Wondering what is the best, most technologically advanced heat transfer press currently in existence? You’ve found it:
The STAHLS Hotronix Fusion (XF) 40x50cm manual, table-top, threadable touch screen heat press.
If you see this heat press (and other Stahls heat presses) offered at a lower price, just beware that there is a company selling Stahls presses from within Europe. It appears from their website that the presses are in UK stock, but if you ask you will find that they are being sent from Belgium. If you don’t pay VAT at the time of purchase you will probably get a VAT invoice from the courier for VAT payable on the purchase, and additional expense will be incurred should you have any issue with your heat press, as they are sold with a return to base warranty, meaning returning to Belgium and then back, all of which is the responsibily of the buyer. All of our heat presses are sent from UK stock, and all warranties are handled within the UK.
If you’re looking for the Lamborghini, Bentley or Rolls Royce of heat presses, this is it. The Hotronix Fusion from STAHLS, made in the USA, is a dual motion drawer and swing head heat press made to incredibly high standards, with a touch screen control panel featuring unlimited settings pre-sets and programmable daily auto on and off.
This is a heavy-duty high quality transfer press made in the States by STAHLS, and features a cast-in tubular heating element to ensure perfect heat distribution, and a non-stick coated stress relieved anti-warp heat platen.
The best of both worlds are offered with this press in terms of operation, being a dual operation heat press, drawer and swing head. You can swing the heat platen around the back of the machine in order to give you unhindered access to the bottom table, and / or you can pull the lower table out away from the heat platen to give you full access to the lower table without the need to swing the head. This also gives you complete flexibility in terms of where in your workspace you position your press, allowing you to place it up against a wall or in a corner if needs be.
The unique way in which the bottom table is fixed makes this a completely threadable press. Instead of a central fixing going straight down into the framework which is the usual approach and would prevent full threadability, the bottom table fixing runs parallel with the lower table, going back towards the top of the table, and then bending over double into the bottom drawer rail, giving you complete access underneath the lower table.
The pressure application system employed on this press ensures even pressure distribution, coupled with the anti warp heat platen, and the exceptional heating element system ensures even heat distribution, which makes this the ideal heat press for even the most demanding of heat transfer processes.
Now to discuss the digital touch screen controls! If the incredible build quality of this heat press doesn’t set it apart from all other heat presses on the market, then the controls certainly do!
Not only can you simply set the time and temperature via the digital touch screen controls, you can save unlimited numbers of pre-sets including time, temperature and pressure, and name each pre-set so that you or your staff can simply change the settings according to the process.
Fed up of having to come in 30 minutes early each morning to turn on the heat press? With the Fusion there is no need, as you can set it to Auto on and Auto off each day, so it’s heated up and ready for use every morning as soon as you open up, and so that it turns itself off at the end of every day if you so wish. You can set this for every day, so for instance you can set it to stay off at weekends if you only work week days, or if you open at 10am on Saturday’s for example, you can set it to turn on at 9.30am on Saturday’s so it’s heated and ready when you open up.
Worried about other people messing with the settings? This isn’t an issue with the fusion, as you can password protect the touch screen display!
