- Additional information
The Guided Roller Jig provides more help to novice operators than our other models, with the bed coming with alignment guides instead of lining-up pins. The guides can be adjusted and set to precise media widths and they help hold it steady before its fed into the rollers. A butting guide on the rollers is used to help join the ends of two components together. This jig comes with a set of fixed height rollers, they have a 3mm height and can handle plate media with a maximum width of 240mm.
Using the Jig and Roller
Using this jig to assemble a number plate means following some simple steps to ensure every plate made has a professional finish. The instructions below on assembling number plate media should only be considered a basic guide.
Loosen up the thumb screws on top of the alignment guides and then set them so they’re the correct width for the number plate your’re assembling, ensure you re-tighten the screws. Push down the end butting guide so it blocks access to the rollers. Place the media sheet onto the jig bed, with the printed face-up between the guides and slide it along so it touches the butting guide, ensure the sheet is flat and free from dust. Next, take the rigid reflective plate or acrylic face and remove the release paper off the adhesive. Slide it through the next notch up on the guides with the adhesive face down towards the other media. Push it all the way to the end towards the butting guide. With the two pieces perfectly aligned, push down near the butting guide so the two ends stick together.
Pull up the end butting guide so it allows access to the rollers, and take hold of the roller handle in one hand. Turn the handle with one hand and push the media into the rollers with the other. The rollers will combine and stick the two parts together and remove any air bubbles from between the components.
The jig bed and alignment guides are all made from a durable plastic along with the roller sides and arm, these surfaces can be easily wiped down. Both rollers are made from a soft rubber so take care not to mark or scour their surface. Use a lint free cloth and mild detergent, wipe away any dust or dirt and allow all surfaces to completely dry before further use. Its best to keep your Guided Roller Jig in a clean location so number plates made on it aren’t contaminated with any dirt or grease.
