My New function for laminators, what do you think?

This may have been done already.

But for my am currently enjoying a relaxing Friday afternoon watching our mounters mate turn out 20,000 labels instead of weeding them manually..

Wow! How smoothly has it gone? Have you had many labels lift?

Re: New function for laminators

Not one label so far.
Only did a 5m test to be fair today. Going to leave a 50m roll printing through the night and giving it a bash at the start of the week.
I’ll post up a video of the full set-up all going well.

But all going well we are going to be done and dusted with these labels in 15 minutes (WOW).

Re: New function for laminators

Great idea, weeded over five thousand laminated labels today, wish I’d seen this post earlier. Saw a weeding machine a while back, very similar in principal to a laminator.

Hi Kev,

Yea that’s where I got the idea from pretty much. Just popped into my head at 11 at night as these ideas do. Bit of tinkering around to make it work. Had to use a pole from one of the vinyl racks to stop it from sticking to itself. I’ll get a video of it in action at start of the week and share it.

I’ll be having a go at this over the break Chris, could be a massive time saver. Thanks for posting this, I’m always getting ragged for being some kind of mad scientist because I try different ideas out. Not all of them work but when they do it’s a great feeling

Genius, :praiseyou: will be using this idea several times in the new year with our annual prints for a couple of customers. I have resorted to providing unweeded labels in the past because of the cost of manual weeding but this will make life so much easier.

Might take a bit of tweaking. Will get a video tomorrow. Labels are on the machine this now. Should be done by 9am (rolls eyes)

Re: My New function for laminators, what do you think?

There we go gentleman.

We changed the set-up a little to get rid of the pole we had to put in.
Worked well. 25 minutes to get through a 50m roll.
13,000 labels on it, admittedly we did lose maybe 50-60 ish. 90% of that is down to our cutting strip I think. Maybe could of done with a bit more tension for the labels going into the roll at the back would of saved a few.

All in all though a success on my side I think. We will do it again. Can’t upload a video here, but there is one on our Instagram story (creativesignandprint)
