GBC to unveil new Spire Line of Wide Format Laminators at ISA



Lincolnshire, IL, March 25, 2013 – GBC (ACCO Brands) announced today that the ISA show will be the launch of Spire, a brand new line of feature-rich wide format laminators debuting at breakthrough price-points. Eight new modular-designed units will be released throughout the year in Spire I, II, or III platforms at prices never before seen in the market.

Enhanced capabilities and durable all steel construction make Spire wide format laminators a tremendous value for any finishing provider.  Available in both thermal and cold versions in widths from 44” to 64”, they promise a low cost, high productivity solution to meet the finishing needs of operators at any skill level.

The Spire line offers the application versatility and labor saving benefits of more costly finishing equipment, without the high price tag. All models are equipped with the laminating and mounting features needed to create profitable trade show graphics, backlit and rigid displays and vehicle graphics. Spire operators will benefit from:

  • Capability to mount to thicker substrates
  • Fast finishing at variable speeds of up to 30 fpm
  • Highest quality output without silvering or lines
  • Intuitive, accessible control panel for easy adjustments
  • Durable, all steel construction
  • No hassle film loading
  • Easy, custom configuration with optional add-ons

Bob Elliott, Product Manager for GBC Lamination Equipment says of the new line, “These laminators are going to redefine what operators can accomplish for a much lower investment.  Print providers can get into wide format laminating and mounting at a fraction of former costs. And the sleek, refined design of the machine looks and feels like machines that demand a much higher premium in the market.”

Visitors to ISA Booth 2315 will get to experience the:

  • Spire I 54C, a 54” entry-level cold laminating system with 1.375” mounting gap, foot pedal and speeds to 16 fpm.
