Open Question

I have an Ibico EL-12 II laminating machine. The front of the machine will not feed the doc in.   I tried to use the back of the machine to see if you feed the sheets in that way and the rollers are working b/c its actually the side the docs come out?  Can you assist?

Laminator wont feed


If the motor is running, then the cog that drives the roller system may have failed. Laminators built today are made with plastic (nylon) roller drive cogwheels that crack. Especially if the fed media is too thick. Put the machine into run mode and feed a single piece of card (a playing card will do) into the feed slot. Lightly hold the card and see if you can feel the card moving. To check if the motor is in reverse, feed the card into the output slot.

If you are handy with a screwdriver, then with it disconnected, remove the lid (about six screws underneath) and check the rollers for old lamination sheets that could be stuck to one of them. This would limit the feed gap between the rollers, preventing you from putting your media in.

Can you tell me how to thread a Graphic III laminator?


5-2 THREADING the LAMINATOR
1. Remove the supply roll mandrels and the feed tray. The supply roll mandrels are now ready to accept
loading of the film rolls, wound with the polyester (shiny) side out. When viewed from the front of the
machine, the core grippers on both the top and bottom supply roll mandrels should point toward the
heat shoes (and toward each other). The tension control knobs should be positioned on the right. Notice the
knobs are labeled "Top Right" and "Bottom Right". If you have rolls of film on which the material is wound
in the opposite direction (adhesive or dull side out) exchange the top and bottom supply roll mandrels so
the core gripper positions are reversed.
2. Slide a roll of film onto the top supply roll mandrel, turning the roll slightly to slide the gripper inside the
core. Center the roll. Make sure the dull side of the film is facing up and the shiny side is facing the
heat shoes during the threading. Scored marks on the supply roll mandrels provide a guide for proper
alignment of the two rolls of film to each other.
NOTE: The pointed metal pieces protruding from the body of the supply roll mandrels grip the cardboard core of the film supply roll to prevent slippage. When placing a roll of film on the mandrel, twist the film supply roll to
accommodate easier film loading.
3. With the roll aligned with the scored line on the right side of the mandrel, place it in the top bracket.
Place the left side of the shaft in its slot first then place the right side of the shaft in its slot, turning it as
needed. FOLLOW THE RECOMMENDED LOADING PROCEDURES CAREFULLY WHEN THREADING
FILM IN THE LAMINATOR. ACCURATE ALIGNMENT OF ROLLS WILL MINIMIZE WASTE AND HELP KEEP
THE LAMINATOR CLEAN.
4. While the machine is still cold, review the threading diagram. With the bottom roll of film centered on
the mandrel and the shiny side facing down, run the film under the bottom idler bar and pull towards
you.
5. Load and thread the top roll of film in the same manner as the bottom roll. Refer to the threading diagram. The
film should run under the silver stabilizer bar and over the front of the top heat shoe. Remember, the shiny
side of the film must always go against the shoe. The dull (adhesive) side must face away from the shoe.
Make sure the two rolls are aligned with each other before going to the next step.
6. Turn machine on and heat to the desired temperature.
7. With both rolls threaded and installed in their respective brackets, unwind enough film from the top roll
to reach the bottom of the bottom heat shoe. Next, unwind enough film from the bottom roll to reach the
top of the top heat shoe.
8. Now drape the film from the bottom roll against the film from the top roll on the top shoe. If the laminator is
hot, the exposed adhesive on the top web will hold the bottom web and make it easy to stick the two rolls
together. If you are threading the machine while it is cold, use tape to stick the bottom web against the top
web.
9. Tip the safety shield down into the laminating position. With the film draped over the two heat shoes, push
one edge of the threading card between the heat shoes so that the film is firmly positioned against the
laminating rollers. If a threading card is not available, any piece of card stock or poster board will work.
10. Make sure there is still enough slack in the web. Turn the drive switch to FORWARD, permitting the film and
feed board to pass through both sets of rubber rollers. Carefully monitor initial threading to be sure the web
reaches and passes through the pull (back) rollers. When the threading card has cleared the back of the
machine, move the drive switch to the center position (off). Whenever you want to remove the film and/or
laminated material from the back of the machine, use the zippy cutting tool provided with the laminator.
11. Slide the feed tray into position.
12. If the machine has the slitter option, make sure the slitters are disengaged (blades in the raise
position) and moved all the way to either side of the machine.
CAUTION: The laminator is designed to be run with the operator directly facing the
control panel and feed tray, not at an angle or from the side of the machine. For
operator safety, the safety shield must be in position over the upper heat shoe
when the machine is ON, or when the drive switch is in the forward position.

Feeds document too far before it starts copying.


The doc feeder is a little finiky, try letting go of the doc as soon as the feeder detects a doc in place and not force it through the feed slot.

I have a Ibico el12 ii laminator and need to know how to use it. I cant find the instruction manual for it at my new job i put the sheets in as it shows but it labinates the first 1/2 inch then goes no...


You need to put your document in a carrier to prevent the heat from buckling the pouch before it makes it into the rollers. I've had a similar problem in the past before I remembered to use the carrier.

Hi, Our Ibico IL19VT Laminator (A2) has paper jammed inside of it. There are no reverse mechanisms on the laminator. The only feasible method is to open the laminator up at this point, whether or not...


You can open this yourself but i recommend sending it for repair. If you decide to do it yourself here is how: turn the unit over and on the end with only one screw (not the power setting side) take it out using a Philips screwdriver. Next you will need size 3 and 4 hex bits. Use size 4 to undo the 4 hex screws. Hold the non power end and it should slide off. You will see four rollers two on each side of the heater element. Using the size 3 hex bit undo the 4 hex screws at the exposed end and lift up and out the 2 housing bits. Careful as these are made of plastic and break easy. Remove the offending material and then put everything back together.
Simples!
