The SUB-2000 sublimation heat press features a 204cm x 35.5cm (80" x 14" approx) heated platen area that will sublimate finished sizes up to 198cm x 34cm depending on the shrinkage characteristics of the materials used. We can customize these dimensions for a minor upgrade price.
It features a custom designed heating system that is specifically designed for sublimation printing with more evenly distributed heat than standard blanket type heaters.
It comes with one specially designed sublimation cassette that features a custom, low durometer, high temperature silicone equalization coating on one side to equalize pressure for the most even transfers possible. Additional cassettes can be ordered for even faster cycling or to enable cooling cycles in the cassettes when printing certain base material and other unstable substrates (1 in the press, 1 or more cooling).
Typical transfer times range from 4 - 12 minutes per print depending on the press temperature and heat stability of the material being sublimated.

Note: Our machines are not UL rated. We use UL, CE and CSA parts throughout but we do not represent the machines as UL rated or otherwise. Only certain grades and types of material can be sublimated and we recommend testing your exact combination of paper, inks and material prior to committing to production.
