If you want to make your important documents last a long time, one of the best ways to do so is by laminating them. A good pouch laminator makes it fast and easy to process your documents, especially if you take proper care of it and follow some general guidelines. Here are three ways to get the most out of your pouch laminator:
- You should always use a carrier no matter what type of document you’re laminating. The carrier will prevent adhesive from leaking out in the machine. This can extend the life of your laminator and reduce the risk of pouch jams.
- Pay attention to the thickness of your laminating pouches. Pouch thickness is measured in mils (0.001th of an inch) and your laminator might not be able to handle all thicknesses. Using pouches your machine can handle will help you save time and get better results.
- Always turn off your laminator when you’re done using it. If a laminator is left on for too long, it can overheat which can really damage the motor. If that happens, you may need to replace the device.
It’s easy to get the most out of your pouch laminator as long as you follow the three tips listed above. Using a carrier, paying attention to pouch thickness, and turning your machine off will go a long way to making lamination hassle-free. Good luck and happy laminating!
