operates at a speed up to 20 fpm. It can handle pressure-sensitive laminates with a top-heat assist that adds up to 140° F of heat for faster/better over-lamination, mounting, and board pre-coating.
This powerful, intuitive system will help increase efficiency, accuracy, and reliability for your operations. Now operators can program, monitor, and display all machine functions and view operator tutorials through a powerful digital touchscreen Microcontroller. As a result, the GFP 663TH expands operator expertise, productivity, and accuracy providing consistent quality output and fewer production errors.
Microprocessor technology has expanded capabilities for Wide Format Finishing Professionals by increasing the efficiency, accuracy, and reliability of finishing equipment. But that's not all. Now operators can program, monitor, and display all machine functions and view operator tutorials through a powerful digital touchscreen Microcontroller. As a result, the GFP 663TH expands operator expertise, productivity, and accuracy providing consistent quality output and fewer production errors
Along with its rugged design and many built-in labor-saving features, the 663TH's electric servo motor and positioning encoder delivers precise control of roller gap position and nip pressure. A host of production class features like integrate rear rewind, inline slitting, and swingout shafts provide the reliable performance the finishing professionals need to ensure the highest quality output and maximum productivity.
10" tablet-style LCD Display for user-friendly access to all functions
Digital microcontroller system
Color graphic operational displays
Electronic roller gap/pressure control
Swing-out unwind and rewind shafts
Inline rotary slitters - Trim the sides of output during lamination to save time and increase productivity.
Top heat allows the pressure-sensitive adhesive to “wet-out“ so it adheres better (this liquefies the adhesive to stick better/faster). A great feature for over-lamination, mounting, board pre-coating, and more.
Integrated rear rewind
Operator warning alerts
Onboard operator help tutorials
Home screen - Displays machine status and links operator to operational screens for quick, efficient access to system setup and adjustments
Service displays - Allow fine-tuning adjustments and calibrations to operate parameters to increase efficiency and reduce waste
Operational displays - Provide instant access for setting and adjusting the operating parameters of each machine function for accuracy, ease, and speed
Help tutorials - Visual guides that improve comprehension and retention enhancing employee productivity, proficiency, and confidence
Digital roller pressure display - Provides easy reference and adjustment for fast, repeatable roller pressure to ensure flat, quality output
Electric servo motor and positioning encoder - Deliver precise control of roller gap position and nip pressure
Integrated rear rewind - Motorized for longer, uninterrupted roll-to-roll operation
Three Swing-Out Shafts - Save time loading and unloading rolls for faster setup and change-overs
Roll label printer - Generates pressure-sensitive label with film description and remaining footage for labeling partial film rolls
Film tension sensor - An adjustable alarm alerts operator to excess web tension ensuring flat, error-free output.
