The 1224PA Heat Press can operate in three modes:

  1. Fully Automatic Mode - In this mode each transfer is automatically positioned under the platen by an infra-red photocell. The dwell time is controlled by a digital timer. At the end of the preset dwell time, the platen raises and the next transfer is automatically indexed into position.
  2. Semi-Automatic Mode - This flavor of operation has a delay which allows the operator to adjust exact placement of the garment and/or transfer before the heated platen is fully engaged. The operator controls the activation of the platen using the foot pedal.
  3. Manual Feed - Each transfer is manual placed in position - this options allows production of small lots with individual cut transfers.

The feed system supports various transfer sizes from 3/4" x 3/4" to 9-3/4" x 9-3/4". The bottom platen easily accomodates irregular shaped objects including tote bags and backpacks. Also check out our 1550-PA heat press which includes a custom platen that we created for one of our customers who was using the press for sublimation on tote bags.
