Insta’s New Model 256 Manual Swing-Away machine with 16” x 20” platens swings almost a full 180° to the right - providing you with unobstructed access to the lower platen while you load your garments and place your transfers. The new Quick-Change™ platens allow you to quickly swap your lower platen with any of Insta’s new accessory platens. The quick-change feature also allows you to quickly rotate the lower platen in a matter of seconds to suit your applications.
