If you need a high-speed laminator to handle large volumes of wide-format graphics, have a look at GBC's new 8544SS Professional Single-Sided Finishing System. The 8544SS accommodates sheet sizes from 11 x 17 in. to 44 x 44 in. (279 x 432 mm to 1118 x 1118 mm) and features touchscreen control and pneumatically controlled nip pressure. It comes standard with a tensioning system that automatically detects changes in tension and adjusts through the full length of a 9000-ft (2745-m) roll of film. An adjustable timing mechanism helps ensure consistent sheet registration, and enclosed-loop water-heated chrome roller helps stabilize and maintain temperature, and an adjustable bow roller helps eliminate wrinkles in film before lamination. The 8544SS also features a separator with rotating wheel for accurate sheet perforation and snap. GBC, 712 W. Winthrop Ave., Addison, IL 60101, 800-772-9281, Web: www.gbc.com.
