How to Use the GBC Ultima 65 B EZload Laminator

The Ultima 65B is a fairly easy machine to use, especially when you opt for the EZload film. It is also compatible with standard films, but some users of the older 65 model had issues accidentally loading the film backwards; the EZ load film supply eliminates that potential issue. Don't let this deter you from standard film use, though; it only takes a little training and review of the user manual accompanying your machine to learn how to properly load and thread films of many kinds.

  1. Plug the machine in and turn on the heat. Select the mil thickness of the film you are using. You will see an hourglass symbol while it warms up.
  2. Choose the speed. It is recommended to use the automatic speed option, but you can turn that off and set the speed manually if you choose.
  3. Adjust the edge guides for your project and make sure they are set within the boundaries of your film edges.
  4. Once the hourglass is replaced with a green check mark, your machine is heated and ready. Press the green button to start the rollers in forward motion. Check your film to be sure it is feeding out properly by allowing a few inches to come out. This also helps avoid film wrapping to ensure they are completely threaded.
  5. Load your project. Check the back to ensure the speed and heat settings are working well for your application and, if they are, continue loading until your project is complete. If you need to make adjustments, press the stop button on the back to pause.
  6. Allow a few inches past your project to eject, and then use the built-in trimmer to cut off the end of your project. Adding a few inches of film after your job helps to prevent rolling of the film left on the machine, making your next job setup faster.

How to Load EZload Films

Loading the EZ load film is meant to be as trouble-free as possible...hence the name "easy load". These simple steps will walk you through the process, but remember to always check your user manual for more in-depth instructions. If you have film already loaded, you will need to remove it. Do this by opening the shield and pressing the blue tabs to swing open the table. Then cut the film, being careful to avoid hitting the rollers to avoid damage. A damaged roller is very expensive to fix, so this is especially important. Hold the reverse button until it is out of the rollers. Now remove the film rolls: open the holders by pinching the ends and lifting up the top.

  1. Plug the machine in and turn on the heat. Select the mil thickness of the film you are using. You will see an hourglass symbol while it warms up.
  2. Load the EZload film by placing into the machine with the color-coded ends onto the matching sides. The film will only lock in place if the colors match, making it impossible to load backwards.
  3. For the bottom film, bring down the tabletop by pushing on the blue tabs and swing the table open.
  4. Notice how the colors have swapped for the holders. Match the colors with the roll and place it in.
  5. Now straighten your film and pull it out and over the rollers. The top film will lay over the metal bar as well.
  6. You’ll see that the adhesive will begin to melt since the rollers have been heating this whole time. That is exactly what we want because now we can drape the bottom film over top and it will stick in place.
  7. Now bring the tabletop back into a working position and bring the safety shield down.
  8. To feed the film through start the roller with the green button and take a thicker card and push it into the machine until the rollers grab the card.
  9. When it first comes out, the film is going to be very wrinkled. So keep it running until the film smooths out. Then stop the machine and you are ready for your real projects.

In the back, if you are not careful the film could wrap around the exit rollers; do not let this happen. When first feeding it through, the film could also completely miss the back rollers. So you can stop the machine with this back button. If this happens, help guide the film into where the back rollers are; they are covered by a metal cover. You may have to back the project up first and then feed it through.
