Appearance and Hardware

The Fellowes Saturn 3i Laminator measures 5.8-inches x 4.1-inches x 20.9-inches and weighs approximately 5.1 pounds. This machine can perform both hot and cold lamination for up to 5mil thermal pouches imparting a durable and professional look in the process. It’s fitted with a wide range of easy-to-use controls and a smooth roller system that ensures quality results for different projects. It’s designed to handle small to moderate usage and fitted with LED lights and audio beeps for easy notification when things are ready.

Features and Performance

The Fellowes Saturn 3i is shipped with ten, 3mil A4-sized pouches to get you started. Users can easily switch between working with thermal laminating pouches or cold, self-adhesive pouches with the touch of a button.

Our research proved the InstaHeat Technology enables the machine to warm up in under 60 seconds--just as advertised. Plus, the auto shut off system turns off the machine in case it gets too hot after a given duration of use.

This tool has additional features including:

  • Includes laminating starter kit
  • An advanced system which allows users to laminate varying mil thickness without having to wait for the machine to heat-up or cool down.
  • Huge 12.5-inch wide entry width able to handle multiple document sizes
  • Hot lamination for 3- or 5-mil pouches and cold lamination for self-adhesive pouches
  • A reverse lever for disengaging in case you need to remove or re-center the laminate

In case your documents are turning out crinkled, check the back of the machine to ensure the hook on the exit tray is not the cause of the problem. If it is, stretching the prongs apart to create a bit more tension should solve the issue.

Overall, the Saturn 3i is awesome for small or moderate laminating jobs. It’s great for laminating any document less than an A4-sized item. However, it’s a bit difficult for laminating small documents such as cards since there’s no solid level surface at the feeder end making it difficult to place cards without them overlapping or falling. To handle this problem, laminate the document first and then trim down any extra sheets as required to avoid jamming.
