DFG 27 Inch Cold Process Hand Crank Laminator Review
When you're in the market for a laminator, you'll find many big, fancy machines with all the bells and whistles to make the job easier. But what if you just want a simple, basic machine that works? For this, check out the DFG 27 Inch Cold Process Hand Crank Laminator. That's right, we said "hand crank". This is a low cost, basic cold laminator that's great for light use at home or in a small office. Here is a look at the details.
This device is perfect for desktop operation. The small and lightweight design allow it to store easily on your desk for instant access. And since it only weighs about 10 pounds, you can simply carry it with you wherever you need.
The hand crank operation provides extra portability. You won't be tied down by requiring an outlet. Imagine how much more relaxing it would be to spend an afternoon in the park laminating documents instead of being chained to your desk by a cord.
Cold lamination is safer and often easier than hot lamination. With this machine, you won't have to worry about getting burned by the outside. You won't have to wait for it to heat up or worry about what temperature to set it to. And you don't have to worry about damaging heat sensitive materials.
This laminator works well with most types of pressure sensitive cold laminating measuring up to 27 inches wide. It can accommodate several different films including: high gloss and matte studio grade overlays, UV protective overlaminates, double sided mounting adhesives, and light box transparent adhesive backings.
The semi-soft roller has a large diameter of 2-5/8 inches. It has both left and right pressure adjustable knobs. The pressure varies to the appropriate force for photographs, film materials, graphics, display graphics, and anything else you're laminating.
Because this is a basic device, it's priced just right for a tight budget. It's one of the few laminators on the market for less than 400 dollars. If you only need a basic machine, this is a great buy.
DFG guarantees the 27 Inch Cold Process Laminator with a one year warranty.
One of the biggest downsides is the manual operation. While this might not bother the occasional user, use of this machine on a daily basis will prove to be a slow and tiresome way of laminating. For an upgrade to an automatic machine, we suggest the GBC HeatSeal Ultima 65.
It only provides cold lamination. Most things can be accomplished with a cold device the same as a hot device. But for those applications where heat is required, we recommend either a machine that does both or simply getting a hot laminator, such as the MyBinding MY2700L.
The DFG 27 Inch Laminator is great for small application uses. It was designed specifically for applying inkjet printouts and other documents to adhesive film overlay. This makes it excellent for use by graphic designers, photographers, hobbyists or even the at home user wanting to preserve documents. We think this is an excellent, low cost addition to any office needing a basic cold laminator.
