A machine used to apply plastic onto various films, most usually posters to preserve the posters from colour fade and as protection against tearing. Laminating can be done using cold films or thermal films. Thermal films are run at approx 110-130 degrees.

Laminators are also a pain to set up and usually cause minor burns on fingers and backs of hands when using heat shoe machines as it is a metal plate that heats up rather than the roller itself.
Could you put this poster through the laminator to preserve it for me

Holy shit, the fucking laminator just burnt me while I was trying to set it up again.
