Now, Model-7D EZPress™ users can apply barcode labels or text labels to personal clothing at 330° F in only four seconds.
Our original presses and all competitors’ presses apply labels at 380° to 420° in eight to 12 seconds. Our new press gives you a major improvement in productivity, resulting in half of the normal application time and a temperature reduction of over 50°. This lower temperature will dramatically reduce the risk of damaging delicate and expensive garments.
We accomplished lowering the temperature by manufacturing our Model-7D PopUpPress™ with the hot platen surface electroplated with a new extremely durable Teflon diamond plate. This diamond plate will not be damaged by metal buttons, snaps or zippers, and it conducts heat much better than the old-fashioned Teflon stickers. The Teflon stickers we eliminated were made from several layers of thermal insulating material that slowed down the heat transfer to the fabric. The new diamond plating is thin and conducts heat better than aluminum.
But, how did we reduce the application dwell time? That was also easy. As you may remember from high school physics, you cannot heat anything above 212° until you boil all of the moisture out of it. This is a big problem with clothing. All clothing absorbs moisture, sometimes a lot of moisture. Our old heat seal machines and all competitors’ machines have the same problem. When you squeeze the garment and label between the upper and lower platens, there is no easy path for the moisture to evaporate. Therefore, you must squeeze the garment under the platen for eight to 12 seconds while the moisture evaporates through the thin crack between the upper and lower platens.
Our new Model 7V Ventilated Lower Platen™ has a moisture transparent pad with a disposable fabric cover. It is mounted on top of a patent pending ventilated aluminum brick with ventilating grooves under the pad to allow the moisture to escape. Therefore, when you press down the 330° top platen onto the ventilated lower platen, the steam immediately evaporates out of the fabric and passes through the moisture transparent pad allowing the label and garment to be immediately heated to the proper application temperature.
The Suggested Retail Prices for these new presses are:
The Model 7-D EZPress™ with EZWizard Firmware™ is $1,295 and the Model 7D PopUpPress™ with EZWizard Firmware™ is $1,595. However, there is a little bad news. These new platens cannot be used on Model-7 Presses™. Our advanced EZWizard Firmware™ is very important when applying labels at low temperature and short dwell time because it detects cold or damp fabric and automatically extends the dwell time whenever necessary. This ensures a perfect label application every time. However, most of the time, when the fabric is dry the EZWizard™ does not extend the dwell time (this is also a bit timesaver).
You can easily upgrade any existing Model-7 EZPress™ or Model-7 PopUpPress™ and take advantage of this time saving, low temperature label application technology. For additional information, please call Diane Rue at (877) 906-1818 or email [email protected].
