The 15" x 15" S-450P semi-automatic (clamshell) press with digital pressure readout was designed for heat transfer and sublimation. With the added feature of digital pressure readout, operators can get consistent pressure between different substrates instead of relying on feel and guess work. The press also opens automatically allowing quick hands free operation.

The Hix S-450P is the most reliable auto-opening heat transfer machine on the market. Requiring no air feed, this semi-automatic press utilizes an electronic release mechanism with a gas shock assist to guarantee opening at the end of the print cycle. Hands free opening saves time and effort allowing the operator to apply more transfers in a shift with less effort than a traditional heat transfer press.
