Colourgen has announced the exclusive UK distribution of the new range of Kala Starter laminators. These new cold laminators provide simultaneous single sided lamination and adhesive mounting onto substrates up to 50mm thick and are available at an extremely competitive price.
This entry-level range of wide format laminators comes in 108cm, 140cm and 160cm widths and all models are capable of handling rolls up to 100m in length. The Kala Starter range supercedes the existing range of Kala Bunny laminators, by providing more capabilities and better ease of use.
Melanie Enser, Product Marketing Manager for Colourgen, says, “The new laminators are targeted at photographers, signmakers and printers looking for a first laminator or an additional machine at a low price for special requirements. The quality and reliability of the French manufactured Kala laminators makes the Kala Starter the perfect entry-level laminator”.
The Kala Starter laminators are manufactured to a very high standard and are designed to be easy to use and versatile. The pressure can be adjusted with a high level of control and visual gauge, unlike many other laminators at this price level, which often only have a pre-set lever to control pressure.
The new laminators simultaneously apply lamination film to one side and an adhesive layer to the other for easy finishing onto a broad range of substrates up to 50mm. Forward and reverse motion is controlled by hand or with a foot pedal and for safety purposes there is an emergency stop button.
“The build quality of the new laminators is very high so we do not expect them to require much by way of servicing and repair. They are very easy to use and we expect customers to be up and running and producing profitable finishing jobs very quickly indeed,” adds Enser.
The Kala Starter laminators are available immediately from Colourgen authorised resellers, with prices starting at £2,670 (ex VAT) for the 108mm version.
