This commercial-grade heat press from Promo HeatTM has a 12" x 9.25" element that allows you to create custom t-shirts, license plates, and many other unique and fun items. Transfer onto an array of flat surface materials such as fabric, metal, ceramic, wood and glass. The swing-away design applies pressure straight down for a more even application. The aluminum lower platen with integrated hi-temp silicone pad is elevated to easily insert and remove t-shirts from the machine. The element is non-stick and Teflon-coated to prevent scorching of transfers and does not require a separate silicone/Teflon sheet. The pressure-adjustment knob allows you to adjust the pressure according to the thickness of the material to which you re transferring. Digital temperature control lets you preset the temperature; the element will stop heating when the preset temperature is reached. A digital timer with an audible alarm helps avoid overexposure. This commercial-grade heat press is true 550 watts rated with a temperature range up to 750 degrees Fahrenheit. Arrives fully assembled and ready to use with pre-installed Teflon-coated element and operating instructions (printer and paper not included).
