Australia-based Impression Technology has introduced the ThermTX 44-inch rotary heat press calender. According to the company, the 3-in-1 calender is affordable and easy to use in a variety of textile applications including roll-to-roll, cut-piece and dye fixing for direct-to-textile. The solid-steel roll features a 7.8-inch drum and three mandrels for roll feeding and three mandrels for take-up. Advanced heat sensors maintain consistent heat, and the fully self-contained unit does not require air.
“The 44-inch dye sub market has experienced tremendous growth and we have had many users approach us about offering a 44-inch calender which could meet the needs of both beginners and professionals,” said Stephen Richardson, Impression Technology. “In fact, the designers of the ThermTX 44 used focus groups to ensure the unit was not only easy-to-use for those just starting, but also sported the most advanced features required by sophisticated and demanding users. This unit is positioned perfectly for the 44-inch dye sub market and offers incredible value and bundling opportunities with entry level sublimation printer hardware.”
