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.
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.
