For the past 4 decades, Geo Knight has been perfecting the clamshell style heat transfer press to meet business and manufacturing needs of customers worldwide.
The Digital Knight clamshell heat presses feature a state-of-the-art control system and heavy-duty solid steel welded framework. These machines boasts a lifetime warranty on the heat platen, and an unprecedented 3-year warranty on the heat-control electronics. The heat platens use SuperCoil-Microwinding™ heater technology, a system of embedded heater windings that wind tightly and closely together throughout the entire platen for extremely even heat, fast recovery & fast heat up times.
These clamshell presses open much wider and lift up farther away from the rear of the pad, staying away from user hands. The extra long & wide handle and smooth gas shock lift make for the easiest and safest clamshells to operate on the market!
Available in two models the DK16 and the DK20. The DK16 is our mid-sized clamshell, in a 14" x 16" size and the DK20 is the largest clamshell design offered with an extra large 16" x 20" opening. Both units open for full access to the lower bottom table. It is important to note that the back of the heat platen raises above and away the bottom table, providing better access than other clamshell presses. The frame support allows operators to slide shirts over the table with complete drape space around and underneath the loading area.
This press is idea for environments with space limitations, and for users who need more portability and mobility than swing-away presses. The Digital Knight DK 16 and DK20 presses are a low cost solution for a commercial grade heavy-duty digital heat press machine.
Both the DK 16 and the DK20 are also offered in an upgraded automatic release press with the "Pop-Up" upgrade. This allows for faster semi-automatic garment production at a very reasonable price. The auto-release "Pop-Up" version allows your Digital Knight clamshell act like a semi-automatic, air operated press, without the compressor! Simply close the press as you normally do, and at the end of the digital timing cycle the press releases automatically. It also also features the "Hover" feature; when the handle is lowered without fully clamping the machine, the press will hover over the work, usually needed for curing purposes. At the end of the time cycle the press releases automatically as usual.
