The Dry-Lam FUJiPLA ALM 3220 Automatic Laminator

This two-sided laminator features an automatic sheet feeder and will laminate and trim virtually unattended. Also capable of one-sided lamination, the ALM 3220 can laminate using a matte or gloss finish up to 5 mil. Perhaps the most impressive feature is its adhesive that can stick to anything. Other laminators’ less than perfect lamination can be caused by waxy toners, inks and fuser oils, but the ALM 3220 uses a special adhesive which will stick and stay stuck no matter what.
