Also, called the pull rollers, these provide the power to pull the finished pouches out of the pouch laminator.
A thick, silicon-coated paper pouch which is folded on one side, and allows pouches to be fed through a laminator without fear of wrap-arounds or excessive glue-ooze onto the rollers.
An effect sometimes called “ghosting”, which is typically caused by the heat setting being too low, and the film adhesive not having enough heat to effectively activate and bond.
A flat plate or surface at the rear of a pouch laminator which allows pouches to remain flat and cool down without thermo-warping, while exiting the laminating process.
Sometimes called the Feed or Nip rollers, these are the first two rollers in a pouch laminator. They are positioned in front of the platen heat source.
Large metal plates which are heated, and provide the heat source.
A manufactured pocket of laminating film, typically sealed on one edge and activated by laminating in a platen-style pouch laminator.
Spring-hinged rollers in a pouch laminator allow for variability in thickness, and often are used for machines that do laminating and mounting on board simultaneously.
