Imagine a heat press that lets decorators apply any type of emblem, patch or transfer on all sides of a cap without removing it, and can be used to decorate any size, shape or style of headwear without ever changing a platen. The new Hotronix® 360 IQ™ Hat Press combines innovation with patent-pending technology to offer features that make cap printing faster and easier than ever before. 
Thanks to a molded platen and lower heat platen technology, this one-size-fits-all press eliminates crease lines and scorching. The Auto Open feature prevents over application, and a heated lower platen promotes a quicker bond between adhesive and fabric, making it possible to apply thicker, textured patches and emblems that can’t take upper platen heat in as fast as 20 seconds. Both heat platens are independently controlled. 

The press features a wide opening for a heat-free workspace and makes it easier to safely load/unload hats. It’s also possible to operate with one hand. State-of-the-art Fusion IQ™ technology offers cloud-based performance tracking that keeps managers informed of machine and operator productivity. 

“With the Hotronix® 360 IQ™ Hat Press, shop owners need only three feet of table space and 110-volt outlet to offer complex hat decorating services that will open new markets and set them apart from the competition,” says Ben Robinson, Vice President Equipment Manufacturing. There is a lifetime warranty on the heating element, a five-year warranty on the framework, two years on the circuit board, and parts and labor are covered for one year.
