The HIX auto release press is the most reliable Auto-Opening heat transfer machine on the market. Requiring no air feed, this Semi-Automatic press utilizes an electronic release mechanism with a gas shock assist to guarantee opening at the end of the print cycle. Hands free opening saves time and effort allowing the operator to apply more transfers in a shift with less effort than a traditional heat transfer press. Direct-To-Garment applications are also a large driving force in the success of the auto-open feature, allowing you the freedom of loading your printer while the last print is curing, eliminating any risk of scorching or compromising transfer quality due to overheating.
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.
