Does anyone make a machine that applys application film

Might be a daft question but other than a set of rollers, is there a machine that will apply your application film to your vinyl easier than by hand or has it got to be by hand.

I struggle with some of the vinyls I cut which are often 2000 - 4000mm length x 600mm wide and its a real pain to ensure they get mounted to application film perfectly ..... surely someone must have invented a machine to aid this process by now.

A laminator does the job admirably.

But maybe, for occasional use, an ordinary application tape dispenser would be better.

First of all, hello from finland to everyone. Few weeks ago i bought this : http://www.biedermanngmbh.com/rolllam/120-160.jpg for applying application tape, i can also use it to laminate with heat. I already got 110cm cold laminator machine which i use with my sp-300v roland to laminate, but i needed that extra width to use full size application tapes.
Sorry if my english is in rust, first time in ages i have to write it :)

Main purpose for that new 140cm laminator is for applying that application tape, i just thought that when my sp-300v becames too small, the laminator machine works in future with wider machines.

The reason for buying it was that in future, i´ll have to cut 1-3 full size rolls in a week. Applying that application tape by hand would be suicide.
