Ledco Educator 25″ Roll Laminator Review

Ledco Educator 25" Roll LaminatorAre you a school that is in search of a reliable and easy-to-use roll laminator? Finding one that will get the job done and can handle the daily use of a school can be tough. One laminator you should consider is the Ledco Educator 25″ roll laminator (found here). I have used this laminator on several occasions and this is my review.

Ledco is a well-known manufacturer of roll laminating machines. They have been making laminators for decades and have gotten pretty good at it. The Educator roll laminator is the culmination of years of experience and requests.

The people at Ledco explained the creation of the Educator roll laminator to me like this. Over the years, having made a variety of different laminators, they discovered that teachers and educators had specific needs and requests for their laminators. After interviewing several teachers, and taking a lot of feedback into consideration, they came up with the Educator roll laminator.

The Educator is designed with teachers, educators and schools in mind. It was designed this way from the ground up. It is designed to be easy to use, features simple film changes and produces excellent overall results. This includes a preset laminating pressure and speed.

The Educator uses laminating film up to 25″ wide and uses film with a 1″ core diameter. This is the most common size of film available and is able to laminate almost everything educators and teachers need done. It is capable of using lamination film up to 5 mils thick at a speed of 5 feet per minute. It can also be used with 1.5 and 3 mil film.

I have personally loaded film on this laminator and have used it to laminate signs, business cards and other material. It really is one of the easiest laminators I have ever used. It is extremely compact and can be placed on almost any counter or desk. It weighs 75 pounds shipped.

Because teachers don’t always need a laminator to be on, the Educator has been designed to handle being turned on and off throughout the day without suffering any ill effects.

A customer sent this review to us regarding the Educator roll laminator a few months ago:

Works nicely once it is set up properly. I suggest the following method for setting the tension: Hang a weight from the center of the plastic. Adjust the tension until the plastic just starts to unroll. Repeat this for the other roll with the same weight. It is essential that the roll tension be balanced and setting by feel is not accurate enough.

Pros: Built like it will last forever.

Cons: Fills the air with plastic fumes if you leave it on for a long time.

Overall I have to say that this is probably one of the best well-rounded roll laminators in this size, which is probably why it is such a hit with teachers.
