Requirements on the installation site
For safe and flawless operation of the appliance, the installation site must comply with the following requirements:

  • When setting it up, place the appliance on a firm, flat and horizontal surface.
  • Set up the appliance so that there is at least 30 cm of free space in front of the laminator. Otherwise, the pouch will not be ejected completely from the laminator after lamination.
  • Do not operate the appliance in a hot, wet or very humid environment or close to combustible material.
  • The mains power socket must be easily accessible, so that the power cable can be easily disconnected in the event of an emergency.

Electrical connection

  • Before you connect the appliance, compare the connection data (voltage and frequency) on the data plate with that of your mains power network. This data must match in order to avoid any damage to the appliance.
  • Ensure that the power cable is undamaged and is not routed over hot surfaces and/or sharp edges.
  • Ensure that the power cable is not taut or kinked.
  • Do not let the power cable hang over edges (trip wire effect).

Handling and operation

In this chapter you will receive important information about the handling and operation of the appliance.

Suitable laminating pouches 
For hot lamination, you can use pouches with a width of up to 230 mm and a maximum thickness of 125 micron. For cold lamination you can use pouches with a maximum thickness of 200 microns. Please note that each laminating pouch may only be used once.

NOTICE

  • For hot lamination, use only laminating pouches that are expressly intended for hot lamination.
  • For cold lamination, use only laminating pouches that are expressly intended for cold lamination.
  • Take note that the laminating pouches supplied with the laminator are intended exclusively for hot lamination.

position

Pouch thickness switch 4 position Laminating pouch thickness
Hot 80 > 60 – 80
Hot 125 85 – 125
Cold 125 to 200

NOTICE
For high-gloss photos, you should select the switch position “125” as well as the appropriate pouch thickness.

Preparing for hot lamination

  • Insert the plug of the laminator into a mains power socket.
  • Switch the appliance on by pushing the On/Off switch 5 to the “ON” position. The red Power indicator light 2 lights up.
  • Set the selector switch for hot and cold lamination 6 to “HOT”.
  • Place the pouch thickness switch 4 at the corresponding pouch thickness (see also chapter Switching levels).

NOTICE
The attainment of the operating temperature is indicated by the glowing of green indicator light Ready 3. For a more uniform laminating result we recommend, especially for thinner foils (below 125 Micron), and after adjustment to a different foil thickness, to first wait an additional 2-3 minutes before beginning with lamination.

NOTICE

  • Ensure that all edges of the document have at least two millimeters of space to the edges of the laminating pouch, as shown in
  • Make certain that you use only one pouch for laminating. First flip it up, as shown in
  • For further information about the lamination process, please read the section Lamination process.

UNITED-OFFICE-ULG-350-B1-Laminator-2

Preparing for cold lamination

IMPORTANT
After hot laminating, allow the laminator to cool down completely before beginning with cold lamination. Bear in mind, the rollers inside the laminator will still be hot. This could damage the laminating pouch and the document to be laminated!

  • Insert the plug of the laminator into a mains power socket.
  • Switch the appliance on by pushing the On/Off switch 5 to the “ON” position. The red Power indicator light 2 lights up.
  • Set the selector switch for hot and cold lamination 6 to “COLD”. The green Ready indicator light 3 lights up.
  • Place the pouch thickness switch 4 at the corresponding pouch thickness (see also chapter Switching levels).
  • Place the document to be laminated into a laminating pouch of the appropriate size.

NOTICE

  • Ensure that all edges of the document have at least two millimetres of space to the edges of the laminating pouch, as shown in
  • Make certain that you use only one pouch for laminating. First flip it up, as shown in
  • For further information about the lamination process, please read the section Lamination process.

Lamination process

  • Place the pouch centrally on the small supporting surface at the pouch slot 1. If the size permits, the pouch should be placed with the closed side towards the pouch slot 1.
  • Slide the pouch slowly and straightly into the pouch slot 1.
  • When you have slid the pouch several centimetres into the slot 1 it will then be pulled in automatically. Release the laminating pouch as soon as you notice it being pulled in automatically.

IMPORTANT

  • Ensure there is at least 30 cm of open space in front of the laminator. Oth-erwise, the pouch will not be ejected completely from the laminator after lamination. This could damage the pouch.
  • The finished and laminated pouch is ejected from the pouch ejector slot 7 of the laminator.

NOTICE

  • Only after hot lamination: When the finished laminated pouch is ejected from the pouch ejector slot 7 of the laminator, it is hot and can easily change its shape. For this reason, let the laminated pouch cool for one minute before touching it.
  • To improve the lamination result, you can weigh a still hot laminated pouch down with a book, a file folder or any other heavy, flat object. This will give it a smooth and flawless surface.
  • If you do not wish to start another laminating procedure, move the On/Off switch 5 to “OFF“ and rotate the pouch thickness switch 4 to the ABS position.
  • Disconnect the plug from the mains power socket.

Anti-blocking function
At the start of the lamination process, the pouch may be pulled in at an angle or jam itself inside the appliance.

  • Turn the anti-blocking switch 4 to the position ABS. The pouch will no longer be drawn in.
  • Remove the pouch and turn the anti-blocking switch 4 back to the desired pouch thickness.
  • Re-start the lamination process.
