This is the Akiles Pro-Lam Plus 160, a high quality pouch laminator!

It’s made for small lamination projects, here it is a comparison next to a 4x6 photo. Do not insert anything larger.

On the top is a guide to what temperatures to use for every pouch size—with or without a carrier.

And the temperature is completely adjustable.

To use, first place your project into the a pouch. Align for even margins. Then place that into your carrier so the creases line up. A carrier helps keep any extra adhesive from seeping onto your machine. Place the carrier into the machine and…

Now you have a high quality laminated project.

If you misplace your project, you can reverse it out and try again.

It also does cold lamination for different applications.

And you’ll see that the highest heat required by the pouches is 293 degrees fahrenheit. But it gives you some leeway with a max heat of 320.

Lastly, if your machine stops working and you don’t know why, you could have blown a fuse—this is a great safety feature and protects your machine from worse damage. Just pop the fuse out and replace it with the spare provided and you’re ready to continue laminating!

Questions & Answers

Thank you for your question. Akiles recommends that you use a carrier with the Pro-Lam Plus 160. The use a carrier in general is a good idea. IT helps protect what you are laminating and if anything were to go wrong it better to ruin a carrier than your expensive laminator.

Thank You for your question. The Pro-Lam Plus 160 Akiles Pouch Laminator takes between 5 and 10 minutes to heat up depending on the setting and the thickness of laminate you will be using. The thicker the laminate the hotter it needs to be.

Thank you for your question. We verified with Akiles that their Pro-Lam Plus Pouch Laminator only runs on 110 Volt AC. You are able to special order a 220 Volt AC version of the machine but they do not offer a machine that works on both.
