HL500 Fully Integrated Hot Laminator

Expand your business opportunities by entering new markets!

HL500 is a high performance compact hot lamination system dedicated to the refining process in the production of high-quality photo books, book covers and photo prints. The machine can be fully integrated with most digital presses providing efficient online production.


Compact design – many possibilities
Depending on the configuration, the HL500 hot laminator operates in various modes: roll to roll, roll to sheet and optionally - in length slitting mode. The unique design of the device means that in addition to hot foiling, it can also be used for UV varnishing, spot varnishing with registration and cold UV lamination.

Advanced lamination technology
Thanks to Hard Chrome-plated heating cylinder combined with lamination film you obtain extremely high gloss of the laminate, which ensures excellent photographic results. Hard chrome used as coating on the cylinder guarantees good heat conductivity as well as the high surface tension, which reduces friction and prevents soiling.


  • Extremely high gloss of the laminate for perfect photographic effect
  • Full control over the lamination process thanks to the latest servo technology with tension control
  • Inline with digital press for continuing production
  • High speed up to 60m/min for efficient converting
  • More finishing options in compact construction: UV varnish, spot varnish and UV cold lamination
  • Easy web access and maintenance
