Graphics One LLC, Sun Valley, California, announces the release of the new Mogk PTM-110 manual heat press, a unit developed specifically for the mid-range market. With an overall transfer area of 33”x 43” the PTM-110 is the perfect complement to medium range and smaller 44-inch and 54-inch dye sub printers from EPSON, Mutoh and Mimaki.
“Mogk developed this product to our requirements in less than six months,” according to Dan Barefoot, President of Graphics One. “We have been limited in size by smaller units which did not achieve the standard size of 30” x 40” and by units which were out of the price range of most our users. Additionally, the current large format heat presses either require a step stool to reach the platen handle, or the strength of a body builder to close the press for transfers. The PTM-110 is simple to operate and needs minimal physical effort when using the ez-glide pull-out drawer and the substrate mounting system,” noted Barefoot.
Designed and produced in Blumanau, Brazil, Mogk has a long history of producing solid and reliable heat transfer calendars and heat presses. The new PTM-110 is no exception and is full of capabilities found on far more expensive heat presses. With premium features such as adjustable pressure, digital controls, ez-glide drawer, ergonomic-assist platen closing, precise full platen pressure and heavy duty steel frame, the unit offers the best performance / value in the mid-range category.
The Mogk PTM-110 Heat Press has a list price of $7,995 and starts shipping January, 2017. The unit will make its world premier at the ISS Long Beach show in January, 2017.
