The GBC Foton 30 is a fully automatic pouch-free laminating system that automatically feeds, laminates and trims a stack of up to 30 prints at the touch of a button. By significantly reducing the number of steps in the laminating process, the Foton 30 is up to 98% faster than traditional pouch lamination solutions, saving you valuable time and allowing you to multitask with other projects.
The Foton 30 will laminate at speeds up to 29.1 inches per minute with a de-skew feature that automatically straightens pages so they remain even while being fed, giving your document a beautiful and even edge-seal that is fully encapsulated. This machine is designed to automatically feed paper weights between 65gsm - 120gsm and utilizes a manual feed and cut mode for heavier paper weights (up to 250gsm), odd shapes (stars, circles) and over-sized sheets up to 11"x17".
One of the best features about this machine is its revolutionary auto-threading lamination cartridge system, which eliminates the operator's need to re-thread new lamination rolls. Unlike traditional lamination rolls, which need to be installed individually and threaded together with threading cards, the Foton 30 film rolls are combined into an easy-to-install cartridge that comes pre-threaded. Simply open up the machine, pull out the used cartridge and slide in a new one in seconds flat. It really is that easy! Lamination cartridges are available in 3mil and 5mil gloss with standard (up to 80') and high-capacity (up to 185') lengths that will yield up to 230 letter-size documents per cartridge.
Other unique features of the Foton 30 automatic desktop laminator include mil thickness detection for optimal speed and temperature settings as well as an automatic shut-off feature that engages after 15 minutes of inactivity. This is a great built-in safety feature as well as an excellent way to preserve and extend the life of the heated rollers within the machine.
The Foton 30 is an excellent entry-level automatic laminator that would be a great addition to any office or classroom setting, especially with such an incredible price point. We highly recommend this machine to any company doing low to mid-volume lamination jobs or anyone looking to upgrade their current pouch lamination system to a fully automated solution without having to spend a fortune in equipment.
