Description

The 15” x 15” Ricoma flat heat press is perfect for those interested in starting a print shop or expanding their custom apparel business. You can transfer designs onto t-shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops, totes, mousepads, and so much more. This high-pressure clamshell style heat press is easy-to-use, durable, and can handle heavy-duty and frequent usage. You can be confident your transfers will come out perfectly with the heat press’s clamp mechanism, which provides even heat dispersion and pressure across the garment. Not to mention the auto-release function and drawer-style lower platen that make transferring designs and pumping out orders a breeze. Along with transferring designs, you can pair this heat press with an embroidery machine to create amazing mixed media designs. And if you have a DTG printer, this heat press is perfect for curing your prints and will give you a high-quality finished product customers will love. But one of the most important features of the machine is the advanced 5-inch digital touchscreen that gives you control over everything. With this simple yet high-tech panel, you can choose your language, set your date/time, change between Fahrenheit and Celsius, and view your production statistics. And when you’re done using the flat heat press, the platen’s nonstick surface guarantees an easy cleanup.

Auto-Release Function
No more sitting around and babysitting your heat press! Unlike manual heat presses, all of Ricoma’s heat presses have an auto-release feature. This means that when the timer runs out, the heat press automatically lifts the heating plate. A feature like this saves you time by allowing you to confidently complete other tasks, like DTG printing or using an embroidery machine, without worrying that the garment will be pressed longer than the timer allots.
Drawer-Style Lower Platen
The slide-out platen on Ricoma’s flat heat presses is a feature designed with safety and comfort in mind. It gives you more room to lay down your garment on the press without putting your arms and hands underneath the heat. You’ll reduce the chance of burning yourself and be able to quickly press garments without worrying about the hot plate.
Use for More Than Just Heat Transfers
The Ricoma flat heat press is useful for so much more than just heat transfer vinyl. You can use it to transfer sublimation designs, to cure prints made from a DTG printer, and more. Not to mention, you can combine the heat press with other apparel decoration equipment like a Ricoma embroidery machine to create mixed-media products that will attract customers and raise profits.

Better than I tought it would be.

This is a very easy to use heat press. I was having trouble pushing down on my old one to get correct pressure. I can do this one with one hand! I love the automatic release feature. Very satisfied.

Well worth the wait!

Easy Peasy for a rookie. I have a 8 year old online store of handmade beauty products & soon to open my 1st storefront. Adding apparel is one of the staples for my expansive. I’ve only used old-school iron with a profession hand held iron. But knowing I need to scale my biz to outsize production and maximize units and acquire depth in turnover? I knew I had to invest in a heat press. I had several in mg cart, pressed pay. Paid for a few and quickly cancelled the sale on Amazon. As the reviews were 4.5 stars but NONE of them legit or real. The actual reviews tho low in number read poorly and I could pull the trigger for well over a year. UNTIL….. I saw a uTube video by Katrina Creations on this heat press. And then I looked up the other few on uTube as well. After the truth these guys gave in their reviews and seeing how well packed it was (1 of the worst on Amazon) I knew this was the press for me! It was $500 over my budgeted amount I wanted to pay. But I’ve used it for the 1st time and it is the REAL DEAL. Well made, crafted with sturdy materials and the touch screen, pull out plate, and automatic release? OMG… I’m soooo incredibly glad I waited!!! Because this is definitely the heat press I need to help scale my business. Thank you for a well made product that is still a wee bit pricey, but worth every penny. I’m grateful your developers made this heat press a great PARTNER for tenured apparel businesses, but also equally great for beginner apparel businesses like mine. I’m skilled with developing Haircare, skincare, mens grooming and even cosmetics in the lab. So I was a bit intimidated to get started with the tee shirt side of the business. As Black Business owner with so many oppositions, I’m thrilled I found one piece of my climb to be easy peasy and totally in love with this press and feel so much better as I enter this next level of growth for my business.

Great machine!

Love !

So far it’s been great! After looking at so many machines online I’m so happy I chose this one ! The auto open function allows me to work on something else meanwhile the press does it’s thing :). Its slide out drawer makes me feel safe , no need to worry about putting my hands right under the heated plate. And it’s so easy to set and save parameters . Although instructions where not included In my box it wasn’t difficult for me to find online. Overall , very happy with my purchase !
