The DK3 Digital Mug Press is a specialty heat press made exclusively for pressing mugs. This press is a full wrap-around, handle to handle, top-to-bottom printing mug press. It can press images up to 5" high, and as close as 1/2" from the handle, depending on the mug size.
The DK3 is fully adjustable, accommodating all mugs including 11 oz, 15 oz, 16 oz mugs, steins and stainless steel travel mugs. The press can open extra wide for fast and easy loading and unloading. The thick solid steel framework and die-cast clamp is a heavy duty construction for non-stop use. The clamp assembly can be adjusted for very heavy pressure, allowing for full bleed transfers on even the most demanding mugs. Finally - a mug press that compensates for less than perfectly straight mugs!
As with all Digital Knight presses, the DK3 utilizes a state-of-the-art digital control system with an unprecedented 3-year warranty on the heat-control electronics. With digital temperature, time and programmable presets, cycle counter and many other features, the consistency and productivity of mug printing is maximized.
At the heart of the DK3 is the 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. The DK3 will start up in only a few minutes, and unlike other presses runs constantly at the set temperature, instead of a much lower idle temperature. Unlike other mug presses that use silicone blankets with short lifespans and even shorter warranties, the DK3 boasts an amazing 3-Year / 3,000 mug warranty. The patented stainless steel mug band heater technology Geo Knight is famous for has proven to be far more reliable in the field than traditional methods.
