Dual Laminator


Nisca was the first company, in 1998, to offer the modular laminating unit attached to the printer. Today, that same design has proven its effectiveness by laminating many millions of cards at thousands of locations.

The secret to the design is inside the orange roller ¿ a halogen heat lamp. This specially designed ¿heat roller¿ offers extremely quick heat-up and cool-down times - you can begin to print and laminate in less than 2 minutes. The heat roller also offers an extremely long life and is more energy efficient than common heating elements used in other systems.

The modular design is optimal for field upgrades. No tools are required to add a laminator to an existing Nisca printer. When the laminator is attached to the printer, the printer automatically configures the laminator. This is ideal for serviceability and ease of integration.

The PR5302 Heat Roller (laminator) is designed to easily attach and operate with Nisca dual-sided PR53XX series printers. The unit offers high-speed lamination for standard CR-80 cards. A state of the art RS-422 high-speed
communication port interfaces with the printer, allowing the printer's firmware and driver to optimally configure the unit for a variety of laminate materials.

Additionally, two PR5302s can be attached together and configured with one PR5300, PR5310 or PR5350 printer to apply different types of laminate materials to a card. This solution offers the utmost in security and protection
for your applications.

  • High speed lamination ¿ from 8 to 50 seconds per card

  • Hardcoat 1mil or .5 mil patch lamination ¿ registered and wallpaper formats, model 5302A

  • Thinfilm lamination ¿ registered and wallpaper formats, model 5302D

  • Dual sided lamination ¿ same patch or alternating front/back patches, two PR5302 as shown below

  • High speed dual sided lamination ¿ using two lamination units

Nisca offers two types of laminators, the PR5302A and the PR5302D. Both types have support for either 110 Volt or 220 Volt power. There is no auto-switching, therefore the power requirements must be specified at time of purchase


Easy Laminate Change Field Upgradable

With one PR5302 Heat Roller the user can laminate a single side ¿ front or back ¿ by configuring the hardware in the Nisca driver. It is also possible to laminate both sides of the card with one laminator, which can be configured in the driver as well. As there is only one supply of laminate material in one Heat Roller unit, you are limited in laminating both sides of the card with the same laminate material, unless you have purchased ¿Alternating Patch¿ material. Nisca's alternating patch material gives the user the option to laminate both sides of the card with two different laminate designs.

In most cases, users request a hologram on the front of the card and a clear material on the back of the card to protect a bar code or other critical data. The alternating patch material is also commonly used for Smart Card applications where there is a contact IC chip on the front of the card and a magnetic stripe on the back of the card. In this case the alternating patch material will have a die cut out for the IC chip on the front and a 3/4 patch on the back of the card so the magnetic stripe does not interfere with it.

Dual lamination with two PR5302 units attached can successfully be used in many applications where the customer requires lamination on both sides of the card with different laminate material, and also requires higher through-put. Operating a system configured with two Heat Roller units increases printing speed greatly over a single lamination system using alternating patch material. Adding two PR5302 units to your printer is simple, but does require a special Y-cable and ROM for the second laminator (part number: 3885cable/rom), so please instruct your reseller that this is the desired configuration and specify the cable on your order.
