STAHLS’ International has launched the Hotronix® Air Fusion™, the only auto-open, auto-swing heat press of its kind. The Air Fusion is powered by an air compressor, and has patented, innovative features designed to increase production for high volume and specialty decorators.
The patented Auto Adjust Pressure™ is just one of the many features exclusive to this press. Up to four different pressure and time settings can be programmed allowing the user to select the appropriate application based on the requirements of the heat transfer material and fabric of the garment, making it easier than ever to switch between garments of different thickness such as T-shirts and hoodies.
The Air Fusion is the only press with a lower platen that can be freely ‘dressed,’ with no obstructions: the open design makes it easy to load garments onto the press and then rotate them from front to back or side to side as graphics are applied. Another exclusive feature to the Air Fusion is the auto open, swing away design which provides a safe, heat-free workspace while providing a user-safe, two-hand operation. In addition, the exclusive patented adjustable stand allows operators of any height to raise or lower the heat press to their specific comfort level, creating the perfect ergonomic working environment.
According to Ben Robinson, General Manager for STAHLS’ Hotronix, ‘Out of all of the presses and innovations we’ve designed, the Air Fusion is over the top. No other heat press in the world has as many features as the Air Fusion. It’s the most reliable and durable press ever made. Designed to maximize production and make garment decorating easier, we think it’s the ideal press for high volume decorators who want to decrease manufacturing time and increase profits.’
Another unique feature of the Air Fusion is the touch screen technology. One can digitally set the time, temperature, and pressure on the display. It has dual time settings for two-step applications, preset programs, an energy-saving sleep mode, and a production cycle counter. It also offers the option to display measurements in Fahrenheit or Centigrade.
This heavy duty machine has a cast-in tubular heating element every two inches to ensure there are no cold spots and a high-quality die cast aluminum framework. The 41cm x 51cm (16″ x 20”) heat platen is a sturdy ¾ inch thick and interchangeable lower platens can be ordered for garments of different standard and custom sizes.
The Hotronix Air Fusion™ is available for international ordering in August 2012.
