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.

SircleLam EM-40 40″ Roll Laminator Review

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

SircleLam EM-40 40" Roll LaminatorDo you need a wide-format roll laminator, but don’t have the budget to afford what’s available? There is an affordable roll laminator in the 40″ range that you may want to consider. This is the SircleLam EM-40 40″ roll laminator (found here). This is my review.

To begin with, you’ll be hard pressed to find a 40″ roll laminator within this price range. This laminator is priced around what many 27″ roll laminators cost. Normally I would think that this meant the EM-40 must be really stripped down, but not so. The EM-40 actually has a lot of very nice features.

Most scaled down roll laminators aren’t capable of handling film thicker than 3, perhaps 5 mils. The SircleLam EM-40 can handle laminating film up to 10 mils thick, which is the thickest we offer. This is really nice for people who are laminating banners, signs and other large material.

Another nice high-end feature is that the SircleLam EM-40 has a total of 4 rollers. This means that the film is given more pressure, heat is more evenly applied and the end results are clearer, cleaner and more professional.

The motor runs at a speed of 10 feet per minute. This isn’t going to win any races, but it is by no means slow. I have seen some high-end commercial laminators run at up to 25 feet per minute, but most run at about this speed. This means you should be able to laminate 600 feet of material in an hour. Few people need more capacity than this.

You will need to make sure you have a workbench, table or countertop that can support this laminator. While it isn’t as much as a car, it does weigh in at 230 pounds shipped. You will also need to make sure you have enough workspace for this laminator. It measures in at 48″W x 20″D x 16″H.

One feature I really like about the EM-40, versus other roll laminators in this class, is the fact that this laminator can be used with a standard 110 volt system. The exact power requirements are 110 Volts 60Hz, 20amps. This means you don’t have to have deal with any special power requirements.

The control interface is pretty simple and doesn’t require any touchy settings to get things right. It is pretty much straight forward.

Overall, I really like this laminator. The biggest selling point, other than it being a great overall laminator, is the price. This thing rings in at about half of what many other comparable laminators cost.
