The Buisker family purchased the engineering and inventory from Bob Greig in 1995 and continued Bob’s legacy for designing and engineering robust laminators for the wide format graphics industry. In 1999, AGL moved in their headquarters located in Deforest, WI, and continued expanding the product line to include one of the most comprehensive brands in laminators today.
In 2001, AGL introduced its films division supplying consumable laminates, mounting adhesives and backing materials to the industry. This accomplished a one stop shop for the benefit of those customers that prefer a single source supplier for their laminating needs. Over the years the Cover-Rite, Mount-Smart and Shadow-Block trade marks have become a trusted brand among graphics professionals. In 2006, AGL introduced the Print-Rite line of media for the same industry. Thereby expanding the concept of the single source supplier.
AGL is known for its diverse graphic laminator product line. It all began with the flagship laminator, the AGL 6400. A bi-directional, multi-shaft laminator with pneumatic tension control designed for the high volume continuous use graphic providers. The robust design of this laminator has proven itself in the wide-format graphics industry for over 15 years.
The next laminator designed was the 64i, which incorporated revolutionary new features allowing operators to utilize more process control and eliminate waste. Some of these innovative features are; “Easy Web” infeed table, RTS (Repeatable Tension System) and the Curl Cam which allows for allows for processing unique film combinations. The features may be seen in detail at the following URL, http://www.aglinc.com/agl_64i.htm.
The Encore series of laminators offers a unique opportunity for the entrepreneur seeking print finishing solutions for moderate demand facilities. There are four models in the product line to meet a variety of production as well as budgetary objectives. They are the Encore NH, Encore SH, Encore DHR and the Encore Maxim.
The most recent addition to the AGL product line is the Patriot. The Patriot laminator is designed to specifically address the issues associated with finishing UV, Latex and Solvent based printing technologies. With AGL’s Proprietary nip roll design and the Industries best heating system, this Laminator solves the problems associated with poor laminate adhesion and silvering. This laminator incorporates features such as fully pneumatic tension control system, cantilevered material supply stations and swing up infeed table.
In many laminating markets standard run-of-the-mill pressure sensitive/thermal mounting presses do not meet specific laminating requirements. Advanced Greig Laminators, Inc. (AGL) has answered this dilemma with an industrial laminating product line that can be customized and configured to specific customer requirements. Advanced Greig Laminators, Inc. (AGL) specializes in custom designed industrial laminators. We encourage customers to combine process requirements into custom machine configurations. By utilizing standard subassembly components such as unwind stations, rewind station, nip roller assemblies and pull rollers in numerous widths (14”, 36”, 40”, 64”, 80”, 110”) AGL can create a custom laminator in a cost-effective fashion.
