Frequently Asked Questions

Some people who know what they want have bought some excellent bargains on E-Bay, but we have also heard some expensive horror stories of laminators being delivered with slashed rollers and worn out motors which would need thousands spending on them to upgrade. So the old motto of ‘Buyer Beware’ needs to be kept in mind. If you can visit the machine and see it working Laaco would be happy to arrange transport and install it as well after sales training.

Manufacturers and this experience helps us pass on a wealth of information and confidence on which machines to buy.

We will visit your premises and let you know if we can repair it on site there and then. If more serious, we will give you an itemised Quote for work and recommend repair or scrapping if it is likely to be too expensive.

Yes. Even if the manufacturer no longer supports the machine, Laaco may have second hand parts in good condition taken from old machines. Using expert engineering we can also remake the engineer parts.

It is always best to let the experts do the job. It is possible to cause more damage than your repair.

I have now bought 2 laminators from Simon. His depth of knowledge and quality of stock is second to none. Very patient whilst I had to do all my tests.

Les Thompson – Managing Director, Sound Dampened Steel – Newcastle

We needed a large laminator to fulfil a new production process that we had designed. We did lots of testing with Simon before buying a refurbished Seal 600. An excellent purchase.

Phil Maine – Senior Engineering, EPIGEM Redcar
We were in the middle of a large job requiring lamination when our machine broke down in the morning. An urgent SOS to Laaco, who had an engineer with us in the afternoon, and we were laminator again later in the day. Laaco saved the day.
Brian – Managing Director, Brimark Signs – Birkenhead

Over the years our two seal laminators had been given a hammering and the rollers were badly cut. Simon explained that it would be much cheaper to replace the top rollers on both machines than to replace two £12,000 laminators. They were both done in one day with little or no down time to our busy production schedule.

Charlotte Thompson – Managing Director, Print Designs – Stafford

Simon is a goldmine of information on laminators and application. I have worked with him for many years.

Darren Marsh – Managing Director, OTW – Norwich

The 2.0m wide OMMA Laminator I bought from Simon is probably the best bit of kit I have ever bought. We bought it for mounting but found it could slit and rewind as well. I have now bought 4 machines from Simon in 15 years.

Peter Nichols – Managing Director, JKN Digital – Preston

I have used Simon for many years for the repair and service of my laminators.

Simon Twigger – Owner, Lex Media – Portsmouth

We have used Simon for over 15 years to service and repair all our cutting and laminating machines. He always does what he says he’ll do and when he says he’ll do it. Happy to recommend him anytime.

N3 – Graphics – Bristol

When we got the order to apply strengthened laminate to the back of our new brick panels we contacted Simon and visited the Demo Room for testing. The Seal 600 Laminator rapidly coated the heavy brick panels for us.

Brian Ankers – Production Manager, Bathgate Slate – Stoke

I bought a Seal 42 Plus from Simon. After a full day training with Laaco Laminates, I was turning out full size panels and making money.
