From volume applications to small production
runs, the HIX line of Clamshell Heat Transfer Machines continue to lead
the industry. HIX Clamshell Presses have the ability to work with
all commercial transfers on the market today. Their rugged
construction and dependability makes these presses an asset in any shop.
The success of the clamshell design stems from the presses ability to
maintain consistent heat and pressure over the surface of the heat
element with demonstrated success transferring puff, foil, hot split,
cold peel and sublimation transfers.
The HT400 features a touch-screen controller that is adjustable up to
999 seconds, shows time countdown on readout, beeps after elapsed time,
and resets when the handle is raised. The calibrated digital temperature
control is adjustable up to 450°F (232°C) and displays the current
The easy-to-use open-and-close handle has spring assist and a full range
pressure adjustment, provides even pressure on thicker items, and adds
20% more pressure over straight handle designs.The HT400 is ETL
certified. It has a limited 1-year warranty and a lifetime warranty on
the heating element.
Note: In continuous use/high volume shops, use 220v presses for
faster heat recovery.
Totally integrated digital time and temperature. Turn the heat press on
and easily set the temperature (with the press open) on the integrated
touch-screen controller. When the press reaches the pre-set temperature
(max is 450º), it maintains this value within +/- 2º. Next, set cycle
time. When you close the press, the timer will start its countdown. When
it reaches “0,” the buzzer will sound. Lifting the upper platen will
automatically reset the timer. Note: The press will display its current
temperature between cycles.
The SwingMan swing-away design not only ensures that the heat is always
away from your face, but also that there is no danger of accidentally
running your hands up into a very hot heater block (as there may be with
a clamshell press).
The SwingMan 20 has the ability to achieve very even pressure on large,
thick items or multiple small, thick items because all pressure is
exerted perpendicularly onto the lower platen when the press is closed.
Upon opening, the heater block lifts straight up and is then swung to
the right. The procedure is reversed when closing. Using the convenient
swing-arm, the heater block is swung back left (an internal stop
positions it over the lower platen). It is then ready to close. It
should be noted that the swing requires very little effort to maneuver.
The press accepts setups up to 1.75” thick. This is a very desirable
benefit for those shops that want to truly maximize the potential of
their press operations. The SwingMan 20 presses tiles, plaques, really
thick jackets, sublimatable awards, etc.
ETL Listed. The Electrical Testing Laboratory (ETL) listing for
manufacturers is similar to the UL (Underwriters Laboratory) listing for
household appliances. The ETL Listed Mark is issued to products that
have met the requirements of product safety standards in the US and
Canada for residential and commercial use. On a practical basis, this
means that all components, wiring, connections, and construction meet a
pre-described set of specifications as outlined in that standard. This
means that the press is safe in your home or business.
Lifetime warranty on the heater element and a one-year warranty on other
parts of the press.
