S-650P Auto Release© Overview

The 16"x20" S-650P semi-automatic (clamshell) press with digital pressure readout was designed for Direct Garment Printers. With the added feature of digital pressure readout, operators can get consistent pressure between different substrates instead of relying on feel and guess work. The press also opens automatically allowing quick hands free operation.

The HIX S-650P 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.

The HIX S-650P has the capability for the operator to make a quick change of the lower platen to a 15”x15” platen, 16”x20” platen or a specialty platen designed for cuffs, sleeves, collars and pockets. The lower platen has a simple pull-pin interchangeable system that make changeover between platens fast and easy. Different platens allows for transfers to a variety of garments without the need for a specialty press for each size.
