Stahls Hotronix Heat Press Machines

Hotronix Heat Presses

Hotronix Heat Press Machines are known for being some of the best in the business. If you are looking to invest in a new heat press, you have already don't 2 things right. First, you are looking at the Hotronix brand, which you will absolutely love the quality and reliability. Next (and maybe most important), you are doing research. Too many people invest tons of money in a heat press machine without the proper research. This article should help you understand all about Hotronix heat press machines, so you make the best choice for your business.

What is a Hotronix Heat Press?

Hotronix is a leader in the manufacturing and development of heat press machines for the custom apparel industry. Their heat presses are used from huge production facilities to side hustle garage operations. They pride themselves in being 4 specific things:

  • Industry innovators
  • Blue Ribbon Customer Service
  • Technology Driven
  • Made in the USA

These 4 tenants have made Hotronix who they are today, the definition of a quality heat press people are happy to own. Hotronix says the following about the company's history, "We were born from the identification of a problem and the need to fix it. In the 1980s, the heat transfer materials sold by Stahls' required precise temperatures and application times – elements which were lacking in the heat presses available at the time. Heat presses often provided uneven pressure, temperature fluctuations, inaccurate timers, and even had cold spots on the heating platen."

The company saw a hole in the market, heat presses that lacked the quality for consistency in production. This is why Hotronix is still known for making a great heat press machine.

How is Hotronix in industry innovator?

There are so many ways to explain why Hotronix Heat Press Machines are innovators in technology, so its probably easy to explain in some very specific examples.

Hotronix Fusion

The Fusion IQ Heat Press

Hotronix does such a good job at explaining the features of the Fusion IQ, its probably best to just quote them directly.
"Functioning as either a swinger or draw press, the 16" x 20" Fusion IQ offers a heat-free workspace, touch screen settings, and live digital time, temperature, and pressure readouts. Plus, with industry-exclusive Threadability™, you can position a garment once, rotate, and decorate any area."

This is the only heat press on the market that provides the end-user with operation that can adapt to their business needs. One example of this is the ability for it to function as a drawer or a swing away. These two functions mean the heat press can change and adapt to your works space. The ability to work away from the heat is a huge win for machine operators. Traditional clam shell heat press machines mean you are working right under the heat. This is not only uncomfortable but can be a burn hazard as well. Clam shell heat press machines are vital for some businesses, but not others.

The Fusion IQ can also track performance and print productivity. You can access an online portal and pull reports. How is your team doing? How are you performing? Did changing something in your workflow help you press more garments? All this information at your fingertips lets you be in control of your workflow performance.

Interchangeable platens are another key feature of the Fusion IQ. No tools are required to change platens, just pop off one size and move to another. This means you can go from printing large t-shirts to sleeves to baby clothes to can coolers to shoes. Just change your platen and your production transforms.

Programable controls are also a huge innovation. The Fusion IQ Heat Press has a touch screen control panel with tons of settings. This makes it easy to program setting for all your heat transfer settings. Go from a DigitalHeat FX Transfer to Heat Transfer Vinyl in a few taps. You don't have to remember all the settings, times or temperatures. The heat press machine has it all programed for your team.

There are even more innovations with the Hotronix Fusion IQ, too many to name. Learn More about the Hotronix Fusion IQ 

The 360 IQ Hat Heat Press

Another example of innovation is in the 360 IQ hat press. To quote Hotronix again, "This innovative heat press' 360° print area lets you print the front, back, and sides of a cap without removing it from the press."

This press features a molded platen which reduces creasing and scorching, one of the toughest things to deal with in heat pressing hats. No other heat press machine can come close to this platen design.

You can also independently control heat from the top and bottom platens on this Hotronix Heat Press. Items like patches and rubber emblems can be a challenge to apply without proper heat control. Hotronix saw this need and developed a heat press with the perfect solution.

Much like the Fusion IQ mentioned above, there are too many things to discuss about the 360 IQ press for this article. Learn more about the 360 IQ Hat Press.

Technology Driven Heat Press Machines

As described above Hotronix is all about innovation. Isn't technology just a part of that? Of course, but its worthy of discussion on its own. Success with heat press production not just about creating new ideas, and creative solutions.  It's also about creating technology that is reliable and efficient for the end user.

Hotronix Heat Press machines are piece by piece designed to have technology that is proven, reliable and of course innovative. A heat press machine is a simple tool, it applies heat and pressure to something. It's designed to transfer art from one place to another. Although the design is simple, it needs to be precise and powerful. Here are some ways Hotronix delivers the best technology into their heat press machines.

Floating Platens – Hotronix platens are designed to float. This is specifically engineered to provided even pressure corner to corner during operation. This is a key feature for perfect presses every time.

Heating elements – Debatably the most important part of the heat press are the elements that provide heat, located in the upper platen. Hotronix Heat Presses have elements spaced no more than 2 inches apart to ensure even heating.

Thick heat platens – ¾ inch thick platens means more insulation and heat retention. Technology is not just about circuit boards, but also the small details in construction.

Accurate Temperature Readings – Hotronix Heat Presses use a platinum-coated RTD probe that is inserted into the top of the heat platen. This measures the actual surface temperature of the platen +/- 2 degrees.

Platen Coatings – Each platen is coated with a durable non-stick coating for easy cleaning. This helps with the longevity of the press in the event you accidentally get something on the upper platen.

Powder Coated machines – Powder coating is more durable than paint and keeps your machine looking newer, longer.

Pressure and temperature reading – Digital temperature and pressure display / adjustment make t-shirt printing so much easier. Guessing is no longer needed.

Auto-Open platens – Some Hotronix Heat Press Machines come with an auto-open feature. This will open the heat press automatically when the timer is up.

Air-Operated Machines – The pinnacle of automation is air-operated machines. Just the push of a button opens and closes the press. This provides accurate and effortless machine operation.
