TYPES OF TRANSFER PRESSES
The types of transfer press and what it is used for, you will find them in this article.
Many of the customization techniques require the use of a transfer press at some point in the process.
Both for the sublimation process and for the application of transfers, vinyl, strass etc, heat and pressure are needed for the transfer to take place.

Types of transfer heat press:
- Manual press of manual opening and closing for short productions.
- Semi-automatic press with manual closing and automatic opening by means of an electro magnet. This type of iron allows you to get away from the work area without exposing the garment to the risk of burning, since at the end of the programmed transfer time, it will automatically open itself.
- Automatic heat presses, here we must differentiate two types, electric presses and pneumatic presses. The pneumatic press, with automatic opening and closing by means of a button and with a pressure of 8 bars, exerted by an air compressor, are the perfect work tool for large productions, both for textile transfer and rigid.
- Electric presses, the pressure is carried out by a motor and is regulated through a motor control panel. The movement mechanism of the opening and closing plate is driven by a motor.
Once we have decided what type of press we need, we must verify what size fits us. A standard size is 40x50 cm.
From here, and depending on your type of production, we have plates up to 1m x 1.20m.
