Types of Heat Presses

There are two main types of heat press machine were available in the market, which is a swing-away type and clam type.

  1. Swing-Away type: Top platen with swing-away type of press lifts straight up and it also swings to the right.  Most of top platens for swing-away presses can rotate about 100 degrees.
  2. Clam type: Standard clamshell heat press machine in the other hand has a top platen.  The top platen just lifts straight up. The top platen of a clam draw press lifts straight up and the user can then slide the bottom platen out towards the user. If your showroom got minimum space, we are more suggesting you to choose clamshell type.



Always remember the size of machine must be at least equal to your jobs and business.  Not too small until you can’t complete customer order on time and not too big when you only received small quantity orders.  The bigger the machine, the bigger the designs the press is capable of printing.
