What Is Roll to Roll Lamination?
Roll to roll lamination use lamination rolls to laminate. There is a top and a bottom roll. These two aspects work together to completely encapsulate the items being laminated. So no carrier is required. We simply turn on the laminator, set the temperature, and insert the item we want to laminate. We say set the temperature, because roll to roll lamination occurs with both hot and cold laminators. The end result of this process looks great.
Roll to roll lamination is perfect for laminating larger items or several smaller items at the same time. These roll laminators are also extremely fast, which makes them ideal over pouch laminators for volume and speed.
Compare Against Pouch Lamination
Compare this laminating process to using pouch laminators, which are tabletop units that use pouches of lamination film to laminate documents, literature and other material. How this machine works is that the pouches open up much like a file folder, with one edge sealed shut. It is usually the short side, but it can be the long side, too. Once we open the pouch, we can place the item we want to laminate inside. What winds up happening is a layer of lamination film ends up on both the top and the bottom of the object.
Pouch lamination and roll to roll lamination share several features in common. Both processes use heat to melt glue found on the inside of the lamination film. So they produce pretty similar results. Use either to laminate photos, cards, menus, business cards and much more.
So, is one format of lamination better than the other? No, not really. It ultimately depends on what sort of end product you want. Both formats work great and produce professional results.
