HOSS© Overview

The fully automatic, four 16"x20" alternating work station, HOSS was created for the high end production type applications. The HOSS can produce up to 600 finished shirts per hour!

The HOSS is a revolutionary High Output Super Shuttle heat transfer machine. On a 6 second transfer time, it can produce up to 600 finished shirts per hour* with two people operating. The HOSS is fully automatic, all the operator(s) need to do is load the shirt/transfer on the pallet to the right, it cycles automatically. Then load a shirt/transfer on the left pallet, it cycles automatically and the right pallet returns. Peel the transfer. Repeat the process again.

*Production formula: 6 sec. machine cycle + 6 sec. transfer time = 12 sec. total time per transfer. 12sec. per transfer = 5 transfers per min. x two heat heads = 10 transfers per min. = 600 transfers per hr.
