Tech Tips: Wide Format Laminators Buyers Guide
Looking to purchase a wide format laminator?
Here are our top tips of what to look
It's essential to choose a machine with large diameter rollers (120mm 130mm).
These are naturally very heavy and require minimal pressure. The heavy weight of the roller is key
to providing the ultimate finish.
Choose a machine with a solid state chasis. Machines
without a robust chasis often experience flexing or twisting. Which besides causing countless
problems and great frustration, can lead to an inferior finish and reprints.
Heat or no heat? Heat assist can be of benefit in creating a premium finish. By applying
a small amount of heat with most jobs, you instantly achieve a smoother and more professional finish.
Alternatively if you are laminating a product that doesn't respond well to heat, the heat option can be
switched off and run cold. While any air will generally bleed out of a PVC laminated print within 48 hours,
another benefit of heat assist is that it will ensure the job looks good immediately.
Do you want to laminate continuous roll to roll? Machines like the Sign Master Series
offer this option. Other features of the PRO
model include automatic roller settings, push button control panel and built in roller protection.
Choose a machine that is easy to use, logical, straight forward and user friendly.
Our final recommendation is to see the unit in action before you commit.

What our customers are saying: About the Sign Master Flatbed
We have been using
our Applicator in-house for over 12 months now. We don't know how we managed so long without one and neither
do our clients.
Check out what our customers are saying about the Sign Master Applicator Table:
"I don't know why we didn't get one sooner. The Sign Master Applicator Table has become an
important and integral part of our production, it's easy to use and saves so much time when over-laminating
rigid materials, flexible materials and even applying application tapes. We now produce a perfect result
every time" - Martin, Price Screen & Digital
"We certainly made a great
decision when we bought our Sign Master Applicator Table. Production is now super fast, it leaves no air
bubbles or defects and can easily be done with only one operator. I would recommend this machine to anyone
in the signage industry" - Darren, Read Brothers Signs
"We have recently installed
a new Sign Master Applicator Table into our Victorian factory. This recent addition has increased not
only productivity and efficiency but also reduced our wastage and re-work. We will definitely be installing
more of these in our operations throughout Australia. In a competitive market where margins are tight
anything that gives you that edge helps" Clay, Bentleigh Group
