Formax FlashGuard 18R6 Laminator


The FlashGuard 18R6 Heavy-Duty Laminator is ideal for print shops, schools, and corporate offices. With rugged metal housing and user-friendly features, it easily laminates and protects maps, charts, photos, documents, signs, menus, IDs, and more.


The 18R6 features 6 heavy-duty rollers for fast, reliable sealing: 4 heat rollers and  2 cooling rollers. The all-metal housing is durable and stays cool to the touch, thanks to the special internal cooling system. For ideal laminating, the variable temperature control goes up to 320 degrees F (160 degrees C). For temperature-sensitive documents, users can choose the cold lamination function, which seals specially designed pressure-sensitive laminating pouches.


The 18R6 handles pouches up to 18” wide, up to 14 mils, with a maximum laminating thickness of up to 3mm. The wide feed opening is ideal for larger projects like maps, charts, and posters. With an operating speed of up to 47 inches per minute, users can complete projects in a flash. Formax offers 3 mil and 5 mil laminating pouches for standard letter size 8.5” x 11” projects.


Operation is simple using the intuitive graphics-based LCD control panel: simply set the temperature and speed to match the laminating pouch and document thickness. A handy speed/temperature chart is printed on the top of the laminator for quick reference. The control panel features graphic indicators for hot/cold mode, speed, temperature, cooling fan, and roller operation, as well as the ability to store 1 or 2 custom settings for frequently run projects.


Designed with anti-jam rollers, it also includes a reverse button and a dedicated cool-down cycle to prevent damage to the rollers.


For protecting and preserving documents, photos, charts, and more, the FlashGuard 18R6 is a durable, affordable, high-quality solution.
