Preparing to Clean Your Laminator
If you’re like most people, when the time comes to clean your laminator, you quickly realize that it’s a bit of a pain. Laminators can be messy and complicated to clean, but with a little preparation ahead of time, it’s easy to keep your machine in top shape. Follow these simple tips to clean your pouch laminator safely and effectively:
1) Start by unplugging the laminator.
2) Remove the laminated material from the pouch.
3) Clean the laminator interior using an approved cleaner.
4) Dry the machine completely before plugging it back in.
Opening the Laminating Pouch
If your pouch laminator has been used recently and there is dust or any other particulate present on the film, you will need to open the pouch and clean it before use. To do this, first remove the empty cassette by pulling out both ends. Then turn the laminator so that the film loading spool is oriented towards you. Firmly grasp one end of the film loading spool with your hand, and twist it counterclockwise until it becomes free from the hub. Hold onto the free end of the film loading spool as you carefully pull it out of the machine. Clean all parts of the machine using a vacuum cleaner and a damp cloth. Once everything is clean, re-install the cassette, load up a fresh sheet of film, and begin laminating!
Removing the Sticky Laminate From the Press
Most pouch laminators come with a cleaning kit that includes a solvent and a cloth. After you remove the laminates from the press, you will need to clean the machine. To do this, remove the cover andClean all of the moving parts with the solvent. Be sure to dry the machine completely before re-installing the cover.
Thoroughly Cleaning the Tubes and Belts
If you use a pouch laminator, it’s important to keep it clean. Not only will this ensure that your pouches come out perfect every time, but it will also help to prevent smudging and other types of marking. To clean the tubes and belts, first turn off the machine and unplug it. Next, remove the heat-sensitive adhesive strip from the tube levelling area and main belt. Wipe down both surfaces with a mild detergent and warm water. Let the machine dry before using it again.
Disinfecting the Lamination Machine and Replacement Parts
To clean the laminator and disinfect the machine and its replacement parts, first turn off the power to the machine. Remove any paper that was loaded into the laminator before cleaning.
