Description

The Ricoma cap heat press is the best press on the market for transferring designs onto trucker, fitted, snapback, strapback, flexfit, 5-panel, and visor caps. 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 cap. Not to mention the auto-release function that lets you easily complete other tasks, like DTG printing or using an embroidery machine, and pump out orders at the same time. The Ricoma cap heat press outshines the competition when it comes to heat transfer applications. It can do digitally printed heat transfers, screen printed transfers, heat transfer vinyl, sublimation, rhinestones, embroidery patches, and more. Along with transferring designs, you can even pair this heat press with an embroidery machine to create amazing mixed media designs. 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 cap heat press, the platen’s nonstick surface guarantees an easy cleanup.

Could be better

So far it’s ok. The first time using it, we used it heat press visors. The upper piece of the press kept making black marks on the cap.. we had to use a sheet of paper to place over the cap so it wouldn’t get marked up. The bottom of the piece where you place the hat over doesn’t stay still. There’s nothing to lock it in place, which makes it hard to keep your transfer in place.
