SEAL to demo finishing products at FESPA 2012

Seal Roll To Roll

Mounting and laminating specialist Seal will be at Fespa 2012 in Barcelona from 21-24 February to show off its top-quality image finishing products at
stand M80 in hall 3. The company’s exhibit at the trade fair will focus in particular on the new functions of its Seal 62 Base, Seal 62 Pro and Seal 62 S roller laminators.

Seal 62 Base is the basic laminator model, and starting now, it is available with the standard feature of a trough for the easier handling of large-size lamination materials. Feed-in is made simpler because all three models (Seal 62 Base, Seal 62 Pro and Seal 62 S) now come with this fold-down extension for easier material handling.

An additional hand wheel at the back of the Seal 62 Pro and Seal 62 S roller laminators now makes it possible to adjust the nip height and fine tune the pressure while standing at the back of the laminator inspecting the output. The Seal 62 S has another feature that makes materials even easier to handle - its swing-out auto-grip take-up system.

For improved release-liner take-up, the manufacturer now provides auto-grip take-up stations for the Seal 62 Base model to replace the rewind tubes as standard. A roll-to-roll kit is available for the Seal 62 Base as an option (standard on the Seal 62 S and Pro) to fully automate the lamination process.  With this option it is possible to take the roll of printed media from the printer, laminate it and have it rolled back up all in one pass.

Marc Hansing, Technical Services Manager at Seal, comments, “Our trade fair stand will be devoted to showcasing new concepts and developments in the lamination machine industry. Quality and user-friendliness are our prime focus – after all, the expert application of protective laminating films should be as simple as possible with our machines.”

In Barcelona, Seal will also be displaying the Seal 54 EL roller laminator, intended as a cost-effective means to get started in the lamination business. It is fitted with all basic functions for the professional application of double-sided adhesive to boards and high-quality laminates, both for aesthetic and protective purposes. The machine features sophisticated technology, and its twin silicon rollers ensure that laminates are applied with an outstanding degree of evenness. This high-performance model can easily handle pressure-sensitive materials of up to 25 millimetres in thickness. Its maximum material width is 1400 millimetres, and it can work at a speed of up to 4 metres per minute.

Seal markets an extensive range of protective, mounting and adhesive films. When used together with the seal roller laminator, the wide selection of materials ensures that lamination and coating processes always produce excellent results. At the Fespa trade fair, visitors can not only admire the Seal 62 Base and the Seal 54 EL models, but also the advanced Seal 62 S and Seal 600 MD models.
