German company Digitran (12-H70) has launched its new DuoVolt electric double heat press at Fespa Global Print Expo.

The new machine, which is commercially available immediately, has two work surfaces, meaning pressing and preparation can take place simultaneously, greatly increasing productivity compared to a single press.

Thanks to an evenly heated surface and balanced contact pressure, the entire surface can be used. Additionally, the underside of the heating surface has a non-stick coating.

In automatic mode, three individual times can be set for pre-pressing, pressing, and fixing, as well as the speed for the carriage. In this mode, the machine takes over all movement sequences according to these values, so the user can concentrate fully on the textile and transfers.

The substructure underneath the base platens leaves room for t-shirts, polo shirts, or other textiles to be easily threaded. Due to the large selection of base platens, various textiles and transfer sizes can be printed, from back numbers to neck emblems. And with a maximum temperature of 230°C, the heat press can be used for both transfers and sublimation applications.

Digitran managing director Michael Kammann told Printweek: “This machine is without any compressed air, it’s fully electric – so all you need is a plug. And it comes with a manual mode, automatic mode, and tons of different base plates.”

Digitran is also showing its FlexLine DTF600 MK-II direct-to-film (DTF) printer, which enables fast and high-resolution printing of textile transfers for various applications from t-shirts to bags. This machine was originally launched at Fespa Global Print Expo 2023.

The 2024 show runs until Friday (22 March) at the RAI in Amsterdam.
