For our School Review by Bonnie

We have had one of these in our school for years and it works awesome. We had to make a policy that only the secretary loads it though after it got loaded backwards resulting in a service call.

PTO Board Member Review by Patty Salvatore

Very disappointed. The PTO purchased this for the school. Purchased in Nov 2015 and just after 90 day warranty expired, it does not work. I have placed a service call that will cost almost as much as the machine. If I had purchased from GBC directly, it would have been covered under a 1 year warranty. Mybinding.com only offers a 90 day warranty.

Principal Review by Eastland D.

We purchased the GBC HeatSeal Ultima 65 Roll Laminator. It is exactly what we needed. Working with MyBinding.com was excellent. The product arrived within a few days of ordering. They honored a discount that I received even though it didn't apply to the product. Their price was lower than any others I found even with shipping charges. I will use them again!

Welcome to MyBinding video. Let's have a look at the GBC HeatSeal Ultima 65, a 27" Roll Laminator. One of the most popular and easy to use roll laminators on the market is the Ultima 65. A clear and easy to read control panel on the front with push butoon controls makes things very simple. Printed right on the work surface are step by step instructions on laminating and refilling the laminating rolls. The Ultima 65 uses 1.5 or 3 mil laminating film. An easy to use slide wall fence that locks down in place helps you line up your edges and your margins along with your film and clamp things right down so that everything goes in nice and straight every time. The machine just takes a few minutes to warm up and an LCD ready light lets you know you're ready to go. The protective shield in the front saves fingers and a built in timer saves energy. Adjusting the rollers slower or faster in the middle of process is no problem. It can laminate projects up to 27" wide and infrared heat eliminates cold spots. The finished product comes out the back side. A great advantage of roll laminating is the continuous feed of project after project all in one setting. A built in razor blade sits just above the exit throat and makes for great easy trimming. Finish everything off by a trimmer or by hand, and you've got a great project. And that is GBC's HeatSeal Ultima 65 Roll Laminator. For more demos, reviews, and how-to's, check out MyBinding.com.

Welcome to MyBinding video. This is How to Change the Roll Film on the HeatSeal Ultima 65 Roll Laminator. First, make sure that the unit is off and the rollers are cool. Then remove the lead table. Cut the remaining top and bottom webs between the rolls and the heal rollers and make sure you don’t cut the heat rollers. That’d probably be pretty bad. Then raise the safety shield to its upright position. Pull the top piece of film down. Now grab the film from the top and the bottom and reinstall the feed table under the web. Lower the safety shield and make sure that the speed is on slow, at 3 or less. Then push reverse and guide the web out the front. Press stop after the sheets have passed through. Now lift the safety shield and remove the lead table again. Remove the bottom roll of film by sliding the shaft to the right and releasing it from the hex-shaped break hub on the left then remove the locking screws. Next, pull the shaft out of the left corner adapter, then give the shaft a quick push back to knock out the adapter. Then pull it completely out of the film roll and we’re going to do it with the other adapter. Now take your new film roll. Make sure that when in the unit, it unrolls from the bottom. Place one of the adapters into the side. Make sure that the right end is lined up with the guide holes already screwed into the shaft. Before pushing the adapter completely into the roll, make sure that the adapters line up with this shaft. To make sure that the adapters are all the way in, you can give them a tap on the floor and make sure to do this on both ends. If you don’t, you’ll have a little extra space and you might have an incorrect alignment later on. Then insert the screws into the guide holes. This machine can use 25 or 27 inch rolls. With 27 inch, you’ll have to use the outermost guide holes. Next, lower the bottom idle bar and with about 2 feet of film unrolled, push the leading edge under the bottom idle bar and then pull it up and around, as I conveniently placed my arm into the view. Then slide the idle bar back into place. Starting on the right side, reinsert the shaft of the roll film. Then we’re going to do the same process with the top roll. Undo the screws and pop the adapters out. Then make sure that your new top roll unrolls from the bottom facing the opposite end of the bottom roll, then place your adapters on like the last one. Insert the shaft so the 2 adapters line up and make sure to get the adapters in all the way. Finish it off by lining up the guide holes and screwing the screws back on. Like the bottom, unroll about 2 feet of film. Drape the film over the top roller bar and completely cover both heat rollers. You want to tuck it partially under the bottom heat roller, then slide the feed tray under the bottom film. Align the film so it lays flat on to the tray. It may be easier to put the tray partially on at first and then snap the tray back into place. From here, you shouldn’t see the end of the top roller as we partially tucked it under the heat roll. Now close the safety shield. Then slide the thread card between the feed tray and the film web lying on the tray. The card can really be anything, as long as it’s thicker than printer paper. Gently push it into the heat rollers and push run. The card will pull the two films into the machine. Push stop once the card has exited the rear of the laminator. Now keep in mind that with this method, the rollers have not have enough time to heat up, so first check your edges to make sure that you have your rolls aligned and run the lamination in heat to make sure you get all the wrinkles out. If you haven’t already, check out the Ultima 65 for your school or office. For more demos, reviews and how-to’s, go to MyBinding.com.

You are now ready to operate your Ultima 65.  Your new Ultima 65 comes preloaded with 2 demo rolls of 1.5mil film for setup and training.  Check to be sure the leading edge of the film is visible on the back of the machine.

Turn the laminator on at the main power switch located at the back of the machine.  The machine will take 10 to 15 minutes to fully warm up, as indicated by the “ready” lamp.  Make sure the safety shield is down, and the feed table and the feed table latch are in the proper position.  The machine will not operate if they are not in place.  The feed table latch is located at the underside of the feed table, at the far left.

If you are using 1mil film, you must manually press the 1mil button each time you turn on the Ultima.  Otherwise, the laminator will automatically default to the 1.5/3mil setting when the machine is turned on.

The laminator will electronically set the speed and temperature for the film you have chosen.  Presets automatically default to Speed 4 as a starting point.  Different paper stocks require different speeds for proper lamination.  You will need to refer to the speed setting guide at the upper right of the machine to select the appropriate speed for the weight of paper you are laminating.  We will cover this in more detail in our next section.

When the “ready” lamp lights, you are ready to begin laminating.  Position your material on the feed table, and press “run”.  As the rollers begin to turn, wait for the heat line to disappear.  Then push the materials into the nip point of the heat rollers.  This is where the heat rollers come together.  Gently guide your materials as the rollers pull them into the Ultima 65.  Do not reposition the items once the rollers have begun to pull them.  You can place additional items onto the feed table without stopping and starting the laminator. Press the “stop” button once all of the items have completely exited the rear of the machine.

With the cutter on either side of the laminator, hold the film straight out; and depress the cutter’s handle while sliding the cutter across the lamination film.   Remember that although the blade is covered when not in use, it is very sharp when depressed for cutting.  Always keep fingers clear of the path of the blade.  Only operate the cutter from behind the machine.  Reaching over the laminator to operate the film cutter could result in loose clothing being caught in the rollers, causing personal injury.

If the laminator is left for more than 3 hours without being used, the “standby” button will illuminate.  After an additional hour of non-use, the laminator will shut off completely, but the “power” and “standby” lamps will remain illuminated.  To start the unit from the standby mode, press the “standby” button.

GBC HeatSeal Ultima 65 Roll Laminator Review

A roll laminator is what you need if your organization needs to laminate wide-format items. One of the most popular devices available is the GBC HeatSeal Ultima 65. This is a terrific product that's easy to use and has some great features. Here's a closer look at this device....

All about the Ultima 65:

  • The Ultima 65 can laminate items that are up to 27 inches wide. Thus, it would be a great machine to use if you need to laminate posters, banners, and other wide items.

  • This machine is very easy to use. You control it via a keypad on the front of the machine. There's an LCD display so you can see which settings are available and then select them accordingly.

  • This laminator has a rather long warm-up time of 20 minutes. So you'll have to plan somewhat ahead when you need to use it. With such a long warm-up time, this might not be the best machine to use if you're in a hurry. However, when the device is warmed up, it can laminate up to 10 inches of material per minute.

  • Using this machine is very safe because it has a protective shield to prevent your hands from coming into contact with the heating element.

  • The Ultima 65's speed and temperature settings are preset which helps simplify the process. The machine has heated rollers to ensure that your items will be perfectly laminated.

  • Choosing film to use with this machine will be easy. It's compatible with Nap-Lam roll film that's 1.5 and 3 mil thick. You'll be able to trim away excess laminate because the Ultima 65 has a built-in trimmer.

  • The chances of this machine overheating are almost non-existent because it will shut off automatically when you haven't used it in a while. It also has a standby mode so that the machine will still be ready to laminate if you need to step away for a moment.

  • The Ultima 65 has a reverse function which can be used in the event of a jam. Also, if the laminating film becomes wrapped around the rollers, the reverse mode can be used to help fix things.

  • This machine will take up a fair bit of room, unfortunately. It has the following dimensions: 21" (length) x 32.5" (width) x 12.5" (depth). It also weighs over 120 pounds so you'll want to exercise caution if you ever need to move it.

In conclusion:

The GBC HeatSeal Ultima 65 is a very popular product and it's easy to see why. Apart from the lengthy warm-up time, this machine has a lot of user-friendly features. Choosing film for it will be easy, your documents will look great, and you can even purchase a service contract. Overall, if you need a roll laminator, this is definitely one to consider.

Q:
Can this unit laminate just one side?
Asked by R. Martinez 2 months ago
A:
I have seen some people figure out ways to make these machines do almost anything. However, this machine is really designed to do 2 sided lamination (encapsulation). If you were to try one sided you would most likely want to run 2 prints back to back and then trim them flush after lamination. This technique will work but often results in prints that are curled due to the surface tension on the one side of the print. For that reason it is recommended to use a higher quality laminator along with a nylon based laminating film for single sided applications.

Q:
Does this unit have a trimmer on the back to cut off the roll stock?
Asked by G. Garcia 2 months ago
A:
Yes there is a sliding blade on the back of the unit to allow you to cut the lamianted materials from the machine. However this blade isn't designed for trimming the laminated items. Most people use a pair of scissors or a rotary trimmer for that.

Answered by Mybinding.com 2 months ago
Q:
What laminating film is recommended for use with this laminator?
Asked by T. Thompson 2 months ago
A:
Most people use either a 1.5mil 25x500' roll of film or a 1.5mil 27"x500' roll of film with the ultima 65. That being said you can use virtually an 1 inch core laminating film that is either 1.5mil or 3mil with this unit. Our MyBinding premium film is slightly cheaper or if you prefer you can find the GBC Brand here.

A:
We do have a Laminating Workstation that is a perfect fit for the Ultima 65. You can find it by searching " TLAMSTAND " or at this web address ( link: http://www.mybinding.com/laminating-workstation.html)

Answered by MyBinding.com 3 months ago
Q:
Can I put a pouch through this machine instead of using a roll of lamination?
Asked by Mark P. 3 months ago
A:
Although it is in theory possible to run pouches through a hot roll laminator like this getting enough heat to transfer to the pouches may be difficult. It would also be very important to run the pouches through in a large carrier to make sure that they don't curl around the rollers of the machine causing a huge mess. Overall it is probably best to leave the pouches to a pouch laminator but if you want to try just be VERY careful.

Answered by Jeff McRitchie 3 months ago
Q:
Do i have to use GBC brand laminate with this laminator ?
Asked by Evan J. 3 months ago
A:
You do not have to use GBC brand laminate with the Ultima 65. It can use any brand of 1.5 mil or 3 mil laminate.
