Wide format laminating is a term referred to that describes laminating or specialist mounting machinery aimed at the wide format print markets. These machines range in size from desktop 685 mm to over 1.6 metres in width and can be found operating in all different locations from manufacturing to specialist sign companies, exhibition graphics artists and sign makers to copy shops, high street printers and commercial print companies.
These machines are ideal for application of prints to boards, pressure laminating for outdoor graphics or exhibition stands and some of the models are also suitable for the production of vehicle graphics and the latest trend for vehicle wraps. The double heated machines offer class leading flexibility as they offer all cold pressure applications as well as wide format encapsulation which is ideal for large poster prints or basic outdoor signage.
The new 2017 GMP Display Combi EXR offers a high quality, high volume, versatile laminating solution with heat assisted top roller, infinite pressure adjustment via the integrated crank, touch screen controls and a mounting ability up to 50 mm.
