The Digital Knight DK20A 16×20 AUTO Clamshell Heat Press represents a pinnacle in heat press technology and convenience, combining the robust capabilities of a large manual clamshell with innovative auto-release functionality. This feature-rich machine transforms the manual clamshell operation into a semi-automatic experience, eliminating the need for a compressor and making it a standout choice for high-volume production environments.

Innovative Auto-Release Feature: The DK20A is equipped with an auto-release “Pop-Up” mechanism that automatically opens the press at the end of the digital timing cycle. This not only enhances efficiency but also reduces operator fatigue, making it ideal for prolonged use in busy settings.

Hover Capability: Unique to the DK20A, the “Hover” feature allows the press to hover over the substrate without full clamping. This is particularly useful for curing processes where direct contact is not desired. After the timer completes, the press releases automatically, ensuring consistent results every time.

User-Friendly Design: The clamshell opens wide to allow full access to the lower table, facilitating easy layout and preparation of garments. The heat platen’s design ensures it moves away from the bottom table, providing superior access compared to traditional clamshell presses. The inclusion of an all-thread table and the ability to interchange bottom tables enhances the machine’s versatility for various sizes and types of substrates.

Digital Precision Controls: Fully digital temperature controls allow for precise heat settings ranging from 32° to 600°F, ensuring adaptability for a wide array of materials. The digital timer, along with dual pre-press timers and a digital pressure bar graph, provides unparalleled control over the pressing process.

Lightweight and Portable: Weighing in at just 103 lbs, the DK20A is notably portable for a press of its size and capability, making it an excellent option for operations that require mobility or have limited space.

Durability and Reliability: Built on a solid steel framework with hardened high-strength pivot points, the DK20A is designed for durability and long-term use. SuperCoil-Microwinding™ heater technology ensures even heat distribution across the platen, critical for consistent pressing results.

Comprehensive Warranty and Support: The DK20A comes with a lifetime warranty on the heat platen, a five-year warranty on the frame, and a three-year warranty on the controller, backed by free lifetime technical support, ensuring peace of mind and reliable service for the life of the press.

Specifications for Consideration: The press operates on 1800W/15A/110V, with an option for 220V international configurations. Its dimensions are 36″L x 17″W x 16″H, making it a sizable yet manageable addition to any production environment.

Ideal for businesses seeking to streamline their heat pressing operations with a blend of manual control and automatic efficiency, the DK20A 16×20 AUTO Clamshell Heat Press by Digital Knight is a top-tier choice for quality, reliability, and innovation.
