New Hotronix heat press could boost productivity by 50%

Stahls Dual_AF_ with garmentsStahls’ Hotronix has unveiled a new addition to its line of heat presses – the Dual Air Fusion.

Notable for being the first Hotronix heat press to feature two individual platens, the Dual Air Fusion is nearly 50% more efficient than a standard swinger-style heat press.

Stahls credits this performance gain to the Dual Air Fusion’s ability to rapidly shuttle between individual platen workstations and adjust application time and multiple pressure settings based on the position of the upper platen.

With this technology, a user can configure the Dual Air Fusion’s A and B workstations for a variety of different platen sizes and application settings, enabling a dynamic range of mixed-media applications.

“Many of our large and medium-volume customers have been waiting for a dual-platen heat press,” said Ben Robinson, general manager of Stahls’ Hotronix.

“We recognised the demand and need for such a heat press, especially for decorators doing mixed-media applications on the same garment. With the introduction of the new Dual Air Fusion heat press, the wait is over.

“High and medium-volume decorators now have a machine that empowers them to double-down on performance, productivity and ultimately – profits.”

With the Dual Air Fusion’s optional laser alignment system, operators can realise additional productivity gains. Featuring four independently-adjustable lasers per platen, the laser alignment system enables precision decoration for full front, left chest and numerous other garment locations.

The Dual Air Fusion is built around a sturdy, corrosion-resistant, die-cast aluminium framework and features a number of proven Hotronix innovations. Highlights include a touchscreen control panel, Auto-Adjust pressure, Quick Change platens, threadability and a cast-in tubular heating element.

Hotronix, a GroupeSTAHL company, designs, engineers, and manufactures a full line of innovative and technologically advanced heat press machines made in the USA.
