CLM - Inside the Laminator

The CLM laminator has one standard laminator, in the L1 position, with an optional second laminator in the L2 position. The laminators apply topcoat or patch overlay material to the card. Topcoat is a continuous film and patch is a die-cut polyester shape. Both laminators can apply either overlay type.
