    Hey all.

    So we had a technician come in and check out our laminator, which was working okay but would get wrinkles in it on a long enough lamination. Well, he came by and made some adjustments (couldn't watch what he did unfortunately, was also training on our new HP printer the same day) and now the problem is worse. The lamination works for about 8 feet then gets severe wrinkling and bubbling on the left. I looked at Seal's website and in the manual it says the problem should be misalignment. Looking at the roller positions, I can see that they are in fact misaligned, probably by about 1/8" if I had to guess. Does anyone know an easy adjustment for this so I don't have to wait for the technician to come back out? Any advice on this would be extremely helpful, even if it's some kind of work around on the misalignment.

    If the base is level, are the rollers not parallel? Level the machine first before making any other adjustments.

    The base is level as far as I can tell. Attached is an image of what I'm talking about. The top roller is clearly skewed a little to the left.

    We had the same issue, though not as pronounced, years ago in an old shop I worked for, with a brand new Seal. It was misaligned rollers and they ended up replacing the whole machine with a new one, and upgraded it with large production kit!

    I think that is the route we'll be going with as well, but they're still looking for a replacement and in the meantime I'm having to reprint about half of everything and going a little crazy in the process. Just wondering if there's anything we can do temporarily.
