GBC Launches the Revolutionary Foton 30 Laminator

GBC® has launched the groundbreaking Foton™ 30, the first affordable, fully automated laminator that is redefining limits in the lamination category. The Foton 30, which was in development for over four years, is both time-efficient and cost-effective, resulting in a superior quality output for a fraction of the cost of an industrial machine.

Easy. Fully automated. Pouch-free. The Foton 30 is proven to free up 98 percent of your time spent laminating compared to manual pouch loading and feeding.

With the Foton 30, there is no warm up, and the fully automated system will do all the feeding, laminating, and trimming for standard size papers. Drop up to thirty documents in the tray, press run, and save over thirty minutes of highly valued user time previously spent loading, feeding, or repositioning.

This easy-to-use laminator provides benefits like automated deskew, which gives perfect positioning and borders every time. Foton 30’s internal sensors auto-detects film thickness and provides perfect cuts with no waste or manual trimming. Even cartridge loading is as easy as simply dropping the cartridge into the machine. No film threading required.

GBC knows, whether you’re a mailroom manager, teacher, facilities manager, or franchise printer, your equipment needs to work fast, the first time and every time, and each Foton 30 comes with a risk-free 60-day trial and a two-year or 5,000-cycle warranty.

“GBC’s number one goal is to be the most reliable, efficient brand in the classroom, office, production room or other place of business, and we know our Foton 30 will be that machine,” shares Daniel Charwath, product marketing manager at GBC. “The Foton 30 is set to disrupt the lamination industry and will be life-changing for anyone that laminates with pouches regularly.”

The Foton 30 is now available on, Amazon, and through select office dealers.
