Operator movement is limited to loading and unloading
operations thereby reducing fatigue and maximizing production.
Digital temperature and time controllers provide accurate
control and ease of adjustment.
The anvil shape of the bottom platens allows ease in
loading tubular goods and minimizes wrinkling.
The AIT 1550-PA is "Safety Certified" and
will meet or exceed worldwide safety and efficiency standards.
Heat Transfer on T-shirt
Standard equipment includes a head safety device, and
swing-away head. Heat Press is engineered with quick
disconnect design for quick changing of platens.
HEAT CONTROL: The AIT 1550PA also includes the
Mica Heat Matte that is engineered with 30 years of experience
in heat control of platen type presses. In the case of
platen machine there are some basic certainties:
Heat is Dynamic. The edges of the platen always
lose head faster then the center. The 1550PA compensates
for this with higher wattage elements around the perimeter.
Mica Heat Matte
Heat Trasfer is most efficient with contact. The
Mica Matte has 100% contact with the heated plate. The
others have much less contact with the plate which translates
to a much slower reaction time.
The 1550PA is faster. A foot switch activates the cycle
to move the head from one side to the other and automatically
brings the head down to start the pressing cycle.
A head safety is provided. Competitive machines require
the oeprator to manually push a tray under the head. The
operator must then depress two buttons and hold the buttons
until the head makes contact.
- The anvil style bottom plate allows the tube of the
garment over and allows single ply pressing. Many competitive
machines to not allow this.
Multiple Platen sizes are
- The 1550 has a quick change feature that allows both
the top plate and the bottom plate to be changed in 5
minutes or less. Many of our customers have multiple head
sizes for different applications including sublimating
onto gym bags, backpacks, etc.
The Astex 1550PA Heat Transfer Press is also available with an optional custom steel stand with locking casters:
