Description

The 16 x 20 Ricoma flat heat press is perfect for those interested in starting a print shop or expanding their custom apparel business. With its larger platen, you can transfer onto garments of any size: from t-shirts and jackets to 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.

About Ricoma’s 16” x 20” Flat Heat Press

All of Ricoma’s heat presses have an auto-release feature
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.
Slide-out platen on Ricoma’s flat heat presses is a feature designed with safety and comfort in mind
Drawer-Style Lower Platen
The large 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.
Choose from a variety of application methods like heat transfers, screen printed transfers, heat transfer vinyl, and sublimation
Choose From a Variety of Application Methods
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.

Must purchase.

Where to begin so I purchased a 16 x 20 press after doing my research I knew this was the press for me! However after receiving the press it was not working. After phone calls I finally was able to get into with their customer service manager. After our conversation he didn't make any excuses and tried to deflect anything took full responsibility and made it right which is very rare nowadays! They went from never having my business again to earning it the right way! Thank you and PS the press is a amazing press for the price!
