On March 9, 2012 we unveiled the Hotronix Air Fusion to the world at the Atlantic City Imprinted Sportswear Show. We are in booth 602 and 603. Look for the big boxing ring. If you are at the show, you should stop by and see it in action. Look for me and I would be glad to show you how it works. If I’m not there, go up and try it for yourself. Especially if you do Direct to Garment printing–see below to find out why. Even if you’ve never used a heat press before, this one won’t bite. It’s one of the easiest presses to use in the world, don’t let it’s sleek good looks and the air compressor scare you! If you’re not ready to spend $3800 on a press (and I don’t blame you if you’re not), we have plenty of other great Hotronix presses that can get the job done. (We have already have pre-orders for over 300 Air Fusion presses!)
Here’s what you need to know:
The Air Fusion™ combines the user-friendly features of the Hotronix® Fusion with the power of air to bring you the most technologically advanced auto-open heat press in the world. Perfect for high volume and specialty decorators, it’s designed to enable faster, easier heat printing for all users. The patented Auto-Adjust™ pressure feature makes switching between t-shirts and thicker sweatshirts a breeze. And a fully “threadable” platen lets you slip a garment on in seconds and print on both sides without removing it from the press. The adjustable stand lets you quickly adjust press height for any user and the hands-free, auto-swing opening cuts down on operator fatigue and prevents ruined garments. The Hotronix® Air Fusion™ makes heat printing simple, intuitive and dare we say it—FUN. Isn’t it time to maximize your production efficiency and make garment decoration easier than ever?
Crisper, Clearer Direct-To-Garment Results
With 120 PSI of printing power, the Air Fusion™ is perfect for pre-treating and curing garments for direct-to-garment printing. 120 PSI is needed to flatten the fibers on the garment and provide a smooth, even surface for direct-to-garment inks. Prints actually look brighter and crisper, giving you the best possible results—you’ll notice an improvement immediately.
Rust Free, Powder-Coated
The direct-to-garment pre-treatment process creates additional moisture, which can interfere with equipment sensors or cause rusting on inferior presses. Hotronix Air Fusion™ has a corrosion-free aluminum frame and tough powder-coated finish that actually combats moisture and won’t rust.
Presses aren’t ready to ship until sometime in May, but if you want one, order now. It is a fantastic heat press that would make an excellent addition to any shop looking for ultimate ease of use. And according to our record high number of pre-orders, many of you are.
Wow Ted! It sounds like a very cool machine! Can’t wait to see it in person when it comes to Canada 🙂
