About the GMP Q-Topic Auto 380 Digital OPP Laminator
The GMP Q-Topic AUTO 380 digital OPP laminating machine offers a true fully automated Single Side Pneumatically Controlled Laminator that can be loaded and left to run unattended. Built on to the same platform as the standard Q-Topic 380 but with a technologically advanced pile feeder which physically lifts the top sheet from the stack and totally eradicates double feeds, even on statically charged materials.
The vacuum feed head incorporates both suction cups and an air blast system that works in union with the suction head to ensure a single sheet is split from the pile on each and every occasion. The feed head is fully adjustable for height in relation to the materials, length of sheets being fed and the volume of air blast and vacuum. The feed technology is not matched on any machine within the same sector, in fact you need to invest over twice the value of the Q-Topic Auto to reach similar reliable feed head technology in a compact machine.
True total automation with effortless lamination at speeds of up to 10 Metres per Minute and for sheet sizes up to SRA3 (max 380 x 500mm). The pile feeder can hold up to 350 mm (up to 3,500 sheets) of material meaning you can load, press go and walk away, True Automation!
The laminating system incorporates the same technology as that found on the semi-automated Q-Topic 380, therefore advanced pneumatic operation combined magic eye technology for accurate and fully adjustable sheet overlapping. The in-built perforating device and auto bursting unit ensure each sheet arrives on the delivery table ready to guillotine and laminated perfectly.
The Q-Topic Auto also has the ability to Sleek/Foil direct from the box, the built-in re-winder enables holographic images, foils and spot lamination in both gloss and matt to be applied to your sheet without any special skills or tools. The foils are also over printable so you can create metallic finishes on images and text as well as produce high-end cards for wedding stationery, invites, tickets, business cards and a whole host of other prints. Pair the Q-Topic with a digital print engine and the possibilities of generating extra revenue from untapped markets could be huge!
Why buy digital laminating machines? For business owners
The Q-Topic Auto has the ability to automatically produce up to 1,200 guillotine ready laminated sheets per hour. The perfect digital laminating machine for businesses who want to bring their digitally printed or medium run-length lithographic lamination requirements in house.
The GMP Auto feed system offers true walk-away technology so your operatives can be left to complete other tasks whilst the laminator is busy creating guillotine ready sheets at at a rate of up to 10 metres per minute. The simplicity of the system ensures the operator has full control of each sheet being fed, guaranteeing perfect lay flat laminating results every time. The Advanced Feed Head is fully adjustable for various sheet sizes from 180 x 250mm to 380 x 500mm and from a stock thickness of 120 to 350gsm, making the Q-Topic Auto extremely flexible.
As with the other machines in the same range the Q-Topic Auto utilises a built in Perforating Roller which is located between the front and rear rollers to allow the perforation to be applied after the laminating process and at the exact position where the sheet is stretched flat. This attention to detail ensures the burst roller uses the least amount of effort to split the sheets which in turn ensures zero marking, even on the most delicate of finishes.
The intuitive heads up touch panel offer a 20 job program memory function enabling repeat work to be recalled instantly, thus allowing an operator to run the work identically each and every time.
As with all the GMP models the latest Sleeking/Foiling effects come as standard, no bolt-ons or aftermarket accessories, just a machine ready to laminate, sleek or spot laminate directly out of the crate. Investments in this type of technology often allow company owners to tap into new revenue streams that were once not accessible with compact digital machines such as this.
If you are outsourcing as few as 50 sheets per week this solution will give you a swift return on investment whilst also giving you back control of your work and quality of the laminated finish.
Why buy digital laminating machines? For operators
The Q-Topic 380 Auto is a simple to use fully automated digital or litho digital laminating machines that have been designed to offer perfect results with the minimum of fuss. It can handle a wide variety of sheet thicknesses and can prevent media curl using the integrated anti-curl bar system.
The advanced Auto Feed Technology offers true walk-away automation and allows operators to load up to 3,500 sheets and press go, fully automating the lamination process. Even on difficult materials the advanced air blast system, next sheet foot press and twin suction cup with directional feed ensure each and every sheet is physically lifted from the pile and completely removes the risk of double or miss feeds. The system can operate at speeds up to 10 meters per minute without operator intervention enabling you to produce up to 1,200 guillotine ready laminated sheets every hour.
For the operator, every aspect of the operation is controlled from the centrally located heads up, display unit with touch-sensitive haptic feedback to confirm each press of control has been accepted. All repeat jobs can be stored for instant recall enabling the operator to simply set the adjustments on the feed head in the knowledge that the speed, temperature, sheet length and burst position are all stored and ready for action at the press of a button.
