Wide Format Laminators

Wide Format Laminators Overview


Mount and laminate simultaneously with incredible accuracy and speed with the award-winning Easymount Air EM-A1600SH wide format laminating system.  Pneumatic air pressure controls the laminating rollers, allowing the roller to adjust to the exact thickness and pressure required, delivering faster production times, more accurate board feeding, protection for soft materials like Corex, Foamex or fluted boards and eliminating the need for mechanical wedges.

The Easymount Air EM-A1600SH wide format laminating system is easy to operate. New swing out arms make loading laminate and film easier. Whether loading the front mandrel with vinyl or the rear mandrel with laminate, both swing out, making it easier to load.   For controlled operation, a variable speed control and a foot pedal are included, as well as a handy reverse mode. An easy to use control panel includes multiple language support.

The Easymount Air EM-A1600SH is solidly built from heavy duty steel and is the ideal solution for sign makers, wide format printers and vehicle graphics companies.  With a maximum width of 63-inches and featuring a release liner take-up, the Easymount Air EM-1600SH can be outfitted with an  optional rear take-up unit and  an optional silent compressor.


 The Easymount Air EM-1600SH wide format laminating system has a laminating speed  of up to  10m/33ft per minute and able to mount to boards up to  1 3⁄16 inches in thickness.  The EM-A1600SH has a warm-up time of ten minutes, and has a laminating temperature range of 0-60ºC/32-140ºF. The roller diameter is 130mm/5 inches, and the pressure adjustment is pneumatic.   The film core is 77mm/3 inches. The Easymount Air EM-A1600SH wide format laminating system features a multilingual digital control panel, in English, Spanish, Italian, French, and German languages.

Easymount Air uses a patented pneumatic air technology that allows the rollers to float down, protecting soft materials such as Corex, Foamex and fluted boards from being inadvertently crushed. The large 130mm/5-inch adjustable cambered rollers evenly distribute pneumatic pressure across the full width of the system. When the rollers achieve the correct board thickness, the roller can be locked in place to keep the required gap, making board feeding more accurate and eliminating the need for mechanical wedges.

The Easymount Air  EM-A1600SH can also mount prints and vinyl to many different materials, including aluminum substrate, fluted boards such as Corex, foam boards and even glass. The system can also be used to apply tapes and adhesive film.

Optional accessories for the Easymount Air EM-A1600SH wide format laminating system include a rear take up unit, silent compressor, additional mandrels and a flow table.
