Designed by Teachers - For Teachers
Teachers and media specialists were asked what they wanted to see in a laminator ... and they told us! And that got designed into the Educator! We created simplified controls and an improved film path to eliminate many of the operator errors common to using thermal laminators in the school environment.
Teaching aids of all types, posters, dry erase charts, flash cards, bulletin board graphics, games and visuals represent a tremendous investment, whether they were purchased, or made by teachers. Protecting and enhancing these educational materials with lamination allows them to last for years instead of being replaced every few weeks or months. The Educator offers the control needed to laminate different types of materials using different films with a minimum of operator adjustments and experience.

Ledco Educator Features
Features that contribute to the quality of lamination and dependability of the Educator include:
- Preset lamination pressure and speed - Makes the machine easier to use and eliminates many possible sources of problems.
- Enclosed laminating and pull rollers - Helps you avoid time-consuming jams and wrap-arounds.
- Forced air cooling - Allows laminating with 3 and 5-mil films, as well as the 1.5 mil film often used by schools. Without a film cooling system, thicker films will warp and ripple because they are still hot and partly melted when they come out of the laminator.
- Fixed-position lamination rollers - Provides a stable platform for uniform roll pressure which provides the highest quality lamination available in a school laminator.
- Attached safety shield - The safety shield is fixed to the machine and is placed so that the operator will naturally put it in the guard position before laminating. The shield is made of clear polycarbonate so users can see their work and will not be tempted to try to laminate without the shield in its safe position.
- Reverse switch - Can be essential at times to help avoid problems or clear miss feeds.
- Adjustable heat control - If you have used a kitchen oven, you'll feel comfortable with our heat control dial. It allows you to use films up to 5 mil.
- Supply roll tension knobs. Gives you the control you need to produce wrinkle-free lamination without complicating your work.
- Separate safety cutter. Provides a safe means of cutting work off the back of the machine and eliminates the usual tear bar which may cut fingers or snag clothing.
- Slitter option. The Educator is the only school laminator with a safety-designed slitter option to reduce trimming time on same-size pieces, enabling higher volumes of work.
- Manufactured in the U.S.A. means quality, better service, and faster parts availability.
