Default HeatPress Machine Advise

Hello everyone I would love if you experts could give me some advise on a product. I am going to purchase the GTX Brother at the end of May, meanwhile I would like to have a HeatPress to fulfill some small orders.

Some features I would like to have:

16"x20"
Auto Open
Pressure Readout
Interchangeable Platens
Floatation (maybe)


I've read and watch many tutorial but I can't decide.

Looking forward to your input.

Thank you!

Lucy. Based upon you requirements I would recommend the Hotronix Fusion. It has the features that you mentioned. Other models would not have the pressure readout and the interchangeable platens.

Thanks Ed.

Is the best brand out there the Hotronix?
Do you recommend to have those features for someone starting out?

I am 100% positive I want auto open.

What you recommend is the Fusion IQ ?

I have the hotronix auto clam. I love it! I've had it for years. If something does break, support is amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. Quality and easy to repair. Win win!

Well, alternatively to the manual heat presses, as a suggestion you can have a look on a 2 plate, pneumatic heat press.

I like the Drucktech PHP-45-V-2 optima.
