Build and Features
The FanicerStudio press comes with a typical heat press build seen across the market. A power box, to which is attached two ceramic plates and a handle for pressing one plate onto the other. The grip is rubber and intended for multiple uses. It runs with a voltage of 110, so make sure your fuses are suitable.
It powers at 1800 watts, typical for the type of machine. The temperature ranges from 0 to 699 degrees fahrenheit. There is a digitised display where a user can enter their specifications for heat and timing.
It comes with a teflon attachment too, certain brands don’t come with this additional meaning a user has to use a covering for each individual garment press. The press can be used for creating tshirts by fan clubs, designers or students. However, it may not stand up to heavy industrial usage and is better suited for individual hobbyist rather than mass production.
There are improvements over the old model too. There’s now a sheet and coating on the plate for added safety and security. The silicon rubber base is now also glued down so that it doesn’t shift when you’re moving it around. It adds to the rigidity of the design and lends user confidence in the product because it’s less likely to slip.
The product opens upwards too, whereas some open downwards or both ways. It measures 15 by 15 inch, so it’s ideal for shirts and other similar garments but not so convenient for bigger processes or items of clothing. The product can apply transfers to shirts, but it can also be used for changing mouse mats, jigsaw puzzles, ID badges and even ceramic tiles.
