Ideal for Heat Transfer Application & Direct-to-Garment Printing.
Insta’s Model 158P Digital Auto Release heat press offers one of the major benefits of an automatic machine - the auto-open feature - in the lightweight, lower cost, ergonomic design of a manual clamshell heat press. The Model 158P meets the demands of today’s busy retail environment and is also a practical solution to use as a post-curing agent for the expanding digital direct-to-garment marketplace.
Following in the tradition of Insta’s reputation for quality, the Model 158P maintains the ergonomic, compact clamshell style of the Model 138 - and in addition, boasts a time maximizing auto-release feature. After the operator closes the machine, the Model 158P will automatically open once the pre-set time has elapsed. This allows the operator to maximize his/her time while the transfer is dwelling, without having to worry about burning the garment.
Improved Auto Release
With the use of a strategically placed electromagnet, the upper platen automatically releases at the end of the time cycle, without the use of an air compressor. The 158P's new dual gas springs lift the upper platen gently - for a smooth and quiet release.
Dressable Lower Platen
The base of the Model 158P has been designed to allow users to dress garments over the lower platen without stretching them out. Simply load the shirt onto the platen and feed the bottom of the garment through the clearance underneath the lower platen
Interchangeable Lower Platen
The Model 158P uses a simple pin system which allows you to easily change out the lower platen and drop in smaller accessory platens for printing on pockets, sleeves, pant legs, back neck and much more. Interchangeable lower platens provide you with tremendous printing versatility, all in one machine.
Central Pressure Source
Its pressure source is strategically placed over the center of the upper platen and uses struts to drive that pressure out to all corners. The result is an even and heavy duty distribution of pressure that is unmatched by other heat presses in the market today.
This clamshell's sleek profile and compact design make it an ideal machine for use in areas with limited work space.
