How to build favorite work tools
Our range of models for transfer presses leaves nothing to be desired. Are you looking for a membrane press with inflatable work table for the optimal positioning of your printing material? - Our models can be converted into a simple transfer press by deactivating the membrane function - two devices in one! Do you have large print jobs to process and need a device that can be operated without fatigue? - Our pneumatic transfer presses always make the right pressure thanks to infinitely variable control. Are you looking for a manual transfer press for small patch prints or a large device to swivel? With us you will find your favourite working tool for results without pressure creases or piercing. Also swivel presses, large format presses and special machines leave our company with satisfied customers. Our most important key to success: individualisation.
We at Fuchs do not just build any transfer press - we build your transfer press!
Through communication with the customer and technical customisation, we create products that harmonise perfectly. Let's talk about the intended use and the application modalities of the desired device. As soon as we have a clear picture of the scope of functions, we will decide on the suitable thermal press model and adapt it to your production targets. This gives you a competitive advantage: the use of reliable, durable and efficient printing and gluing technology. If technical problems occur during operation, our technical support is at your disposal. The modular design of each transfer press allows the cost-effective and time-saving repair of individual functional parts. In case of maintenance and repair (or if you need advice on operation) you can always contact us as the manufacturer directly and reliably - the tedious detour via a dealer is no longer necessary. We give a two-year warranty on every transfer press. For the micanite surface heating we guarantee for life. We deliver all spare parts within 24 hours.
Frequently asked questions about the heat press:
What is a heat press?
A heat press is a machine with which different materials can be bonded together through temperature, pressure and time. The heat press works under heat and pressure and thus transfers the media to transfer objects. The transfer press is most commonly used in textile finishing. A decision is made between different transfer presses, such as manual, semi-automatic, membrane, pneumatic or large format presses.
What pressure should I set for a heat press?
Since every material is different, it is not possible to specify a pressure for every print. However, the contact pressure is usually given to you, as well as the time and temperature. Depending on the printing process, different parameters are required. For pneumatic heat presses, for example, the following rule of thumb applies: Grams per cm²: Length: Width = pressure
Which heat press is the right one for my application?
For a large number of print runs, a pneumatic press is ideal. For printing smaller motifs, a press with a small pressing surface is suitable and for large motifs a press with as large a pressing surface as possible. For beginners, manual presses are usually suitable for cost reasons. A big disadvantage, however, is the pressure setting, because here you can only work by feeling how tightly the press can be locked. In the long run, this can be very tiring. With pneumatic presses or air pressure presses, the pressure can be adjusted exactly. These types of heat presses bring more advantages:
- Exact repeatability
- No effort required
- less wear and tear
- automatic opening
- higher throughput
What is the difference between manual, semi-automatic and pneumatic heat press?
In a manual heat press, the user's force is needed. The heat press must be closed and also opened by hand. In semi-automatic heat press, the machine is closed by hand as in manual heat press. After the time has elapsed, however, it then opens automatically. With pneumatic heat press, no force is required by the operator. The printing process is usually started conveniently via a 2-hand safety control. All pneumatic machines open automatically after the time has elapsed. However, a compressor is required to generate compressed air.
How big should the printing area of heat press be?
Depending on what you want to print, the size of the printing area varies. However, the largest possible printing area is always advantageous, as this allows large as well as small motifs to be transferred to the transfer objects.
Can I print with heat press only on textiles?
The heat presses that we have in our range are ideal for textile printing. However, it must be ensured that these textiles can withstand high temperatures. However, heat press can also be used to print on other materials such as wood, plastic and many more. Heat presses are also used to join different materials by pressure, time and temperature.
How heavy is a heat press?
Depending on the type and size of the heat press, the weight also varies. We offer light heat press with approx. 40 or 60 kg, but also heat press with up to 450 kg.
