PART II - Heat Press Machine - Introduction

A heat press machine is a machine engineered to imprint a design or graphic on a substrate, such as a T-shirt, with the application of heat and pressure for a preset period of time.

While heat presses are often used to apply designs to fabrics, they can also be used to imprint designs on mugs, plates, jigsaw puzzles etc.

Both manual and automatic heat press machines are widely available. A new style of heat press machine that is semi-automatic has entered the market as well, allowing for a manual closing process with an automatic opening.

Digital technology in newer heat press machine enables precise control of heat and pressure levels and timing. The most common types of heat press machine employ a flat platen to apply heat and pressure to the substrate.

In the "clamshell" design, the upper heat element in the press opens like a clamshell, while in the "swing-away" design, the heat platen swings away from the lower platen.

Another design type a "draw style press" allows for the bottom platen to be pulled out like a drawer away from the heat for preparation of the graphic.

Vacuum presses
utilise air pressure to provide the necessary force and can achieve high psi ratings.

Most heat press machines currently on the market use an aluminum upper-heating element with a heat rod cast into the aluminum or a heating wire attached to the element.
