Insta’s Model 288 Manual Swing Away heat press machine is, with its 20"x 25" platens, our largest manual machine. The 288 can be used in the sublimation market because of its oversized platens and its ability to generate even temperature and pressure – which are essential in the application of sublimation transfers. It can also be used by contractors for the application of various types of heat transfers. The 288 is chosen for its fast heat recovery, accurate temperature, even pressure and its ability to achieve consistent results under 24/7 use.
Swing-Away Design: Its swing-away design makes this an extremely user-friendly machine by giving you completely unobstructed access to the lower platen while you work. Loading garments and placing transfers are hassle-free.
Fully Dressable: The Model 288’s new H-frame designs allows for dressing of garments onto the lower platen with complete clearance under the lower platen. The swing-away feature allows for unobstructed access to the platen while you work. Loading garments and placing transfers is hassle-free.
Lower Platens: Its lower platen can be easily removed with the quick-change mechanism and replaced with smaller accessory platens for printing on pockets, sleeves, pant legs, back-neck and much more. Interchangeable lower platens provide you with tremendous printing versatility, all in one machine.
Cast-In Tubular Heating Element: The tubular heating element is cast into the aluminum upper platen, heating the metal from within. The element is coiled throughout the upper platen to provide a reliable and even circulation of heat out to all corners.
