Hotronix® Heated Lower Heat Press Platen

No more scorched garments.

Applying heat to the underside of threaded garments allows you to apply transfers with your upper platen at a lower temperature, reducing the risk of scorch marks on heat-sensitive fabrics.
Compatible with 16" x 20" Hotronix® Auto Clam, MAXX® Clam, and Air FUSION heat presses. (Not compatible with Hotronix FUSION or draw presses).

For heat presses with a machine born-on date before 2014, call Stahls’ Hotronix at 800.727.8520.
