Sublimation Heat Presses  - HIX Manual Clamshell

HT400 - Manual Clamshell 15'' x 15" Heat Press


From volume applications to small production runs, the HIX line of Clamshell Heat Transfer Machines continue to lead the industry.  HIX Clamshell Presses have the ability to work with all commercial transfers on the market today.  Their rugged construction and dependability makes these presses an asset in any shop.  The success of the clamshell design stems from the presses ability to maintain consistent heat and pressure over the surface of the heat element with demonstrated success transferring puff, foil, hot split, cold peel and sublimation transfers.

The HT400 features a touch-screen controller that is adjustable up to 999 seconds, shows time countdown on readout, beeps after elapsed time, and resets when the handle is raised. The calibrated digital temperature control is adjustable up to 450°F (232°C) and displays the current temperature.

The easy-to-use open-and-close handle has spring assist and a full range pressure adjustment, provides even pressure on thicker items, and adds 20% more pressure over straight handle designs.The HT400 is ETL certified. It has a limited 1-year warranty and a lifetime warranty on the heating element.

Note: In continuous use/high volume shops, use 220v presses for faster heat recovery.

  HT400 Features:

• Totally integrated digital time and temperature. Turn the heat press on and easily set the temperature (with the press open) on the integrated touch-screen controller. When the press reaches the pre-set temperature (max is 450Ί), it maintains this value within +/- 2Ί. Next, set cycle time. When you close the press, the timer will start its countdown. When it reaches “0,” the buzzer will sound. Lifting the upper platen will automatically reset the timer. Note: The press will display its current temperature between cycles.

• The SwingMan swing-away design not only ensures that the heat is always away from your face, but also that there is no danger of accidentally running your hands up into a very hot heater block (as there may be with a clamshell press).

• The SwingMan 20 has the ability to achieve very even pressure on large, thick items or multiple small, thick items because all pressure is exerted perpendicularly onto the lower platen when the press is closed. Upon opening, the heater block lifts straight up and is then swung to the right. The procedure is reversed when closing. Using the convenient swing-arm, the heater block is swung back left (an internal stop positions it over the lower platen). It is then ready to close. It should be noted that the swing requires very little effort to maneuver.

• The press accepts setups up to 1.75” thick. This is a very desirable benefit for those shops that want to truly maximize the potential of their press operations. The SwingMan 20 presses tiles, plaques, really thick jackets, sublimatable awards, etc.

• ETL Listed. The Electrical Testing Laboratory (ETL) listing for manufacturers is similar to the UL (Underwriters Laboratory) listing for household appliances. The ETL Listed Mark is issued to products that have met the requirements of product safety standards in the US and Canada for residential and commercial use. On a practical basis, this means that all components, wiring, connections, and construction meet a pre-described set of specifications as outlined in that standard. This means that the press is safe in your home or business.

• Lifetime warranty on the heater element and a one-year warranty on other parts of the press.
