It will have two laminating stations, each with metal laminating roller and rubber nip roller to give the same result on each side of the sheet, ideal for Photobook applications. For increased flexibility it can be supplied for standard B2 size or with feeder lengths of 880mm, 950mm or 1050mm.

Europa EL has a standard laminating head and a further station for embossing or, potentially, higher pressure laminating, to allow either conventional single-sided lamination or laminating and embossing in a single pass.

Triton B1 laminator.  Launched in 2011, this is however its first showing in the UK. Triton is available with either portrait or landscape feed and either as a Single-sided or Double-sided laminator.

Robin French, Managing Director said, ‘Our stand is adjacent to the ‘World of Wide Format’ so we decided to increase our stand space to include our new product launch of the 165cm Wide Format Cutter.  We are hoping it will attract strong interest from that area. The cutter has been designed for horizontal and vertical cutting of wide format sheets, encapsulated, laminated or un-laminated. We will be demonstrating it in-line with the Atlas MF165 laminator and will be configured to cut encapsulated prints.’
