Cyclone UV Liquid Laminator

Allows users to vary the thickness of laminate

Big Picture

H&H Digital Products has introduced the Cyclone UV Liquid Laminator for rolled and rigid media. Equipped with two UV lights, the Cyclone laminates up to 50 linear ft/min, quick-dries with the UV lamps, and allows the user to lay down a variable thickness of laminate. It is compatible with solvent, mild-solvent, UV-curable, and pigmented inksets.

The laminator accommodates two 5-gal containers of liquid laminate, allowing users to change from a gloss to matte laminate just by flipping a switch. And, reports H&H, since it's a self-contained unit, the Cyclone requires no clean-up.

Able to handle rolled as well as rigid media up to 2-in. thick, the Cyclone features a flat area to feed rigid media into the machine. Feeding and take-up reels will be offered as an option in late January, reports H&H Digital Products.

Price: 60-in. model, $56,000; 80-in. model, $72,000. The Cyclone begins shipping in February 2006 and uses H&H Cyclone matte or semi-gloss liquid laminate.
