I didn’t know a laminator may need to be calibrated to get it to run straight. i just thought i was terrible at laminating! 🤣 will calibrating help with creases, bubbles and long strands of hair getting stuck under the vinyl too? 😬😳🤣
Be careful Leslie you’re not setting the rollers to tight. They should lowered until they just grip the material and don’t slip. Been too tight will cause a pile of problems on it’s own never mind the hair. Think of that as leaving your DNA for future generations.
We used to have terrible problems getting our Easymount EM-S1600H to run straight. It turned out the problem was staring us right in the face. Basically what was wrong was the the stand and the laminator weren’t sitting square. The laminator which was a separate unit was pushed back slightly on one side. This meant when the roll was fitted onto the mandrel on the stand the material wasn’t been fed straight into the machine. We squared them up and used VHB tape to keep them in place. This instantly fixed 99% of our laminating problems and is possibly something you should have a look at.
We used to use Simon from Laaco when we had our Seal laminator. Also had Paper Graphics once or twice. Not sure if they would come out to Europe though. Do you have a local supplier who might be able to help?
