Questions & Answers

Questions & Answers

Everyone has questions. Tell us yours.

The heat platen on my FUSION® heat press is very loose. Should I tighten it?
The upper platen on most Hotronix® heat presses is designed to "float," which will make it appear to be loose. This is part of the design, allowing for even pressure.
I would like a custom platen. How much do they cost?
Custom platen costs are based on the type of customization that is needed. You can contact Stahls' Hotronix® directly at 800-727-8520 for price inquiries or a quote.
