Introducing Four New 27″ SircleLam Roll Laminators

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

If you are a school, a business or an organization that handles, prints or deals with posters, maps, signs and other printed material, you may be interested to know that we have just added four new 27″ roll laminators to our site. These new laminators are from SircleLam, a leading manufacturer of pouch laminators, binding machines and other precision office equipment. Their products are known for being extremely affordable, yet packed with features. One of these four new roll laminators may be just what you need.

All four of these new laminators come in a 27″ laminating width and all four feature a 1″ mandrel. Both the 27″ width and 1″ mandrel are the most common specifications found in laminators today. The 27″ laminating width can be used for laminating posters, maps and more. They can even be used to laminate several smaller items at the same time. Twenty-seven inch wide film is extremely common and each of these laminators can be fitted with smaller rolls if needed.

So which of these four new SircleLam laminators is for you? Really it all boils down to the features you need, the type of film you wan to use and the budget that you are on. I would like to highlight a few features of each of these new laminators. This may help you determine which model is best for you.

SircleLam Roll Laminators

  1. SircleLam SRL-2700-HR (found here) – This laminator is the budget roll laminator. It still has a nice 27″ laminating width, but won’t handle laminating film thicker than 3 mils. This isn’t a big deal for most people as a 3 mil thickness is one of the most common used today. The SRL-2700-HR still features an LED display, is built with several key safety features and includes a 2-setting temperature adjustment.
  2. SircleLam SRL-2700-Plus (found here) – This 27″ laminator is very similar to the HR version, but includes a variable temperature dial and is slightly faster at 6 feet per minute. It also features an automatic shutoff after inactivity.
  3. SircleLam Eclipse (found here) – This laminator is 27″ wide, just like the above-mentioned laminators, but has several new features. This laminator runs at a speed of up to 10 feet per minute and can be used with laminating film up to 10 mils thick. This laminator is perfect for daily use and can be used for medium-volume laminating. It can also be used for mounting up to 3/16″ thick. The Eclipse also features a 3 position roller gap control.
  4. SircleLam QuickPrint 27 (found here) – This is the workhorse of the SircleLam lineup of 27″ laminators. It has a nice 15 feet per second laminating speed, has a 7-position roller gap control and even includes a built-in trimmer. Capable of using laminating film from 1.5 up to 10 mils thick, this is a great higher-end laminator. It is perfect for print shops, copy centers and more.

Is Your Office Getting Hot? Cool it Down With A SoleusAir Portable Air Conditioner.

Friday, May 4th, 2012

SoleusAir PE2-09R-32 Portable Air ConditionerIt’s that time of the year again and things are beginning to warm up. If you live in a nice state-of-the-art building, you probably already enjoy the luxuries of central air conditioning. If you are in an older building, you may be dreading the coming days of 90 degree plus weather or the damp humidity of the swamp cooler. One great way to upgrade your office space is by using a portable air conditioner like those made by SoleusAir (found here). These air conditioners are also great for use in a home.

SoleusAir has been manufacturing air conditioning units for years. To date, they are the #1 supplier of portable air conditioners in the United States. Not only are their air conditioners nice and cold, but they are also more energy efficient than the typical portable AC. Their new SoleusAir Green Program is an effort to continue their products’ efficiency in energy usage.

Most of the SoleusAir portable air conditioners that we carry are multi-functional machines. They usually consist of an air conditioner, a dehumidifier and a fan. Some even include built in heaters, allowing them to be used all year long. The models we carry range from 8,000 BTU up to 14,000 BTU.

One feature many of our customers like about SoleusAir air conditioners is the sleek design. Unlike many portable air conditioners that look like something from the 70s, these units feature rounded corners, neutral colors and they blend in nicely with existing office equipment. They are extremely quiet, making them great for use in the office.

These air conditioners are remarkably easy to use. The control panel is extremely easy to navigate and many of these units even include a remote control.

Here is a video demo of the SoleusAir KY 9000 being set up:

These units use do require the use of an exhaust hose that connect to a window. Luckily a window kit is included for simple installation.

Here is a video demo of an exhaust hose being connected.

These machines are remarkably affordable and remarkably simple to use. At ABC Office, we sell about seven different models. You can find our SoleusAir air conditioners here. We also offer a great selection of SoleusAir desk fans, floor fans and tower fans here.

Please don’t hesitate to speak with one of our SoleusAir air conditioner experts at 1-800-658-8788 with any questions.
