About the Compadre

The Compadre is an entry level laminator designed to satisfy the small to medium sign shop market. This laminator incorporates AGL’s original nip roll design and configuration with a maximum working width of 64 inches. The Compadre allows for more reliable print laminating and mounting at faster throughput speeds up to 20 fpm. It features a six inch nominaldiameter steel non-crowned silicone covered nip roll assembly with gap adjustment from -1/16 to ¾” inch. AGL's rollers are straight and concentrically ground to yielding less print distortion and wrinkling. The heated top nip roll features preset heat assist for warming up pressure sensitive over-laminates resulting in a perfectly smooth output. The rollers are made of high release silicone for easy cleaning. The Compadre comes standard with two unwind supply shafts, one finished product windup shaft and one release liner windup.
