Features Of The Hotronix Fusion


The Hotronix Fusion is a high spec heat press with features for quicker work flow and a higher quality heat transfer press. Many of these features deserve their own section to best deal with the capabilities – so that’s what we’ve got now!


Threadable Platen


Threadability is a feature that enables you to slip your garment over the bottom plate of the press. This means you are able to press only the side of your t-shirt or jumper that is receiving the transfer.


This is good because it means there is less likelihood of seams or zippers disrupting the pressure of the press. If there are lumps and bumps in your garment, or it is not completely flat, the pressure is unlikely to be even. This could mean a less than best adhesion of your transfer. Heat press pillows also help pressing on uneven surfaces.



Multiple Sized Platens


The Fusion comes with a 16 x 20 base plate which is suitable for pressing all of sizes of garments. It can also be positioned either way. For example, with the 20 inch side to the front or to the side (in portrait or landscape position) – a handy feature allowing you to adapt the press to your garment.


There are also multiple sizes of lower platen that you can order, including:

  • 7 inch round
  • 6 x 10
  • 8 x 10
  • 11 x 15

You are also able to order custom heat platens from Stahls’.


Dual Style Heat Press


This is a dual style heat press – it can be used as a draw or swing-away press, or as a combination of both! Both are excellent styles that can be used as best suits your situation and preference.


The style you decide to use on a given job may depend on the item you are pressing. Perhaps a thick sweatshirt would be better done threaded and draw style, while a commemorative dish towel would be done unthreaded and swing-away – don’t ask me who’s getting commemorative dish towels made up though!



Touch Screen Display


If you watched the video above, you will have seen that the time and temperature setting is done on a touch-screen display. This screen displays a lot of information, including:

  • The temperature you have set the press
  • The temperature it is currently at
  • The time you have set the press for
  • The pressure the machine is currently at
  • The name of the preset function you are on
  • A press counter (literally, how many presses and pre-presses you’ve done)
  • The date and time


Digital Pressure Readings


The pressure is set by turning a knob on the top of the press while it is open. However, this press is special because you get a digital read as to what pressure the machine is set to.


Further Features


Besides that, the Hotronix Fusion also has the following features:

  • Quick change for swapping platens
  • Auto on/off
  • A twin set timing ability allowing you to preset preheating and application
  • A beautiful cast aluminium alloy frame
  • Finished with a durable powder coat
  • Hotronix Fusion User Manual
