Table Top Platen Fusing/Transfer Printing Machine

This general purpose platen press is standard with top heat and is ideal for fusing, transfer printing and film laminating. Equipped with a preset timer, the heated platen automatically releases as the dwell time expires.

Platen pressure is easily adjusted with a regulator while the appropriate temperatures are maintained with a solid-state thermostat. The reciprocating tray system doubles productivity by providing a loading tray while the original is cycling. The Slide-O-Mat is easy to install and operate with few moving parts resulting in a virtually maintenance-free machine.
