    I am looking for a 2nd laminator in the 50"-60" range to be used for mounting prints to mainly ACM and aluminum material. It doesn't have to be a name brand.

    Any suggestions on some of the "off brand" laminators? I would like to stay under $2K.

    Thanks
    Larry

    Why do you need electric? We use a little manual one called the OrangeA Laminator that worked great. We know brought in a flatbed application table, and hope to switch to that.

    Daige has a 55" one that's $2K new...so used would be much less. And IMO Daige is only good for mounting.

    I agree with the Daige....Not because I sell them, I sell other brands...but In my own shop, I use a daige. I tell people all the time it is the most cost efficient simple cold laminator out there. Instead of setting it up as a laminator, I hinge the laminate to the print, then I can immediately hinge it to the substrate and mount. It is also same concept for RTA lettering. The new Daige is spring loaded so you don't have to switch the nip opening in between. You can always use it table top without the footswitch to save the $ now.

    +1 for daige as a simple mount machine. Heck I will sell you my old one but you will need a top roller cover, about 100 bucks. Don't need it any more as I no longer digital print in house.
