Barricades and Signs Limited has been delivering exceptional traffic control products and services through its multiple locations in Alberta. The highly respected, family-owned company has strong values and a vision to become North America’s most respected traffic control products company. So, when looking to take their firm to the next level, they knew they had to invest in equipment that was built to last and could keep up with their growing client base. Barricades and Signs needed a laminator that could keep up with their new wide-format UV printer and deliver the reliability they needed with all the right features and capabilities. After comparing several brands and models, the Seal 62 Pro S Laminator from GBC Canada was chosen. “The Seal 62 Pro S Laminator offered a ton of features, impressive speed and capacity – and all at an unbeatable price,” said Jan Van Bruggen, CEO of Barricades and Signs. “Another important consideration in the buying process was serviceability. We know the value of local support – and GBC Canada came through. From set-up and installation, to training and support, they’ve been heavily involved in supporting our success. In fact, GBC Canada has demonstrated the mantra written on the walls of our offices: “Committed to Service. Trusted to Deliver.”
The Seal 62 Pro S from GBC Canada is a 61” top-heat wide-format roll laminator ideal for novice and experienced digital finishers who require a high performance, high quality laminator, but have no need for thermal encapsulation. It offers similar technology to that of the Seal 62 Pro D Laminator, less the bottom heated roller and flip-up pull roller. With fully adjustable temperature, speed and pressure settings, it can accommodate a variety of substrates while generating high process speeds. Its ergonomic touchpad control panel is strategically placed on a swinging arm to allow operation from both the front and rear of the unit. Lightweight drop-in supply shafts with auto-grip facilitate easy loading of materials in tight spaces, while high-release silicon rollers allow for easy cleaning. Its exclusive ‘stay-put’ swing-up feed table keeps the table up, making for easier media handling and set-up. The laminator also includes manual nip adjustment control up to 1-1/2” for processing a wide variety of substrates, a foot pedal for hands-free operation, and a comprehensive safety system with ‘self-checking eyes’ and emergency stops. In total, these features maximize the performance and versatility of the Seal 62 Pro S without compromising the user friendly nature of the machine, said the OEM.
