When the upper platen is lowered by hand, it will trip a micro switch just before closure, and the machine will take over applying your preset pressure. At the end of the preset time, the machine will open automatically for you. Because it is air operated, you can set the amount of pressure on the machine and it will adjust automatically to the product no matter what the thickness.

This automatic (clamshell) presses help reduce operator fatigue in long production runs. They are also very useful in heavy traffic tourist retail shops where numerous garment types, such as sweats and T-shirts, are continuously being produced. It come with the optional pre-press switch.

HIX Touch-screen Controller: Switching between jobs is now as simple as pushing pre-select keys on a car radio. Simply pre-program each of 4 possible selection with different combinations of time and temperature to simply toggle between the selections.

Another example would be the 2-step selection whereby, within the same job, the machine can be set to handle two alternating cycle times (e.g. one for a pre-press, followed by one for a final press).

The new controller has been tested rigorously and has held up superbly in all performed tests putting more user-friendly control functions in the hands of the customer. The controllers are also an upgrade in electronic reliability as well as a direct response to a more general market-demand for intuitive touch-screen functionality on all modern devices.

HIX Water Separation Trap: The HIX Water Separation Trap is an integral component of your automated press equipment. When you use compressed air equipment to drive your automatic heat transfer press, condensation will build up in your air hoses. The trap filters and prohibits water from building up and possibly damaging your system. This is where the Water Separation Trap comes in! This is for use with the HIX N-680 and N-880 automatic air heat transfer machines.
