MAXX Heat Press Overview:
It’s a high pressure clam heat press which makes it ideal for transfer pressing plastisol-based, digital and lithographic heat press transfers, Heat Transfer Vinyl, Printable Heat Transfer Vinyl, transfer papers and sublimation transfers.
Designed, manufactured and assembled in the USA by Hotronix®, the world’s leading manufacturer of heat presses, the MAXX press features digital user controls to make it easy to operate, patented over-the-centre pressure adjustment for even pressure and heating, and edge-to-edge temperature consistency which eliminates the cold spots you’d often find in inferior heat presses. As well as being a great value heat press, it also has the industry’s best value warranty and optional quick-release, lower platens for easier heat application onto more difficult items, such as bags, sleeves and even shoes!
Relying on a competitively-priced heat press that easily outperforms every other heat press in its price range is easy to do with the MAXX heat press, especially if you’re just getting started at heat printing, doing it part-time or just need a reliable back-up heat press.
The advantages of the MAXX press over other heat presses are as follows:
- Over-the-Centre Pressure Adjustment to Guarantee Even Heat Pressure: They are specifically manufactured with a Stahls patented “Over-the-Centre” pressure adjustment and a floating upper heat platen to ensure even application pressure and a “no-pinch” application regardless of the thickness of the garment.
- Solid State Temperature Controller for Accurate Heat Reading: In order to maintain an accurate heat, the upper heat platens are cast in cal-rods which are evenly positioned in a zig-zag pattern throughout the upper platen. Before installation, the heating element is also thoroughly x-rayed to ensure its build-quality and maintain the highest levels of accuracy. In addition, all Hotronix heat presses are controlled by a solid-state controller that gives the operator an accurate digital display of both the current temperature and time setting.
- Proudly Built in the USA: Don’t be fooled by heat presses that suggest that they are manufactured in the USA, UK or Europe – Most presses available on the UK market are built from component parts from China that are often unreliable and inferior in quality to the heat presses we supply. As one of the most valuable assets to your business, insist on the best and insist on US build quality.
- Wide Opening for Easy Garment Placement: They have a wide 65 degree opening, which is 10% wider than most other clam-style heat presses available in the UK market. This allows for much safer and easier positioning of garments and heat transfers on the lower heat platen prior to applying them.
- Time-Saving Optional Extras: We also supply several quick-release Hotronix lower platens to make application easier to difficult-to-print garments, such as bags, sleeves and hoodies. There’s also a table-top Hotronix Heat Press CounterCaddie and a free-standing Hotronix Heat Press Caddie Stand which allow you to thread garments around the heat press much more easily, which significantly increases your productivity.
