    The AGL brand is one of the best and it has non crowned rollers.

    Do you happen to know if the rollers are flat or convex? I couldn't find any info on their site or the PDF.

    We have the Master (lime green). We have no other to compare to but it works great and you sure can't beat the price!

    We actually went with the Kala Mistral. Thanks for the advice/opinions/suggestions, folks!

    I had a GBC Titan that was replace by a Spire.. I'd take the Titan any day over the Spire, Maybe we got a lemon but that thing just does not work.

    I see quite a bit of time has passed since you made your decision. How has it been??

    How do you like it vs a traditional laminator?

    Vastly prefer the Kala unless something requires heat. It's faster, tracks almost perfectly, and with slitters you can trim (it's not perfect, but it's pretty close) as it's going on the take up.

    We have been looking at it as we need to add laminators this year.

    I would recommend. The price is right, they work great, little/no maintenance, small footprint.

    Going to be purchasing a new laminator soon. Have been seriously considering the kala mainly for the trim while laminating feature. When you say it's not perfect, could you elaborate? We are hoping to be able to load rolls of printed wrap, laminate and trim the excess white margins off the sides as we go. Have you tried this application, how did it work out?
