1. Curved Platens
The Model 418’s curved platens are perfectly molded to mirror the curves of a hat & are designed for the application of heat transfers onto cap brims & bills.
2. Cap Hold Down
Its strategically designed cap hold down mechanism snaps into place to hold the body of the hat taught, for hassle-free application.
3. Interchangeable Platens
A larger 4.5”x6.75” lower accessory platen can be purchased and easily snapped into place for printing on hats with larger brims.
4. Central Pressure Source
Its pressure source is strategically placed over the center of the upper platen and uses struts to drive that pressure out to all corners. The result is an even and heavy duty distribution of pressure that is unmatched by other heat presses in the market today.
5. Cast-In Heating Element
The tubular heating element is cast into the aluminum upper platen, heating the metal from within. The element is coiled throughout the upper platen to provide a reliable and even circulation of heat out to all corners.
6. Cast Aluminum Assembly
Machines made from cast metal are considered to be the highest quality and are strong enough to withstand heavy use without warping or bending. The 418 is extremely durable and, if cared for properly, can last up to 25 years.
