Laminating maintenance


For external cleaning: turn the machine off and unplug it. Let it cool off for twenty minutes or so. If the machine is merely dusty, a damp cloth is all that's needed. If there is something tougher than that, use a mild detergent, diluted well. DO NOT use alcohol, petroleum-based cleansers, or harsh abrasives. Be especially careful not to let anything get inside the machine: cover the input & output slots with a towel or something.

If something jams inside the machine while operating, it may be possible to clear it out without calling for service. Unplug the machine and wait twenty minutes: remove the cover (if this is a difficult matter then best leave it to the experts). If the jam is visible, and if it will come out with just gentle pressure, then it will probably be all right to remove it: but almost certainly some residue will remain on the rollers or other parts of the mechanism which will eventually bung things up.

If the lamination machine spool is empty,  please inform the Lab Manager.

Note: The first 10 feet is free.  Anything beyond 10 Ft. , $.25 is added to the price.
