Laser temp guns are not accurate!!! The only type that is good enough for checking press temp for DTG is a full contact thermal probe meter. I use both and find my 100$ laser to be within 5 degrees, someday and 50 degrees other. If you do use a laser it must be within 6 inches of the platen and held at a 90 degree angle. A rough calibration check can be done by checking boiling water, 212 F at sea level as elevation increases the temp goes down, there are calculators on the Internet to get that number perfect. Hint always use fresh batteries.
Clue, no heat press manufacturer, good ones anyway, use non contact temperature meters. All are full contact.
