Q: Is it worth getting the Auto Open when it comes to cap presses. We have two flat presses that are Auto Open but is it worth paying the extra money for this one?

Posted On: 5/16/2018 By: Julie

A: Hi Julie, the Auto Open feature is really awesome if you are using the heat presses in an area where you will have to move away a lot. For example, users at a Kiosk, Store Front, or Shirt Shop that requires constant movement. It's great to have a machine that automatically pops open for you so you don't have to be next to it at all times. This is really depending on how you operate in your workshop.
Q: Is this press made to be able to hover over a product (non-contact), or does it need to completely press to the base in order to operate properly?

Posted On: 8/30/2017 By: Kyle

A: This machine does not actually hover as it is a Cap Press machine. This means, the heating element has to make direct contact with the Cap's surface area so it can apply heat and pressure to transfer correctly. Any time you're using a hover press would generally be for curing a screen printed or direct to garment print. When you are trying to heat transfer an application, it must make contact with pressure at all times.
