The Hotronix Auto Open 16” x 16” Clam Heat Press machine offers settings of a professional quality press in a portable design, perfect for both beginner designers and small businesses. The 16X16 is compact, but still offers the industry standard size for tee shirt applications. Their patented magnetic assist lock down and auto open technology allows for the user to operate the press with no fatigue over an extended period of use and ensure the production of a quality product.

The design of the Hotronix Auto Open Clam Heat Press machine allows for a fully portable device while carrying enough weight to ensure that the press will remain in position and stable as you press.

    The Best

    Why buy the rest, when Stahl Hotronix is one of the best. Tried the cheaper brand models the quality is not there, they don't stand behind there heat press. They are very heavy look in to buying the stand, with the stand you can move it around anywhere you want.

    Love it!

    I received this heat press as a gift from my husband. We looked at other brands, cheaper models etc. but decided on this one, I am so happy we made the right choice. I love it! It's a quality machine, was easy to set up, and is easy to use. Such a game changer! I had to call Customer Service for breaker info, and they were awesome. I'm so glad I paid the extra money and went with a quality machine, I love it.
