Digital Laminating Machines
The Need for Digital Laminating Machines
Digital laminating has increased in importance since the turn of the millennia when the emergence of digital print engines really took hold in the print markets. Traditional style laminating films and roll digital laminating machines simply could not handle the output from digital print engines due to the way these machines applied the inks and toners to the media.
Huge changes in paper types and stocks also took place around the same time with coated and gloss stocks becoming more popular when used with digital print output. These two changes to the market lead the film and machine manufacturers to develop new specialist machinery, films, and techniques to enable the laminating process to still take place, creating the best digital laminating machines we've ever seen! Film such as Ultra Bond was introduced to the market and was quickly supported by the print machinery manufacturers as partner products guaranteeing adhesion to their print outputs.
During this period machinery also changed dramatically with manufacturers introducing digital laminating machines aimed at the short run markets with unique abilities such as sleeking and foiling possible on a single print if needed. Traditional foil stamping where you need to manufacture specialist die tools could easily be replaced whilst offering the exact same effect for a fraction of the cost.
