SEAL® Launches New, Improved, Ultra Plus Laminators
Elkridge, MD, October 24, 2007 and SGIA 2007, Orlando, Florida, October 24-27, 2007 - SEAL® brand has
added new productivity features to its popular lineup of SEAL Ultra roller laminators. The new and improved
Ultras, dubbed the SEAL® Ultra Plus series, will be introduced at the 2007 SGIA trade show in Orlando Florida,
this October, and will include the following models:
- SEAL 44 Ultra Plus - 43" working width, dual heat
- SEAL 44 Ultra S Plus - 43" working width, single heat
- SEAL 62 Ultra Plus - 61" working width, dual heat
- SEAL 62 Ultra S Plus - 61" working width, single heat
- SEAL 62 Ultra C Plus - 61" working width, cold
According to SEAL, the new Ultra Plus laminators are aimed at entry-level to intermediate-level image finishers
working in low to mid-volume environments. With productivity enhancements, they will replace the current SEAL
Ultra laminator line. MSRP’s range from $6,495 to $8,995 depending on the model selected.
The key improvements that give these new models their "Plus" designation include the dual heat option and the
addition of an automatic take-up shaft for removing release liners. In addition, the 44 Ultra Plus dual heat and 44
Ultra S Plus single heat laminators operate on 110V power. This allows small shops to expand their range of
services, offering heat-assisted or heat-activated finishing solutions, such as encapsulating, without the expense
of installing 220V electrical service.
Standard features that carry over from the previous Ultra line include: touch-pad controls, adjustable speed -
up to 5 fpm for heated units and 10 fpm for cold machines, 3 pre-set temperature selections, 8 pre-set nip
openings - from 0 to ½-inch, easy-clean silicone rollers, auto-grip supply shafts, foot controls, an on-board quick
reference guide, comprehensive safety systems, and a space-saving portable design.
"Our goal in developing the new Ultra Plus units was to expand capabilities and enhance some of the volume
production related features, while maintaining a very cost-effective, compact line of laminators for local and
regional sign/display producers," says Dave Conrad, SEAL brand Product Manger for equipment. "We’re
confident we have succeeded."
The SEAL Ultra Plus laminators are CE/ETL/CSA certified, are backed by authorized SEAL technical and
applications support, and come with a one year limited warranty (180 days on rollers). They will be available for
shipment immediately following SGIA. Customers can contact SEAL brand for more information and a free
