The Digital 42 wide format laminator does all the finishing tasks required of a large format imaging shop including: laminating one side or two, encapsulating, mounting with cold pressure-sensitive adhesives, simultaneous mounting and laminating, and application of cold adhesives.
Very easy to use, incorporating many of the glitch-proof features developed over 40 years of making laminators for schools and commercial finishing shops. These units will laminate one item, then mount and laminate the next in one pass on mounting board up to 1/2 inch thick. No setup change is needed. In fact, you can laminate one item, then mount and laminate the next in one pass without even stopping the machine.
With a top speed of 30 FPM and a sustainable laminating speed of 10 FPM with 5-mil film, the Digital 42 laminator is much faster than the other machines made for wide format color applications. An optional release liner takeup allows the Digital 42 to apply cold laminating films, vinyls and other PSA materials needing removal of a liner. Standard features on both machines include variable speed, independent top and bottom heat control, spacious feed tray, powerful film cooling system, and swing-away heating units for cold applications and easy cleaning of the rollers.
Quality Silicone Rubber Laminating Rollers - release materials easily and maintain their flexibility for a good edge seal.
Interchangeable Laminating Rolls - Allow the laminating rolls to be replaced with the pull rolls. If the heated rubber rolls found on competitive laminators become nicked, they require a costly replacement and down time.
Supply Roll Tension - is easy to adjust by simply tightening or loosening the tension control knobs on the supply roll mandrels.
Variable Speed - allows thinner films to be run faster, and enables mounting or the use of thicker films, which require slower speeds.
Independent Temperature Controls - for top and bottom heaters allow the use of different materials on front and back of an image.
Large Feed Tray - makes it easier to handle big graphics. The pressure strip next to the nip helps keep images flat and wrinkle-free.
Swing Away Heaters - make it very easy to clean the laminating rollers and simplify the use of many cold materials.

Release liner takeup provides for the application of pressure sensitive adhesives and laminating materials with release liners.
Roll Feed Assembly - The lamination of long images or rolls of images is simplified by a roll feed process. It is difficult to keep long graphics going straight if they are fed from a table. Rolling the material up on an empty core and feeding from a tensioned supply roll with and idler bar insures the material will stay flat and straight from beginning to end.
Slitters remove side scrap from both sides of each sheet as it goes through the laminator which reduces time spent trimming.
Heavy Duty Casters allow machine to be moved out of the way when not in use.
