Banner American Easy-Lam II 27″ Roll Laminator Review

Banner American Easy-Lam II 27" Roll LaminatorWhen a school, church or business is shopping around for a roll laminator, the Banner American Easy-Lam II 27″ roll laminator is usually at the top of the list. That is because the Easy Lam is affordable, easy to use and can be used to laminate posters, signs, banners and other material. This is my review.

I have personally used the Easy-Lam II. At first glance, it is a little intimidating. The machine itself is fairly large, measuring in at 48″ L x 40″ W x 26″ H. Don’t be too worried though. After familiarizing myself with the machine it is actually pretty easy to set up and use.

I believe the Easy-Lam II finds its stride when laminating multiple smaller documents. It can easily laminate posters, don’t get me wrong, but it can also be used to laminate multiple 8 ½” x 11″ documents at a time. This was especially beneficial for me when I was laminating large volumes of business cards.

Not only does the Easy-Lam II laminate documents, but it can also be used to mount material up to ¼” thick. This means you can easily mount photos, posters, signs and other material onto ¼” foam core board without any problems.

It warms up pretty fast. After plugging it in, it took about 15 minutes to be fully warmed up. This isn’t bad for a roll laminator. A built-in thermometer lets you know exactly what the temperature is. This is especially nice when trying to get the temperature just right for the film you are using. The thermometer, combined with an adjustable heat control, makes getting the “right” temperature very easy.

One of the most feared processes of owning a roll laminator is changing the film. Many people dread doing it. I have personally changed the film on this laminator and I have to say that it wasn’t bad. It was easy to place the film on the mandrels and wind it through the laminator. The Easy-Lam II uses a drop-down idler bar that makes it exceptionally easy to load new laminating film.

While the Easy-Lam II can use film up to 27″ wide, it can also be used with smaller rolls of film as well. It can be used with laminating film ranging from 1.5 mils up to 3 mils thick.

This laminator also features:

  • Reverse motor switch
  • Safety shield
  • Teflon coated heat shoes
  • Silicone laminating rollers
  • Heavy-duty DC motor
  • Adjustable feed table guide

The build quality on this laminator seems to be right where it should be. We had an Easy-Lam II roll laminator on our showroom floor for several years and it always worked every time we used it just like the day we unboxed it.

This laminator, however, is not a high-volume machine. It is probably best used for low to medium-volume projects. The motor, while tough, runs at a speed of 5.5’ per minute. I recommend this laminator for school use, church use, copy center use and low-volume business use.
