Decorating with a heat press is the easiest, most cost-effective way to run a T-shirt printing business. It allows for decoration at scale on a wide variety of items and fabrics by applying Stahls' HTV and Custom Heat Transfers.
If you are producing a large volume of printed garments, you need the most advanced heat press to handle this. The most advanced manual heat press available with the greatest build quality is the Hotronix Fusion IQ.
Combining swing & draw functionality and superior threadability you can vastly increase efficiency, allowing you to do big volume jobs with confidence.
The Fusion IQTM range is the only Heat Press to have touch screen wifi technology, so you can control your press from anywhere in the world. The Fusion IQTM comes with Dual function - swing or draw motion technology. To create a heat-free workspace.
A brand-new controller with a larger, higher resolution screen makes it easier than ever to modify settings and save recipes.
Dual Function Heat Press
Swing & Draw - The Fusion IQTM comes with Dual function - swing or draw motion technology. To create a heat-free workspace.
Over Centre Pressure – The Fusion IQTM has Stahls’ Hotronix® patented over centre pressure adjustment. Having over the centre adjustment allows the pressure to be distributed evenly throughout the platen. Giving you the most consistent press available.
Staff Consideration - If you are doing large volumes of heat printing, the impact of this on staff needs to be a major consideration. By having a dual function press, it is considerably kinder on the user.
Fusion IQ Efficiency
Threadability™ - The Fusion IQ has the Hotronix® EZ-On platen design. This means you have a greater clearance area under the platen. By having a heat-free area to thread your garment, you will be able to place your garment with more accuracy. And save time getting it on/ off the station.
Quick Change Platens – The Fusion IQ has quick-change platens. With a simple pull of a lever, you can easily remove your platen and add in a smaller or different shaped platen. Fusion IQTM presses are compatible with 13 different standard platens and 4 different Power Platens. Use a different platen to create a smaller print area and gain greater accuracy.
Perfect for DTG printers – You can use a Fusion IQ for pre-treatment and post-curing.
Fusion IQ Controller
Real-Time Feedback – With the Fusion IQTM Controller you get Live digital time, temperature, and pressure readouts on a large touch screen controller. Time, temperature and pressure are the three most important factors with heat printing. If you can control these, you will have the perfect press every time. With the Fusion IQTM controller from Hotronix®, you have more control over these, than with any other Heat Press.
Touch Screen Controls – With the intuitive IQ controller. You have the power to easily set and change your stations at your fingertips.
Wi-Fi Enabled - Register your Fusion IQ and access the Hotronix® Online Portal. Here you can manage users, generate usage reports, and troubleshoot issues.
Stats Portal - Online access to reporting, including total impressions, active/idle time, and average cycle time.
