Paradigm Imaging Group Announces the SID 1600-EW Heat-Assisted Cold Laminator

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Costa Mesa, CA – Paradigm Imaging Group is pleased to announce the newest Laminator from SID Signs, the SID 1600-EW Heat-Assisted Cold Laminator.

The new SID SL 1600 EW is a 62" heat-assisted laminator designed to make the application of pressure sensitive laminates easier. With faster laminations speeds at 236" per minute, it can eliminate silvering, bubbles and wrinkles by applying heat when needed. 

SID SL 1600 EW is a fully functional heat-assist laminator with a stable pressure system.  If the user doesn't need the heat, it doesn't need to be turned on. The top roller of the laminator is heated and the user can adjust the heat temperature of the roller for specialty applications, mounting and over lamination.  It has take up rollers to unwind the release liner backing from pressure sensitive films and can be used with a wide variety of films. It is available with a foot pedal switch, which allows for hands free operation and also suited for accurate piece-to-piece application.

The primary benefit of this type of cold laminator is that it gives the user more control.  With a retail price of $5,900, the new SID 1600 EW laminator is a perfect solution for sign shops, graphic artists, and photographers that need to produce the highest quality output for critical projects.  With a traditional cold laminator, the user really only has control over speed and tension.  By adding heat to the equation, the user is able to achieve better results and use specialty films that are difficult to use otherwise.


  • Max Laminate Width: 1580 mm / 62.2”
  • Max Speed: 236"/min (6m/min)
  • Max Temperature: 60°C / 140°F
  • Voltage: 110V 23A
  • 1 Year Limited Warranty

Says Randy Geesman, president of Paradigm Imaging Group, “The new SID SL 1600 EW Laminator further expands our Sign Market product portfolio, providing our customers with cost effective options to increase their opportunities and profitability in the outdoor graphics market."
