Mimaki LA-160W Laminator

The Mimaki LA-160W laminator is a game changer for printing professionals looking to protect their printed works of art from prolonged contact with elevated levels of abrasion, moisture, contaminants, or chemicals that may diminish their longevity. This laminator is equipped with a warming function available to heat up to a maximum of 60 degrees Celsius/140 degrees Fahrenheit to help reduce silvering caused by the unevenness of a print surface as a result of tiny air bubbles that are caught between the print and the overlaminate film. This undesirable effect is most often noticeable around the dark areas of a print.

Some of the best features of this particular model are its user-friendliness and safety design. Other important benefits include fast throughput speeds, easy access to pressure handle and foot pedal, and the take-up reel makes it easy for one person to operate the entire process. It also features safety functions like an emergency stop, providing a secure working environment to protect operators from rolling-in accidents.
