Graphtec GB is now the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for Portugal-based WID Innovations’ L300 Laminator and the soon to be announced C Series of laser cutting machines, both of which will be available through the company’s network of authorised resellers.

The company says the current pandemic has led to a ‘somewhat unanticipated’ demand for the L300 which, in turn, has helped revitalise Graphtec GB’s supply capability during difficult trading conditions. The L300 has ‘proved to be a preferred laminating solution for many companies producing new health and safety-related signage, graphics and markings now required, invariably on-demand, for multiple industrial, commercial and healthcare settings.’

The L300 can be used for both thermal and cold laminating applications to accommodate different production requirements and media preferences. It is capable of handling ‘a wide range’ of different substrates in thicknesses of up to 25mm and at a speed of up to 3.5m/min.

Main design features include twin silicon 130mm-diameter laminating rollers, pneumatic roller elevation and pressure/tensioning systems, a compressor and an operating mode facility to enable both automatic and manual laminating.
